A German style wheat beer, this style is characterized by by yeast-forward flavours of banana and clove that are produced during fermentation. Weissbier means Wheat or White Beer, the style can also be referred to as Hefeweizen meaning Yeast-Wheat (beer) due to the aforementioned contribution of yeast flavours and aromas to this beer. The haze seen in this style is due to suspended yeast in the beer.
Special Ingredients: The beer is made up of 100% German malts, wheat constituting the majority of the grains.
The beer pours a beautiful russet orange colour with a thick fluffy white head. On the nose, a ripe banana peel note dominates along with a baking spice (think cloves and nutmeg) that, along with the underlying wheat bread character from the malt, makes up an impression of banana bread. On the palate the ripe banana tones are prevalent with a light caramel adding sweetness to the brew. Some apricot and fresh-baked bread tones become evident along with a clove and spice finish of moderate intensity that promotes drinkability. The beer finishes with impressions of wheat bread and a slight light-caramel sweetness
Food Pairings: Excellent pairing with sausages and pretzels. For fans of the style, an all-dayer.
