On tap at Garland, TX. Pours hazy-golden with long lasting, fluffy, tall, white head. Aroma is of what malt, yeast and banana. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is of yeast, wheat malt, spices and strange fruit. Finish is long with strange aftertaste. I would not buy this brew again.

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.

At the Addison Flying Saucer. It features a modest head with a nice cloudy gold color. The aroma is modest, with some light fruity scent The body is soft and creamy, with vanilla fruitiness... could use more phenols for a good balance. Reminds me quite a bit of Flying Dog's wheat beer. Not bad, but not quite what I look for in a hefe.
