COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ahh, Weiss beer; is there anything more refreshing and indicative of Summer? As promised, here is the second installment of this incredible seasonal. Far and away, the most popular specialty we have ever released here at La Cumbre, our very traditional Bavarian-style Hefeweizen is brewed with 60% malted wheat and a very unique yeast strain resulting in a rush of banana and clove in the nose, and a big, lush, milkshake-like mouthfeel. While the alcohol is moderate, watch out, you’ll go through 3 of these faster than a passing monsoon rain.

deyholla (6633) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice combination of sweet wheat, light clove and a hint of banana. Flavor has much more clove with banana and sweet wheat backing.

TXBadger (1381) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Pours a bright but cloudy golden color with white head. Raw wheat, coriander, clove and some yeast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some yeast notes.

milewide (1511) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Totally unfiltered! Lots of spice flavor, without excess sweetness. Limited head as expected. Impossible to get more flavor in a 5.1% brew!

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
Lightly hazy, light tan colour. Very sweet nose, banana but also some bubblegum, higher alcohols. Body is a bit thin and also a bit sticky...an odd combination. Phenols are plastic first then bubblegum. Cloying finish. Sorry, Jeff, this just didn’t work at all for me.

473ml can from Elise. Hazy yellow orange body. Not much of a head. Pleasant honey banana-clove aroma. Medium bodied, well balanced. Smooth golden malt tones, big yeast notes. Some lemony clove tart bitterness up front, but fades into a sweet malty finish. A pretty solid stateside Hefe.
