Yes, as Barry was quick to point out, it’s a mouthful. How about just Pinkus Hefe-Weizen?

This beer, certified organic by the USDA, would be an excellent mid-summer session brew. It pours hazy yellow, with a tall, bone-white head. The aroma is mild, with cloves, lemon, and a wheaty background. It tastes similar to how it smells and is, especially for a wheat beer, surprisingly refreshing. It’s crisp and clean and could be perfect with a big BBQ cookout. It has light body and no shortage of carbonation, though it’s slightly on the watery side.

Overall, the Pinkus Hefe-Weizen comes short of inspirational for somebody in the middle of brewing his own wheat beer, but there is definitely a place in my fridge for this beer. That it’s also an organic beer is a great bonus!

Come summertime, I would be a happy man with a six-pack of Pinkus Hefe’s with me poolside and the hot sun above.
