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.

I had this beer on-tap in a weizen glass at the Seattle location.

Appearance: cloudy medium yellow hue with a thick finger of creamy ivory foam. Quite attractive!

Smell: clove and some grainy wheat. Could be smoother, but overall pretty good.

Taste: heavy clove flavor with a bit of banana and some alcohol heat. I like the esters, but there's a little harshness here too that I don't love.

Mouthfeel: light body for the style with a good carbonation and decent creaminess.

Overall: not a bad hefeweizen, especially for an American take on the style.

A great example. It has a smooth taste, great silky feel and a really nice hint of bananas
