Growler from a friend split 3 ways. Very hazy light yellow with a small 3 finger head that faded fast. i was told carbonation on this growler was way weaker than it should have been. Lovely nose, earthy wheat with a light sweetness of brown sugar and grape. Taste is nice. lovely banana but not overwhelming. touch of sweetness and the mouthfeel was out of this world. Possibly my favorite Hefe ever.

Sampled at GABF 2014. Billed as the best hefeweizen I’ll ever have. Pours a cloudy orange color with a health white head on top. It looks the part. Aroma of banana, clove, light wheat malt, mild hops. Some lemon and citrus aromas. Flavor is mild. Somewhat watery. Banana and clove focused. Medium, creamy body with lively carbonation. I’ve had better. This is good but not great.

Tap. Hazy golden with small head. Mild here, but very well balanced. Light banana and clove. Tasty -- could pass for a German hefe.

I have searched so long for a US we fear that approaches some of the Germans or, that which Garrett does at Brooklyn Brewery. This is okay but nothing close to what I would love ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy yellow pour, a nice bit of bananas and cloves. Minor hops bite. A well executed hefe. Could have several

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2015 "one of the better, more flavorful american hefes i’ve had to date. big aroma and flavor of yeast, bananas, and clove. refreshing. light bodied but jam-packed with flavor. well done."

On tap at third base in austin. Pour is a hazy. Served with a wedge of lemon. Great hefe aroma. Im getting lemon but I’m sure thats from the lemon.... Wheaty, light. Flavor central. Wheat, grain, and light citrus. Wow. Great hefe. Highest rated hefe to date

On tap at Hay Merchant I'm Houston. Pours a cloudy straw hue with thin white head. Aromas of fruity yeast and spices. Taste is Crisp and smooth and not over powerful with some slight banana/fruity tones and a little spice. Finish is pretty smooth with some subtle fruity esters. Great balanced hef. One of the better hefs in my books! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
