Sunday Night Suds - Samuel Adams Harvest Hefe

This week's Sunday Night Suds looks at Samuel Adams Harvest Hefe.

Although this beer is part of the newest fall seasonal mix box from Samuel Adams, I found it in the mix your own six refrigerated section of the Albany Colonie Price Chopper.

[Ed note--an anonymous commenter tipped me that it was not part of the variety pack. After I found it in the mix your six I checked the Sam Adams website and it clicked through the seasonal variety pack link, but its not part of the variety pack. Post a comment if you find it in sixers].

This beer is not your average hefeweizen. It starts with the phenols and then adds some levels of complexity with cinnamon and nutmeg. I'm sure that I must have had cinnamon spiced beer before, but this beer is unusual as it tastes like the offspring of a box of redhots and cloves.

The beer has a lower level of alcohol (5.4% abv) and could probably be used as a session brew. It worked well with chicken marsala and would probably match with other mild chicken dishes.

The Samuel Adams Harvest Hefe is under the Kosher Supervision of the Star-K and has a Star-K certification mark on the bottle. To see what the experts on Beer Advocate think about this brew, please follow this link - (Keep in mind, this beer is so new, there are virtually no reviews as of today).

As always, please remember to drink responsibly and to never waste good beer unless there is no designated driver.

You are correct. The Sam Adams website has it as a click through under the Seasonal Variety Pack on their main page, but it is not actually appear in the pack. Thanks for the tip.
