Description of Sea Biscuit Hefeweizen:

While Germany is 4000 miles across the Atlantic, you can get a little taste of it here on the Great South Bay with Sea Biscuit Hefeweizen. Following old Bavarian standards dating back to the Middle Ages, Sea Biscuit was designed and brewed as an authentic German Weissbier. Choice German wheat and barley were selected and combined with Hallertau Mittelfruh hops and fermented using a traditional German Hefeweizen yeast which produces the genuine characteristics of this beer. Clean malty sweetness balanced with mild hops, Sea Biscuit finishes with subtle notes of vanilla, clove and banana. This beer’s thick, foamy head pours beautifully over the crown of your glass bringing you back to the olden days when real beer was just beer and the wiser men drank weizen…Prost!
