Hazy golden beer. Light ripe banana notes and bubblegum with heavy clove and spicy tastes. Refreshing mouthfeel and easy drinking brew. Only found on draft :(

Reviewed from notes. Growler shared.

A: Pours a hazy pale yellow under a half-inch thick white head which fades to the rim slowly and leaves spotty lace.

N: Pungent banana esters, wheat grains, yeast, clove, fruity, mild earth.

T: Follows nose with mild citrus overtones.

M: Light body and medium carbonation. Creamy, fruity and wheaty finish.

O: Solid and well balanced. Would definitely have again.

I have had this delicious brew many times around town and take for granted that we have a world class hefeweizen here in Austin. The beer poured an opaque golden yellow with an enormous fluffy white head. The aroma was of bananas, cloves and a fruity spice that hit the perfect hefe tones. The taste was classic Hefe with bold bubblegum, banana, clove and spices that floated on a thick and creamy body with zero bitterness. The Live Oak Hefe is so thick, creamy and smooth its like drinking a beer milkshake. The note perfect hefeweizen flavors were bold and dominate while maintaining a very refreshing and drinkable brew. I can easily drink pint after pint of this on a hot day in Texas. It easily stands up to and exceeds its German counterparts and I would take it over just about any classic German Hefe.
