An easy drinking hazy wheat fruit beer – (BJCP 2015 style guidelines category 20A - Fruit Beer). It was quite hazy, light orange in color and had a huge off white head.  The aroma and flavor of this beer is quite high in a mixed berry profile blended with lime notes with a pleasant background of wheat malt. This beer was very drinkable and with the lime gave a more balanced and less sweet fruit beer profile. Although the name says "Hefe" this is more of the American Hefeweizen background so no banana/clove flavors but has all of the yeast and wheat mouthfeel expected in a hefeweizen. Great drinking beer for the summer!
