“This may just be your favorite summertime beer.  Peach and wheat beer are a perfect marriage of this fruit with a hefeweizen”

Summertime.  It’s already hot and muggy in Ohio, consequently I usually don’t want to drink darker beers or heavier IPA’s…I want something to quench my thirst but also have more taste than a commercial pilsner.

Why a Peach Hefeweizen?  I believe that hefes offer a much better beer base for fruits than do typical ales.  Ales I find are too malty and sweet and don’t balance the fruit well.  Hefeweizens are lighter and more distinctive with their characteristic yeast.  I chose peach as not a lot of people do peach but I was later surprised at how awesome the flavor is.

Peachy! features about 50% wheat and 50% pilsner malt.  You get that perfect light, cloudy beer where the cloves and bananas of typical Hefeweizens are subdued just enough to let the peach really come through.
