Notes/Commercial Description:
In Bavaria, wheat beers were once the exclusive province of royalty, and it’s easy to see why. With their reliance on costly wheat, a refined aroma and a magical combination of complexity and easy drinkability, wheat beers tickle just about everyone’s fancy. They deserve wider appreciation. Straight-Up Hefe-Weizen is brewed with 60 percent malted wheat and 40 percent pilsner and other malts. It is an unfiltered beer with a cloudy appearance due to yeast and proteins that add a rich creamy mouth feel. A classic Bavarian wheat beer yeast is used, adding subtle layers of banana, bubblegum and spicy clove, the signature trio for the style. The finish is creamy, dry and just a touch tangy.

Poured this a tad cold with a smallish, off-white, foamy head that quickly settled and some lace. Color is a hazy amber. Aroma is traditional with the fruit and yeast, bit of spice; but, yeast dominates. Flavor's like nose although it is subdued. Some tang stands out, then bitter ties with fruit. Body/carbonation are average. Finish is like flavor, with the tang again standing out and lasting the longest. No off qualities. Drinkable, but is nothing special.
