on tap at ginger man in Austin...so stoked to try this one! pours hazy golden with medium sized white head. aroma is good...some banana, hint of clove..sort an underlying smokiness...yeasty and bready...good and clean. flavor is very very good...lots of yeast, bread, clove, spice, hint of bubble gum...my interpretation of this beer is that nothing stood out on its own, but it worked nicely in sort of a subtle manner. palate is very easy drinking and above average for the style. could drink this one all the time.

Blows all other hefeweizens out of the water. On tap at Ginger Man in Austin. Lots of different flavors in this beer poured into a pint glass and garnished with an orange slice. Very fresh and smooth with an odd (good) flavor that I wasn't used to in a Hefeweizen (smoky maybe?)

64 oz. growler served in a Hacker-Pschorr weiss glass. Huge, huge, huge thanks to cfh64 for the growler and hitting a long time top want. Thanks Brad!!
A: Pours a perfect hazy golden color with a little amber mixed into the body. A thick and fluffy pure white head forms on the pour and it recedes slowly to a thin film. Soapy lace is left down the glass.
S: Great hefe smells. Cracked wheat, some banana with clove and other great phenolic yeast sweetness. There is a nice citrus hop profile in the background as well. As it warms a touch of bubblegum starts to come out of the nose.
T: Nice fruity yeast flavors with a little clove. Some minimal citrus hops with a nice strong wheat backbone. There is a stronger flash of bubblegum-like yeast in the taste than the nose. The flavors mesh incredibly well and it just tastes great.
M: Medium to light bodied with a little bit of yeasty heft to it. The carbonation is just a little low, but it didn’t lose much in the growler.
O: This is a great American Hefe. I truly enjoyed this and the subtle hops gave this hefe another layer that made it very enjoyable.

Weird, I had it on tap at ginger man too. Nice strong banana and wheat aroma. Classic hefe taste but really really smooth. Excellent!

UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Tap at Home Slice in Austin. Pours a cloudy light orange color with almost no head. Can’t smell anything due to allergies but the taste is citrusy with notes of banana. Not what I expect from a hefe. Odd but unique in its own way. Solid beer but not my fave.
