Simplest possible hefe weissbier hell, quick beer ideal for summertime. Very lightly hopped, no bitterness and no hops flavor nor aroma present. Hops may be any of noble variety used in Germany: Hallertauer (Mittelfruh, Hersbrucker, Tradition), Tettnanger or Saaz.

I like it young, usually i get ~40 bottles of beer, this amount lasts for no longer than 7-8 weeks.
