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!

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.
