3Mag Brewer Aaron really wanted to explore this style for a while. Yeast, like life, can be controlled. But sometimes you have to set it free. This German strain was allowed to hit 75 degrees to crank up that creamy mouthfeel. Banana notes bringing expectations of a classic hefeweizen were mellowed by stepping down fermentation at terminal gravity, and then dry hopping cold for a couple days. The Australian aroma varietal Ella is basically a classic German hop that was crossed with Galaxy, adding floral and fruity aromatics to your typical hefeweizen hop. Drinking this ale is akin to hopping on your bike and exploring new terrain - you want to be intimately familiar with your ride so that you can 100% focus on experiencing your journey. It’s a classic style, but taken to a completely different level. So grab your bike, strap on your space helmet, and explore the unknown with us.
