Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Pours to a thin white head that lasts. Hazy yellow. Aroma is sharp, bready wheat, sweet pale malt, and noble hops. Flavor is crisp and sharp with grainy wheat and a touch of Tettnang hop flavor. Mouthfeel is light and dry. Overall a throwback to the popular "American hefes".of the late 90s. Sentimental favorite.

I CAN't put enough love out there for my local, in-person trader, tone77! He calls me a master of The CANQuest (TM) and yet he comes through time and time again with new CANs for me. Cheers, bro!

From the CAN: "For best flavor, keep refrigerated". Bet, yo!

I pulled out my new Schlafly CAN Sessions CAN glass, listened to the Crack, and employed an inverted Glug. I had two fingers of dense, bone-white head with decent retention. Color was a hazy, but not cloudy (WTF?) golden-yellow (SRM = 4). Nose was light, kind of herbal tea-like. I was reminded of Jasmine, but in a Hefe? Where are the bananas? Where are the cloves? Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was mildly spicy, but it lacked any Oomph! or anything that would make me think of or call this a Hefeweizen. Understand, it pains me greatly to dun any of their beers. I know their brewer, Stephen Hale, I have personally met Tom Schlafly and I always recommend them to visitors. Chalk this up to a rare misstep, but I am deeply unimpressed. The finish was bland, boring and lackluster.
