In 2012, we changed the style of our summer offering from an IPA to an unfiltered Hefeweizen ale. Over 80% of the grains this brew are derived from malted wheat which lends an exceptional softness to the palate. Naturally underlying, but not overpowering, banana esters arise on the nose, providing an exceptional addition to enjoying this beer’s experience. We LOVE these flavors and they are brought out by the yeast, so we made a decision to leave this beer 100% unfiltered. Hence, there is a natural yeast sediment in the bottles that you can chose to decant off of or swirl up to be poured into your favorite tasting glass. Lastly what makes this beer truly unique is addition of hops after this beer’s fermentation: we have chosen the perfect combination to give a 100% natural citrusy lemon aroma and taste alleviating the “obligatory” orange wedge garnish. At 4.5% it is literally the PERFECT sunny day (or really any day) brew: Newport Storm Summer Hefeweizen!

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow body under a one finger frothy white head that had decent retention. The nose is not your typical Hefe, it’s very fruity with a lemony twang, there’s some light yeastiness and wheat in here as well. The flavor is a little heavy on the lemon for my tastes, I prefer a straight up yeast-driven German Hefe. There’s a decent soft yeastiness to this though that’s quite pleasant. Fairly soft and well rounded on the palate, but with an annoying lemony smack on the finish. Meh, not up my alley as far as the style goes.

JaBier (5286) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle purchased at Nikki’s Liquors in Providence. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Malty nose with some banana and creamy wheat. Malty flavor with banana accents before a peppery yeast finish.

BroSpud (1825) - , Massachusetts, USA - AUG 7, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow with a decent white head that sticks around.Very refreshing and surprisingly tasty despite the low ABV. Does not hold up to the better Hefe’s out there but not a bad summer beer.

rumproasts (3750) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2013
bottle. Golden with small head. This is an odd take on a hefeweizen. It’s got a strange hoppiness which seems out of place, but is kind of interesting.

Light hefe, at a wedding in Boston, bottle. Light hazy gold crisp did what I needed it to do

MightyHef (18) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 25, 2013
A nice summer Hefe. Light citrus and banana...not a lot of clove present...more of an American Hefe rather than European style. Enough taste to enjoy but easy drinking enough to be a porch pounder during the summer.
