Like the fog lingering over the bay, our take on the classic wheat beer is unfiltered for a hazy appearance and fluffy mouthfeel. It’s a smooth, easy drinker, with notes of fresh banana and clove spice that finishes with a soft, mellow sweetness. Just say: “hay-fuh-vite-sun!”

When the brewers set out to make Hefe, they wanted this classic Bavarian style wheat beer to be refreshing, have a touch of citrus, use high quality malted wheat, and have spicy phenolic and fruity ester aromas derived from a German yeast strain. We brought in a true Hefeweizen yeast for our Hefe, but kept the fermentation temperatures slightly lower than those used in Bavaria. As a result, our Hefe is more in line with the tastes of West Coast drinkers, with its refreshing and relatively dry finish, and a subtle accent of the traditional flavors of banana and clove.
