The clove and yeast aroma is standard, but this beer blossoms on your tongue. I'm immediately struck by the balance, starting with toasted and doughy malts and finishing with sweeter banana, vanilla, and more clove. Believe the hype. This sucker has depth.

Recommended by specs employee in Katy. Poured into pint glass. Two finger head disappeared quite quick. Cloudy and well carbonated. Looks like something good to chew on. Nose of yeast and spice. Initial taste, ahhhh, this is really good. Definite witbier flavor with spice. Excellent and refreshing.

Maybe the best American hefeweizen, great clove, banana, bubble gum flavors on the aroma and the taste. Wonderful mouth feel and a real refreshing finish that is perfect for a Texas Summer.

Had on tap at the brewery. Cloudy straw colored with a fluffy white head. A small amount of lace. The smell is mostly bread, black pepper, vanilla, and cut grass. The taste is all of that, plus a creamy flavor that might just be due to the mouthfeel. Velvety and smooth. This is a perfect example of the style, and definite deserves the high ratings it recieves.

A nice hazy, gold beer with a white head that fades quickly and leaves no lacing. The smell is sweet with banana bread and cloves. The taste is sweet with bananas, cloves, bright citrus and straw. This is a really damn good Hefe.

Not my favorite style, but perhaps the best American example of the style. Pours a hazy gold with a soft foamy head. Smell is bright clove and banana esters, with some grass and hay. Taste is mild, grassy and citrusy. Feel is smooth as silk. Couldn't ask for a better American Hefe.
