Hawley Hefeweizen by Wallenpaupack Brewing Co. was reviewed using parameters as defined in the 2015 style guidelines as provided by the Beer Judge Certification Program under category 10A German Wheat Beer after pouring from a one-pint can into a half-liter wheat beer glass.

Banana esters were immediately discernible upon first pour and dominated the aroma profile. Other fruity esters were evident in the background and combined with wisps of wheat to create a pleasant bouquet. True to style, the beer was a cloudy golden color and supported a rocky white head that persisted.

The flavor was dominated by a host of esters and phenols, which could only emanate from a traditional German yeast strain. In addition to the above mentioned banana notes, a distinct clove character was present and balanced well with the malted wheat. The absence of hop flavor and bitterness allows the subtleties of this effort to represent itself in fine fashion.

Rich flavors, traditional alcohol levels and medium-to-light body make this an easy-drinking example of the style.

This beer was so excellent and on point with all the Hefeweizen beers that I have tasted over the years.. I bought a case of this beer they only offer cans "I hate cans" and the taste was way off from the on tap beer. It was like two different beers and I would never waste my money on this product again unless it was in a pub on tap.
