[12.5 deg. Plato 80% AA 20 IBU] [ABV ~5.0%]

"American-style Hefe with 60% wheat malt. Unmalted Pendleton wheat gives this brew a fresh bread-like flavor. We will even serve it with a lemon or grapefruit if you ask us to. Clean and crisp, our Hefe features a modest amount of Sterling hops."

Growler taken to BBQ, $11. Named after music festival in nearby Helix, Oregon. The "Hefeweizen" and "American Pale Wheat Ale" are both incorrect. Though it started off as a Hefeweizen, under new brewer this should now be classified as American Dark Wheat Ale.

Medium brown body a bit hazy, two fingers light tan head, dissipation a bit on the slow side, good lacking. Bready and caramel malt notes dominate the nose, grassy hops. Taste is a bit biscuity, not a lot of caramel flavor, slight bitterness from hops on back end. Mouthfeel a bit on the light side of medium, decent effervescence. An interesting beer, though lacking in the complexity of Barley Brown's Shredder's Wheat, IMO the benchmark for the style.

Ordered it because it was the "local wheat beer" & it was okay. Very grainy and smooth, it really had a whole aroma, like fresh bread. The flavor wasn't as rich as other craft beers, but I was still glad I ordered it.
