Frankenmuth’s Hefeweizen takes a somewhat different approach to this classic German-style beer — it puts the spice at the forefront, with much of the citrus and banana flavors coming towards the finish. It’s a nice, subtle change compared to most hefeweizens out there, though it does take away a bit from the balance.
