BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Live Oak Brewing Company
Texas, United States
liveoakbrewing.com

Style: German Hefeweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Modeled after the classic wheat beers of Bavaria, Hefeweizen is cloudy and straw-colored with a meringue-like head that lingers to the bottom of the glass. Brewed with an ample volume of wheat malt and few hops, this beer features a unique yeast strain that produces harmonious notes of clove, banana, and vanilla throughout this effervescent brew. A traditional interpretation of a classic style, this idiosyncratic Bavarian beer is perfectly at home here in Texas.

Very good HefeWeizen!! I am not a fan of this style of beer whatsoever, but this one is certainly drinkable. I would definitely try it again - perfect for long walks on the beach with that special someone according to @Mpontiakos

In Houston on business, I figured this would be my chance to give this a try. Staying on the outskirts of town, so I stopped at a very well stocked store - lots of TX beers, but no Live Oak. Cashier is well versed and tells me the brewery does not bottle. hmmm - Hefe in the too 100 is unusual enough, but one not distributed. I'm wondering if a little home team cheering might be at work. But undaunted I set off for the Flying Saucer to track it down, and glad I am. Perhaps the best hefe I've had, besting the German leaders. Perfect blend of malt and yeast flavors without too much banana or clove.
