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?
