A perfect summer sipper, this is a classic representation of the hefeweizen style. It opens with the telltale hefe appearance—a cloudy, golden-orange color and a frothy, fluffy white head that looks like cloud-topped sunshine in a glass. Initial aromas of bready wheat and cereal grain are partnered with hints of banana, raw dough, lemon peel and yeasty spice. Those notes continue through to the smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel, while medium carbonation helps to the palate bright and refreshing through the peppery finish. Merchant du Vin.
