Notes/Commercial Description:
Hefe is the German word for yeast and weizen is wheat, making this beer style fairly self-explanatory. The classic banana and clove-like flavors are derived from a specific Bavarian yeast. Because the beer is unfiltered, these dynamic yeasty flavors come through strongly. There is merely a hint of hop flavor added so as not to compete with the yeast notes. Some drinkers (not all) enjoy a squeeze of lemon.

Excited to see this on tonight at PreFunk... Pours with a long lasting white head atop a hazed yellow/tannish brew... Very well done Continental Hefe, phenol/ester mix is near perfect with a good punch of clove and banana esters bringing up the rear and carried by a hefty wheaty note... body is pretty thick even for an American take on the style... This should be enjoyed in a large, tall hefe glass.... Fantastic Hefe.

This weis has a huge banana aroma and a good color. The predominant flavor is that of tangy banana. Very smooth beer that is one of the tastiest in the west. I thought this was a very flavorful and worthwhile brew
