look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell has some banana and wheat elements to it. Taste is banana, spice, some wheat, refreshing and disappearing quick. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

A: Pours a cloudy golden apricot in color with light to moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and some peach + golden yellow + burnt orange highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy beige head that slowly reduces to a medium thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of overripe bananas with moderate aromas of lemon citrus and moderate aromas of clove. There is a light note of wheat underneath.

T: Upfront there is the lightest hint of wheat but that is quickly overtaken by moderate to strong flavors of overripe and slightly bruised bananas (you know the ones that are just about to turn and only be good for making banana bread). There are some light to moderate flavors of lemon citrus and moderate to strong flavors of clove.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Kind of creamy.

O: This one is pretty easy to drink but might be a touch too sweet with the overripe/bruised banana flavors and aromas. Refreshing and certainly sessionable.

Immortal Beloved Hefeweizen has a medium, off-white head, a very hazy, opaque, orange appearance, lots of tight little bubble streams, and a decent lacing left behind. The aroma is very strongly of banana, and I was smelling that even before I brought my nose to the glass. The smells are of banana, white wheat bread, a bit of coriander, as the beer warms, and even a touch of lemon. Flavor is of banana, white wheat bread, bread crust, faint coriander, tap water (not unusual for wheat beer), lemon or citrus juice, sugar, and dough. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and cottony, and Immortal Beloved Hefeweizen finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and quaff-able. Overall, this is excellent, and I strongly recommend it!

Like all good Hefeweizens, the last couple of ounces of Immortal Beloved came out the bottle thick as mud; oddly enough they did not, however, manage to muddy the lightly coppered golden complexion. Where does all this brightness come from - holding it to the light practically requires sunglasses - and where's all the head? This don't look like no Hefe, man!

The beer smells like rotting lemons and badly bruised bananas and other tropical fruits - before shipping from Mexico, did they mix up the loading docks? Most of these festering fruity esters can directly be traced back to the yeast, though there's a particularly 'rancid' quality to this strain that is actually a little off-putting.

There's definitely some relevant flavours present but because the beer lacks the style's trademark creamy, full mouthfeel, it just doesn't taste right. In lacking the soft, sweet, wholesome breadiness of wheat, the malt bill tastes more like corn, linking thoughts to any of Mexico's many ubiquitous mass lagers.

And since the banana and spice are so subtle, it's a hard connection to overcome. While clove isn't entirely absent, it is faint enough to neglect; it impacts the overall beer no more than I do the score in the football game by yelling at the TV. And as for fruit, banana ear medicine is conjured a few times - not a bad taste, but not exactly ideal for a hot-weather quencher.

One word I remember from two years of university Spanish is "jefe". Well hermano, this 'Hefe' is certainly not boss. There is mucho mass to Mexican beer than Corona but this offering, like the others I've tried from Cervecera Mexicana, wouldn't have you believe that. I think next time I see one of these beautifully illustrated bottles on the shelf I'll have to say 'no, gracias'.

This one just came out in my area (as well as almost all of the breweries main line), and I had to give it a shot. After all, Mexican craft beer. I have been curious about that stuff for some time now.

so I picked up two bottles to give emmn a try.

a: Its color is proper for the style, but its weak head retention does seriously count against it. its part of the soul of a hefe-wisen
Granted it makes it a LOT easier to pour, but I count against it for this
2.5/5

s: Banana, clove, light spice, and some fruity smells (I'm thinking nutty apricot to an extent). Not bad, but its not blowing me away
3.5/5

t: did I mention that I had this one after work? this is a beer best enjoyed after work...Its very drinkable. Refreshing and VERY banana forward, its very much to my liking.
Its hard to keep the glass last with a taste like this.

M: odd. this one does not bite as hard as other hefe's, but I like that. I never much like the carbiantion bit from most hefe's. Lower carb than other hefe's,but still plenty carbonated to be enjoyed.
4/5

Overall, Iam not dissapointed by this one. Are their better hefe's? yea, sadly so. but this ones drinkability and refreshing nature really makes it a good choice to shake things up
Well worth it for a 6 pack, and as a good example of a good beer from mexico.
3.5/5

I got a sample bottle from our distributor at work. This pours a cloudy golden color with a slight off-white head. There is a pretty strong aroma of wheat, citrus, and coriander. The taste is creamy and full of citrus. Finishes with a little spice. Very similar tasting to Buffalo Bills Orange Blossom Cream Ale, which is more main-stream than this. It’s nice to finally see some decent Mexican craft beers in the U.S. market.
