From a can into a small tasting glass (sharing with friends generous enough to bring some back from Austin). Beautiful clear straw color with nice white head. Aroma is exactly as others have said - bananas and cloves. Taste follows the nose and is crisp and refreshing; with a nice bubbly mouth feel. A great Hefeweizen, one that I could enjoy year-round if I lived near Austin.

On tap at Hi Hat. Aroma brings back memories of Germany. Right on the money with bananas and bubblegum. Body, taste all on target. I get the high ratings. Finally, a true American weizen.

One of the easiest beers to drink and maybe the best of this style.

One of the nicest beers I had in a while. Really dig the sweet smell (banana and cloves are really charming). The taste is crisp and clean . Bit of spritz to it all. I understand why people are trading like crazy to get these cans now. I'm usually not of lighter beers but this has started to turn me. Worth trying out...perhaps even hunting down
