BEER INFO

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

Style: 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.

@brians52 - thanks for the recommendation, what an amazing Hef. Pours hazy yellow with a lacy head. Smells like a classic he'd with more citrus. Poured into a Teku glass to class it up.

Don't know what to say really other than this beer is perfect. Trying to describe its perfection would be a futile exercise. Just know that this is the best beer in the world of this style and one that I would drink everyday for the rest of my life. One of my all-time favorites.

Had this on tap last night. This is my favorite session beer and the best hefeweizen I have had in the US by far. Simply amazing.
Pours light brown very cloudy with a small bit of foam.
Aroma: A bit of clove combined with a delicate floral scent.
Taste: cloves, bready, banana, slight amount of hops.
Mouthfeel: chewy, a little sweet. There's some graininess to this beer. How do they do that? The incredible mouthfeel of this sets this hefe apart from all the others.
drinkability: very refreshing beer. Super drinkable. Good year around.

This is the only beer I have gave a perfect score so far and it deserves it.
