Minutely hazy gold color. Smoky aromas of barbecue baked beans with a supple, bright, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light body and a smooth, brisk lemon and pear finish. A smoky take on Hefeweizen that will be a fun barbecue brew.

Hefeweizen

Beer Glass Hefeweizen Cloudy Gold.jpg
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.
