Taste Notes

Outstanding Light Hefe. Smooth and crisp. good finish. Well carbonated. Apricot aroma. Low banana and clove flavor, plenty of maltyness. Excellent base for fruit hefe.


Recipe by merddyn (James) from This is my favorite hefe and my standard go-to beer. Leaf Hops Only for this one. Put the hops in a bag and pour the hot wort over the bag. Leave the bag in for the duration of the primary. This extracts just enough bitter to balance the malt and still extracts plenty of aroma. This is a good base for making a hefe fruit beer.
