Meena, our director of operations (aka our boss) hates bananas, like REALLY hates them. So what better way to call her out than to name our newest, limited release in honor of this quirk? "Breakfast Beer" just got a whole new bar to aim for...you're welcome.
Banana Pancakes Imperial Hefeweizen with Passion Fruit
ABV: TBD (trending to be north of 8%) IBU: 16
A run-of-the-mill hefeweizen would never be in the Karben4 playbook but a run-on sentence style name would be, and this idea has been baking for a while. We wanted to mimic a favorite breakfast item, so toasted barley and friends create the pancake portion and tricky tricks tricked the yeast into producing a truckload of banana aroma esters. No short stack is complete without fruit and syrup, and that is where the passionfruit and ABV-raising Belgian candi sugar enter the scene. Even if Meena hates bananas, the rest of us normal humans can enjoy this soul soothing potent potable.
