Bavarian Hefeweizen

The Bavarian Hefeweizen is the fourth wheat beer that I brewed this year, along with Clementine Hefeweizen, Belgian Witbier and American Wheat. I have been experimenting with this style to find one that can become a regular in my brewing rotation. While all of them have been good in their own right, the Clementine Hefe has taken top prize and will make it to the brew kettle again soon.

The Bavarian Hefeweizen was brewed from Northern Brewer's kit utilizing the Danstar Munich Wheat Beer yeast. By all accounts, the results were excellent. The beer is light, smooth and very drinkable. It is over flowing with banana and cloves and has a slight hop finish. Overall I liked it and would recommend it, particularly in the Fall as part of your Octoberfest celebration.
