Beer added by: Jason on 05-29-2013

Brewmaster Phil Markowski has taken a “bahn” less traveled to create our version of the classic Bavarian wheat brew –perfect for the warming temperatures. Beautifully cloudy with a generous head of foam, a wonderful fruit aroma and a dry finish, our Hefeweizen is a refreshing version of the original; with just a little bit more of everything.

One of the best hefeweizens I've had in quite some time. I'm stoked that Two Roads has a team of German engineers working for them, because it shows in beers like this one.

I think this easily hangs with some of the best true German hefeweizens. I was surprised. I'll definately buy this again. Although I think you get a better deal when buying Sierra Nevada Keller Weis. You get more for your money.

My favorite regular offering from Two Roads, this German-style Hefe is loaded with bubble gum, banana, and clove. The mouthfeel is creamy and silky, with a beautiful bready malt backbone that complements the yeast perfectly. One of the best American Hefes on the market.

Two finger fluffy white head. Golden body with a light haze. Coriander and banana like aroma. Sweet and bread like taste. Coriander and banana also in the taste. Light bitterness. Refreshing and has a mild tart finish. Thinner mouth feel compared to the traditional way for this style. I'd be happy to have this one again and again.

A - Exactly what I expect from a Hefe. Hazy straw body, with a huge white head. Fades quickly, leaves little lacing.

S - Pepper, lemon zest, fresh grains.

T - Banana, nice light malt sweetness,

M - Medium body, high carb. A little heavy for a Hefe, but still refreshing. Carb level helps move it across the palate.

O - Another excellent offering from Two Roads. I've enjoyed every offering from them. This didn't disappoint. If looking for a Hefe with some heft then this is the one I'd go to.

Pour from the can is a slightly hazy golden straw yellow. 2 fingers of soft white head, which fade fairly quickly.

Nose is pretty soft, with hints of bready yeast, banana, and orange/lemon.

Taste is rather nice. Pretty heavy yeast and bread notes, with a solid banana backbone. The citrus kinda gets lost. Finishes with a big yeasty component again.

Mouth feel is medium light. Just about right.

I really enjoyed this. No epic Hefe by any means, but a really nice, solid drinkable Hefe, and in a can, from a local brewery no less. Flavors could be bigger, sure, but really solid beer.

16oz tallboy can with no freshness date.

Look: Cloudy pale yellow, great looking lacing on the glass

Smell: Banana taffy, powdered clove, chalky yeast, apple skin, bready, faint bandaid

Taste: Big crispness, very smooth, clove, plantains, spice, banana pith, doughy malt, mild bubblegum, light hopping, grainy finish, ends nearly all the way dry

Hits all of the bells and whistles and then some, perhaps not as mellow as some but none of its attributes are more than any other. Seek it out if you are into wheat beers.

Had this at the Valley Brew Fest. Served in a sampler size glassware provided by the festival. The beer had a pale, murky yellow appearance along with a thin white head and minimal lacing on the sides. Really dug the mixture of citrus aromas alongside hints of bananas, bread, and cloves. Its a generally sweet beer with a taste of lemons mixed into a wheaty drink and then comes with a sour aftertaste. Good carbonation; really makes the beer easy to drink and made it light. Overall, a really nice drink from Two Roads.

Pours a hazy yellow with a white head that laces the glass a bit before fizzing away. The smell is full of sweet scents like toasted grain, and fruit like banana. The taste was very refreshing with sweet banana through-out, but also spices like mint, and other fruits and almost a nutty finish. Really enjoyed this one.

Served in a non in at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.

Appearance: A two finger head was poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a hazy pale orange yellow with a little vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Awesome lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Light banana and clove yeast aromas, bready wheat, vanilla, and a little sweetness.

Taste: Same as above. Nice yeast flavors and wheat and specialty malts to back it up.

Mouthfeel: Chewy, refreshing, light to medium bodied, a little dry, and medium to high carbonation.

Overall: Good American take on a traditional German style. I fig it.

Drawn from a tap in a local take-out burger joint. Nice and cloudy and light on the head. Good aroma. Goes down good but a small bitterness stays. All in all a keeper on my list.

Tall boy 16 oz. can, w/o freshness or canning date info.(there is something printed on the bottom of the can, but it is unintelligible)

Pours heavily hazed, lighter tangerine with a lemony hue. Fluffy and lasting one inch cap. Leaves ample and staying ringed strands of lace.

Bananas, wheat malts and light sugar on the nose.

On the palate its more of the same, mostly mild notes of bananas and sweet malts.

Decent Hefe and in a can to boot....worth a try

A-Not very hazy surprisingly. This was lined up in a flight next to a Saison and a Pils and it was difficult to tell the difference between them just by appearance. Light head. Modest lacing.

S-Bananas really stand out. Wheaty banana bread and light periphery spice. Bright and clean.

T-Again, banana jumps onto my palate. Fresh, ripe bananas. Wheatiness and cloves, and yeasty bubblegum.

M-Bubbly, light and pretty refreshing.

O/D-I enjoyed this Hefeweizen. It was easy going and directly to the point. Never going to 'wow' you with intricacy but if you enjoy Hefeweizens, this one shouldn't rock the boat.

Pours a cloudy honey straw color with a big puffy pure white head that slowly settled into a fluffy cap. Not much lacing.

The aroma is both tart, fruity and spicy. There are some green apple and lemon notes that provide the tartness. Banana, bubble gum, and clove provide the fruit and spice. Traditional Bavarian aroma but more on the tart side.

The taste is more yeast driven. Big ripe banana flavor with subtle notes of clove and bubble gum. Not much tartness in the flavor, perhaps a slight lemon twang. Very creamy flavor.

Moderate to full feel. Creamy feel but does have some prickly carbonation to breakup the body. Sweet on the palate.

The beer is like liquid banana bread. Very banana forward hefe. Could use a touch of clove, pepper or more tartness to contrast the banana but it is quite enjoyable.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a hazy dark straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured light esters and a soft grassy hop.

The taste offered somewhat muted esters with a thin chewy malt and touch if lemon zest.

The mouthfeel was toward theft thinner side of the style.

Overall a tasty light bodied hefeweizen.

Cloudy tawny colour with a fluffy, bright white head that stood and inch and a half above the beer. Good head retention with chunky lacing. Banana and clove aroma, maltiness, a bit of lemon and hint of bubblegum. Mild bitterness with some fruity, citrus sweetness. More banana and clove character, citrus in the finish. Full bodied, moderate carbonation, off dry. Very easy drinking, nice balance of flavours.

A big thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of wheat, lemons. Taste is highly refreshing. Banana, lemon, some spice, glass is getting empty quickly. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid session beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Arrives with a hazy goldenstraw color; not nearly enough head for the style and very little lacing

Smell: Wheat bread, banana, apple and clove

Taste: Just a hint of wheat bread and then the fruits dominate, with apple and banana paired together; lots of clove arrive in the mid-palate with peppery spice bringing up the rear

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation; lacks that creamy mouthfeel I like in a hefe

Overall: I like the few tweaks this brew brings to the style, but I would prefer more banana and a creamier mouthfeel in a nod to the traditional aspects

16 oz tallboy can into a pint glass. No discernible date stamp. Pours a hazy amber yellow body with a massive fluffy head. Some decent lacing and retention but looks to be a bit on the thin side. Aroma is banana, bubble gum, and biscuits with faint spices. Taste is the same but with more spice creeping in on the finish to balance out the fruit. Mouth feel is full and creamy. Not a particularly exciting hefe, but it's very agreeable and drinkable. The fact that it's in tallboy cans only adds to its poundability. A hefe worth scrutinizing and putting on the pedestal next to the finer German examples? No. A solid beach beer? Hell yeah.

A- Tallboy can to a pint glass for the review with a hazy golden body. A pillow of white creamy, foam forms to about one finger. Head retention is good. A thin blanket stays atop while lacing is spotty with a few small sheets.

S- Clove phenols, citrus rind fruit and banana esters are strong off the top with a light sweetness peaking through the back end. Pear, apple, grainy wheat crust and bread hints. Fades for me with time.

T- Banana and clove are still strong but the apple, pear fruitiness comes into play more here bringing a fruit sugar sweetness and flavor with it. Lemon rind, oranges, grainy, wheat, pepper, spiciness, bread and light hop hints as well.

MF- Overall body is light-medium with a creamy, foaminess that fills up the palate with any agitation. Carbonation at a moderate level and the finish is somewhat dry.

Nice body and texture with a solid Hefe flavor that delivers a good amount of fruits and spice. Consumed rather quickly so that says something about my enjoyment of it and it's refreshing quality.

1 Pint Can. No Freshness date.

A: Pours hazy golden yellow. Medium carbonation. Large white head, turns small
within a minute. Nice color.

S: Wheat, banana, lemon, and spices. has a sharp distinct aroma.

T/M: Spices, banana, and wheat come in first. Yeast is present throughout. Citrus
is harder to detect. Little hop presence overall. Light bodied and smooth, with a
sweet/spicy taste.

O: True to the style. Almost too true. Needs it's own special something to make it
stand out. The beer is still very drinkable and has enough taste to keep me happy.

On tap at Cask Republic in Stamford, CT. Served in a tulip stout glass.

Appearance: Cloudy/translucent golden yellow with an initial 1/4" thick head. Foam pretty persistent while drinking the entire beer, but it died down a bit. Plenty of lacing all over the glass.

Smell: Clean, grain, a bit of banana.

Taste: Quite a bit sweet up front, then a strong hit of banana with a hint of bubblegum. Very light bitter finish. The banana tapered back a bit as the beer warmed up with the wheat coming out a bit more.

Mouthfeel: Prickly carbonation and quite chewy.

Overall / Drinkability: Not bad for a Hefeweizen, and hit the style pretty well, but not something I could drink a lot of. A 12oz pour was enough. Went well with lunch (salad with warm duck confit shredded on top).

Had on tap at the brewery

Appearance: 1/4 inch frothy head, moderate carbonation, bright yellow in color, hazy

Smell: banana and clove

Taste: wheat, clove, orange, and banana

Mouthfeel: sweet start with a slightly bitter middle and a sweeter end, medium carbonation and bodied

Overall: Two Roads has wowed me so far by putting an extra and surprising element into their beers. This I feel is very solid, true to style, but does not have that wow factor that their other beers have had. I like it, but there are other hefs that I like more.

Poured from a 16oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a cloudy yellow color, with a thin white head that fades very quickly and leaves a very thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains bananas, wheat, light caramelized malts, some citrus and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat and thin malt character. Then some mild sweetness comes in from flavors of bananas, citrus and caramel. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: A little smooth but not very crisp and kind of watery, light-to-medium body, medium-to-high carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style. It’s a decent beer but there are a lot of other choices in the style that I would pick first.

Delicious and refreshing, but not exceptional. Certainly not a "bad" beer by any stretch of the imagination, but there's nothing that grabs me and says "wow" about it either.
