Old gold color. Aromas of cucumber, tinned asparagus, water chestnuts, and cream of wheat with a supple, soft, spritzy, dry-yet-fruity thin body and a graceful, brisk lemon spritzed green smoothie, ripe pear, parsnip, green plantain, and underripe starfruit finish. A light and crushable Hefeweizen with a funky, bitter backbone.

Hefeweizen

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.
