Style: Hefeweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.10%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Hefeweizen is a light, unfiltered wheat beer, often served with a wedge of lemon. Made with thirty percent American winter wheat, Hefeweizen is balanced with sweet golden malted barley and Tettnang hops from Oregon that evoke a hint of spice. The American ale yeast is subtle, but the grains take center stage and, when left in the unfiltered beer, gives it that classic cloudiness and additional body.

The German Hefeweizen (say “hay-fuh-vite-sin”) traces its history to 16th century Bavaria and eventually came to America with the wave of German immigrants in the 19th century. Although the rise of light lager beer diminished the sales of wheat beers on both sides of the Atlantic, the sale of wheat beers began to rise after WWII, especially in Southern Germany where a unique ale yeast strain fermented the beer with banana and clove esters. In the late 20th Century, the new American craft brewers sought out a lighter style to complement their beer selection and brewed Hefeweizens with the same yeast strains they used to brew their Pale Ales and Stouts.

Enjoyed at the brewpub in St Louis, reviews from notes.

A: half finger head with nice lacing on a cloudy dull gold body.

S: simple with wheat and light lemon custard sweetness.

T: flavor is dull, not much sweetness and almost flavorless with wheat, wood and very light citrus.

M: light body and light to moderate carbonation.

Overall: drinkable but boring beer, boring even for the style.
