2nd Banana is a traditional German Hefeweizen. It was brewed using a mashing process our brewhouse is not set up for but necessary in order to produce this type of beer. We used 100% German malts and over 50% of this was Wheat malt. Together with the Hefeweizen yeast, we produced a well balanced and refreshing beer. The first sip delivers a pure banana flavor and aroma which is produced by the yeast during fermentation, followed by a mild clove flavored finish. These flavors and a slightly higher carbonation, giving this beer a high level of “Spritzigkeit”, makes it a perfectly refreshing summer drink.
No bananas were harmed during the making of this beer! Yes Second Banana is a silly
name for an underling, but Hefeweizen have a distinct banana-like flavor and aroma
that is 100% yeast derived. Much like Belgian beers, fermentation of these beers typically
happen at warmer temperatures that create fruity and spicy flavors from yeast called
esters and phenols. In many beer styles malt or hops take the lead, but in German Hef it is
the yeast’s time to shine!
