A classic, Bavarian style Hefeweizen that is unfiltered, highly carbonated, with flavors and aromas of banana and clove. El Hefe is hazy golden in color, and utilizes Andechs Weiss yeast and noble hops for a traditional summertime brew. Prost!

The aroma is packed with hearty wheat. It is very enticing. The brew is foggy gold with a white head that leaves a few thin laces as you drink. Like the aroma, it has a brilliant wheat taste with a lemony background. It is well balanced and quite enjoyable. The palate gets stuck with a bite of carbonation that is immediately tempered by its oily coating. I could drink this all day and not get bored of it.

On tap at the brewery, and dispensed to a house pint glass displaying a cloudy, orangy gold color, with average persistence to the off white head foam, and modest lacing. The aroma was light grain, a touch of citrusy sweetness, banana candy/circus peanuts, and subtle spice. Whereas the banana was dominant in the nose, the clove was enhanced in the flavor. A little less than medium bodied, with decent carbonation, low hop bitterness, and a mild creaminess to the mouthfeel. Maybe a little more balance between the esters and phenols, and more effervescence is needed imo, but otherwise, a tasty, refreshing Weizen from this popular, local brewery.
