A unfiltered wheat beer orginating in Germanies barvarian region, while not completly exclusive to that area. The brew tends have a honey or golden hue and is quite clodey due to the large amount of yeast and sediment left in the beer.

One typically pours 90% of the beer into a large glass and then swirls the remainder of the liquid to removed the yeast caked on the bottom rim of the bottle. This is yeast mixture is then poured into the glass with the rest of the beer.
Flavor is extremely light, smooth and pleasant, the taste has been described as mild and sweet, with hints of banana and or clove
Typically German hefeweizens are the only way to go, thought California's Sierra Nevada -Keller Weis is right up there

Great German examples include:

The beer of Gods!! It is brewed by the Widmer Brothers. Its a golden unfiltered wheat beer that is truly cloudy and clearly superb. Even though it is only 4.7% alcohol it is still a great beer. Not for poor people.
I drink hefeweizen only when my dad buys it! It is good but expensive for my budget.

Seth wants to seem tough in front of the cute german waitress, so he asks for “funf Hefeweizens“.
