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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: The beer is slightly hazy light yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured into a weizen glass with a finger high head that died down, consistently leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bananas and cloves are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has some flavors of wheat from the underlying malts.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy drink and refreshing. It is an excellent American representation of a German hefeweizen and tastes very similar to the weisse beers found in Southern Bavaria.
