Notes/Commercial Description:
UFO Hefeweizen is an American unfiltered wheat beer. Perhaps UFO’s initial sensory perception is also its most prominent: a cloudy golden color and a dense, frothy head. The yeast, which has not been filtered out, accounts for the cloudiness of UFO. Wheat malt tends to create a larger head than barley malt, the cereal grain most often used in brewing. When served in a traditional wheat beer glass with a lemon, UFO presents an appealing and distinctive visual image.

The aroma has a faint but clear citrus-like character. This is produced by the special yeast and accounts for the Bavarian tradition of serving hefeweizens with a lemon. The lemon accentuates the yeast’s fruity, tart fragrance. UFO has a soft mouthfeel and a refreshing, light body. The wheat malts and subtle hopping give the beer a mild, delicate flavor. UFO has a clean finish. Unlike some imported hefeweizens, UFO does not have the spicy, tropical flavors typical of European-brewed style.

Poured from a bottle.

Pours a cloudy straw color with some pinkish hue in it. It has a decent head, but dissipated rather quickly and left no lacing.

Smell is a very strong floral raspberry. with hints of wheat in the background. The raspberry scent is very sweet and seems mostly artificial like an artificially flavored raspberry soda.

Taste has a good bit of tart raspberry in it and is quite pleasant. The wheat taste is nice and crisp. The tartness is much more than what the smell would suggest. Mouthfeel is alright and drinkability is good. Perfect for a hot summer day or a bbq.
