Picked up a growler 2-26-2017 courtesy of my buddy Mr. Doyle from his Black Friday growler book. Cost was a $2 tip to the bartender for the fill.
Beer poured orange with a nice white head initially that dissipated quickly.

Nose is classic German hefe yeast strain, bananas and cloves forward.

Taste follows the nose, banana and cloves blend nicely with the wheat malt base. Noble hops balance the malt sweetness nicely.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and pretty smooth.

Overall this is a good representation of the style. glad i finally got around to having this!

Had it while in New Orleans on tap into a 0.25l glass. Very nice head and good lacing. Wonderful banana and clove smell and taste. I might have rated it a bit higher but had a Live Oak Hefe later that day when back in Texas. Puts it perspective!

Split a draft with my cousin Michelle's husband Rob during the 2017 US Figure Skating championships in Kansas City, Missouri. It was solid and a pleasant surprise for a hefe, since I was trying beers from the area. Recommend!

On tap at an airport G-B. Look is medium orange and quite cloudy. A bit darker than most hefes. Smell is light banana and fruit. Taste is slightly "sharp" up front, with the yeasty esters coming later. Aftertaste is all banana, in a good way (I like my hefes this way). Not much of the clove or spice elements, though I do get some every other sip. Feel is fine for the style. Overall a solid example. I would be happy to have again.
