This Is Hefeweizen – The Moon Under Water Pub & Brewery

From Victoria BC’s The Moon Under Water Pub & Brewery comes their “This Is Hefeweizen”.  The beer pours a cloudy golden colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of wheat, banana, fruits, spices and yeast.  The flavour is of wheat, citrus, banana, spices and yeast.  The alcohol content comes in at 5.5%.  Hefeweizen beer as great summer sippers and this one is right up there with the best in BC.

Commercial Description:  Unlike every other beer we have brewed, this one follows some style guidelines. Why? Because in a land where big breweries produce bland, boring blonde ales and pass them off as Hefeweizens, something traditional needed to be done. Brewed with 70% weizen, decoction mashed, and open-fermented with hefe from Bavaria. This is Hefeweizen.

  2. It is good isn’t it? And yes, if the carbonation was off, then it definitely had to be a bad batch. I’ve had a few bottles of this now and they were always spot on with the head.
