Bright yellow color. Savory, umami aromas and flavors of tapioca and banana pudding, toasted banana nut and pretzel breads, and water chestnut and bamboo shoot with a satiny, bright, effervescent, fruity medium body and a seamless, captivating, long finish that presents notes of delicate spiced nuts and minerals finish. A delicious and elegantly styled hefeweizen that is a pleasure to drink.

Hefeweizen

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.
