COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sommer Fling (formerly Uber) hefe is our traditional German-style hefeweizen that pours cloudy with a straw color and a white, fluffy head. It imparts an aroma with faint bready and spicy notes from the use of wheat and German noble hops; however, the aroma is dominated by cloves with bubblegum. It tastes slightly of bananas balanced with clove phenolics. Overall, this is an effervescent and refreshing beer perfect for enjoying outside as we welcome warm weather.

Hazy golden, small white head, decent lacing. Aroma is a but of wheat, banana, crackers, clove. Flavor is similar, light sweet, a bit of lemon tartness, minimal bitterness. Interesting flavor a bit unlike other hefes. Bubblegum for sure. Medium body, silky mouthfeel
