This is a different take on the traditional Hefeweizen. Brewed like a Hefe, fermented like a Hefe, but hopped like an IPA! Loads of hops were used, including dry hop additions, this Hefe rounds that lovely clove-banana flavors with a burst of citrus and fruit!
We used a nice, equal blend of Galena, Casacade and Palisade for each addition

Sampled on draft at GTMW 2011. Pours a hazy peach color with a thin head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma of big spicy clove, apples, wheat and an earthy note. Bitter taste with notes of wheat, nutty notes and spices. Medium bodied.
