Description 

A unique Southwestern Style Hefe that explodes with notes of citrus, lemon peel, banana and clove, offering an unfiltered wheat to beat the heat. The fruitiness of Hefe pairs perfectly with curries and sweet dishes as well as fresh cheeses such as Mozzarella and Chèvre.

The beer starts out with a prominent rich, bready, grainy wheat character in the aroma balanced by a moderate level of ripe banana, very light clove and a light citrus tartness. The flavor follows the aroma closely, and adds light mixed berry fruit and a low, pleasant hop bitterness that helps to dry out the residual malty sweetness that emerges mid-palate. The banana and clove slowly fade as the beer warms. A very light spiciness from the wheat develops late and lingers into the aftertaste. The fusion of German Weizen characteristics creates a unique and flavorful beer that is pintable and enjoyable to drink.
