From Smithworks Brewing Co;

 Our inaugural beer is Hefeweizen, an unfiltered natural wheat beer. This is a rich bubbly thirst quencher. The aromas and flavours are bready, spicy and fruity.  Hefeweizen will be available by the glass in our tasting room or by the bottle from our retail store.

Appearance | Cloudy yellow with a fizzy white head that quickly dissipates.

Smell | Bananas, citrusy, biscuits, and sweet.

Taste | Tartness, bananas, citrusy, biscuits, and hint of spices.

Aftertaste | Tart finish with lemon, bananas, and spices.

Overall | And the second Craft Brewery has popped up in Peterborough, ON (Hometown of The Brew Head & The Publican House is the other craft brewery).   Their flagship beer is a Hefeweizen and what a delicious treat it is!   It’s a unfiltered light-bodied beer that’s very enjoyable and sessionable.  It’s a great thirst-quenching beer that’s smooth and light, especially this time of the year.  It should be noted that Smithworks Brewing Co. is actually in the old Kawartha Lakes Brewery location.  Although it is in a industrial area, it’s not that far from Lansdowne Street.  Take a little detour and pick up some of this delicious treat for the Summer!

Food Pairing | Steak, Corn on the Cob, or Cold Pasta Salad
