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.

Bottle to Weizen

Thanks to Shoky01 for this

App- a very very light yellow. Not sure how to classify color? A good 2 finger head with a pure white color. No cling or lace. Very hazy and cloudy.

Smell-  Its a hefe but what the hell is added? Grass? Beef jerky? Its a small wheat, lemony, peppery aroma just doesnt flow well. Lacks balance and layers.

Taste-  I kinda get the classification as a hefe. Lots of hefe fake bubblegum, pepper and malts. Behind that its a grassy, beef jerky type of flavor. Not sure why so average but had some highlights with a little sweetness.

Mouth- A lighter body with a soft carbonation. The beefy grassy flavor hangs around for a bit.

Drink- I appreciate new beers but didnt like this. Finished it. But didnt like it.

The label depicts a striking woman in heels & is cleverly named "El Hefe Weizen" (Jefe means boss in Spanish). A nod to both the style of beer & the true "boss" in many households. El Hefe pours a bright gold color & is surprisingly clear for a hefeweizen. I expect a hefe to be a lil more cloudy/hazy. It smells as expected however. Very fresh with hints of clove and banana. The taste is crisp & mirrors the smell but only adds in a small amount of citrus (some might want to fruit it). The body of the beer is really thin compared to a Live Oak Hefe but I kind of like that its different. What fun would it be if every beer tasted the same?
