On tap at Cypress Street pub (ATL).
Hazy light amber with a decent but rather short-lived head.
Flavor features more malt and Moderate banana. Otherwise, true to style with some yeasty and spicy flavors.

Out of Growler from The Filling Station in Nashville,TN (day of growler fill)

Bright golden yellow color with minimal quick dissolving head, aroma of slight bananas and wheat malt. Tastes pretty good, you can taste the banana and a little nuttiness. This is a pretty good Hefeweizen, but not a very good example of one. There are much better ones out there, but it is always good to try different breweries takes on an iconic style of brew.

served on-tap @Alcove, Tuscaloosa, AL, into a mason jar

Pours a pretty bright yellow color. It's hazy, of course. A nice, 1.5 fingers of sterling white head. It looks like a nice hefe.

The banana esters are quite strong in the nose of this beer. Banana and, like, hazelnut. Or something. Pretty nice. The spices are toned down relative to other hefeweizens. This reminds me of a blend of Paulaner and Weihenstephaner.

the flavor bears out that blended, in-between idea. It's a fruit-forward hefeweizen, but not overdone; not at the expense of balance. Lots of banana, wheat malt, hazelnut, and some slight notes of brown sugar. The cloves-laden spice bill takes a backseat, content to balance the esters and wheat flavor instead of demand equal attention. It's very good.

The mouthfeel is pretty full for the style: creamy but the carbonation isn't too sharp. It is filling, in a satisfying way.

Overall, this is one of the best American-brewed Hefeweizens I've had the pleasure of consuming. A wonderful beer for a humid Alabama summer. Straight to Ale continues to impress.
