Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

On draught at the brewpub, served in a gold-rimmed Weizen glass. Hazy dark amber/golden color with a thick and fluffy off-white head. Thin and sticky lacing. Aroma of yeast and bananas. Medium-bodied and slick with flavors of wheat, banana and yeast. The finish is clean but kind of watery, with wheat and a bit of spice aftertaste. Above average overall, and honestly better than I was expecting.

Had this at Reagan National Airport. No fruit in glass.

A - Pours a cloudy golden color, one finger white head receded to a thin layer on top. Minimal lacing.

S - Citrus, slight banana and even slighter clove.

T - Good wheaty taste, slight banana and clove and a little orange. Would give it a 3.75 in this category if I could.

M - Creamy and smooth, good carbonation.

O - I have quite frequently been disappointed by their beer but this is one of the better GB offerings, which is good because I like their food. Could and would drink multiples. Would give it a 3.75 in this category if I could.

Enjoyed on-tap at the Washington DC brewpub.Cloudy grapefuit with a bit of white head, that leaves lace residue. Wheat aroma. Appropriate carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel, a bit above average. There is sourness that is well contained. Decent beer, hits the highlights.
