Beer God’s Notes
Original Tasting Notes: I’m not a fan of Hefe’s but this is nice and refreshing on a hot day.
I’ve been trying to branch out a little bit from my “bold beer” mentality. I love big beers, even on a hot day. But they’re not always the best beer for me in the moment. I end up being dehydrated and more thirsty. When I received Maui Brewing’s Mango Hefeweizen I was pretty excited. Not normally a style I would buy for myself, I’m glad I had a chance to try it.
The style itself, understanding that it’s not always my favorite came through in this beer. I was getting little notes of clove and banana throughout, along with a little bit of citrus on the tongue. I don’t know if I was getting mango specifically or just that citrus burst. Either way, this was an incredibly refreshing beer that tasted good on a hot day (and I bet would taste good after some yard work).
Maui has been putting out some really awesome and unique beers lately, and I’m happy to be a part of that world. I hope that they keep innovating like this and come out with new and different flavors for old classics.
