On tap at the Yazoo brewery, served in a tall Hefeweizen glass. It arrived looking cloudy and golden wheat in color. A rocky white head filled the top of the glass. Great looking beer for the style.
The aroma shows lots of breadywheat and banana flavors to it. The yeasty, clove like spices are a little more reserved in it, which I like. Very nice for the style, and especially nice on this hot day.
In the taste I again get lots of banana and sweet, bready, wheat malts. A little clove spice comes out in the finish. Very drinkable and refreshing beer overall.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied for the style with moderate carbonation. Overall I thought it was a very solid beer of the style. I had this a few times over the weekend in Nashville and having it on tap, straight from the brewery, in the appropriate glass was a significantly better experience than the other times I had it around town. Maybe it was just the atmosphere or how hot I was, but that was my experience at least.

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.

Received a 12 FL. OZ. Bottle from a friend from Nashville, TN. Poured from the Blue/Yellow labeled bottle w/ a Blonde Women with wild hair holding a beer into a 12oz Snifter Glass. Has a BOTTLED ON DATE of FEB 03 12 on the side of the label.
Aroma- Has a great amount of German malt and also citrus. TONS of citrus at that. Light spices.
Appearance- Pours a .5 finger head that has average retention. Has a deep golden/light orange colored body with tons of cloud. Leaves good lacing behind.
Flavor- Sweet, light citrus, and good spice. Easy characters of malt and leaves with a sweet finish. No hops present.
Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, High Carbonation, Effervescent, and leaves only malts on the palate.
Overall Impression-Very nice for a Hefe that won a 2004 GABF award. I hope to pick up more of this when in Nashville this summer to enjoy during the heated summer months.

Tasted On: 03-25-2012
Freshness: Bottled on 03-08-2012
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle
Glassware: Weizen Glass
Purchased: 6-pack from Kroger
Color is a semi-hazy straw yellow, topped by a white head of tight bubbles between 2 and 3 fingers. Both head retention and lacing are fair.
Aromas are first and foremost of banana, followed by some zesty notes like lemon. Other smells are clove spices and of bubblegum fruitiness and sweetness.
Taste is of banana fruitiness and delicately sweet wheat malt. Crisp, with a light amount of tart and no bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with carbonation on the high end. Aftertaste is fruity and slightly citrus-like and spicy.
Overall I'd rate this a refreshing and delightful wheat beer for the spring and summer.

Still technically winter but a nice hot day makes me dream of summer, so why not a nice hefe. Thanks to pitasoup (reddit) for this one. And screw this lame-o screw cap.
Pours a light fizzy head that gets to almost 1 finger on my upside down pour bit the head fades almost instantly to a light covering like it was a fake head, hazy but I can see the column of sediment swirling in the middle of the murky golden wheat colored beer.
Nose is fairly typical hefe, wheat, citrus, a nice banana, hint of clove spices, a fruity and light malty aroma.
Taste is also typical, wheat flavors though a bit watery, some banana and hint of clove, slightly yeasty, although juicy. a bit malty, some light citrus, zest, bit fruity. Not much else going on but it's pretty much what it should be maybe slightly watery. Finish is fairly dry, lingering citrus, wheat, and light yeast.
Mouth is lighter bodied, good carb.
Overall not bad, nothing really wrong, typical hefe flavors, nice sumer wheat beer.
