COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The famous yeast used to produce German Hefeweizen gives El Hefe its classic banana and clove flavors. We then turned German brewing tradition on its head, drawing inspiration from Belgium, and added orange peel and orange blossom honey to layer in a delicate sweetness and refreshing citrus character to the beer.

Sample pour at the brewery. Aroma is sugary with some bubblegum, apple, banana and light clove spiciness. Not as yeasty as I expected. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with big white head that hangs out the entire glass. taste is less bubblegum forward as the aroma, with light banana bread, clove and nice wheat character. Body is light with soft carbonation. After taste is wheat and yeast. Overall not a bad hef. I think more of a citrus twang would make it more rounded. The wheat quality is nice, but the aroma is kind of sweet.

Pours a hazy golden color with a white head. Nice banana aroma, some clove, yeast, and bready sweetness. A little grassy with some citrus on the finish. Decent flavor of banana and clove. Sweet bread, yeast, and some citrus. But it’s grassy and kind of has a generic, bland grain flavor.
