On tap at the Beast & Barrel in TN.
Cloudy pale apricot body, an unusual color, with a creamy and durable tan head and good lacing.
Fruit dominated aroma and flavor with the presence of "pounds of strawberries and raspberries" dominate but not overpowering. Very good, near neutral, bitter/sweet ratio.
Refreshing. Light bodied with good carbonation.

Interesting looking hefe. Cloudy apricot hue with a one-finger white head. Aroma was mainly yeast and I also got sweaty socks like another reviewer. Taste was primarily weak tart berries with no typical hefe clove, banana, or bubblegum notes. Thin, watery feel. I like the brewery but won't be getting this again.

Jackalope Brewing "Lovebird Wheat"
on tap at the brewery, 4 April 2015

Unfortunately I feel that the addition of fruit to this weizen has ruined it. I believe it's a combination of strawberry and raspberry, but it came off as more of a dull, watered-down grapefruit ale. Stick with the standard hefeweizen, it's better.
