Another one bought at Pinkies San Angelo - saw the label for
"the world's oldest" but several seem to claim that title. So I decided to see how an ancient beer has stood up to the test of time.

Appearance - A beautiful amber/brown color. Very carbonated and a great mix of browns.

Smell - A tart almost crisp smell. Some may find it too tart, but excellent along with the taste

Taste - Wheaty with a mix of fruit. The main one I pick up is fresh peaches and a slice of pear. Now this isn't a fruity beer, but has a great fruit finish.

Mouthfeel - Carbonation Perfection!

Overall - a great evening beer that should be enjoyed often.

4.4/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Light golden wheat tan, monster foamy 3+ inch head with tons of lacing

Smell - Wheat, yeast, lemon, grassy, floral hops, orange, spices, banana and pear.

Taste - Very smooth wheat up front. Banana is a main flavor, along with some orange and lemon. Spices along with the hops are light, crisp and very well balanced with each wheaty, yeasty drink. No alcohol in the taste.

Mouthfeel - Light, refreshing and easy on whole mouth. Wheat and sweet lemon and banana coats tounge and palette leaving it refreshed and unscarred. Aftertaste is and floral.

Overall - Perfect example of the style, very easy to drink, smooth, tasty and light. Perfect for a summer drink, or with some meat feature dishes, this is bout as good as it gets for hefeweizen.
