Solid enough hefe. brokensail (16449) - 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. Ratman197 (14848) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 6, 2017
