Received this beer in an LIF from Hopsleeroy... Thanks again for the great opportunity!!
A-Pours a very nice looking pale golden yellow color with light orange highlights, mildly cloudy and a light white head that disappeared fairly quickly. This was bottled from a keg so I imagine the carbonation and possibly the suspended yeast would be slightly more substantial....
S-Not a whole lot here even though I let it warm up. Some mild yeastiness, grass, lemon, banana and clove.
T-Pretty good taste though fairly mild. More of the same as the smell with some sweet banana and lemony tartness at the forefront with tastes of clove, yeast, grain, and fresh cut grass hiding in the background.
M-Thinner than I expected and I think the carbonation took a hit with the hand bottling, but overall pleasant. Goes down very easy...
D-The taste is good and I'm not sure what the ABV is on this, but I could see sitting having one or four of these at a sitting out on a nice deck in the hot sun.
Overall a solid but not spectacular hefe. But all in all a very nice beer from the folks at Live Oak.
PS-I'd love to have this fresh on tap some day as I think it would rate slightly higher...
