COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hellgate Honey Hefeweizen is a smooth drinker for those hot summer days. The honey helps boost the alcohol content while also adding a floral bouquet to the nose. Yeast is left in the beer to add body (creamy mouth feel in beer geek’s terms) head retention and stability (another beer geek term), and a slight haziness. All to let you know that you’re drinking a fresh locally made beer that is still alive! 6% abv; 16 IBUs

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 3, 2006
Draught at the Brewpub: Hazy blonde color, light head and lacing. Nose of husky wheat, light honey. Boo. the flavor is dull, chewy and enriched with bad karma. Eh, finishes creamy, not my thing.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2007
On draught at the brewery’s taproom in Missoula, Montana. Pours a hazy golden amber brew with a fast dissolving white head the leaves behind a white ring. Aroma of multi-grain breakfast cereal, honey with some citrus hoppy scents. Taste is light carbonated, bready malt with some citrus flavors. Finish has some sweet malt character than then clean in the aftertaste. This is more of a light American Wheat beer though it is labeled as a Hefeweizen.
