Notes: LIGHTFUL is brewed with a traditional 60/40 wheat-to-barley ratio, and a mash schedule aimed at promoting those bright, peppery notes we find in our favorite Weissbiers. Lightly hopped with Crystal and fermented cool in a horizontal tank with a classic Weissbier strain. A true study in simplicity. Notes of cracked pepper, Asian pear, cooked lemon, honeysuckle, and healthy breakfast smoothie.

Had this on 2020-01-12 near Pittsburgh, PA from a 16oz canned on 2019-11-24

A - Clear straw-gold with a 2.5-finger white head and light lace

S - Rising bread. Light banana, clove, lemon and floral

T - Banana bread, pear, lemon, pepper, very mild clove.  Finishes with a flash of bitterness to balance the fruit and bread flavors. 

M - Medium body and carbonation.  Crisper than some Hefes.

O - Enjoyable take on the style, I appreciated the dryness and bit of bitterness to clean the palate. Worth seeking out.

Poured from a tallboy can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Nearly clear golden pour with thick fluffy white head. Nice lacing.

S: Yeast and spice... cloves and banana.

T.F: Light crackery grains and wheat. Strong yeast and phenols... banana, honey, cloves, and thyme. Semi-sweet and spice. Lemongrass and fruit. Light and effervescent.... more yeast at the finish.

O: An elite Hefeweizen. Low ABV and super drinkable... outstanding beer and a lovely take on the style.

From draft at TH. From the tap list: “Hefeweizen 5.6% Brewed with a 60/40 wheat-to-barley ratio, and a mash schedule aimed at promoting those bright, peppery notes we find in our favorite Weissbiers. Lightly hopped with Crystal and fermented cool with a classic Weissbier strain. A study in simplicity. Notes of cracked pepper, Asian pear, honeysuckle, and healthy breakfast smoothie.” Delicious.
