“…Only the best in­gre­di­ents are used in our un­fil­tered Weiss­bier—brewer’s wheat grown in the Cham­pagne re­gion and se­lected cer­ti­fied hops from the Haller­tau.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Wow—re­ally heavy on the straw­berry, grape­fruit, peach, ba­nana, and melon, cre­at­ing a nice bal­ance be­tween the fruit es­ters and spicy phe­no­lics. Good wheat malt, min­eral back­ground, and lots of candy. Mild herbal hops nose.” Fla­vor: “The wheat fla­vor in this one is soft, with a smooth creamy body and light car­bon­a­tion. Crisp hops bit­ter­ness with­out be­ing dom­i­nant that pro­vides bal­ance and char­ac­ter. Moderately sweet ba­nana es­ters, but the phe­nol is less pro­nounced. The fin­ish is dry, with a touch of light bit­ter­ness. The style is Ger­manic, but not ex­ces­sively so.” Over­all: “Awe­some Bavar­ian yeast aro­mat­ics, nice hops bit­ter­ness, and some re­ally fun caramelly malt, but the aro­mas were pretty muted over­all. It’s a good fruity hefe, with a lin­ger­ing wheat and fruit af­ter­taste I loved. Nicely bal­anced and re­fresh­ing, but mildly fla­vored.”
