4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shaker pint draft at the Flying Saucer in Addison, Texas. This is a beer I have been looking to try for a very long time. The pour is a hazed yellow orange with a one inch white head. The aroma is grainy wheat, clove, and a soft banana. Nice fresh, typical Hefe nose. The taste is the wheat malt grain, mixed nicely with soft lemon, a bit of lemon rind, and then the yeast of soft banana and herbal clove. All flavors play together nicely. The palate is medium to light bodied, a silky unfiltered mouth feel, and a clean crisp clove finish. Really nice Hefeweizen, I am very happy to have tried it.

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.

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?)

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.
