My first visit to Texas and a keg of this great beer in my friends back yard for a wedding equals pure awesomness! Hazy yellow color with a full two fingers of fluffy white foam. Great aroma of banana with plenty of biscuit character to level it out. Creamy smooth mouthfeel here as well.

famous for a reason, this is perhaps the best hefeweizen made on american soil, and if it isnt, i want to taste whats better. its so light and flavorful, truly an all day drinker, and quite authentic too. its super light in color, almost watery looking yellow, and with a smaller head than the german ones that froth all down the edges of the glass, but by no means flat. the nose is so much more than banana clove, although thats definitely going on here. the wheat malt is aromatic and flavorful for its real pale cloudy color, and the fruit of the yeast goes well beyond banana to pear and light green apple, even green grape. the spice aspect is lesser, more of a general allspice thing rather than clove, which works well for me, it keeps it light. carbonation is ample, and the finish is clean for how fruity the yeast is. i could drink ten or more of these and like each one just as much. maybe just a bit light in body for me, could use a touch more meat, but its hard to think about changing anything here. who says old world styles dont rank anymore? this is killer!

edit: just had this in a can for the first time and oh my goodness, even better than the draft experience i had. quite possibly the very best hefe i have ever had. not changing original scores here, but this is flawless. i could (and would very much like to) drink 20 of these...
