Hefe Yes!

Week 31: Summit Hefeweizen (July 28-August 3) | Reviewed on October 4th, 2008

I’m adding this review a little late in the game, but then again that’s how life is sometimes.

The Hefe I had came from the Groveland Tap, which carries ALL Summit products.  Our tasting was September 29th, well into Fall and out of HefeWeizen season.  Not surprising, We could definitely taste the difference with this beer.  The typical refreshing phenolic fermentation character had turned to a slight sharp clovey tang.  My Hefe was served with a lemon slice, which was just right to balance against the phenolic bite.  Also present were intense orange and citrus notes, and a slight banana flavor and aroma.

We are pretty lucky to have a local brewer with the guts to present us with such an authentic interpretation of this beer.  My hats off to this Summit beer!
