Hazy light gold color. Bright, attractive, fruity aromas of banana nut muffin, spiced nuts, and clay with a supple, bright, effervescent, off-dry light-to-medium body and a smooth, appealing, breezy grainy bread, banana custard, tall grass, and minerals finish. A delicious rich and grainy hefe.

A perfect summer sipper, this is a classic representation of the hefeweizen style. It opens with the telltale hefe appearance—a cloudy, golden-orange color and a frothy, fluffy white head that looks like cloud-topped sunshine in a glass. Initial aromas of bready wheat and cereal grain are partnered with hints of banana, raw dough, lemon peel and yeasty spice. Those notes continue through to the smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel, while medium carbonation helps to the palate bright and refreshing through the peppery finish. Merchant du Vin.

Hints of lemon and clove with a mild fruit in the backround. Crisp carbonation with a bite in the dry body that has a slight oily feeling from the solvent(clove) byproducts of the yeast. A slight tartness surrounds the tastebuds upfront with a sourdough like bready flavour in the finish. Hop character is minimal as it should be. Slight spicy clove, mellow yeast, lemon grass and light apple fruity flavours touch the tounge. Punchy with a flavourful kick, pushing the envelope on refreshingly crisp and dry. Great after a meal to help to digest ... or to wash down some bratwurst and spicy mustard.
