On tap at the Whip In in Austin.

The beer pours a golden orange color with a white head. The aroma has quite a bit of wheat and yeast in it, as well as a little bit of banana. The flavor is similar. All three aspects of a hefeweizen are present - bananas, cloves and wheat. The banana and wheat are the most abundant, but the cloves are also present and add a little bit to the beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

I like this beer as much as Shock Top but less than Paulaner. The banana notes are a very nice touch and its brewed local so I get it a lot during the summer. Seems more filtered than Paulaner. Not as cloudy.

I'm a fan of Hefs. This is decent beer.

While it wasn't great it also wasn't bad. I wouldn't turn one down, but I probably wouldn't go out of my way to order it again either. The mouthfeel was a bit on the thin side, but the carbonation level was very pleasant. I think the thing that kept this beer from stepping up to the next level for me was that the citrus notes usually present in this style of beer, seemed to land a little more on the sour side than most Hefeweizens.

Refreshing and not overly sweet like some weizens. I like to drink it outside when its a warm fall afternoon

No Label Hefe Weizen has an unusually narrow, white head, a very hazy, yellow-gold appearance, with a descending gray-yellow cloud, some bubble streams, and minimal lacing. The aroma is of subdued banana, coriander, citrus, and wheat bread, and the flavor is of those elements and likewise subdued (one could say it is dull). Mouthfeel is light and watery, and No Label Hefe Weizen finishes semi dry and on the mundane side.
