Hundreds of years ago in Germany, wheat beers were considered 'breakfast' or 'after church' beers, a testament to their light refreshing flavor and a tradition of drinking them on weekend occasions. We invite you to enjoy our Hefeweizen (hay-fa-VEIT-sen) any day of the week.

12oz brown bottle, sample from the brewery.

Cloudy peach hued brew, great looking head. Hint of banana bread and taffy with some faint powdered clove and bandaids with some bread in the aroma. Crisp and smooth, fluffy medium body. Bready palate, banana pith and banana bread, mild clove spiciness, lands dry with some faint phenols. Crisp and balanced, pretty drinkable as well.
