BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Black Forest Brew Haus
New York, United States | website

Style: American Pale Wheat Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our summer wheat shows the diversity of what a wheat beer can be. When compared to our Hefe-Weizen it is much cleaner in flavor as the flavor components famous in our Hefe, such as clove and banana, are a result of the yeast used. For the summer wheat a German ale yeast is used and over 60 pounds of fresh Asian pears were added directly to the fermenter. The pear results in a bit drier finish and a slight fruitiness in the finish. This is an easy drinking beer perfect for 90 degree day with equal humidity.
