Wheat is an important and typical flavor carrier in this type of beer. As with all other beers we also work at Rothaus Hefeweizen with a slightly higher original gravity of 12.5%.

In addition to the fine hop bitterness (13 bitter units), Rothaus Hefeweizen is typical of the variety, with another important flavor component, the yeast. In Hefeweizen the yeast is not mixed, but a top-fermenting yeast is used. Unlike our other beers, it comes with unfiltered wheat beer bottling.

Ingredients: water, wheat malt, barley malt, hops, hop extract, yeast.

A middle of the road hefeweizen. Can't seem to be able to discern one from the other aside from the rare Hefeweizen that stands out...this wasn't one of them ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mooie troebele kleur met een kleine schuimkraag. Smaak is echt superzacht. Zo hoort een hefeweizen te smaken. Mooie fruittonen en wat spice erdoor. Dit is een toppertje van Rothaus.

500ml bottle from Great Grog. Pours clear golden orange with a huge white head. Aromas of wheat, cereal grains, dough. Faint lemon. Banana and clove kicks in once I pour the sediment in the glass. Taste is light sweet, more brad and lemon. Cranny texture, clean finish.
