Our Impression: If you can’t tell, we have a fascination with German-style beers here at Brues Alehouse.  German wheat beers are found year-round throughout Bavaria, and they are easily some of the most refreshing and nourishing beers they brew.  We’ve attempted many German Wheats, and we’ve learned that they are about as difficult to correctly brew as their lagers.  Over the past couple years we've continually dialed in the process for our wheat beers, and we feel BruWeisse is approaching the elegance of a classic German Hefeweizen.

Aroma: The aroma is dominated by the yeast and complex malt character.  Sweet malt, banana, and clove create a nice, rich aroma.

Appearance: BruWeisse pours golden-orange with moderate cloudiness due to the non-flocculating yeast and the higher protein content from the wheat.  A thick white lasting foam emerges with high carbonation.
Flavor: Our hefeweizen takes on the true character of a Bavarian Weissbier, or Hefeweizen.  This beer is very smooth, non-bitter, and features the classic notes of banana and clove.  Moderate malt character balances this beer and gives a touch of sweetness.
Mouthfeel: Full, chewy, and creamy, with high carbonation.
