Moon Under Water Brewery – This Is Hefeweizen Review

Moon Under Water did not mess around when they named their Hefeweizen. They went straight to the point and called it “This Is Hefeweizen”. As a cloudy, amber coloured ale this Moon creation pours with 2 1/2 fingers of beautiful head that settles relatively slowly. The aroma is lightly sweet with notes of passion fruit, clove and a bunch of bananas. The taste starts off with a mid carbonated malt that builds into a wheat-fruit filled mid-section. A creamy texture comes in at the back end leaving the palate with a clove and banana finish that is both light and refreshing while remaining true to what a Hefeweizen truly is. This Is Hefeweizen is a fairly traditional German Hefeweizen and quite subsequently quite delicious.

Alcohol – 5.5%
Size – 650ml bottles
Price – $6.40 (16th Street Liquor Store)
