Brewed by:
Marshall Brewing Company
Oklahoma, United States

Style: Hefeweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
Klaus is a German-style Hefeweizen named for the patriarch of Brewmaster Eric Marshall’s host family while studying and apprenticing in Germany. A creamy head offers aromas of banana and bubblegum created by the traditional German ale yeast used during fermentation. This yeast is left in the beer to both provide flavor and the cloudiness typical of a German-style wheat beer. Following the aroma, Klaus features a medium body and a light sweetness on the palate to create a refreshing and effervescent session beer.

On tap from a pitcher at the 2012 Tulsa Oktoberfest.

Pours a slightly cloudy mustard color, with a thin off-white head. Aroma is very lightly of grain. Taste begins with a big ripe banana flavor, followed by some rich bread flavors, then some clove, and a bit of phenolics. Mouthfeel is rich. Super low carbonation. Overall an excellent Hefeweizen. Proper real Hefeweizen taste, not just another American pale wheat ale marked as one.

On-tap at Fassler Hall in Tulsa. Pours a cloudy gold apricot color with an inch of creamy head that faded rather quickly. Classic weizen flavors aren't overdone - over-ripened banana, hint of bubblegum, nutmeg, and vanilla. Nice full wheat body that still manages to be light in the mouth. Mild bitterness, light spicy hop flavor. A really solid hefeweizen, a couple 1/2 liter steins went down quickly.
