Description Additional Information
 
Sometimes less is more. The love2brew German Hefeweizen is a great example of what a Hefeweizen should be; simple, to the point, and delicious. Following the German purity law Reinheitsgebot this brew is only made with grains, hops (German hops in our case), water, and yeast. Yet for such a simple brew the end result is a delicious, refreshing, traditional Hefeweizen full of esters that give a distinct banana and clove flavor and aroma. The perfect beer to have in the bottle or keg all year round!

Experimental Brewing Ideas

Banana Bread Beers

When I brew my Hefeweizens I like to ramp up my fermentation temperature slowly to get the maximum Banana notes. If you want to go the Banana bread try grabbing 1# of Victory & Biscuit malt and adding it to your mash/steeping grains for a layer of bread and toast - a great compliment!

Culinary Corner

Acidic Citrus and Salads

Acidic Citrus and Salads are a great way to contrast the sweet banana notes of a Hefeweizen. Think a Watermelon and Tomato salad, a Beet Salad with Goat Cheese, or hard toasted bread with Ricotta cheese and olives!
