This beer is a great exponent of the hefeweizen style. Pours golden, hazy with a very thick white foam head. Smells right, banana, cloves, spices, bread, wheat. Taste is complex with a dominant banana note, also bread and yeast. Excellent beer.

From Hipercor. In Bavaria glass. Watching Sons of Anarchy 5x02-03. The best classic hefe Ive taken so far. Smooth texture, great nose and taste, good looking foam.

After shopping for beer so long, it actually came as a surprise to me that Hofbrau was available in the US. Should have been obvious, I guess, but after being so close to the brewery a few years ago, I should have been looking for it here.

Right off the bat, looking at the bottle, this baby was obviously a little on the cloudy side. Freshly opened, it smelled of a wheaty, yeasty bread, with a nice malty aftersmell. Smelled delightful... I was worried it wasn't going to be very fresh-tasting.

After drinking so many different Hefe's this summer, it was a big surprise to hop right into this one. Just an awesome brew...very crisp and tasty. Lots of wheat present, with a sweetish malt backbone, and a little bit of what I would guess is the yeast. Didn't get much on the fruits side, except the vague banana presence usually in a good hefe.

Really enjoyed this. A highly drinkable, very well-made brew. There are hofbrau beer gardens in the US now, at least one in Panama City Beach. Hopefully will be able to stop by and try there entire selection on tap!
