Blur Hefeweizen on draught at Flying Saucer Austin
Circle
20130616
Tap, Shaker Pint

A - Thin yet frothy looking head. Uniformly cloudy, opaque off-gold with a tinge of yellow. Lacing sticks around quite nicely, it is quite thick swathed.

S - Banana and wheat, with some bubblegum.Very slight lemon. Also a little nuttiness. Detecting a very slight grass as well,. Banana is the largest smell component.

T - A banana-wheaty mix, with some earthiness. Slight lemon zest on back end. The earthiness is a mix of a wood and some nuttiness. No obvious off flavors (no bacteria, cabbage, rust, etc.).

M - Smooth yet nicely carbonated. Medium bodied, not very bright/refreshing in feel. Carbonation kind of falters fast, almost as if this was on nitro,

D - I'd like to get more wheat, less earthiness, and a lighter body. Still better than expected based on recollection of a different beer from this brewery (did my best to disregard that memory and give this beer a fair shake).
4, 3.75, 3.5, 3, 3.25
(try but not worth seeking; if it's the only hef on the menu, settle for it).

This is by far my favorite beer ever. Hefeweizen is the bane of my beer-drinking existence. Finding one brewed locally that is as delicious as Blur is has been a blessing. I have to hunt it down here in San Antonio but it is worth the stalking. I am by far not a beer snob but I am very, very picky. Blur is delicious.

Circle Brewing Co. "Blur"
on tap @ Banger's Sausage House & Beer Garden, Austin, TX
$5/pint

An interesting hefeweizen. Darker orange than usual. Bold aroma. Sweetish wheat malt... sweetness is probably accentuated by the banana notes and tropical fruit/citrus (mango, pineapple, apple). It delivers solidly (perhaps heavy-handedly), but then maybe that's a bit much for extended drinkability. Clean and without flaw other than being a little heavy and sweet, it's hard to complain about but I feel like I keep wishing it was a little more refined.

I'd say that this is an all-around okay beer. It's lacking in most areas, though this is not to say that it is bad. It is a bit weak on flavor, in particular. It doesn't have the bite that I like so much about hefeweizens.

Best hefeweizen out there in my opinion. They also have a version that is aged with a brettanomyces, that is amazing
