Post up your favorite Hefe's. I'm looking to try more, but want to see what everyone else likes or recommends.

In the past I've enjoyed:

New Glarus Crack'd Wheat
Franziskaner
Sierra Nevada Kellerweis

Paulaner Hefe-Weissbier
Franziskaner ( Had this in Austria and loved it)
Goose Island 312 is not bad.

Ayinger is my favorite so far followed by Weihenstephaner.


I used to not enjoy wheat beers but lately I am really liking them

I typically go with Paulaner or Weihenstephaner for that authentic German hefe :tu, but one of the best American hefe's I've had on tap was some years ago at Pyramid Brewing out in Seattle. I don't think it's their current production hefe (Haywire,) it may have been an Imperial hefeweizen. All I remember was that it was :dr

Haven't ever had a bad heffeweissen, but plenty of bad American beer. Coincidence?

I wish Kristallweissen was as available as the heffeweissen. It's good stuff as well.

I've been on a Hefe kick lately and enjoying the following;
Sierra Nevada Kellerweis
Paulaner Hefe-Weissbier
Widmer
Pyramid
and when we visit my daughter in Oak Harbor I always stop in to Flyers for some Heat Seeker Hefe (that stuff is da bomb!:dr).

I'm starting to drink the blood orange hefe I brewed recently and have to say, it's pretty good!

Picked this up yesterday

The Virginia state seal is looking kinda butch and I'm not really sure what corn (or that phallus) has to do with anything :r but the side label reads:

Sic Semper Fermentue Terribilis: "Death to Bad Beer Always." The Virginia Hefeweizen is made with 100% German Weihenstephan Weizen yeast. Like the early German immigrants to central Virginia, we use American wheat to produce an authentic, unfiltered Hefeweizen beer. Enjoy banana ester production, phenols and clovelike characteristics. This is the best Hefe you've ever tried.

The last line is more like a jedi mind trick, because it wasn't the best I've ever tried. However, it was pretty good--despite the cheesy label--and was certainly yeasty with plenty of banana & clove. May have been a bit overhopped because it was slightly more bitter than I expected for the style. Not bad overall, though, and since it's a local brew, quite reasonably priced ($4/22oz.)

Hofbrau Haus in Vegas has the real stuff, on tap! All good, including the weizen.

Franziskaner
Paulaner
& the list of German Hefe's

If I want a hefe there's no reason to even order a microbrew. We have an awesome pizza pub that has an unbelieveable selection of imports and micros, so the options are endless, but if it's a hefe is the real deal.

I'm with Ken, I've had good domestic/micro Kolsch, but the micro hefe's never stack up it seems...and it is just as easy to find a world class German bottle. Not trying to be a hater, but that is just how it has played out for me so far.

What's disturbing is the surviving champion is supposed to be a chick. And that's the worst drawn sword I've ever seen.

One I haven't seen mentioned that I enjoyed is Hacker Pschorr. I also enjoy Ayinger, Paulaner, and Franziskaner (especially the Dunkel).

Lots of great hefewiezens listed. A lot of my favorites. A couple local breweries make some really great ones but aren't available for distribution. Browns brewing company and C.H. Evens brewing company. C.H. Evans actually won a gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival.

Love Sierra Nevada Keller Wies. Love Wienhenstephaner. Love Franziskaner. Love Brooklynn Wiesse.
