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.

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.

This is one of my favorite American Hefes. It stays true to the style with it's creamy head, and light banana notes. I do wish it came in a 16.9 oz bottle though, for authenticity. Soft on the palate and belly, this is a perfect beer for yard work, or lounging around the porch day. The South truly needs a good hefe in it's midst, and I think this is the one.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a 20oz imperial pint. Thanks to HollyAnn for the hook up!

Bottled on: Jan/Week 2 (2008 I assume)

A: Pours a hazy pale gold color with a creamy white head that's two fingers in height. Although fed by some active carbonation the head dies pretty quickly, leaving a small amount of lace behind.

S: Nice yeasty aromas of banana and clove followed closely by some tart fruit and a mild breadiness.

T: Enjoyable yeast flavors (banana, clove, and bubblegum) that have biscuit-y, bread-y, and toasted crustiness nipping on their heels. Also along for the ride is pepper and a tart and slightly sour citrus flavor that lends some balance.

M: Pretty chewy and pleasantly spicy on the tongue. Interesting peeks of dry/toasted malt.

D: Very good. I bet this is very popular around Nashville in the summertime.

Likely the most promising brew on their docket. A very delicate and characterful brew. Opens with a burst of citrus, spiciness, and soft pilsner malts. These characteristics bridge over to flavors easily, bringing a juicy, fruity sweetness reliant mainly on lemons, banannas, and berries, but spiced with clove, pepper, corriander, and orange peel. The body is light and creamy; making it easy drinking, but with a light, airy texture, and a hint of mint in the finish. A terrific thirst quencher that isn't over-done on any front.

Serving type: growler
