I got hold of Heff-Weisen from Burgerbrau Bad Reichenhall as part of a German wheat beer selection from Wowcher. I think it worked out about £1.25 per a beer, and as wheat beers are among my favourite styles I couldn't turn that down. I can't really tell you a great deal about the brewery except that they are based in Germany and when it comes to wheat beers you really want the Germans involved in the brewing. The beer comes in a 500ml bottle featuring a very happy, very Bavarian looking gentleman out in the countryside on a nice summers day. There's nothing overly exciting about the bottle if I'm honest, although the 5.2% alcohol content isn't to be sniffed at. I'm not really sure where you'd be able to get this beer other than in random deliveries and in Germany but lets see if it would be worth the trip.
Unser Burgerbrau Hefe-Weisen pours gorgeously. There's just something about the look of a wheat beer I love. The body is a cloudy, golden colour, while the head is absolutely luxurious and as creamy as you could wish for. Honestly you could put a flake in there. The aroma is full of wheaty goodness mixed with yeast and some banana. I have to say that so far this is everything a Bavarian wheat beer should be and I'm really looking forward to tasting it. The texture is also spot on. It's just creamy enough to make it interesting while still feeling refreshing.
The taste very much matches the aroma, there's all the usual wheat beer flavours, plus a splash of banana and some subtle spices. I know I've said it before, and I'll say it again, Germans just know how to make wheat beers, they are absolutely their thing. I'm going to give Under Burgerbrau Hefe-Weisen a very impressive 8 out of 10. It really is a very good wheat beer, I just don't think it's unique enough to warrant a higher score sadly.
