German for “yeast wheat”, Hefeweizen is a classic Bavarian style that’s both cloudy and bright. Despite its near-ubiquity in modern day southern Germany, pale wheat beers only gained their contemporary popularity in the mid-1960’s. A classic Hefeweizen is unfiltered and sports a hazy appearance, thanks to wheat’s high protein content. Banana and clove flavors abound, supported by high carbonation, a dry finish, and a fluffy mouthfeel.

Sometimes you’ve just gotta embrace your inner tourist. We gave our traditionally brewed Hefeweizen a change of scenery by adding a playful splash of real lemon purée that recalls that fresh-squeezed, souvenir lemonade cup feeling. And we transported our whimsical lederhosen-clad mascot from his original Alpine perch to a coastal beach locale (with some rad polarized shades!) We hope his chill vibes inspire you to treat yourself to a refreshing escape of your own.
