Minutely hazy light gold color. Funky aromas and flavors of roasted corn and yams, sourdough egg sandwich, banana poppyseed muffin, and waxy fallen apple with a supple, soft, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity light body and an effortless, brisk finish displaying notes of wheat wafer, overripe jicama and plantain, watercress, and peppered nutskin finish. A light and savory hefeweizen for the table.

Hefeweizen

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.
