Summer has hit Portsmouth Brewery

The unofficial start of summer is Memorial Day (Thank you to all that are and have served!). Since the town pools are open now we have to get into the summer sprit. Wiezenhiemer is flowing with much rejoice from our sous chef Jon Hebert, because it is his favorite beer on the planet. Wiezenhiemer is an American wheat beer with a similar malt profile to a Hefe BUT we use our house yeast strain. So rather then a banana and clove esters that the German yeast strain give a Wiezenhiemer smells very clean with a hint of the wheat presence in the nose, slightly haziness from the wheat malt rather then the yeast strain, and has a clean ale front that fades to a slightly tart finish. Very, very quaffable! Bring on the 80 degrees weather! We are ready for it here at the Portsmouth Brewery.

  1. I will be stopping in tomorrow and i can't wait! Actually, i was going to say i won't be having a Weizenheimer because Hefe is not my style but after reading the description maybe i'll give it a try. i definitely want to try the scotch ale. so, happy Summer and thanks for keeping us hydrated.
