Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Bottle shared by Lee at the Brick Store.

Pours clear yellow with a small soapy white head that dissipates almost immediately and leaves no lacing.

The aroma is heavy on the tart lemons with a subtle underlying sweet banana and bubble gum sweetness. Sweet malt and yeast make up the rest. Not much spiciness that I could tell.

The taste also starts with a tart lemon zing which gives way to a very modest hefe base with some ripe bananas and cotton candy. The finish is very dry and slightly tart.

The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and drier and a bit more tart than most hefes.

This is a solid beer but not one my favorite hefes. It's a little more tart than I'd prefer with a bit more sweetness. Still, not bad.

A decent hefe.

Nose is citrus, a bit lemony.

First sip is tart, highly carbonated, and there's a hint of banana and clove there, but not as much as I'd like.
Solid hefe though... one of the best American offerings...

It's official.. the hop project beers remain my favorites from this brewery... and I'm not even really a hophead.

Worth trying, and the price is right, but I won't revisit it too much with the competition in this style that I have access too. For 3 bux more I coulda bought a 6 of Hacker-Pschorr, and probably should of.

This one is alright on spice... not enough clove, not enough viscosity, not enough of anything really(except for car and its a bit overdone). Well made, but not world class or original.

Let's face it... the Americans haven't figured this one out yet... GRANTED THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST ATTEMPTS I've tasted... Yazoo is something that I can get within a week of it's bottling - so I'm a little biased here... and this is a very drinkable offering... not nearly as complex or to the unfiltered quality standards of say Schneider-Weiss or other German offerings of that caliber... but hey... at least we improved upon the stout... best american Hefe imo... or for what I've had which is only about 20-25 different offerings... worth a try for sure.

“No naked ladies” were involved making this, per the dated label notched 4th week of July. Darn.

Champaign pour of lemon yellow, nice pop on top of white head and lace. Tons of yeasties on the bottom really funk it up as I swirl. Musty aroma of Bavarian wheat, not much but a tiny smack of banana and clove amongst the lemongrass backbone – too restrained for this to be a top notch Hefe.

Well developed body and tart finish. Close to being a 4 brew, needs another step up the ladder.

Many thanks to unclejedi for the bottle sent as part of CEO/Old Fart BIF.
