One of my all time fav's and I never got to set up a review til now. Pours a nice yellow straw color, cloudy the way a Hefe should be. Aroma is a nice Banana and citrus, some say hints of cloves but I usually don't pick much of that up. Taste is flavorful, thirst quenching and echoes the aroma. Mouthfeel is thin but fits the style quite comfortably. Perfect for enjoying on a hot texas day!

glad i got the chance to try this without having to trade for it. looks like your typical hefeweizen. aroma was muted, some graininess. taste and mouthfeel were your typical hefeweizen. nice body for the abv. i just don't get why this is rated so much higher than others of the style, it's just a standard hefeweizen, any fresh one of the style would compare.
many thanks to whoever shared this growler at the alewatcher/oreo tasting.

This growler was shared at Alewatcher and Oreo's birthday bash. It poured a hazy, murky vibrant gold in color with a white lacing around the glass. It looked great. The aromas, oh man! It wreaks of sweet creamed corn. I sure as hell didn't expect that to happen. It's awkward and obnoxious. I expected yeast, cloves, bananas but got none of that. The flavors too, of overly sweet creamed corn. I didn't think that was possible. It's like a crazy corn casserole in a glass. It drinks medium in body and leaves the sweet grainy flavor behind. How are people saying that this is on the level of Weihenstephaner? Dear god they aren't even in the same league, let alone comparable. I'm extremely thankful for getting to try this one but man was it a disappointment.

Ahh, review #600. It's been a long time coming... nearly 6 years. I always get hung up on 'milestone' reviews, and take way too long to put 'em up. Not sure why. In any case, big, big thanks to BA johnsaulrubio for hooking me up with one of my oldest wants. We opened this fine growler at a tasting of immature, yet experienced BAs and it did rather well. I personally love a good Hefe, so perhaps I'm biased...

A. Pretty standard here, hazy semi-filtered gold with a fizzy white head that sadly doesn't stick around like it could. Fades faster than I'd like and leaves only a bit of lacing. Fizzy.

S. Now here we go... this is excellent. Heavy on clove, with sour banana, tight and complementary, nothing wrong here at all. Classic Hefe, characterful, slightly doughy. Just great stuff. Only thing that could help the nose would be more of it.

T. Runs towards the easier, more sessionable side of things... all the classic required flavors (banana, grain, light sweetness, clove-spice) are here and it's extremely clean, but seems lighter than some of the best German examples.... no surprises otherwise here, very quenching, moreish, refreshing.

M / D Excellent carbonation, slightly dry and banana finish, zips along to Total Refreshment. I can see why this would make sense coming from the wicked hot climes of Texas. Still... it's not as good as Weihenstephaner to me. But it is darn good.

Live Oak Hefeweizen is one of the best American versions of the style I've had, second only to Dancing Man, which is less to style than this. An exceptional beer; Live Oak has this classic style nailed. If you live close enough to get this on a regular basis, you are in luck.

Onwards - to review 700 and beyond!

Huge thanks to biglobo8971 for sharing this one. Poured from a growler into a snifter.

A- Hazy yellow straw appearance, ½ finger to one finger off white head, well carbonated, nice lacing and retention.
S- Awesome aroma, the smell is amazing, banana, cloves, hints of citrus, lemn zest, very well balanced, hints of breadiness, just smooth and refreshing.
T- Taste as it smells, banana, cloves, lemon and orange aromas, slight citrus, really smooth and delicious taste to this beer, hints of spice, nice balanced sweetness to it, perfect for a hot summer day, slightly dry on the aftertaste.
M- Medium to light mouthfeel, well carbonated, really smooth and crisp.
O- Very impressed by this beer, amazing Hefe, one of the best of its style. Smooth and refreshing, perfect for a hot summer day, really easy drinkability.

appearance
pours a deep golden yellow topped by a fluffy white head measuring between a finger and a finger and a half with strong retention.

smell
smells better than any hefe I’ve ever snuffed. Notes of ripened bananas, sweet vanilla and far from overpowering clove scents with hints of citrus, & nutmeg too. Very complex & inviting, and very pleasant.

taste
Delicate and flavourful- easy to drink a lot of! It tastes like it smells and the head lends a smooth creaminess. Bananas are dominant and other citrus flavors present with a nice almost spicy clove after taste.

mouthfeel
very smooth, medium bodied with perfect carbonation

overall
hands down my favorite hefe

Big fan of Live Oak beers and this one is definitely a favorite. Great to drink anywhere with hot summer temperatures- not to high in ABV but still flavorful and easy to drink. I highly recommend anyone who is in Austin or visiting to go on their Brewery tour

A huge thanks to my good buddy Curtis for sending me this growler. Shared with some hooligans last weekend.

The appearance is a hazy, straw yellow color with a thick, white head that leaves ample lacing on the glass. The head hangs out indefinitely. So far, so good.

The aroma brings a good bit of banana and wheat.

This beer is extremely well balanced, and goes down effortlessly. What a perfect warm weather beer. The feel is smooth, light (without seeming thin), and creamy. Without question, this is the best American brewed hefeweizen I have ever had. Superb.

64oz. Growler provided by Huhzubendah, thanks babydoll!

I'm not the biggest wheat beer fan, but who the fuck does not enjoy a quality Hefeweizen on a warm day?

Poured into a Stone pairing glass and I can already smell it. Pours a traditional cloudy yellow with a bright white and creamy head. Smells wonderful and it full of banana, citrus, clove, and spice. Really fresh and pungent. Taste is so refreshing and bright. Full of flavor and this is incredibly balanced. Great carbonation with some creaminess.

I'm always a little skeptical of such highly hyped beers, but this truly lives up to the hype. About as good as a Hefeweizen can get.

Growler poured into a tall weizen glass. Thanks Rubio for the excellent trade. Unfortunately the first growler sent my way leaked and Rubio promptly replaced it. Thanks again.

Cloudy golden hay colored with a very creamy moderate sized white head. The head retention is average, and lacing just meh. Strange.

Strong banana, clove-spice, light sweetness and some refreshing tartness in the aroma; pretty standard for the style but delightful.

Taste is strong on banana, but with a rather empty middle and finish. Not very bright in my opinion --- feels a little watered down, but still very estery. The finish is clean but I think that the aftertaste could've been longer and richer. The carbonation and the body are dead on, and overall a very good hefeweizen.

Appearance-It's a hefeweizen. Yellowish/Orange hazy body with a foamy 1 finger head that leaves no lacing. Lots of unfiltered goodness floating.

Smell-Banana and Clove. Some breadiness as well along with some citrus. Pretty standard Hefe aroma with a little more balance and more pronounced.

Taste-Alot more citrus then expected, which I love. I get the Banana, Clove and Wheat but I a very nice lemony citrus note to it as well.

Mouthfeel-Good amount of carbonation, Medium bodied. Pretty smooth and well balanced. Nice creamy mouthfeel.

Overall-The ultimate summer session beer in my opnion. Extremely refreshing, extremely smooth, and tastes amazing. Even as it may warm in the hot summer sun it will still taste great...Only problem is you can't get this in bottles/cans. Drink this beer if you have the chance.

Huge thanks to xpimptastikx for this one. As a lover of wheat beers, I've wanted to get around to this one for a long time. Poured from a 64oz. growler into a Harpoon Weizen glass.

A: Gentle pour yields a .5 finger foamy white head with little retention that dissipates into a thin film atop a cloudy, lemon yellow beer. Lacing is stringy and spotty with little stick. Average and the cloudiness is forgiven due to the style.

S: Nose is subtle but refreshing. Lemon zest, sweetness from the yeast, some banana, and creamy cane sugar. Not overly rich or impressive but very balanced.

T: Opens lemon zest, various sweet and very mildly tart spiciness. Some banana notes along with a smooth, creamy, yeasty malt backbone. Citrus towards the end with some more sweet spiciness. Finish is yeasty and slightly floral with a grainy and citrus tart aftertaste. Simple but incredibly quenching and refreshing.

M: Light bodied and moderately carbonated. Smooth and slightly watery, but very quenching and satisfying. Goes down with some bubbles. Finish is accented but with a clean, crisp, quick aftertaste. Perfect.

O: Live Oak Hefeweizen isn't overly impressive in terms of appearance or smell but its spot on taste and incredible mouthfeel make it the perfect session beer on a hot summer day. Incredibly drinkable, this might be the one time I thought a 64oz. growler wasn't enough.

A - golden cloud haze, active carbonation 1 finger of fluffy head that receded pretty quickly leaving a thin ring around the edges...it's the color that stands out the most so far brilliant unfiltered awesomeness. This beer can be brought to optimal life with a good swirl. Doesn't have much lacing

A - helpful earthy spices, light floral notes and yes of course the amazing banana notes, it's smells amazing but is very subtle in a appropriate way that doesn't try to overpower to create a false and unnatural presence.

T - light touches of the similar earthy spices, hints of honey and vanilla then moving into a big wheat presence in the middle with a solid yeasty taste and then the banana bread is what I'm getting, a bit more sweet then expected but very refreshing. Ridiculously smooth

M - absolute epitome of creamy, full bodied and a smoothness that a lot of other hefs attempt. The carbonation is low and not prickly
on the palate. Very easy to put these away.

O - amazing hefe and always a must when the opportunity presents itself. From the appearance to the mouthfeel and in between this beer is simply awesome and should be consumed by all.

Had this many, many times... figured that I should review it. Had this in a shaker pint during trivia at the Austin Flying Saucer. This was one of the better appearances the beer has had for me, IMO.

The beer is always a cloudy, hazy gold. The cap is a fluffy, pale white. However, the head died down quickly and needed to be roused to stay alive. Dirty Saucer glasses or not a great head? Probably some of both.

The nose is banananananana. It's not artificial or overpowering, but it's definitely dominant and long lasting. There might be some balancing spice in there or something, but let's just focus on the fantastic banana.

The taste is well balanced and complex. The mouthfeel is shockingly thick and creamy... but it still goes down quickly. The taste is somewhat banana, but it slowly melds into a sweet vanilla touch that wonderfully lingers. Dry and sweet at the same time. Viscous, but dry and drinkable. This beer is balance and a wonderful session in my glass. I'm never sad that I've ordered one of these... and I order it quite a bit. The Pride of Austin!

Poured into a pint glass at Draught house in Austin, TX

Appearance: It pours a cloudy yellow/orange with a fingers worth of fluffy white head. I was surprised the head retention was not what I expected, but that could have been because the beer was a little too cold. Never the less this is what I expect a Hefeweissen to look like.

Aroma: Very proportionate amounts of banana, clove, a little bit of bread, and a touch of citrus come wafting out of the glass on my first sniff. Some hefeweissens can be too heavy on these aromas, but this one is not.

Taste: Banana, spicy notes and a tinge of tartness from the wheat. Very balanced, no one taste stands out in an over powering way, they all work with each other, complimenting each other.

Mouthfeel: Refreshing. This is the perfect summer beer. It’s extremely bubbly and it tickles and dances on your tongue.

Overall: This is without a doubt a world class hefeweissen and the best I have ever had. I lived in Germany for 16 weeks and had my fair share of hefeweissens and this is the best one I have ever had, rivaled only be Weihenstephan, but they had a little bit of a head start on Live Oak. It’s a shame they don’t bottle so more people could experience this beer. I'm thankful to live in Texas and can enjoy this beer whenever I want.

414th review on BA
Growler to Weizen

HUGE!!! Thanks to Poonamibaxter for this.

App- Soft hazy yellow with a two finger head and not a lot of cling. Faded from dark to light in the glass.

Smell- Typical hefe smell without being overdone or too sweet, well balanced. Bananas, yeast and spice.

Taste- It's one of the most balanced hefe's I have had and I dont like hefs except for the Hefe-Weiss. This was bliss in a glass. Banana, spice and a little bit of grainy/wheat. Didn't over compensate any single flavor or ingredient.

Mouth- Medium bodied but almost a light bodied hefe. High carbed even after being in the growler for so long. Was soft and refreshing.

Drink- Not as spicy and as big as the Hefe-weiss but this was so tasty. Fresh, crisp, refreshing and tasty. I wanted to drink all 64oz of this but that would be bad Advocacy. The BA freinds need to share this.

Poured from a 64 ounce growler - thanks poonamibaxter!

A: Hazy light orange-copper, creamy white head, noticeable carbonation. Wow this held up extremely well in the growler!

S: Banana, hay, bubblegum, wheat, peach and some very faint orange notes. The nose isn't overwhelming but there is nothing you need to really search for.

T: Literally, this is damn near perfect. Banana notes explode throughout the palate with some white peach, strawberry and a twist of lemon. Banana and bubblegum are definitely the focus of the taste but it's done so well, it's pretty ridiculous. Some clove and spice in the finish to provide that final level of complexity.

M: Bubbly, a bit thick for the style (I love it) and extremely creamy mouth feel overall. Fantastic.

Honestly, one of the best domestically brewed Hefeweizens you will find in the country. It's a shame this is a Texas-only beer but it is worth every bit of effort to seek it out. Would LOVE another growler, this is going to go quickly...

1l Growler from gawnphishin...Thanks Reed!

A - Hazy yellow with a white fluffy head. No/minimal lacing. Evident carbonation.
S - Banana bread is number 1 here. Other slight fruity elements, perhaps some yeastiness. Very clean, pleasant scent.
T - Bananas, very slight hint of clove. Some graininess that I can only assume is from wheat. A bit weaker taste than smell, but it is very clean and very pleasant. Really pleasant yeasty element, with just a slight hint of citrusy hoppiness coming through.
MF - Pretty thin. A slightly creamy/oiliness but not much.
O - Very nice, pleasant beer. Great session beer (well, almost) - I easily drank a 32oz growler of this and wanted more. Super easy drinker, very pleasant beer, especially for someone who doesn't want to get wasted two nights before a race. I really appreciate the ABV of this one, I feel a lot less bad drinking it ;)

A. Pours orange and yellow haze with a white foamy head.

T. Banana, wheat, some slight spiciness, and some nice bubblegum. Some lemon is in there, too.

M. Fairly thin with nice level of carbonation.

D. Very drinkable, but I wish it was a bit more robust.

Growler received in a trade with atxdelivery. Thanks a lot Josh! Poured into a heavy mug.

Appearance: Live Oak HefeWeizen pours a very hazy straw color with about a finger of egg-shell white head. Lacing and retention are pretty decent. Decent looking beer, nothing great.

Smell: Lots of overripe banana scents show up immediately. After it warms a bit of citrus comes out, as well as some fruity esters.

Taste: A bunch of citrus, overripe banana, and esters all show up pretty predominantly. Also, I get just a touch of floral character on the back end as well, which is a bit surprising for a hefe. Not at all unwelcome though, it really adds another layer onto the flavor. This is a very tasty hefeweizen.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: This beer feels pretty creamy in the mouth, and is just a touch heavier bodied than I expected, actually. Excellent. And as for drinkability, I'm having a hard time keeping this beer in the glass. Seems like every time I look at my mug it's almost empty. I will easily finish off a 64oz growler by myself, and wouldn't mind some more in all honesty.

Many, many thanks to gawnphishin for sending a growler of this elixir my way.

A - The beer pours a beautiful pale golden color with a creamy 2 finger white head with decent retention. This beer is haaaazzzyyy, nearly opaque. A moderate amount of lacing remains on the glass.

S - Wow. These aromas are heavenly. Deep aromas of banana with other hints of light fruitiness. Notes of wheat and grain become present as the beer warms. The smells are VERY inviting.

T - The tastes are akin to the smells. Bananas and cloves are strong up front. Very smooth and well balanced! Mild notes of vanilla seem to come through on the finish. Slight grain sweetness. This beer is undeniably one of the tastiest beers that I've ever had.

M - Light/medium smooth body with a well-balanced carbonation. Very clean feel.

D - I honestly don't see how the drinkability can get anything other than a 5. I love that the ABV in this beer is low. The beer just tastes so good, my glass is empty before I know it.

The only thing that I'd do differently next time is to drink this beer in the warmer months of spring/summer.

BIG thanks to Monsone for busting out this growler at the BA Meetup @ Goose Island yesterday...

Let me just get this out of the way early: This is EASILY the best HefeWeizen I've ever had.

Now on to the review...

Appearance was outstanding - mysteriously murky & cloudy golden straw color (leaning a bit towards orange). Dense layer of foamy white head that left a spotty ring of lacing around the glass.

Aroma was great - some banana and wheat - just as you'd expect, but with a great deal of nuance.

Flavor was spectacular - more of the banana and smooth wheat, but also a soft, tangy twinge of sweet citrus came through that put this one into another stratosphere for me... gone was the bite you sometimes get from a hefe - this is just extremely well balanced and super smooth.

Carbonation is there (as evidenced by the nice layer of head I got on my pour), but the mouthfeel is amazingly silky. Again - another outstanding quality of this beer.

I could drink this stuff all day and am already dreaming of the next time I'll get to try it, so hopefully I can get my hands on a growler sometime soon here...

Thanks to Monsone for importing and sharing the growler! Whip In ftw :)

Huge banana, bubblebum and lemon notes right off the bat. Very aromatic and fresh. Wheaty in the best way, with a minor spicy clove element in there too.

Hazy orange body, fluffy head with some retention. Attractive color, slightly less foam due to the growler, but it still looks nice.

Flavor is also very wheaty, simple with very estery banana and bubblegum notes again. Slightly sweet with a tangy edge. Sweetness fades quickly into a dry aftertaste. Lingering notes of banana, bubblegum again, and clean wheat flavors. Creamy feel with an ethereal lightness. Simple and classic. Fresher than most any import, and well crafted. Perfect for warmer weather. Nicely done.

Big thanks to xpimptastikx for this one. Poured into a weizen glass.

3.0 A: Hazed darker yellow color. Two plus fingers of frothy white head with average retention and not really any lacing.

5.0 S: Wow, really wonderful. Tons of bubblegum and clove with banana oil undertones. Appropriate level of yeastiness and a neutral wheat flavor. Pretty much perfect proportions of the major components with a lot of power behind it. Elegant, bold and robust, this is about as good as it gets.

4.0 T: The taste is also very good, but only about one tenth as powerful as the nose. Bubblegum and clove are once again my most powerful with banana second chair again. Surprisingly dry. Neutral wheat. No-off flavors and well brewed, but the taste could use a good three of four fold amplification.

3.0 M: The mouthfeel is a good deal disappointing. Medium body, but lacking the creaminess that the best hefes have to offer. Also, there's plenty of carbonation, but is fails to liven up the mouthfeel. Instead of spritzy, it's a "dead" carbonation.

3.5 D: Absolutely amazing taste, pretty good taste, and otherwise sub-par. Still, I'd have no problem drinking this on a regular basis. A couple glasses today did the trick and a couple more tomorrow.

Eternal gratitude to gawnphishin for sending this wale along.

Poured from a growler into my Ayinger weizenbier glass.

A lovely gradient of golden poppy to golden yellow is cloudy thorughout and capped by a tall fluffy snow white peak which recedes to a lasting slick, fed by slow persistent carbonation. Nice sandy lacing.

Big fresh bready wheat and a hint of lemon zest in the nose - more phenols are present than esters (in the form of clove), though there is a hint of plantain in there as well. Intoxicating.

Light wheat-based tartness initially, followed by banana nut bread mid-palate. An almost floral element comes out as you approach the finish reminding me of chamomile or maybe a delicate white tea. A clean (Pils?) malt note balances out the wheat and leads into a pillowy yet crisp medium-dry finish.

Creamy, lightly effervescent, but a touch light-bodied - the emphasis is on drinkability over body I think (though the structure is still excellent).

Not quite on par with the best of the best German examples (but hey, they've been producing the style for hundreds of years), this is far and away the best domestic version I've sampled - and many will prefer it's balance of phenols in the aroma and esters in the flavor. The perfect warm-weather beer, this.

Hazy orange in color, thin head, retention was ok. Very hazy just reiterate the haziness.

Smells of orange, banana peel and malts. Has a sweet but clean aroma very pleasant.

Light in flavor but quite complex, orange and orange peel flavors abound, good bitter hop character, balances nicely with the sweetness, great wheat sweetness on finish. 

Light in body, crisp and light carbonation is nice, very drinkable and in the summer I'll by buying this by the growler!
