Firestone Walker Hefeweizen


Brewed by Firestone Walker Brewing Co.
Paso Robles, California USA
Style: German Hefeweizen | Ratings: 61 | Alcohol: 4.7%
Hefeweizen is a traditional Bavarian wheat beer brewed using a classic German recipe. The malt bill is 60% wheat resulting in a light approachable beer with a hazy opalescent appearance and a soft gentle texture. A special Bavarian yeast strain was selected for this beer which imparts a beautifully fruity flavor and aroma with hints of tropical fruit, banana, light citrus and undertones of clove like spice. The hopping rate is very low allowing the wheat and malt character to shine through. A perfect example of a 100% natural and traditional wheat ale. A true session beer. Paired with Anything Seafood, very refreshing on hot day.

O.G. = 12.5P
Color = 6.0L
IBU = 10.0 (very low)
ABV = 4.7%
Note: Firestone Walker sells this beer to bars and restaurants as a "private label" product that the establishments are allowed to name whatever they choose. If you rate a hefeweizen of any name that was brewed by Firestone Walker, please enter that rating here.
