The Friday Beer: Widmer Hefeweizen

Here in the Great Pacific Northwest the days are getting longer, the temperature is on the rise and we are finally starting to see some sun. We’re not out of the iffy spring weather yet but soon we’ll be grilling on the BBQ, lounging on beaches and looking for pubs that have outside seating.

A hefeweizen is a great summer time beer and the Widmer Hefeweizen is one worth trying.

Like most pale wheat ales this Portland brewed beer is low on alcohol, has a clean flavor and is best served with a slice of lemon or orange.

What will you be drinking as we move into the final weekend of April?
