Tree Hefeweizen and I get by...

Meterman: Finally science that proves that I will live longer than you.
Flavius: I doubt it; every morning I have a healthy coffee enema!
M: Up yours for sharing that info! In the June 2009 edition of
Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, it was shown than Japanese men with light to moderate alcohol consumption had a reduced risk of heart disease.
F: Heard it before..Those with heavy alcohol consumption (more than 300 gm ethanol per week) had a higher risk; this is nothing new. To get this much ethanol, you must drink over 22 regular 5%ABV beer a week. So about a flat of Blue.
M: But this reduced risk was enhanced when they had high amounts of social support. I have more friends than you do. What was also interesting was that women were excluded from this study. There were to few moderate to heavy drinkers (only 197 out of 25044 people surveyed or less than 1%.)

Tree Brewing Hefeweizen


Ratebeer 3.45 79th percentile
Beer Advocate B+

Taste +4

The aroma is very light, yet spicy. In the air you can notice grass, grains, cloves and banana. Up front was the most pleasant lemony grain which was followed closely by a creamy mouthfeel of banana bread. This was all transmitted with a good dose of carbonation.

Aftertaste +1

A slight banana and lemon crispness fades away dry and quick.

Alcohol Content 0 5.0%
Value +1

This is perhaps the best six pack Hefe I have tasted. Pick one up at your local BCLS.

Ingame Enhancement +1

I'm sure I played and it was good. Yes this was done to bump the score up.

Overall 7/10

If you are looking for something light and refreshing, but down the Corona and pick up on of these.
