Got in a growler thanks to Tofuspeedstar. Been wanting to try this for a while.

A-completely unfiltered. Opaque. Amber with a 2 finger fluffy white head. I've had other unfiltered hefe's but this one looked best from all I've tried. Lots of carbonation which was expected.

S-bananas, cloves, some pepper, citrus notes. Some wheat bread notes. Yeast tartness.

T-just like the smell. But better. More citrus than the smell, tad bit less banana. Nice clove and wheat flavor. Tart yeast balances it all out. Completely refreshing. Perfect beer

M-this is the only time I wish it was 90 degrees outside. The mouthfeel is perfect. So light and refreshing. Perfect carbonation. This in the middle of summer would be perfect.

O-my wallet is thankful this isn't available to me. I'd buy it year round. I drank a 32 oz growler way too quick. Sessionable as hell and just perfect. This may be the best beer to come out of Texas.

Serving type: growler

Served from a growler into a Newport Storm pint. Thanks channels321!

Appearance- Pretty typical unfiltered heffe. Cloudy yellow with thin white head.

Smell- Spicey. Coriander, banana, lemon, wheat bread, grassy floralness. Again fairly typical of the style.

Taste- Lemon, yeasty bread, funky earthyness, green apples. Very crisp and refreshing.

Mouthfeel- Nicely carbonated. Smooth, crisp, clean. Would be great on a hot summer day.

Overall- This is a damn fine Heffe. Not a fan of the style normally, but this sets the standards for now on.

Serving type: growler
