Notes/Commercial Description:
Rob fell in love with Weiss beers while in Germany a couple years ago. However, it was a business trip, so much of the experience of Germany was through the passenger window of the car at 200 km/hr on the autobahn. With 70% of the grist being wheat, this beer will have a wheaty flavor and the noble hops used in the brewing process are almost undetectable. To avoid the overly banana/ apple/pear aroma and flavor sometimes noticed in hefeweizens, we ferment at a lower temperature for a period time then allow the fermentation temperature to naturally rise as energy from the yeast is released. This gives our hefeweizen a great balance of clove and banana so your pallet is completely satisfied.

I understand that this beer was a bit rough the first time around. Rob the brewer seems to have dialed it in this time around. Not my favorite Hefe out there but that's just a matter of taste. This was still and excellent rendition of the style; give it another shot if you didnt like it the first time around!
