It pours a pale, murky yellow color with a thick, fluffy white head. The aroma kind of off for a wheat beer but not bad, i picked up the typical wheat, banana, grass and lemon but it seemed kind of weak. Tastes kind of sour buth with lemon and grass and a hint of banana. Feels thinner than it should with not enough carbonation. Not bad, but could be better.

On tap at the Holy Grail Pub. Served as Franconia Hefeweizen.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a decent-sized white head. The aroma is full of wheat with some banana and spicy clove notes. The flavor is very creamy and is full of banana flavor. There is a little bit of clove in the flavor, but it hides behind the banana and wheat. Creamy, medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. A very nice Texas-brewed hefeweizen.

Had this on-tap at Texan Station restaurant inside the Gaylord Texan Resort, Grapevine, TX.

A: Beautiful golden hue that turned slightly amber under certain light. About a finger of white, foamy head.

S: Gorgeous lemon zest (fresh, not like from a cleaning product). Lemons, lemons, and more lemons, mixed with some yeast and and overall floral undertone.

T: Strong, radiant lemon flavor which gives it an upbeat, effervescent taste. Yeast stays in the background just to provide some backing.

M: Actively carbonated; tingles the tongue.

D: I could sip this all day. Too bad Franconia isn't around where I live (Maryland).

Served on tap at Il Cane Rosso in the Deep Ellum district of Dallas.
Appearance: straw colored, translucent, possessing a moderate head with medium lacing.
Nose: light notes of coriander and citrus and a distinct 'witbier' aroma.
Flavor: slightly grassy and somewhat tart with citrus and coriander once again.
Mouth-feel: pleasant, but not exceptional.
Drinkability: excellent.

Overall this is a very enjoyable brew, and is very true to the European wheat beer style. My sole lament is that this beer is currently only available in Texas and Oklahoma. I will have to return.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a great looking cloudy yellow with frothy white head. Aroma of banana and citrus fill the glass. Flavor of wheat with wonderful notes of banana and citrus. Mouth feel has a light, soft body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, a very satisfying beer!
