Banana Hammock Summer Hefeweizen – Parallel 49 Brewing

Coming out of East Vancouver’s Parallel 49 Brewing comes the brand new “Banana Hammock” Summer Hefeweizen.  This summer Hefeweizen pours a cloudy straw colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of wheat, banana, clove and yeast.  The flavour is of wheat, clove, banana and yeast.  All banana flavour comes from the yeast and is not added as some have been asking around.  The alcohol content of this brew is 6% while the IBU is 8.  I am not sure if I approve of most banana hammocks but this is one that I can get behind!  This beer is very tasty and should be enjoyed by all that can!

Commercial Description:  Why don’t bananas like getting sun burnt? Because they peel. Ok, the joke may be bad, but this unfiltered, German-style wheat beer with notes of cloves and banana-like esters is very good. We swear.

  1. I have a bottle chilling as we speak. looking forward to it!

    • Pretty sure you will like it! It’s not as refined as Howe Sound Brewing’s King Heffy but it is great anyways. Give it as many years as King Heffy though and you never know.

    King Heffy remains my favourite for sure. P49 always represents well though!
