About the Brand
EOS hefeweizen is one of the 6 beers brewed year round by award winning Nebraska Brewing Company. Founded by Paul and Kim Kavulak, the Nebraska Brewing Company began as a hobby. Between 1992 and 2005, Paul dabbled in home brew, constantly trying to improve his brews.
In 2006, the Kavulaks decided that brewing would have to be Paul’s full time occupation if it was ever going to take off. At that fateful lunch, Paul took out his cell phone, called his boss and resigned. The pressure was on and in 2007, the Nebraska Brewing Company would open its brew pub.
Despite the struggles of the economic downturn, the Nebraska Brewing Company managed to grow and continues to expand to meet demand. Its current brewery opened in 2014 and was followed by a taproom for tasting and tours.
About the Beer
Those who read this blog regularly are likely familiar with my enjoyment of witbiers (see my reviews of Paulaner, Blanche de Bruxelles, Blue Moon and Shiner Hill Country Peach Wheat). When shopping for new beers to try, I was immediately drawn by the vibrant design of EOS’s can and the fact that it was a hefeweizen made it a no brainer to take home.
When opening the can, I was immediately met with a vaguely fruity smell. It has a opaque, pale yellow appearance that is fairly typical of a witbier. EOS’ smooth, creamy texture is what I expected, but I was somewhat surprised by its flavor.
EOS has some earthy tones and slightly hoppy notes. This interesting combination of flavors is pleasant to drink and the bitterness of the hops does not pose an issue in regards to drinkability.
The list of awards EOS has collected is truly remarkable. It’s not difficult to see why it has been successful. EOS is a highly drinkable witbier that brings a strong flavor profile to the table.
EOS is a very tasty beer. As a witbier fan, I was thoroughly impressed and would highly recommend anyone to try it.
