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.

Tap at La Cumbre. Pours standard hazy yellow with fluffy topper. Aroma is banana. Taste is yeasty and spicy with some fruity notes. Full mouthfeel. Tasty example of the style.

16oz can poured into a tall glass. Hazy pale straw, short lived two finger head.
Big, artificial banana candy aroma, like a bag of banana laffy taffy. Clove, if there was any, was drowned out by the banana. Medium body, and creamy mouthfeel. Flavor was overly sweet, with tons of ripe, mashed banana, but not much else.

Marheb (2756) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Des céréales croustillantes comme on trouve dans une Helles ou une Pilsner mais avec des soubresauts modérés de clou de girofle et de banane. Très frais et tranchant avec une buvabilité effrayante, pas la soupe repas chargée d’amidon qui caractérise souvent le style.

Can brought back by David and shared tonight at the Christmas Party. Rich bready malt with light citrus and lots of banana and clove to counter. Smooth rich flavor, light yeasty flavors. Nice Hefe!

Sampled at GABF 2014. Pours a beautiful, hazy orange creme with white lacing. Aroma is super wheaty with light banana character. Mouthfeel is medium to full-bodied with notes of spice, rich wheat, yeast, light grass and banana. Nice wheat.
