HANSEN HEFEWEIZEN®

Part of our Scientist Series!

Emil Christian Hansen isolated the first lager yeast strain which was introduced into the brewing world on November 12, 1883. The most famous of all wheat beers is the German Hefeweizen, known for producing one of our favorite esters, Isoamyl Acetate, which gives the distinct flavor and aroma of banana.
