From Backroads Brewing in Nelson comes their “Hefeweizen”. The beer pours a mildy cloudy and deep golden colour with a white head. The aroma consists of wheat, banana, spices and some sweetness. The flavour is of what, banana, citrus, grain, wheat and sweetness. The alcohol content comes in at 5% with an IBU of 13. This is not a style I gravitate to but this one was well made and enjoyable.
Commercial Description: A light, refreshing, Bavarian-style wheat beer featuring distinctive clove and banana notes with hints of vanilla and citrus. This cloudy, golden haze is topped with a thick white head and balanced by a delicate dose of classic German hops.
