On tap at the Phoenix Saloon in New Braunfels.

Served with a slice of lemon. The beer pours a hazy straw color with a white head. The aroma is full of banana and grain with some wheat thrown in. The flavor is heavy on the banana notes. There is some wheat and grain, but very little in the way of cloves. Medium, creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

A new beer from my home state and had to give it a taste.
It has mellow yellow color that seems too light and clear for a hefewizen but the taste has a great twist. Sweet that turns to a mellow smiley or woody backtaste. The aftertatse leaves a not great almost metal taste but with more flavors of the first taste. Not the best of its style but far from the worst

12 oz bottle courtesy of fthomasl pours a lightly hazed gold color with an uncharacteristically fast-fading white head that barely has time to leave a few smidges of lace.

Nose is pretty good - cloves, banana and bubblegum. Good, clasic hefe aroma.

Taste is a little thin, the sweet wheat body is not there. Has a nice yeast flavor but just not enough of it. Pretty watery. Drinkable with a few nice characteristics but overall a sub-par hefeweizen.

Color- mildly hazy light gold. Slight head.

Aroma- strong wheat and mild citrus.

Taste0 A hefe light! Starts more like a light wit beer than a German hefe, very mild citrus notes in the middle, finishing watery with a light lingering cleanness.

Sorry Pedernales, this just isn't up to par. I have nothing against your brewery. I used to fish on the Pedernales River between Fredericksburg and Johnson City when I was a kid. Please improve your beer, and I'll be a loyal follower.
