Cloudy light gold color. Aromas and flavors of banana and vegetable chips, canned cream corn, waxy candy wrapper, and meringue with a lean, vibrant, dryish light-to-medium body and a fleeting finish with notes of wax paper, nutskin, and grass finish. A tired hefe.

Hefeweizen

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.
