On tap at the Holy Grail Pub. Served as Franconia Hefeweizen.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a decent-sized white head. The aroma is full of wheat with some banana and spicy clove notes. The flavor is very creamy and is full of banana flavor. There is a little bit of clove in the flavor, but it hides behind the banana and wheat. Creamy, medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. A very nice Texas-brewed hefeweizen.

At the Addison Flying Saucer. It features a modest head with a nice cloudy gold color. The aroma is modest, with some light fruity scent The body is soft and creamy, with vanilla fruitiness... could use more phenols for a good balance. Reminds me quite a bit of Flying Dog's wheat beer. Not bad, but not quite what I look for in a hefe.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a weizen.

A: Hazy, dark golden hue. Pours a 1 finger, bubbly white head, which quickly dissipates. Lots of rising effervescence, and small pockets of carbonation cling to the sides of the glass. Slight lacing.

S: Yeast, a little lemon citrus, coriander, and... walnut?

T: A little yeast, very wheaty. Also, a very noticeable honey-ish sweetness... not strong, but distinct. A little savory spice for balance.

M: Starchy feel. Light, but thick. Wheat and sweet in the front, bready in the finish.

D: Session, but worth savoring.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Fair head, lots of carbonation, and some slight lacing. Nose is sourdough bread with lemon, spice, and nut components. Very wheaty with some distinct honey sweetness and spice. Thick and starchy. Overall, this is a really nice quaff.

On tap at Garland, TX. Pours hazy-golden with long lasting, fluffy, tall, white head. Aroma is of what malt, yeast and banana. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is of yeast, wheat malt, spices and strange fruit. Finish is long with strange aftertaste. I would not buy this brew again.
