The German Hefeweizen Blind Taste Challenge


Jay and I are both huge fans of the authentic German hefeweizen beer style (not the American versions that tend to be overly lemony or orangey). We've always argued which is the best and worst and to put it to the test I came up with this unscientific experiment of tasting six German hefeweizens blind to see which we really did like the best not knowing which was which.

I was pleased with my pick as the best of the bunch, as was Jay with his pick. Although I sucked at correctly identifying which beer was which (although that wasn't REALLY the intent of the experiment anyway).

All in all this was a fun video to make and an interesting and educational experiment. I highly encourage all the other beer reviewers out there to try it themselves and post a video response to this!
