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.

Pint at Easy Tiger. Super cloudy yellowish beer, certainly looks like a hefeweizen. Aroma is grainy and yeasty. Adequate banana notes with a gentle spiciness and citrus. Palate is medium. Flavor is full and refreshing. Lemony citrus and banana up front with a solid grainy malt bill. Clean and yeasty finish. Good on this unseasonably warm night.

This is my all-time favorite draft beer to have when I am out in an Austin venue that serves it. The flavors I detect: (home-made)bread, citrus, herbs, earthy, banana, clove, vanilla, woody.

Almost hazy golden pour. Small amount of white head. Not much lacing. Aroma is dishwater and dirty dishes. Taste is the same with a slight bit of sour lemon.

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
