Wheat Beer (German)

from 39.99

Style: German Wheat beer
ABV: 5.0%
Color: Golden

German wheat beer is light and crisp, and has less hop character than American wheat beer.  The predominant flavor of German wheat beers comes from the use  of special yeast, which produces fruity-esters to a greater or lesser degree. These fruity esters can make the beer taste like someone spiced it with banana, clove, and nutmeg - but these flavors all derive from the yeast, no fruit or spice is used.  Higher fermentation temperatures of 75-80 degrees will increase ester production in almost any yeast, while lower temperatures 65-70 degrees will minimize ester production.
