La Nouvelle Bière: RPAB Rocky Point Hefeweizen


Creation: Rocky Point Hefeweizen

Creator: Rocky Point Artisan Brewers

Date of Birth: 07/07/12

Description: Our hefeweizen is a traditional German-style wheat beer made with a combination of pilsner malt and wheat malt. The ABV is just under 4.80%. There should be little to no bitterness (14 IBU). The beer should finish dry enough to be a good summer refresher. The flavor balance is more to the clove than to banana, though you might get a hint of bubble gum. We tried to give the beer a decent amount of carbonation to lighten the body and make it nice and prickly.


Purchase Location: Thrifty Beverage Centers (Rocky Point)

Super Neat Three-Word Feelings: Bread. Cloudyeast. Clove.
