Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Bierman9 on 08-10-2011

Hog Happy Hefeweizen is a full-flavored, traditional German-style wheat beer that tastes like it comes straight from Munich, but is made with wheat from local farms. The yeast used during fermentation gives this straw-colored beer the sweet flavor and aromas of banana & clove.

You might wonder what’s behind the ‘Hog Happy’ name. Well, it is pretty simple. The grain used in our brewing process gets passed on to local farmers and their livestock (including the pigs). Although there is no alcohol in the spent grain, the little piggies can’t seem to get enough – the grain just makes them very happy!

We encourage you to do your part in enhancing the happiness of the pigs on the seacoast of NH. Drink a beer – feed a pig!

Pours a lightly hazy medium golden straw color with a huge fluffy bone white head that persists forever. Smells of clove and other assorted yeasty esters along with a sweet honey like malt and a mild wheat spice aroma. The flavor is sharp with a hit of fruity tart with a solid dose of clove. Light apple and cherry fruits with a light sweet light sugary malt flavor. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a sharp sweet tart mouthfeel. Decent brew, I could certainly entertain the thought of drinking this on a warm day.
