Butternuts Heinnieweisse Weissbier

It’s almost the weekend, which means that I get to celebrate my birthday (albeit a little late) with my friends. This involves a trip to Cherry Hill to visit the Flying Fish brewery and then off to the Pour House in Haddonfield. I took the day off today, so I have some time to try a few brews. I decided to review the beers I had in the Butternuts variety pack that I got. Butternuts is a can only brewery (as far as I can tell). There’s a certain stigma with canned beers, although it’s going away. The first brew I’m reviewing from them is the Weissbier

ABV: 4.9%

Style: Hefeweizen

Trivia: Butternuts is brewed on a converted dairy farm in the Butternut Mountains.

Random: The can is a little boring compared to the other offerings from Butternuts.

The beer presents with a one finger head that dissipates quickly. No lacing is left on the glass. The body is incredibly cloudy and orange with a lot of visible carbonation. On the nose, there is some banana and very subtle spice. There is also a hint of lemon present. On first sip, the lemon and banana come to the forefront with a lot of carbonation dancing on the tongue. But, there’s just not a lot to impress me with the beer. It’s lighter than a typical hefe, but not in a good way. It just needs a little more body and a little more flavor. The finish is quick with nothing to it. It’s pretty drinkable, but boring. But, you can’t taste any metal from the can, which is always a good thing. Not a bad beer, but nothing impressive. There are much better beers for the style.
