COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our German-style Hefeweizen is an unfiltered wheat beer that is handcrafted using only pure imported Hallertau Mittelfrueh noble German hops to give it an original old world taste. With its white creamy long lasting head, golden color, subtle aroma of bananas, and light hop taste, our Hefeweizen has a crisp refreshing taste. The smooth balanced finish makes this a perfect beer for everyday enjoyment!

Medium sweet with bread, orange, banana, light hay and cereal. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with modest wheat bread, yeast, mellow fruits. Easy.

DiarmaidBHK (3170) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle from Pizza Port Bottle Shop (Carlsbad) Pours orange with very little head. Doesn’t leave much lacing either. A slight banana thing on the nose. Astringent on the tongue, it dries out the mouth to a ridiculous degree. Jeez! Can’t anyone in this state make a decent hefe?

yngwie (12722) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2013
On tap at the taproom. An unclear orange-golden beer with a small white head. Light aroma with some banana and cloves. A touch of something puke like too. Sweet flavor with banana and some cloves. Hint of orange too. Low on bitterness. Short finish. A very boring one, and not very good either. 130812
