Hefeweizens originated in Bavaria and date back over 400 years. Hefe means yeast in German, Weizen means wheat. The unfiltered yeast remains in suspension, giving this style its signature cloudy color and a soft mouthfeel. Unlike traditional Bavarian hefeweizens, however, UFO Hefeweizen uses a northern German ale yeast to produce it’s signature “citrus-like” aroma.
