Michigan has finally hit one of my favorite times of year: the thaw after months of frozen air and frost covered cars. Heat has returned and with it comes the time to switch to the classic spring beer styles. We are heading away from the dark and heavy comfort of porters and stouts into the lighter drinks, and one my personal favorites. Wheat beer has a few different variations ranging from the German origin Hefeweizen to the Dutch Witbier. Many common wheat beer varieties have hints of fruit flavor to them, a nod to the season.
Here at Eternity our take on the wheat beer style is called ‘Covenant Wheat’. It’s a crisp beer with banana and clove flavors shining through. It was a crowd (and staff) favorite the first time around so we just had to bring it back. Smells like spring.
