Cloudy gold color. Delicate, toasty, spicy aromas and flavors of dried banana and plantain, roasted pecans, and delicate brown spices with a silky, soft, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, intriguing, breezy banana nut muffin, wheat wafer, nougat, and sprouts finish. A classic Bavarian styled hefeweizen that hits all of the right notes with elegance.

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.
