COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beginning almost a decade ago we began working with Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper to help them in their mission of protecting the river which provides clean water for millions of folks in the southeast (quite possibly you and definitely the brewery!) What began as donating cases of Sweetwater for fundraisers and post river clean refreshments turned into the Save the Hooch Campaign, raising over $250,000 to date for UCR’s mission. The success of the campaign has spread throughout the southeast to other local communities and their local Waterkeepers. Waterkeeper Hefeweizen continues our mission to raise aware

Crisp clean light biscuits sweetness with good clove and bananas presence, basically to style with light hints of hoppiness in a mildly bitter finish. Very good American interpretation.

tricyclist (752) - Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Full pour if golden liquid with off white head. Nose is fruited but not a lot, paired with typical hefe yeast esters, and some spice. Flavor follows, not as spiced though which makes it more enjoyable for me. I’d do it again.

Sweetwater Waterkeeper Hefeweizen has a thin, white head (small shelf glass), a very hazy (powdery sediment suspended throughout), yellow-gold appearance, bubble streams, and a small amount of lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of spiced white bread, coriander, and a touch of lemon peel. Taste is of those elements, with some banana pudding, orange chutney, a shade of hop bitterness, and white pepper. Mouthfeel is medium and fluffy, and Sweetwater Waterkeeper finishes dry, easy going, and refreshing. RJT
