Hazy light gold color. Bright, fruity, herbal hoppy aromas and flavors of fresh baked banana bread and herb muffins and citrus relish with an even, vibrant, fizzy, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, buoyant lemon peppered nuts, banana creme fraiche, fruit salad, and grass finish. An interesting marriage of hefe and citrusy hops notes.

Weizen Hefe

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.
