This toasted brown ale from Slumbrew/Somerville Brewing Company exudes the flavors of fall and early winter. It’s all about toasted malts and grains such as chocolate malts and toasted buckwheat. Hoppy, nutty flavors round out the brew which is 7.5% ABV. “A bright hop finish from Cascade and Fuggles balance the toasted grain notes to create a new expression of autumn brown ales,” says Slumbrew.

Slumbrew never fails to surprise and delight as with this hoppy and interesting beer – Happy Sol Hefeweizen. Available in bottles on on draft, it’s flavorful with some hints of banana, crisp and cloudy in color. The beer is made with MA wildflower honey,orange peel, coriander and a lot of blood oranges, along with German wheat and two kinds of hops, Mt. Hood and Crystal.
Hefe refers to the yeast in this southern German style beer which is cloudy yet effervescent.
