Bert Grant's Hefeweizen

Yakima Brewing Co

USA

In fairness to the beer, a rainy January day isn't ideal hefeweizen weather. Not sure that it would have mattered, because this isn't an ordinary hefe. It looks OK for beer, but too clear for hefe. It tastes decent, but doesn't have that banana/clove yeasty flavor. It's not bad for a thirst quencher but it's a terrible example of a hefeweizen. Bert Grant has a very good reputation but needs to correctly label this brew. It's a wheat, not a hefe, and there is a big difference.
