Today, I think is a first for me – I’m reviewing Griffin Claw’s Faux Pas, a hazy hoppy hef. Beeradvocate lists this as a “Belgian IPA”, which is what I call it in the video, but I think that’s a gross mischaracterization. If anything, the label is true and this is a hazy Hefeweizen. Now you may be saying, all hef’s are hazy, because that’s exactly what I said, but this has a fruity taste that I’ve never experienced before in a hef.
Today I’m checking out Arbor Brewing Company’s Bliss Wheat Hefeweizen. A viewer suggested I try this out after really enjoying Frankenmuth Brewery’s Hefeweizen “The Hef”. How does it measure up? Watch and see what I think!
Frankenmuth Brewery is the oldest brewery in the state of Michigan, and today I try their flagship hefeweizen, “The Hef” – a 5.2% ABV beauty.
I pull out all the stops, including the weizen glass, and I show you the fanciest of fancy ways to pour them. Hefeweizens are known for their cloudy appearance which is due to the high volume of unfiltered wheat and yeast, which also help to contribute to the banana and clove flavors that they typically have.
Come check out The Hef with me.
