look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

12oz longneck
A) Pours with a big head that settles quickly to a thin lacing on top. Hazy, straw colored body.
S) Clove. Banana. Yeasty
T) Light, wheat taste, a bit on the thin side. Lingering dry, graininess in the finish.
M) Crisp. Light body. Dry.
O) Looks good, smells good, but lacks some hefeweizen characteristics like the chewy, wheaty body. Drinks more like a golden ale.

12 oz bottled stamped BEST BEFORE 050914 served in a snifter.
Pours with almost no head. Lightly hazy even just a tiny bit of sediment left in the bottle.
True enough to style to be easily recognized as a Hefeweizen. Banana, clove and wheat are dominant. A bit thin and sweet, rather astringent, and not as soft as hoped. Otherwise, not bad.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is similar to an American Adjunct Lager with a large white head. Sweet aroma with an overly sweet taste of bananas and some yeast. Not a bad beer, Mexico seems to be developing a craft beer industry also.

Looks like a Hef...smell like a Hef (Kinda), Taste like a Hef kinda, and...well ya guessed it, feels like a Hef. This being said, something is missing. Has that made in a commercial plant taste to it. Seems like not enough put into the fine art of brewing. This is what I'd expect if say...Schlitz made a hef. I can't say this was bad...it was acceptable to drink...just not a highly refined brew you'd go out of your way to find.

Chicago 1/4/16 (11.2 oz bottle poured into beer glass). Hazy dark golden pour with generous white head and heavy carbonation fading to mild upon settling. Strong lemon, orange and yeast aroma. Heavy feel and felt stronger than the 5.5% ABV. Taste of lemon and citrus dominates, didn’t like the taste of banana. Many better Hefeweizen options out there.

3.09/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance:
Bright golden in color with a hazy body and a fine sediment resting at the bottom of the glass. The carbonation is lively as you pour and slowly settles into a still body of beer. The head is thick, white and porous and quickly thins out into a thin lasso around the glass. Good lacing marks every sip you take.
This beer does become quite dark when the sediments are agitated and even looks better.
Smell:
Lemon, grass and citrus zest fill your nose. A mild malt aroma hits you after a while.
Taste:
The flavors are a bit watered down, but as it warms up, the lemon and citrus zest start coming out. It’s slightly tart overall and sweet as you swallow even in its aftertaste.
Mouthfeel:
Light bodied, smooth.
Overall:
This is an OK beer, not one I would buy again but it as a nice try, it’s very smooth but you have to wait about thirty minutes for the fi=ull flavors to come out.

A: The beer is hazy yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down, leaving only some wispy lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderately strong aromas of bananas are present in the nose along with some hints of wheat.
T: Like the smell, the overall taste is dominated by flavors of bananas from the yeast and has hints of the underlying wheat. No clove-like spices are detectable.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer might not look like a traditional hefeweizen and lacks the champagne-like effervescence but the smell and taste are true to the style. It's easy to drink and isn't a bad Mexican representation of a Bavarian style.

Orange scents with bubblegum, wheat bread, and Belgian yeast. Taste starts off bread like but finishes very wet and inky, almost an under attenuated taste. Okay on the subliminal flavors but not so good on quality

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a thin white head that fades very quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains bananas, wheat, light caramelized malts, some citrus and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then some mild sweetness comes in from flavors of bananas, citrus and caramel. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a little bit of balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth but a bit watery, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style. It's not a bad beer, but there are definitely several other options in the style that I would choose first.

Immortal Beloved pours to a very brief-lived medium creamy white head on a very effervescent deep gold body that is somewhere between cloudy and hazy. Lacing is sparse, and immediately beats a quick retreat back into the beer. The nose is moderate in intensity, as suits the style, leading with yeast, then a nice blend of candy-like banana, clove-spice and faint alcohol overtones; there is surprisingly little wheat character to be found. The initial flavor is banana candy with hints of tart citrus; by mid-palate the banana deepens and sweetens, some spicy clove character emerges to back it up and the tartness increases a bit. There's just a bit of yeast character present, and the wheat foundation is mostly obscured by the other flavors. The finish is citrus/estery, showing a tart banana flavor; this plus a bit of yeast bite constitutes the linger, which lasts for a few minutes. The mouthfeel is commensurate with the light-medium body, while the texture is a bit too peppery from the over-expressed carbonation and shows a disappointing lack of creaminess. (11.2 oz screwtop bottle, no code date)

I forget when and where I discovered this series, but I was immediately struck by the label art. I hope that someone at Los Muertos is reading this and will CANsider putting these beers in CANs as the art would look fantastic in this format.

From the bottle: "Day of the Dead Beer[/]Cerveza De Los Muertos".

This label is a little disturbing. Is the groom trying to give the bride a hickey or is he a closet zombie, taking a bite from her neck? Either way, she seems to be enjoying herself with her head tilted,her right arm thrown back, her eyes closed and a gentle smile playing across her ruby lips. I guess that once you are dead and immortal anything goes. I will report back when my time comes.

I could see some sediment in the punt of the bottle so I really agitated it before I unscrewed the top. I got two fingers of soapy, tawny head that quickly fell away to a skim. Color was a cloudy yellowish-orange, like fresh-pressed apple cider (SRM = > 13, < 17). Nose smelled like banana bread - very banana-like but with a strong bready malt presence. Hefeweizen remains one of my least favorite styles, but I am trying very hard to give them a chance. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was definitely more banana than bready malt. I dislike banana, either artificially or as a byproduct of the yeast strain. It irks me because I know that a hefeweizen that is fermented under lager conditions will be clove-forward in its esters and I really dig that. This was pretty run-of-the-mill as far as I was concerned. Finish was semi-sweet, not cloying (thank Bob!) and drinkable, but one would be my limit. I am willing to revisit this if they begin to CAN our loving couple.

Poured from a 33 cl bottle into a weizen.

A: Golden hue. Pours a 1 finger, bubbly white head. Settles quickly. Plenty of rising effervescence, and pockets of bubbles cling to the sides of the glass. Some fair lacing mostly retreats back into the body of the brew.

S: Sourdough, yeast, and plenty of lemon citrus.

T: Wheat, with a little bite, some lemon citrus, a bit of butterscotch, and cotton candy.

M: Light, but full bodied. Diacety in the finish.

D: Session.

Atmosphere is pretty decent. Fair head, and some okay lacing. Characteristic nose of doughy and citrusy character. Wheat with a little citrus, but more buttery sweet and candy sweet components. Overall, this is decent quaff.
