Beers of the World – UFO Hefeweizen

Today’s Beer of the World is UFO Hefeweizen by Harpoon Brewery out of Boston, Massachusetts.  You can find this beer at the Cabana Bar and Beach Club at the Walt Disney World Dolphin.

The website for the Harpoon Brewery is a pretty standard website, with things like info on their various beers, a store, a listing of special events.  They have a sub-domain set up for their  UFO branded offerings, which includes all of their unfiltered beers.

Here’s what they have to say about the hefeweizen:

UFO has a soft mouthfeel and a refreshing, light body.  The wheat malts and subtle hopping give the beer a mild, delicate flavor.  UFO has a clean finish.  Unlike some imported hefeweizens, UFO does not have the spicy, tropical flavors typical of European-brewed style.

UFO Hefeweizen has a higher average ABV of 5.10%.  The folks at Beer Advocate like this beer pretty well, giving it a score of 83 which qualifies it for a rating of “Good.”   The 576 readers who reviewed this beer gave it an aggregate score of a little less, 78, which qualifies it for an “Average” rating.   If you’re a hefeweizen fan, it’s a great choice at the Cabana Bar and Beach Club on a hot summer’s day.
