Howe Sound Brewing – King Heffy Unfiltered Imperial Hefeweizen Review

Another beer that is truly decorated with awards is the King Heffy Imperial Hefeweizen from Howe Sound Brewing. This lightly clouded, golden colour ale is topped with three fingers of thick and fluffy head. The smells coming off this unique Hef are strong with banana and clove. Secondary notes of vanilla, grass and fruity sweetness come through making for a thick and full smelling wheat ale. In the flavour profile it starts off smooth and thick with wheat tones and malt before building into a banana-infused centre. The banana notes are strong  with a sweetness that leads up to a clove and vanilla finish. The alcohol content at 7.7% is high and noticeable here but does not come off as being boozy. As someone who isn’t always a big fan of traditional Hefeweizen or banana notes this is surprisingly pleasant. The imperial texture, high alcohol and vanilla tones balance this whole mess of flavours into something strong, unique and surprisingly enjoyable. There is a reason that this is a double gold medal winner at the North American Beer Awards so you might as well try it for yourself.

Alcohol – 7.7%
Size – 1000ml
