COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hällby är en traditionell tysk veteöl med kraftig jästfällning vilket gör att ölet är disigt. Vi har använt den berömda jästen från Weihenstephan som ger ölet en doft av kryddnejlika och banan. Ölet är bryggt på lika delar pilsnermalt och vetemalt, och vetemalten ger ölet en mjuk och jordig maltkaraktär. Beskan är mycket låg och lurar försiktigt i bakgrunden. Hällby Hefe är en härlig törstsläckare inför sommarsäsongen.

Pours out in a hazy yellowish golden colour with a small firm white head. Rounded fruity and a bit yeasty aroma of Seville oranges, over-riped bananas with hints of dough and cloves. Medium to light-bodied with notes of cloves, yeast, white bread, bananas, cookies and mild notes of citric fruits. Mild and rounded finish of citric fruits, cookies and dough.

Weak weak scent and taste. Not so fond of this beer. Wheat beer is not my forte and is not impressed with this beer. The aftertaste remains low. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings

ekstedt (5317) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2012
Bottle (75 cl) from Systembolaget. Clody golden, medium large white head. No clear clove or bananas, the aroma is rather dominated by oramges and lemons, with some subtle spices, and earthy funky notes. Light to medium bodied, high carbonation. Dry with a light acidity and low bitterness. Suspiciously brett infected, but less so than other Eskilstuna beers I’ve had lately, and here it renders a refreshing and tart quality to the beer.

Cunningham (4307) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2012
Cloudy yellow colour with a big white head. A bit acidic aroma with some wheat and banana. The flavour are about the same. Moderate sweet wheat with some banana. And an unpleasant acidic note in the background.
