Tree Hefeweizen

SUPERBOWL SUNDAY!  If you're watching the game, make sure to get your beer on, but be responsible.  Don't drink and drive!

Tree Hefeweizen comes from the Tree Brewing Co. of Kelowna, British Columbia. It comes in big ol' 650mL bottles and contains 5% alcohol.  It pours a sunny orange colour--very cloudy, amply carbonated, and topped with a thick layer of off-white head. It has an aroma of citrus and banana, with a slight dusting of spice--possibly clove.  The Hefeweizen has a wheaty body that contains some fruit notes.

Overall, this is a mild, approachable wheat beer. It's a lovely summertime tipple that will quench your thirst and hold your interest.  My previous experiences with Tree beers have been on the hoppier end of the beer spectrum.  This foray into wheat beer is certainly different, but Tree proves that it's up to the task.

Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
