Poured into a Pint Glass at the Flying Saucer

Reviewed from cell phones notes.

Appearance-Dark yellow with a 1 finger white head. Head dissipates quickly without leaving any trade of any head at all. Looking down at the class looks like a BMC with just a hazier body.

Smell-Strong Banana and Clove along with some peachy aroma. I also get an unpleasant aroma of rubbing alcohol. I'll take the good with the bad.

Taste-Mucccchhh better then the smell. Although the Banana shines it's definitely complimented with some Peach and Pear. Nice clove and coriander and a slightly bitter finish. No sightings of alcohol.

Mouthfeel-Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Refreshing.

Overall-I got nervous taking a whiff at the beer but the flavors really came out and was very very good. It wasn't as thick and sweet as other Hefes which makes it a very nice summer beer.

Got it from the Petrol Station in Houston in a growler.

A: Poured into a Saint Arnold Pub Crawl pint. Poured a light straw color with a thin lacing. Hazy, unfiltered with lots of carbonation.

S: Banana-rama! This thing has a strong hefe yeast and banana aroma.

T: See above. Strong banana flavor, with a slight alcohol taste on the finish.

M: Light bodied with plenty of carbonation.

O: I've had this a couple times and it is really good in the heat. Quite a tasty brew.

This beer blew me away. I had at lunch with my brother in law on draft at Major League Grill in Beaumont, TX. Delicious citrus malt on the nose, perfect balance and drinkability is great. Maybe it was just the moment but I was feeling a bit of a buzz after one 24 oz. beer which is unusual. Wasn't expecting such a great brew for a fairly new brewery (I tried Live Oak Hefeweizen a few days before & this blew it out of the water!) and I will definitely be drinking more of this brew.
