1 PINT 6 FL OZ bottle
Served in a weizen glass

L - It is cloudy once I disturbed the yeast at the bottom of the bottle. The beer is orange/yellow in color with a thick, creamy, off-white head that is continually fed by a stream of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass.

S - The scent of banana cream is in the air. The smell reminds me of banana pudding.

T - This is a flavorful beer. Of course there is plenty of banana. I get some spices from the yeast as well. It is a great combination of flavors.

F - It is rather full bodied for a hefe.

O - This is probably one of the best American hefes that I have tried. I typically avoid the style unless it is a German brewer. It is well done and comparable to some of the better German versions of this style.

Bottle from some fantasy baseball winnings. Thanks, Derek! Pours hazy yellow golden with a fluffy white 2 finger head that dissipates quickly. Really nice aroma of banana esters, honey, yeasty hefe funk, pears, sweetness. Flavor is sweet banana esters, light honey sweetness, pears, yeasty yeasties, lingering sweetness. Light bodied with plus carbonation as expected from the style. This is really nicely done actually.

The absolute best American made hefeweizen I have ever had. Yet another gem from three floyds. Highly recommend it if you can get it.

This beer is full of clove and banana Esters. Absolutely delicious! A perfect balance of wheat malts, Deutschland yeast, and hopps. An artisan's hefeweissen, made to perfection.
