Cloudy light gold color. Aromas and flavors of stewed cabbage and greens, overripe plantains and mangos, and apple vinegar with a supple, soft, petillant, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a sparse banana cream pie tin and mineral water finish. A vegetal brew.

Weizen Hefe

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.
