Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: beernut7 on 10-20-2002

Our Hefeweizen is a light, unfiltered wheat beer, often served with a wedge of lemon. Made with thirty percent American winter wheat, Hefeweizen is balanced with sweet golden malted barley and Tettnang hops from Oregon that evoke a hint of spice. The American ale yeast is subtle, but the grains take center stage and, when left in the unfiltered beer, gives it that classic cloudiness and additional body.

The German Hefeweizen (say “hay-fuh-vite-sin”) traces its history to 16th century Bavaria and eventually came to America with the wave of German immigrants in the 19th century. Although the rise of light lager beer diminished the sales of wheat beers on both sides of the Atlantic, the sale of wheat beers began to rise after WWII, especially in Southern Germany where a unique ale yeast strain fermented the beer with banana and clove esters. In the late 20th Century, the new American craft brewers sought out a lighter style to complement their beer selection and brewed Hefeweizens with the same yeast strains they used to brew their Pale Ales and Stouts.

Bottled on 10/31/14 drinking on 1/24/15 (3 month old).

Look is very weak. Minimal head and a sort of off colored body. Smell is very grainy. No banana notes or sweetness or yeastiness like many quality hefs. Taste is decent and flavorful. Lot of grain, but also some sweetness and pleasant notes. Nice creamy feel as well.

Overall, its not the best Hefeweizen but its solid. Would drink again, but won't seek it out. Personally, with the flavor profile and ingredents used, this is an American Wheat Ale and not a Hef.

Delicious, not bitter. The taste is clean and rather sharp, unlike some other unfiltered wheat beers I've tried. Of the wheats I've had, this is my favorite.
