Amber color. Aromas and flavors of banana soufflé, pressed flowers, apricot, and honeycomb with a satiny, vibrant, fruity light-to-medium body and a warming, distinctive, medium-long finish displaying accents of sweet zucchini bread with butter, cashew caraway, coriander, and clove finish. A beautiful, nuanced hefeweizen with a celebratory quality; cheers!

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.
