Hazy golden color. Soapy, thin head. Yeasty citrus aroma. Light banana clove taste. Very refreshing. A little thin in the mouthfeel. Very indicative of the style. This is a very good Heffe but not the best that I have had. Certainly suitable for a benchmark.

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.
