When the weather heats up, what you really need is a hefeweizen. Preferably accompanied by shade. But beer is the important part. Hefeweizens are hazy, unfiltered and highly carbonated. The fizzy beer features zesty flavors like banana, green apple and bubble gum. Just looking at one on a summer day is proven to lower your body temperature. Originating in Germany, the US has adopted the beer and there are many domestic hefeweizen brands worth your while. And pay no mind to the sediment at the bottom of your beer. It adds character.
