Notes / Commercial Description:
Hundreds of years ago in Germany, wheat beers were considered 'breakfast' or 'after church' beers, a testament to their light refreshing flavor and a tradition of drinking them on weekend occasions. We invite you to enjoy our Hefeweizen (hay-fa-VEIT-sen) any day of the week.

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.

Had this as a draft at their brewery in Tempe, AZ. Great amounts of wheat taste w/ a fruity smell/taste. Would order this again. One of there better selections of beers.
