Hefeweizen Ale

STYLE DESCRIPTION:
Our easy-to-drink, flavorful Hefeweizen made its debut as one of the first four beers to be brewed at the Schlafly Tap Room. It’s not a traditional German Hefeweizen with notable clove and yeast aromas, but is made with 30% American winter wheat and balanced with sweet golden malted barley and hops from Oregon that evoke a hint of spice. The cloudiness comes from the absence of filtration, giving it a smooth, full body and a prominent grain flavor that offers superb drinkability.
