Pours an appealing hazy yellow color with a slight orange hue. Two fingers of fluffy white foam has settled to a thin lace rather quickly. Minimal head retention.

Definitely picking up the typical banana and clove like aromas.

Nice and fruity up front followed up by just the right amount of lemony tartness. Finish is crisp and refreshing.

Thin to medium body with a moderate carbonation level.

A pretty good Heifeweizen overall.

Morey’s Bottom Line: This is definitely a summer seasonal I could see myself picking up if only it were available in Erie. You would figure living in the same state and all, that wouldn’t be too difficult. Unfortunately, Stoudts seasonls are not currently shipped to the area. I’m working to change that. Cheers!

Great name. This beer pours a slightly hazy, pale yellow color, with a small, but very vocal white head. Good, but almost stereo-typical Bavarian Hefe nose, very clear and clean whiffs of banana and clove with hints of muffin and soap. The beer drinks very well, a nice soft wheat texture quickly invades as its ignited by lots of small but bright carbonation, notes of citrus fruit and spice are blasted in by bubbles just before a bready banana flavor takes over, ending in a slightly boozy and immediate finish. Light in body and very exciting this beer is perfect for summer.

On-tap at the Grey Lodge Pub - Philadelphia, PA

The beer appeared to be a slightly opaque straw yellow with a thin white head, foamy and a surprisingly well retained. The beer had a very nice aroma, banana and cloves, just what one would expect from a Hefe. The taste was very good. Followed the nose perfectly. The beer had a lighter feel to it with good carbonation. The beer was very refreshing, crisp and very enjoyable to drink. Overall, this is a good beer and one that I would drink again.

Thanks to Dim for this fantastic extra
Bottle poured into a Wiezen glass produced two fingers worth of white that that doesn't last to long, on top of a hazy almost grapefruit juice colored body.

Great bananas and bubble gum aromas of the yeast cloves and wheat come thru as well

Tastes sweet and wheaty with a light spice bitter finish in your mouth. Very light in the mouthfeel tons of carbonation for your tongue

Good drinkability on this brew great representation of the style

This brew pours a rather clear golden wheat color with little yeast I can see and moderate carbonation compared too many hefes in my experience. The head is lacking compared to the last one of these I drank. To the smell...this is a properly spiced and somewhat fruity Weiss. The balanced smells on even if the banana character is a bit strong.

Glug glug glug

Ok first off... big banana and fruit flavors, underplayed by the spices which are balanced and supportive of the overall flavor. The overall effect is that this is a crisp and tasty wheat beer that's not over or underwhelming at all. I could ask for a bit more, but this beer is fine for the style and serves as a good representation of wheat beers.

On a soccer trip deep into southeast PA I came across this local brewery and bought a case of this brew. Very pleasant on the palate and no aftertaste. Very nice body. A tad sweet. Color and smell is nothing to get excited about. No doubt...if I can find it again..I will buy again.

With a swirl of the bottle to rouse the yeast, Stoudt's Heifer-in-Wheat pours the traditional cloudy golden orange body of a Bavarian hefeweizen. Surprisingly, the head drops fairly readily, and it leaves little lacing behind on the glass.

The aroma is sweet and distinctly wheaty, threaded through with notes of soft clove.

In the mouth it's medium-bodied with a dextrinous edge, and soft and smooth with a very fine-bubbled, seemingly natural carbonation that lightly tickles the tongue.

The flavor is as the nose suggests with a very flavorful and sweet wheaty malt base. The yeast lends soft clove, a hint of vanilla, and some mild smokey and plastic phenols. Hops are barely found, but what's there is grassy and floral. The bitterness is kept to a minimum, and it's definitely on the sweet side.

A good representation of the style. Quite drinkable.
