Hazy light gold color. Aromas and flavors of fruitcake, banana-raisin muffin, and caraway rye bread with a supple, crisp, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an effortless, interesting, medium-long melon and custard finish. A very spicy, tasty and easy drinking hefe.

Weizen Hefe
Beer Glass Hefeweizen Cloudy Gold.jpg
Serve in a Weissbier Glass
Weizen hefes are pale straw to deep golden in color and range from 4-6% in alcohol. These beers are refreshing and highly carbonated with banana and spicy clove-like flavors derived from the yeast strains used in the brewing process. Hop flavors play a very insignificant role in the flavor profile. This is a top-fermenting, unflitered beer style that originated from southern Germany, particularly Bavaria, and is brewed with at least 50% wheat in the mash. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Paulaner Hefe-Weizen, Hacker-Pschorr Weisse and New Glarus Dancing Man Wheat.
