This traditional unfiltered Bavarian wheat beer is the perfect summer thirst quencher, light and effervescent, this beer starts off with a refreshing tanginess and the distinct yeast character is accented by a generous portion of American Hops.

On draft at the Newark location. This one impressed and should make the style proud. I go back and forth on these neuvo styles that seem so trendy, but this was a great combination of seemingly PacNW-hops and the standard hefe-base, a paring that I wouldn’t expect to work great together? Justin at IH may have outdone Brooklyn/Schneider here, imho. Pour was as expected, looked just like a hefe. The aroma was dead on with the hefe ester and yeast base with citrus and pine hops complementing. The flavor followed, a well done hopping that didn’t overwhelm everything else about the wheat base. Really quite nice. I hope it comes back every so oftne.
