We decided to try our Bavarian Hefeweizen this weekend. It is our second homebrew and it has bottle conditioned for two weeks.
|Bavarian Hefeweizen in Pilsner Glass|
Smell: Banana and clove. Bubblegum. This beer had a strong banana and clove smell throughout fermentation. That smell is entirely attributed to the yeast.
Mouthfeel: Light body. Smooth. Creamy head around the edges of the glass (again, the yeast).
Taste: Smooth wheat. Mellow. Some yeasty earthiness. Very drinkable, as they say. The banana, clove and bubblegum flavors bookend the experience.
Overall: It's awesome! Drinkable. I'm sure another week or two in the bottles will make this beer even better. I can't wait though; I already put some more bottles in the refrigerator. This is one to share with family members over the holidays.
