Notes/Commercial Description:
Authentic wheat beer, brewed in the Southern German tradition, won the Silver Medal in 1997 and the Gold Medal at the 2000 in Denver, Colorado. Penn Weizen is top-fermented, cask-conditioned, and very effervescent with a slight hint of tangy clove flavor.

A- pours a crystal clear cream soda color before shaking up dregs and adding, became a hazy copper. No head to speak of.

S- big, delicious banana and clove, with a little bready wheat, and faint lemon and pepper.

T/M- comes off a touch watery and over carbonated with some carbonic bite. Other than that the flavors are a pleasant blend of moderate clove, moderate overripe banana and a little bit of fresh dough character from the grains and yeast.

O- a nicely balanced hefeweizen that seems just a touch packing in malt body and overdone in carbonation. A decent enough summer drinker but far from top in its class.

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Golden tan/yellow with a nice 1 inch foamy, white head. Good lacing.

Smell - Lemon and banana. Wheat, yeasty sugars, orange, spices. Floral, bubble gum.

Taste - Grainy, with big wheat presence. Lemon and orange with banana are main fruit flavors. Floral notes, yeasts, and added spices are also tasted. Clove, and a smoked flavor is picked up at the finish.

Mouthfeel - Banana, orange and lemon first coats the tongue. Palate gets a lot more wheat, spices and yeasts. Aftertaste is a little dry, yeasty and floral.

Overall - Not as sweet and refreshing as a lot other hefes' but still good. More wheat up front with some bold spices. Banana is more mellow, as with a lot of hefes are dominated by banana. A good beer I haven't had in ages. Worth a drink for a local beer.
