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.

Gr0ve (2134) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2013
330 ml bottle. Cloudy deep golden. Medium off-white head. Bold banana and clove aroma. Very flavourful weissbier. Nice sparkling carbonation and a soft maltiness to balance. Some residual sweetness, but enough bittering hops and carbonation to balance.

the palate on this hefeweizen is maybe in my top 5(very rich with flavor that stays on your tongue for a while)but i get a medicine type flavor at the end that just did not go down well.

Bottle. Pours cloudy orange/golden with a nice, big, white head. In aroma beer is fruity (citrus) with hints of bananas and yeasts. In taste we have same things as in aroma with a little more yeast. Beer has very high carbonation, medium body. Good hefe weizen

A very crisp, refreshing Hefeweizen. It’s low on sweetness and edges more towards a spicy, tangy, yeasty flavour.
