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.

A citrus beer. Very tasty. Had a bit of a bitter taste but finishes smooth. I would drink this again.

Tap at Easy Tiger in Austin with commonshawn. Weird mug as consumption vessel. Definitely has the cloudy, unfiltered look typical of a hefeweizen. Aroma has banana qualities and a wheat backbone. Taste kind of falls short of expectations. Elements of banana cream pie. Silky, smooth on the palette. Yeast and cereal grain comes through. A little bit flat at the end. It’s fine but not really taking any chances. I’ll call it a slightly above average hedge hefe and leave it at that.

This is the best Hefeweizen I’ve ever found. I wish that it was available in a larger area.

Pour from a crowler thanks to Jason. Ultra cloudy orange with a 1 finger rocky head that fades slowly to a messy film. Aromas are creamy banana, clove, ginger, musty wheat, bubblegum, and light lemon. Tastes like banana bread and spices mostly. Smooth and creamy. Just a touch of sweetness. Great hefe.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
