Hoffmann Heffeweizen by Climax Brewing Company

I am watching the Dallas Cowboys are playing the New England Patriots (and it is on TV in NJ) as I type this…so if the blog remains unfinished, it just may be because the laptop goes flying across the room due to Tony Romo and how he plays.

Beer #322 is Hoffmann Heffeweizen by Climax Brewing Company, my favorite brewer from New Jersey.  Brewed in Roselle Park and in a growler no less, this Hefeweizen has an ABV of any where between 4.8% and 5.2%.

Appearance – Clear golden color with a no head anywhere to be seen.

Nose – Banana, Bazooka gum, wheat, yeasty bready smell…typical Hefe aroma.

Taste – I get lemon here that I didn’t get in the nose.  Wheat is also a big part of the flavor.  The Bazooka gum flavor is evident in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel – The body is right smack dab in the middle of medium and light.  Low carbonation makes this quite smooth and refreshing.

Overall –  A nice take on a Hefeweizen although I would like a bit more clove spice flavor.  This would be nice on a hot summer day…or after a nice mountain bike re.
