Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: clvand0 on 11-01-2004

An authentic example of a Bavarian Hefeweizen. “Hefe” means cloudy or yeasty and “weizen” means wheat. This beer is made with mostly wheat and uses a true Hefeweizen yeast that gives it a fruity, banana aroma with just a hint of cloves. The tart finish makes this the perfect summer beer.

The beer pours like the typical hefeeweizen. Cloudy, hazy and grainy with a thin white head and spotty lace. The smell is faint and grainy with a back draft of banana, cloves and pepper. The taste is a bit thin and watery up front, but perfectly balanced between the banana and cloves. hints of black pepper and a tart hop bite in the background. A bit thin and watery, but a creamy swallow. Simple, refreshing, and easy to drink.

12 oz into nonic

A: Super cloudy, 1.5 inch of fluffy white foam, yellow/orange hue with very present carbonation

S: big time banana, clove, fresh bready yeast aroma

T: banana bread, wow a lot of banana, slight bubblegum, strong yeast, clove in the finish, a bit of a sour quality

M: Very bright and there is a strong bite about 1/2 way through the sip, feels a bit thin at the end

O: very nice, especially if you like the banana thing. I wish the mouthfeel had a bit more substance across the full sip

16 ounce pint - Flying Saucer Draught Emporium in Nashville, Tennessee.

Appearance: Clouded, gold body with a modestly sized, white head.

Smell: Freshly opened sack of Big League Chew, this beer is heavily scented of bubblegum. Oh, sure, you can drag out some notes of wheat, lemon, and clove tea, but it's predominately bubblegum.

Taste: A lightly sweet taste of that malted wheat, a little nibble of french bread, then, some lemon. Fresh clove hits. As with the aroma, the bubblegum character totally overrides the other flavors. Nil bitterness. Yep, it's pretty much bubblegum here, though there is a rebound of clove at the finish.

Mouthfeel: Falls just barely shy of being medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Hubba Bubba Hefe.
