In this classic wheat beer we use our own unique wheat yeast. This is a very refreshing beer with flavors of spice and citrus, a perfect summer beer.

Nonshaugen (201) - Fetsund, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2015
Golden yellow to light amber in the glass, hazy and unclear, as usual for the style. Medium carbonation, just a small amount of bubbles. One finger head, dying down to none almost immediately. Aroma of wheat malt, cloves and hay. Tastes exactly the way a true hefeweizen should taste. In the beginning you are under attack from the bittering hops, then the flavours of banana from the yeast, coriander and cloves calms it down, followed by a pleasant dry aftertaste.
