Served on the brewery tour in mid-July. Honestly not super impressed with this hefeweizen, though it was definitely among the more drinkable options served at the tour. Definitely a drinkable American hefeweizen, but one that lacks a lot of the depth and richness of the German exemplars. Decent flavors, if a little sweet and overbearing on the banana note, and with a thin malt backbone. Drinkable.

On tap at Clybourn.
A-Very hazy, white filmy head. Burnt yellow color.
S-Clove, banana bread, malty.
T-Like most other hefes but with some alcohol bite. Also some phenols. Overall quality is grainy with nice notes of banana like esters and cloves.
M-Nice smooth body.
O-The alcohols take away from the drinkability of this hefe. A bit bitter in the finish for my taste.
