HefeweizenHefeweizen
Notes: Hundreds of years ago in Germany, wheat beers were considered 'breakfast' or 'after church' beers, a testament to their light refreshing flavor and a tradition of drinking them on weekend occasions. We invite you to enjoy our Hefeweizen (hay-fa-VEIT-sen) any day of the week.

Pleasant head when provided, draft at DTW airport. Copper colored hazy liquid where the head dissipated after another 2 min. Bland if musty taste and smell.

Pretty nice pour straight from the brewery. Slight white head. Very hazy body but the scents were a bit mustardy. Taste is nothing like the scent, which is odd. Very nice and smooth with a lot of clove and banana. Very pleasant. Easy to drink and light, though not watery. Another good offering by GB.

For me, it tasted like drinking liquid bananas. Not what I was expecting, but still very drinkable.

Look - Hazy golden orange with one finger of creamy white head.
Smell - bananas, yeast and the lemon that was thrown in my glass
Taste - somewhere between a weihenstephaner and a blue moon. A little over-carbonated for the style imo.
Feel - almost champagne-like with the carbonation
Overall- an enjoyable refreshing beer but not top class in the style

Hazy gold with two fingers of white head.
Smell is pungent wheat yeast herbal hops.
Taste is tangy wheat yeast bubblegum banana some herbal hops.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation. The finish is lightly dry and balanced.
Overall a tasty hefe.

Picked up a growler 2-26-2017 courtesy of my buddy Mr. Doyle from his Black Friday growler book. Cost was a $2 tip to the bartender for the fill.
Beer poured orange with a nice white head initially that dissipated quickly.

Nose is classic German hefe yeast strain, bananas and cloves forward.

Taste follows the nose, banana and cloves blend nicely with the wheat malt base. Noble hops balance the malt sweetness nicely.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and pretty smooth.

Overall this is a good representation of the style. glad i finally got around to having this!

Had it while in New Orleans on tap into a 0.25l glass. Very nice head and good lacing. Wonderful banana and clove smell and taste. I might have rated it a bit higher but had a Live Oak Hefe later that day when back in Texas. Puts it perspective!

Split a draft with my cousin Michelle's husband Rob during the 2017 US Figure Skating championships in Kansas City, Missouri. It was solid and a pleasant surprise for a hefe, since I was trying beers from the area. Recommend!
