Refreshing and not overly sweet like some weizens. I like to drink it outside when its a warm fall afternoon

The label depicts a striking woman in heels & is cleverly named "El Hefe Weizen" (Jefe means boss in Spanish). A nod to both the style of beer & the true "boss" in many households. El Hefe pours a bright gold color & is surprisingly clear for a hefeweizen. I expect a hefe to be a lil more cloudy/hazy. It smells as expected however. Very fresh with hints of clove and banana. The taste is crisp & mirrors the smell but only adds in a small amount of citrus (some might want to fruit it). The body of the beer is really thin compared to a Live Oak Hefe but I kind of like that its different. What fun would it be if every beer tasted the same?

I like this beer as much as Shock Top but less than Paulaner. The banana notes are a very nice touch and its brewed local so I get it a lot during the summer. Seems more filtered than Paulaner. Not as cloudy.
