This is available at Trader Joes. It is a decent hefeweizen and a job well done by Steinhaus Brewing. Wow, actually one of the better deals for a Hefe at $2.29 a bomber. Yes, you heard that right !!!!!!!

3.05/5  rDev -14.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Serving: Bomber into Hacker Pschorr weizen glass
Served: 5 June 2015

Appearance: Pours a darker orange color than many weißbiere, with a soapy white two finger head that diminishes to a sheen of bubbles. Poured this one much harder than other weißbiere to get the head. Huuuge carbonation screaming from the bottom. Hazy, as expected.

Smell: Earthy, sweet caramel malts, a pinch of banana but lots of clove. That cloying caramel is worrisome. This does not smell like a good weizen.

Taste: As suspected, a poor example of the style. Really abrasively malty- grainy, earthen, and weird. Cloying sweetness. Minimal banana and clove notes from the yeast. Really disappointing. Gets better as it warms, but still just barely better than a drain pour.

Mouthfeel: Overcarbonated for the style- this thing is carbonated like champagne, with big, effervescent bubbles that scream from the bottom of the bottle without ceasing. Thin mouthfeel.

Overall: A bad weizen. Not recommended at all. Spend a buck more at a real liquor store and get some Weihenstephaner or Schneider Weiße.

Mission St. Hefeweizen
22 oz. brown glass bottle, coded "01/25/13 18:10" on 4/24/13

Basic hefeweizen. Seems a bit thin. Just a little more malt, and perhaps a better quality malt, could make it a great beer because it has a very nice hefeweizen yeast component with bananas and clove and apples. It's balanced for what it is, but again, it's just a few feet short of the goal line. However, given the price tag I have to give it a nod as a back up or secondary beer. When I'm working around the house, or cooking dinner, or watching football I don't want to drink one of my 'special' beers, and thus something like this fits in great. It's got enough character to keep me happy, and it's cheap! Every beer has a time and place.

I bought a bottle of Mission St Hefeweizen in a grocery store (Trader Joe's). Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a pale yellow color, hazy, with a blast of bubbles rising in the glass and a thin fizzy head.

Smell is sweet, a little like a Bavarian style hefe, with some clove and banana notes.

Taste is a mix of Bavarian and American style wheat ale. There are some hints of banana a clove flavor, but also the citrus flavor from the American style.

Mouthfeel is wet and clean.

Overall a decent hefe. An odd blend of styles. I would have this again
