A wonderful representation of the style. Very robust a full-flavored. Would love if this was available to me on a regular basis. Great beer.

On draft at Flying Saucer in Houston. This is easily the best American Hefeweizen I have ever had. Comes incredibly close to the great German offerings. Really fantastic.

World class! A great Hefe in the Bavarian tradition. My only critique of this beer is it is not available in most locations outside of Texas and it is not bottled and exported. When I visit Austin I drink nothing else...yeah, it's that good.
