4.46/5 rDev +20.9%
Saint Arnold Amarillo Hefeweizen (Icon Green) has a very thick, fluffy, off-white head, a hazy, quite bubbly, golden appearance, and good lacing left behind. The aroma is of faint sweetness, banana, and spice, and the flavor is of bread, spice, banana, clove, and a touch of tap water. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Saint Arnold Amarillo Hefeweizen (Icon Green) finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and extremely drinkable. Overall, this is a wonderful wheat beer!

On tap at Nobi Public House in Webster, Texas.
MMM. This is a really good hefe. Not as good as Live Oak, but unlike the previous two reviewers who know their stuff... I actually think I like this more than Weisse Versa from Karbach.
Now that I have it in bottles, I'm going to do a direct comparison soon. That should be fun. If they get it on tap at Gordon Street Tavern in Alvin, then I might do a straight side by side of all three.... as they always seem to have the other two on tap.
On my scale of deliciousness.... it ranks Really Delicious!

Thanks to the Champ for adding this beer so I can review it. Iv had a growler fill from Nobi, and now a four pack I picked up from Specs. Pours a cloudy yellow from the bottle with a finger of white foamy head, classic for a hefeweizen. The smell is somewhat familiar to the style with a slight hop forward scent. Taste is that of a hefe, some clove, banana, wheat and some citrus. Overall I thought this was a good interpretation of the style, I heard it was dry hopped and was expecting a little more out of the nose and taste from that, and I didn't get it. If this were packaged as an everyday seller @ $8 a six pack I'd buy it all summer. I have to agree with the review in front of me, Live Oak Hefe and Karbach Weisse Versa have this style pretty much locked down in this area.

The pour is a nice cloudy golden ale with a decent white head that was short lived with virtually no lacing down the glass.
The nose is sweet and fruity malt with a hint of the hops, vanilla, citrus and some bread.
The taste is a fruity semi sweet malt that has a crisp clean finish with a nice hop finish that is very well balanced.
The moutfeel is effervescent and light with a nice body that is just right for this beer style.
Overall this one is very good and very drinkable. I will definitely be drinking this one again.
