Pours gold. Short, foamy, Whitehead that Fades fast.

Smells wheat, yeast funk, clove, spice and banana.

Taste Citrus, wheat, clove, banana, yeast Funk and a little sweetness. Finishes semi-dry with yeast and citrus linger. Lighter medium body and smooth medium carbonation.

Gold in color with a fingernail of dishwater white around the rim. The aroma is an enticing blend of banana and a hint of clove. I'm tasting pale wheat and banana. The mouth is lit,crisp,and a touch watery.

Finally got to try this while I was down in Austin for a business trip. Pours super cloudy yellow color with a dense white head that doesn't quit. Big Bavarian aroma on this, sweet wheat with tons of spice. Flavor is about the same, good dose of sweetness that is washed away by wheaty grain notes and lots of clove and banana. Could drink this all day in the Texas heat. Really something special here and the beer could definitely rival it's European brethren from Bayern.

I just had the Live Oak Hefeweizen on tap at a restaurant in Austin.

Look: hazy golden hue with a thin white head.

Aroma: wheat, yeast, banana

Taste: Wheat, banana bread, yeast, a tad orange/citrus. It had a fairly mild flavor but it was very well balanced and the flavor was still distinct and inviting.

Feel: Perhaps a bit thin yet tasty and thirst quenching in the Texas heat.

Golden straw, slightly hazy. Lots of bubbles streaming up. Aroma- breadth yeast, banana, grass, orange. Taste- banana, orange, bread, bubblegum, peppery. Very very little bitterness. Mouthfeel- bubbly and tingly. Overall- digging this one. Very tasty, plenty more than just one layer to this.
