Das Weizen

A fantastic hefeweizen that is, as Springdale boasts, well balanced.

More akin to the their Pearly Wit than A Beer Called Quest. And, rightfully so. Far more related to Pearly in beer style.

Hefeweizens are fun to pour, if even into a traditional pint glass. Maybe it's just their casual, laissez faire approach to being consumed. Like, when is it a bad time for a hefe? Pretty much never. A hefeweizen won't spoil a fish meal. It won't (really) take steak down a notch. Tacos? Sure.

Hefeweizens are versatile, in our opinion, and could even work with a tomato bisque sitting around a wood fire around the holidays. Perhaps it's the spice.

Springdale Beer Company Beer Description (on can)

This is a beer that requires a mastery of fermentation to produce the incredible balance of banana, clove and sweetness. We've enjoyed perfecting this style over the years and hope you appreciate the results.

Final thoughts on Das Weizen

We can see Springdale agonizing over getting Das Weizen just right. We're glad they did. We like it enough to put it on our list of best Oktoberfest beers even though it's not a Marzen or Festbier. We just like being in the spirit is all.
