C. B. & Potts Big Horn Hefeweizen

What the brewers say

“A German-style hefeweizen. Characteristically cloudy with notes of banana and clove.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “A big hit of wonderful esters—especially banana—and bubblegum. Some spicy phenols emerge as the beer warms, mostly clove, with a touch of citrus and pepper. Lemon tart and pastry follow, bringing forth Froot Loop aroma, and bready and herbal notes linger behind the yeast.”

Flavor: “Such subdued flavor, which is surprising, given the hint of sour acetic in the aroma. Delicate clove and pepper phenols. Some great citrus notes of orange and lemon develop, and even more lemon in the aftertaste. The banana esters are on the lighter side, and balance with the sweet wheat and bread crust malts. Creamy and medium-light body, but a dry finish.”

Overall: “The palate is soft, with a sweet body, and complex fruity and spiciness that carry the beer into a smooth, dry finish. While it’s not classic for a hefe, and it’s on the lighter side in body and ester profile for the style, it’s still a nice balance.”
