Pyramid week continues here at Pints and Steins, as earlier in the week we checked out Curve Ball Blonde Ale. Today’s brew to evaluate is the Seattle, Washington brewery’s hefeweizen. Haywire Hefeweizen is the company’s wheat beer offering.
As some might now, hefeweizen is an unfiltered wheat beer that is very popular hear in the Northwest. In fact, the most popular micro-brew from the Northwest is likely Widmer Hefeweizen, as I see that particular beer on tap no matter where I go in the country.
Getting back to Haywire, Pyramid advertises Haywire as
The standard by which all other wheat beers are judged. Our deliciously deranged American-Style Hefeweizen is an award winning take on this Bavarian classic. This refreshingly unfiltered wheat ale delivers a distinctively smooth flavor worth sharing with friends.
In my opinion, Haywire Hefeweizen is an amazing wheat beer that is not to be missed. This cloudy beer has enough flavor to light up any summer afternoon. The initial sip brings you a soft refreshing flavor. The aftertaste is a bit sweet and fruity, enough to be noticed but it’s not overwhelming.
Pyramid’s Haywire is a perfect summer beer and would go great with any type of meal featuring a white meat or even seafood.
