12oz longneck
A) Pours with a big head that settles quickly to a thin lacing on top. Hazy, straw colored body.
S) Clove. Banana. Yeasty
T) Light, wheat taste, a bit on the thin side. Lingering dry, graininess in the finish.
M) Crisp. Light body. Dry.
O) Looks good, smells good, but lacks some hefeweizen characteristics like the chewy, wheaty body. Drinks more like a golden ale.

Poured a slightly hazy color somewhere between the intersection of gold and amber. It's not orange, not the color of hay. It had about a half-finger of fizzy white head that quickly burned off and left almost no lacing. Some visible carbonation and oddly large bubbles. The aroma isn't terrible, some light hints of orange, spices, wheat, and banana all show up at one point or another. But it's pretty mild throughout. The taste is even more subdued than the aroma. It has those elements but they taste muted and watered down. The mouthfeel is equally watery. Not terrible, but not a great hefeweizen, either.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

11.2 fl oz brown glass bottle with okay label art and twist-off pressure cap acquired at a local cornerstore last week and served into a conical Pinthouse Pizza pint glass in me gaff in low altitude Austin, Texas. Reviewed live. Expectations are average given the brewery. 5.5% ABV per the label.

Served cold - at fridge temp. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: No bubble show forms as it's poured.

Pours a four finger wide head of white colour. A bit thinner than would be ideal. Subpar creaminess and frothiness. Inconsistent spotty lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head slowly recedes. Head retention is good - about 6 minutes.

Body colour is a translucent nontransparent murky copper of average vibrance. No floating yeast particles or sediment is visible. Appears well-carbonated.

Overall, it's a bit disconcerting. A good hefeweizen is always a hazy orange with good vibrance, and this is far from on the mark. It's a pleasant enough appearance in a general sense, but it's far from conventional.

Sm: Fresh wheat, a hint of stale orange peel, flaked wheat, starches, coriander, banana, and a hint of clove. It's not as yeasty as I'd like. It's an interesting aroma for the style and I'm looking forward to trying it. A pleasant if surprisingly dry aroma of average strength.

No alcohol or overt hop character is detectable. If anything I get a bit of hoppy fruitiness.

T: Flaked wheat, banana, clove, faint orange peel, fruity hop character, clean barley. It's surprisingly well balanced and has a nice taste. The starchiness from the aroma is luckily absent here. I like it.

Very cohesive, but not quite gestalt. Has nice complexity and subtlety for a hefeweizen. It's not real intricate or nuanced, however. Average depth, duration, and intensity of flavour.

Mf: Too dry and starchy. Also probably too coarse for a hefeweizen. Overcarbonated. Unrefreshing. Medium body. Decent presence on the palate.

Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, astringent, or harsh.

Overall, this texture complements the taste decently. It's not the juicy, refreshing, über-drinkable mouthfeel featured in the best hefeweizens, but it'll do.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable. It's an enjoyable hefeweizen but isn't without its flaws. I wouldn't buy it again - at least not here in Texas where there's a good market for hefeweizens, but it's not bad for the price point and you could do worse in terms of Mexican hefeweizens.

I forget when and where I discovered this series, but I was immediately struck by the label art. I hope that someone at Los Muertos is reading this and will CANsider putting these beers in CANs as the art would look fantastic in this format.

From the bottle: "Day of the Dead Beer[/]Cerveza De Los Muertos".

This label is a little disturbing. Is the groom trying to give the bride a hickey or is he a closet zombie, taking a bite from her neck? Either way, she seems to be enjoying herself with her head tilted,her right arm thrown back, her eyes closed and a gentle smile playing across her ruby lips. I guess that once you are dead and immortal anything goes. I will report back when my time comes.

I could see some sediment in the punt of the bottle so I really agitated it before I unscrewed the top. I got two fingers of soapy, tawny head that quickly fell away to a skim. Color was a cloudy yellowish-orange, like fresh-pressed apple cider (SRM = > 13, < 17). Nose smelled like banana bread - very banana-like but with a strong bready malt presence. Hefeweizen remains one of my least favorite styles, but I am trying very hard to give them a chance. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was definitely more banana than bready malt. I dislike banana, either artificially or as a byproduct of the yeast strain. It irks me because I know that a hefeweizen that is fermented under lager conditions will be clove-forward in its esters and I really dig that. This was pretty run-of-the-mill as far as I was concerned. Finish was semi-sweet, not cloying (thank Bob!) and drinkable, but one would be my limit. I am willing to revisit this if they begin to CAN our loving couple.
