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.

On the extremely light color side with good while foam. Bubblegum predominates in the aroma and flavor. Hints of banana and clove, too low for style. Wheat malt does not taste as good as German examples. Disappointing vs German hefes. Cannot compete.

Draft at Craft Pride, Austin. Nice bright hazy yellow color. Great yeast phenols, banana, clove, light spice. Just as it should be.
The flavor is that of the authentic German varieties. Nice chewy yeast texture with a spicy clove finish. Gosh, in a blind taste test I would say this was breweries in Germany. It’s nice to see an American brewer do a Hefeweizen this well. Very nicely done!

Powerfully estery, distinctive aroma of banana peel, cloves, nutmeg, sourdough, and an earthy, smoky, phenolic musk I don’t quite hate. The pour is a hazy, pastel yellow with a good off-white head, and the mouthfeel is silky and fizzy, with a medium-to-thin body. The taste is much better than the nose portends, with wonderful light bitterness, sweetness, and tartness that yield bright flavors of clove and banana cream pie up front, as well as an exceedingly refreshing, lingering citrusy zest for a dry finish. Very good and interesting overall.

Tap at Cedar Creek. Awesome hefe. Hazy yellow pour with a big white head. Wheaty and spicy. Slightly dry on the tongue. Excellent brew.

Pour from a crowler. Hazy pale yellow pour with a slight white head. Nice fruity and slightly spicy nose. Refreshing, crisp, yeasty in all the right spots. Crushable.

Keg @ Banger’s hazy gold with a creamy white head. Pretty straightforward hefe nose. Banana and clove bomb. Sweet and inviting. Taste is nicely balanced with a spritzy lemon finish. Light body, soft carbonation.

This was an extremely light Hefeweizen and was light and had that German hops that blended well and didn't overwhelm me
