HAs anyone tried out a Hefeweizen from Two Palms? I bought a six pack for this evening and I'm wondering if I should have bothered.
While i'm at it anyone got any really good suggestions for decent Wheat Beer's? Nothing is going to top a good glass of Hoegaarden I know, but what alternatives are there?
My reading has told me that the two palms is more of the German style of Hefeweizen (hence my hesitation over it) I'm much more parcial to a nice white Belgian style to be honest. Think the best micro brew alternative I'm come across has to be Blue Moon, the Pyramid one isn't to bad and the Trader Jo's (isn't it Gordons?) is passable at a push.
So alternative micro brews or even imported Belgaian beers? Tried a number of German imports and never really found one to my liking.
the more I think about it I think I'll be stopping for an emergency alternative six pack at the store on the way home
definitely you can top hoe - all belgian wits and belgian-wit-style micros mentioned so far are great suggestions. blanche de chambly was always one of my favorites when i was in the throes of my wit phase ;)
bavarian wheat beer has more body...more chewiness than a wit style. my favorites in this style are Paulaner and Weihephstephaner (sp?)-- as mentioned Ayinger's weisse style is also quite tasty. but when i used to be able to find Maisels Weisse it was my all time favorite bavarian wheat.
good bavarian style american micros are few and far between in my (granted limited FL) experience. Bell's Oberon was really good a few years back, but i think they must've changed the recipe cause last time i had it it was less bavarian and more belgian wit. (we were able to get it while visiting indianapolis, never here in FL) so if you can get Oberon, you might really enjoy that one!
