Sly Fox Royal Weisse

The first official day of spring is just over a week away, which means the Wheats, Wits and Hefes are starting to roll on in to the Hunterdon warehouse! This week’s feature is an oldie, but goodie and will certainly keep your thirst quenched when that first batch of warm weather arrives!

Royal Weisse is a traditional Bavarian-style Hefeweizen brewed with German hops and a combination of German wheat and malt. It boasts a beautiful orange hue, a fluffy white head and the typical cloudy appearance from the yeast. (The word ‘Hefeweizen’ means “wheat beer with yeast”.) On the nose you’ll find all the classic Hefeweizen aromas including banana, clove, citrus and even bubblegum. On the palate, expect a good amount of banana and citrus with a touch of yeast and a nice spicy finish. Refreshing and delicious, this medium-bodied brew is an easy going 5.6% abv and is rated 87 points on Beer Advocate and 89 points on Rate Beer!

Food Pairings:
When in Rome…. Enjoy some Royal Weisse with classic German fare like weisswurst and hot pretzels!
Get yer goat….cheese! Hefeweizens are a terrific pairing with creamy goat cheeses or herb boursins.
For that sweet tooth…. The banana and fruity flavors in Royal Weisse are a great complement to fruit tarts or anything with fresh lemon curd!
