The American Hefeweizen
That sounds like a total contradiction to have American and Hefeweizen together, but I’m not here to judge. I can cross boundaries and bring two styles of beer together. I’m a big fan of the Hefeweizen, but the true German one was available so I went with the next best thing.
I’ve been looking forward to this one ever since we did the Belgian Wheat a month or so ago. That was a damn good beer and I wanted to continue down that road. I think this one turned out exceptionally well. Even though Theo is more of a dark beer and lots of hops kind of guy he couldn’t find fault with this one.
This is the type of beer you have after slaving away in the hot sun. After toiling in the fields (or at least mowing the lawn) this beer will slake that thirst.
It has a lovely color, an aroma or citrus and a very clean taste. I think this is my personal favorite so far. I have to admit Theo and I had a couple of these while making the Evil Summer Wheat. And then we went out for wings.
This and the Irish Red are at the top of the list to be made again before the end of the year. Theo insisted on taking a case of bottles home with him. That made me cry.
Actually he ended up taking a trunkload of hooch home with him. We keep storing everything here which means he can’t get to it. For some reason this seems to bother him so he rifled through my boxes and looted my beer supply. The damn audacity. Just because he pays for half of it and make it with me he thinks he can come over here and just take it.I’ll give him what for.
I mean come on, look at this beer, it’s dead sexy!
