Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer won Gold Medal at the 22nd annual Great American Beer Fest. It is made with up to 50% wheat malt instead of all malted barley which lends a lighter note. lt is deep gold in color with a very low hop bitterness level and a dense head of white foam. This is a traditional unfiltered Bavarian wheat beer with aromatic hints of banana and clove. It is traditionally enjoyed as the summer beer of choice in Bavaria.

Few beer styles can refresh like a hefeweizen, and there are few places as colorful as Sedona, Arizona. I'm not in Sedona, but I suppose one out of two ain't bad. On to the beer:

Where's the head? Just a little foam forms on the pour and it's slowly fading away to a mere lace. Below is a beer with a banana peel yellow color that's cloudy, yet has visible bubbles running along the walls of the glass. The aroma is pleasing enough. It has the spice and phenols of a normal hefeweizen, a kiss of wheat malt, and a metallic twang. Not bad.

It's walking a fine line of being boring and being flavorful. Somewhat clovey, a little bit of nutmeg, and a sweet and sour yeasty aspect which I prefer to be just sweet. The beer is light in the mouth, a little chalky, with a gentle crispness.

For better or worse, Oak Creek Hefeweizen is a decent choice.

On tap at the brewery in Sedona. Poured a muddy yellow/orange/amber in color with a small, creamy, dense, white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer and around the edges. Cloudy. Sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of wheat, banana, vanilla, coconut, and some clove. Medium body. Slick then dry texture. Average to lively carbonation. Wheat, banana, clove, vanilla finish is dry. Overall, a really nice American hefe!

Pour is hazy yellow to amber. Nose of over-ripe banana and a bit of burned malt - clove comes in.

Entry is a bit spritzy, big clove flavor followed by banana. Soft feel from the oats. Nice hefeweizen flavors - hits german style weizen quite well. Mouthfeel waters out a just a bit as it moves through. Very refreshing beer which should play well in the summer heat of Arizona. Excellent flavor profile with a fine representation of the style.
