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.

This is my favorite beer really. I have only tried a handful, but as mentioned above, you better like bananas. The taste of banana is very present and if you are into that then this is probably the best beer you are going to find due to such a strong smell and taste. The banana gives it a sweeter taste than most beers, again, if you are into that.

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

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.
