Red Fife Hefeweizen – Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub


From Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub in Victoria BC comes the “Red Fife Hefeweizen”.  The beer pours a hazy golden colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of banana, bubblegum, clove, yeast and wheat.  The flavour is of banana, wheat, citrus, yeast and bubblegum.  The alcohol content comes in at 4.5% with an IBU of 20.  I am not sure what the Red Fife Wheat adds to this beer but it is an enjoyable one.

Commercial Description:  Red Fife Wheat, Canada’s first contribution to Slow Food International’s Arc of Taste, incorporated into this classic Bavarian style symbolizes brewing in the new world, blending old world techniques with new world opportunities.
