Straw to amber in color, this wheat beer (German in origin) contains aromas and flavors of banana and clove. “Weizen” means “wheat” and “hefe” means yeast. It has low acidity and moderate alcohol levels and is very highly carbonated with a long-lasting head. Pair with seafood, chevre (goat cheese), and key lime pie. Best served at 40-45 degrees in a Weizen glass.
