brokensail (16053) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 20, 2010
A: The pour is somewhat light for a hefeweizen, tending toward a pale straw color with plenty of cloudiness and a white head. S: A bit of the traditional banana and clove esters, but not all that intense. The wheat comes through nicely, as does a hint of citrus. T: The yeasty esters are not as dominant as I normally like in my hefeweizens. The banana and clove are certainly there, but not they don’t steal the show. Orange peel and wheat round things out, with maybe just a bit of lemon. M: Somewhat light in body with a moderate level of carbonation. D: I can see why this beer is so popular, especially for people down in Texas. Quite easy to drink, light, and refreshing.

Growler sample. Poured hazy golden color with an small frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate wheat, citrus and spice aroma. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good beer that lost some live in transit.

I’m glad to have had the chance to try this one. Cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Bananas, lighter spices, yeast, and bread. I found the banana and spices to be more on the subtle side - which was fine with me.
