What is Hefeweizen? “Hefe” (“with yeast”) and “weizen” (“wheat”) – also called Hefeweissbier – is the German-style wheat beer that is perhaps the most well-known wheat beer style. Unfiltered Hefeweizen is cloudy in appearance, with a pale to light-amber color. The yeast contributes to the mouth-feel and medium body, with yeasty esters evoking banana aroma and flavor, as well as the phenolic spiciness of clove and sometimes vanilla. Some of the best Hefeweizen food pairings include German fare and seafood dishes.
