If you want an archetype of the hefeweissen style, this is it. Pours a beautiful deep yellow gold color that leaves a nice two finger white head that slowly recedes and leaves plenty of lacing. Smells of wheat, banana, citrus. Taste is on point for a hefe; nicely balanced wheat, citrus, banana, and a light bitterness at the end. Everything about this beer in the taste department is done brilliantly. Mouthfeel is good, fairly light overall and easy to drink a pint or two. All in all, if you want a good hefe, this is the one to go to.

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.
