ABOUT THE STYLE
German for “yeast wheat”, Hefeweizen is a classic Bavarian style that’s both cloudy and bright. Despite its near-ubiquity in modern day southern Germany, pale wheat beers only gained their contemporary popularity in the mid-1960’s. A classic Hefeweizen is unfiltered and sports a hazy appearance, thanks to wheat’s high protein content. Banana and clove flavors abound, supported by high carbonation, a dry finish, and a fluffy mouthfeel.
ABOUT THE LABEL
You don’t need to keep your eyes peeled to discover our Hefeweizen’s special ingredient. The quirky lederhosen-clad lemon on our label represents the real lemon peel and purée that bring a bracing burst of citrus to our otherwise traditional Hefeweizen, making it a far more sophisticated brew than its mustachioed mascot might lead you to believe.
