A: This beer is a cloudy straw color with a foamy white head

S: The beer smells great. Bananas mostly

T: Sweet banana flavor. Other fruits as well. Maybe a little nuttiness, too.

M: Mild alcohol burn. Light creaminess.

D: Off the charts

This beer is a great example of the style. I could drink this stuff all day.

Pours a cloudy yellow with shades of gold. Forms a very nice head which very slowly dissipates leaving some very nice lacing.

Very nice mixture of wheat and citrus, lemon stands out.

Well balanced flavours of wheat and lemon. Incredibly easy drinking and flavourful.

Smooth bordering on creamy, medium carbonation with a very smooth finish.

Very nice for a lighter beer, complex while very enjoyable and refreshing.

12 oz bottle, recommended from the Spec's in Bee Cave, thanks!

Cloudy dark yellow, shading into orange, amazing head on this beer.

Malt, lemon, and a hint of clove on the nose. I really like aroma of this beer.

Lemon, clove, spices in the mouth. It tastes as good as it smells.

I'm a little spoiled, since I live in Austin, and we can get Live Oak Hefeweizen on tap in a lot of places here. So, I was a little hesitant to buy this one, but I wanted a hefe, and the guy at Specs said this is the best they have. I still like Live Oak better, but just by a hair. I have seen a number of reviews that rated this beer down a bit, and I would say that something you might do is let it warm up a bit. I started this one at fridge temp, and wasn't really that impressed at first. However, I was called away for a bit, and when I came back the beer had warmed up to probably upper forties, or even higher in temp, and it was AMAZING. It really opened up and a lot of flavor came out.
