Hazy golden yellow color. Roasted aromas of rye banana bread, dark roasted nuts, waxy honeycomb, and cream cheese with a soft, finely carbonated, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, appealing, medium-long wheat wafer, banana custard, and sprouts finish. A great lighter style hefe that is amazingly crushable.

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.
