Picked up a growler at the brewery.
A: Cloudy yellowish orange with minimal head and no lacing.
S: Strong smell of bananas and wheat. Some clove. Fruity and sweet.
T: Tastes like husky wheat with a compliment of sweet banana. Flavorful and refreshing.
M: Not as heavy as it looks. Light and bubbly. I would like to see the body a little more mellow.
D: Very very drinkable. Particularly on a hot summer day a sixer of this can go quickly. One of my favorite offerings from the hometown brewery.
Serving type: growler

Thanx to RocketCityVol.
Disclaimer: at first I'll have to admit that I'm not a true hefeweizen fan, but after this, I could really jump on that bandwagon really quick. Here goes.
Into a weizen glass.
A: hazy golden orange colored body with a thick two fingered white foamy head that dies within about a minute, some light foamy lacing graces the sides of the glass adequately
S: almost the best aroma combination of a clove to coriander to banana esters - sweet to spiciness - wow, I'm enthralled
T: sweet to spicy through the cloves and coriander to the banana esters; the aftertaste is pretty much exactly the same and just as good; nice quick dry spicy sweet finish
M: light to medium, mostly sessionable for the most part, carbonation finishes just right for a hefeweizen as there's a harsh component and a smooth component that balances just right
O: wow, where the heck did this come from? I had and still have a long time want of having their Sue and maybe someday I will, but this is absolutely awesome and will certainly have this again as its very good for its style by an American brewer

Original 2007 review (on-tap):
Pours to a nice head and cloudy yellow color. Aroma is traditional hefe--banana and clove. Flavor is typical hefe with spicy clovey notes and banana throughout. Nice wheat bite. Reminiscent of many other well-made American hefeweizens. An easy drinking, well-made hefeweizen.
Follow-up 2014: Just picked up a sixer at a Tupelo Kroger. Date bottled 01/22/14. Tasted fresh and the review holds true for the bottled product. The way a Hefe should taste. Wish I bought a whole case now... my hefe-loving wife will love this. Pick up some today.
Yazoo please head west. Arkansas and Oklahoma will support you.

I went on a Hefeweizen tirade for many weeks. This one is a little disappointing as it doesn't taste of a Hefeweizen one bit. It has a mid body Hefeweizen feel but only after an overly hoppy attack that you don't expect. If you're in the Hef game for a mellow, wheat feel-this beer will take you off guard.
