Notes / Commercial Description:
Hazy golden and filled with smooth wheat character, our Hefeweizen is our take on the classic German beer. Notes of clove and banana, signatures of this traditional style, accent the aroma and flavor, and are complemented by a subtle bready malt character. Clean and crisp, this beer pairs best with a sunny summer day.

Substantial haze, yellow, white head rose to 1/3" but vanished immediately. Aroma was some wheat. Some candy sugar. Some lemon.

Taste was just way too sweet. Spice rack, too much. Not very acccessible, much less palateable.

Doesn't smack of summertime. Or spring. Or anytime really. So much lemon and sugar.
