Sonoma Springs' Weissbier is on the lighter side of Bavarian-style Wheat beers. Toasted notes from imported Munich malt are complemented by a healthy dose of domestic wheat malt from Kansas. An old world technique called open top fermentation allows the yeast to freely rise, creating many subtle flavors such as clove and vanilla for spice and fruit flavors like banana, plum and/or lychee.
Wheat or Wit
An Americanized version of the Hefeweizen, similarly cloudy but more hoppy with none of the banana or clove flavors. Typically a lighter and refreshing style.
