The New Amsterdamm in Dallas have this on tap and won't be rotating it out any time soon ordering to the barman. This one stood up to some extending tasting and definitely passes the drinkability test. A light golden colour that has the expected haze of a hefe. Aromas of vanilla and clove dominant. Less of the banana ester is present, there is a slight medicinal aroma but it is not off putting to me. Great flavour, yeast and malt - no hop but present. Quite sweet but not cloying.

Had my parents fill a growler on their trip to Austin.

A- Body is a light cloudy pale yellow hue. Pours with a large 2-3 finger foamy white head. Head eventually fades to about one finger and has great retention from there. Some lacing is left behind in the glass.

S- Nose is very good-and in line for a hefe. Soft cloves and a hint of banana come through as well as a hint of breadiness.

T- The flavor is soft and balanced all around. A presence of clove and the slightest hint of banana with a nice bready yeast backbone. The finish adds just a touch of hops and gets a little biscuty.

M- High tingly carbonation and yeasty body. The carbonation is somewhat seltzer-like. Body is nice but could be fuller and smoother.

D- This is a nice, mellow, balanced hefe. Reminds me a lot of Weihenstephaner-but doesn't do the trick as well for me. A good drinkable, sessionable beer that I would be ordering a lot if I lived in TX...but I don't think I will go out of my way to have it again here. We have local hefes that are just as nice. Still a great opportunity to try!
