  • Pours sightly cloudy (this was warm(er) so it wasn't a chill haze) as the foam rushes up to fill the glass quickly on impact. Pristine white and light it has average retention and thickens a touch. Lacing really doesn't really come into play.

    Aroma is big on the clove aspect of the beer. Banana, light wheat, and even some lemon grass join the parade. The "Hefe" aromas seem to fade quickly leaving just a dry wheat.

    Taste sort of follows. Clove is there with very minor banana flavors while the wheat seems to take over. I bit of spice/bitterness in the finish.

    Light to medium body with a late medium/light carbonation that dries the palate.

    This is one of my favorite styles of beer. I think the beer doesn't quite deliver on the Hefe experience that I am expecting from the yeast, more of the yeast character comes through. Nothing wrong it, just nothing over the top. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • An authentic example of a Bavarian Hefeweizen. “Hefe” means cloudy or yeasty and “weizen” means wheat. This beer is made with mostly wheat and uses a true Hefeweizen yeast that gives it a fruity, banana aroma with just a hint of cloves. The tart finish makes this the perfect summer beer.
