First of all I don't like this type of beer very much but I used to like it a lot. It's pretty average but doesn't suck. I wouldn't recommend it over some other hef beers but it's good enough to drink if you don't have a ton of choices.

Pours a clear yellow golden color with white head. Bananas, cloves, and wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with much of the same. Typical hefeweizen without the body of a typical hefeweizen.

This reminds me very much of Live Oak Hefe, the benchmark of Texas Hefeweizens. Probably a little more fruity thanLive Oak, but an outstanding example of a German Hefe!

O -I was not a fan of this. The yeast was overpowering which led to a bad aftertaste. I have had better Hefeweizens.

L- Golden . Not a lot of fizz.
S - pleasant. I could not discern one specific note. Very blended.
T - Overpowering yeast flavor.

Not a bad hefeweizen at all - the smell it a little weak, but the taste is very flavorful. I like the yeasty taste. It is very well-balanced too. Overall pretty decent.
