Pike hefe: hefeweizen

Local two-row and Purple Egyptian barley pair with the Hefeweizen’s traditional wheat base to create a complex grain bill that uplifts subtle notes of banana and clove.

  • Purple Egyptian barley is prized for its earthy quality, mellow nutty character, and notes honey.

  • During fermentation, a reaction between acids and alcohol create the yeast esters that are responsible for the fruity notes in a Hefeweizen, while phenol compounds create the style’s signature clove-like notes.

  • “Hefe” refers to the yeast held in suspension giving Hefeweizens their cloudy appearance, while “weizen” means wheat, the other key ingredient to creating this light style with a full mouth-feel.
