Our take on the classic German hefeweizen style. Bright yellow with lots of haze, this refreshing wheat beer was dry-hopped with Amarillo and Simcoe to create citrusy aromatics alongside classic banana notes. Effervescent with a pleasing dry finish. Pilot versions were called "Hoppy Hefeweizen".

hazy light orange coloured and lacy. simcoe citrus hop aroma. carbonation above average yet still very drinkable. hop oil residue on aftertaste.

On draught at Bar Hop. Very hazy/cloudy light yellow. Very small drool of white head. Pungently grassy aroma, not a lot of sweetness. Taste follows - holy crap that’s bitter, only vaguely hefe-like, more like an ultra dry wit noble hopped to the max. Light body, very astringent, moderately carbonated, longish grassy coating finish. Lively brew.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2013 "Classic German Hefe" it is silly to say, Bellwoods. The Hoppy Hefe is brewed with (American not German??) Weissbier yeast and because of this the tribute is in name only - expect here no fruity or banana flavors and and no spicy clove or notes of lemon, bubblegum or creamy vanilla you might find in a typical Weissbier, or in something like Hopfen-Weisse. With its dry, complex hop bouquet Hoppy Hefeweizen is more of a grassy, pointedly bitter wheat ale with a light body. The beer shows off the distinct herbal quality of its fresh tasty hops and this in particular Bellwoods does very well. I sorta liked it!

From a 500 ml bottle. Very cloudy bright yellow pour with a thick fluffy white head. The aroma is of incredibly juicy citrusy hops. A lot of tropical mango and a little bit of peppery/noble spiciness as well. Fairly light esters but a touch of bubble gum and some lingering fruitiness. Really inviting aroma - bright fruit and juicy citrus with some nice wheaty character as well. It’s got a solid balance of hops and yeast. A really great take on the style - I could drink this all day long.

Juicy citruisy hops predominate on the nose of this one, with a slight sour note and a bit of pine. Not getting many fruity esters, but smells great. Hazy white, more yellow than average for a hefeweizen. Great amount of juicy hops upfront, some pine and a little bit of a flat finish. Very clean and refreshing. Light-medium bodied and quite highly carbonated. Perfect for the warm weather. Overall, hop/yeast profile very similar to a Bellwoods Monogamy, which is definately not a bad thing.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours a hazy yellow with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Pleasant light aroma of citrus hops, light herbs, wheat and grain. Really nice, refreshing flavour of wheat, citrusy hops, citrus fruit, light herbs and an average dry, bitter finish. Average bodied. A great summer-sipper and a joy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
