After shopping for beer so long, it actually came as a surprise to me that Hofbrau was available in the US. Should have been obvious, I guess, but after being so close to the brewery a few years ago, I should have been looking for it here.
Right off the bat, looking at the bottle, this baby was obviously a little on the cloudy side. Freshly opened, it smelled of a wheaty, yeasty bread, with a nice malty aftersmell. Smelled delightful... I was worried it wasn't going to be very fresh-tasting.
After drinking so many different Hefe's this summer, it was a big surprise to hop right into this one. Just an awesome brew...very crisp and tasty. Lots of wheat present, with a sweetish malt backbone, and a little bit of what I would guess is the yeast. Didn't get much on the fruits side, except the vague banana presence usually in a good hefe.
Really enjoyed this. A highly drinkable, very well-made brew. There are hofbrau beer gardens in the US now, at least one in Panama City Beach. Hopefully will be able to stop by and try there entire selection on tap!

This is my first review ever, so bear with me.
This is is a summery beer (if you will) in that it is refreshing, tasty, and actually a decent thirst quencher. It is a bit sweet and thus differentiates itself from many of Hofbrau's other offerings.
Hefe Weizen is not for the dunkel crowd or the stout crowd unless members of those crowds simply love all types of excellent beer. You may convert your friend who today drinks Bud Light Lime but only if he doesn't have a vagina.
This is a white beer and thus requires a glass or some clever bottle-rolling or both. Drinking it with neither will result in some nasty dregs in the bottom of the bottle and, thus, in your stomach. Do not do this.
I enjoyed this beverage immensely. I'm enjoying another one right now.

looks real nice in the glass with a two finger head cloudy pale golden color and a light sticky lace as you drink.
smells of fresh wheat malt, hint of lemon and yeast just waiting to be tasted.
and what a great taste, wheat malt, yeast, banana, with hints of spice and clove and big tangy finish and a tight crisp carbonation and medium body.
love hefe weizen beer and this one is right at the top.

I had this at the Hofbrauhous in Munich Germany, it was delicious. My buddy, and I ate lunch and put down a couple steins, during Oktoberfest 2009.
I am a Wheat beer fan, so I loved the taste. It was quite strong, but incredibly smooth and easy to drink. It was probably served a bit below room temperature, but warmed before I could finish and still had a great taste to it. Felt like it had a hint of banana, orange, and some other fruits, but all around spectacular.
