COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Medium-bodied, unfiltered wheat beer with a clove & banana aroma and a refreshing, tart finish. We dubbed this German-styled wheat beer Hessian as this was the name of German volunteer soldiers in the Revolutionary War. The period flags are of the Hessian towns where the soldiers originated.

Cloudy straw-orange pour, minimal sudsy head and webbed lace. Citrus, wheat and clove notes to the bouquet. Great clove and banana notes in the flavor! These accompany, indicative of style, wheat and citrusy (orange-lemon) contingencies. The clove really adds to the finish and after. The mouthfeel is slick to the palate, and went down perfectly for a hot summer July 4th!

Sampled at Brewgrass Fest. Hazy pale gold color with minimal head. Aroma was wheaty, fruity, and a little spicy (just a touch). Had a definate tangy bite in the finish. Not bad, but certainly not my favorite Hefeweizen.
