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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler... Cloudy, straw-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Beefy, fruity aroma with banana and bubble gum esters blended with clove and light smoke phenols. Medium to full-bodied and very creamy with tingly carbonation. Nice, fruity flavor offers banana, clove and gentle smoke. Fairly sweet, but not annoyingly so. Fruity, spicy finish. It’s a style of beer I really don’t like, but this one is pretty darn good. <b>Big-time thanks to GodOfThunder for sharing!</b>

Growler from JW77. Weird beer. Yeasty and lemony with an odd perfume note. Both in the aroma and flavor. I am wondering if this was oxidized? Not sure, but it wasn’t too good.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ Dan’s house. Cloudy, milky yellow orange appearance with a fluffy white head. Slightly spicy, very yeasty, bready, lemon citrusy, mild banana aroma. Bready, very yeasty, lemon-banana bread flavor that’s very smooth and very drinkable. Not as much banana and clove from the yeast and more a breadiness. Really an excellent brew but still not as good as its german counterparts.

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.
