In the same family as a popular honey beer sold at bars and pubs across the U.S., our light-bodied Honey Weizen lends the same, ever-so-slightly sweet crispness that's drinkable any time of year.

4.8 / 5.057 ReviewsWith a little shake, this is a really mildtasty brew.My experience with brewing HW resulted in a good tasting brew; mild but with a nice alcohol kick. I did use a secondary fermenter for a total of three weeks (two in the carboy). Upon opening my first bottle it did not draw a good head, but a little shake of the second bottle before uncapping resulted in a really good head and a better taste than the first bottle. There was no sediment to deal with.November 8, 2009great packageI brewed this up for a Land Cruiser four wheeling trip and it did not disappoint. I kegged it in a 5 gal soda keg and it was waiting for us once we got off the trail....good taste and it went down smoooooth. If it was only a little bit cheaper on the wallet. I ended up using my standby, the White Labs Hefe yeast....November 19, 2009A definite crowd pleaserI brewed a batch of this up for a BBQ during the summer and it was all gone in a couple of hours. The majority of people who drank this brew only drink "beer" from St. Louis......not anymore. Great selection for summer and spring. Also great for those who are really picky about what kind of beer they drink. I added the honey at the 30 minute mark and will definitely brew again.February 17, 2010SuperbThis is a great beer, one of my favorites and always well received by guests. It's easy to make and appeals to everyone. It's slightly sweet and has a discernible alcohol presence without it being overpowering. An easy beer to drink.February 21, 2010Holy HefeweizenHefeweizens are by far my favorite style of beer and this is my new favorite. My wife loves it and the only thing I can get her to drink is Miller. The kitchen was full of banana when we bottled it. This one will always be in stock at my house.March 9, 2010Great HefeThis beer really turned out great. It has a high alcohol content @ 7% but is very smooth and easy to drink. I will definitely brew again and again.April 6, 2010Amazing!I added an extra 1.5 pounds of honey at the last 10 minutes of the boil. It came out to 9.1% ABV. This beer has a kick and is tasty to boot. Lots of honey flavor. Will definitely be ordering this one again.May 18, 2010A nice sweet wheat beer with a KICK.I brewed this beer the last week of Feb. I always spring for the Activator yeast, because I like to see the bag swell... I let it ferment in the primary for ten days then bulk conditioned in the secondary for two full months. Usually I wouldn't be able to wait that long, but luckily I had a good bit of homebrewed stock on hand at the time :) . _x000D__x000D_I bottled this beer into 48 12oz'ers and after two weeks of carbonating I had some friends come over to try it out..._x000D__x000D_This beer is smooth and delicious. It holds a strong thick head that collects on the glass. Letting it condition in the secondary for as long as I did produces a nice cloudy wheat beer appearance without the floaters that you sometimes get from not letting it settle all the way out. It was a little darker than expected, ending up a nice golden brown color when held up to the light. The taste is excellent, sweet but not too sweet. The hops aroma comes through on the nose and you can taste a little bitterness on the finish. _x000D__x000D_I recommend this beer for someone who likes a sweet wheat beer. I nicknamed her, Sweet Honey Wheat.June 8, 2010First Brew-Turned out GreatThis was the first kit I ever brewed. I was a little worried by the strong banana smell I noticed when taking hydrometer readings but after about 1-2 months I really don't notice it. I am hooked on home brewing when my first batch turned out like this!August 20, 2010outstandingperfect all the way around. I've done hundreds of home brews, and this was a very popular one. The guys in my army unit were knocking on my door at 3am trying to get more._x000D_I add more honey than the recipe. but i love this one.September 13, 2010
