Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
An authentic example of a Bavarian Hefeweizen. “Hefe” means cloudy or yeasty and “weizen” means wheat. This beer is made with mostly wheat and uses a true Hefeweizen yeast that gives it a fruity, banana aroma with just a hint of cloves. The tart finish makes this the perfect summer beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured from a bottle into a New Belgium globe glass.

Pours butterscotch gold with an off white head

Smells like banana bread and buttery yeast

Tastes is smokey, banana, spicy then more banana

Feels sharp at first, then really creamy

I really like this one, I could drink it all night.

A - Pours a pale yellow that is crystal clear. One and a half white fluffy head with lots and lots of bubbles. Oddly...not much retention and zero lacing

S - Whew...better like bananas! Very heavy on the bananas up front. Smells sweet. Definate clove on the back as well.

T - Very much like the aroma. Very heavy on the banana flavor followed by clove. Very good flavor overall....if you like banana

M - Extremely light drinking beer. Bubbles tend to cling to your tongue and the roof of your mouth.

O - A very good hef. East drinking with a ton of flavor. No complaints. I dont want that much banana in my beer al lthe time but at times it would be a very nice change

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.
