BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Live Oak Brewing Company
Texas, United States
liveoakbrewing.com

Style: Hefeweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Modeled after the classic wheat beers of Bavaria, Hefeweizen is cloudy and straw-colored with a meringue-like head that lingers to the bottom of the glass. Brewed with an ample volume of wheat malt and few hops, this beer features a unique yeast strain that produces harmonious notes of clove, banana, and vanilla throughout this effervescent brew. A traditional interpretation of a classic style, this idiosyncratic Bavarian beer is perfectly at home here in Texas.

Very pale, clear yellow color with close to three fingers of airy white head that are quick to dissipate into almost nothingness. Big banana aroma. Quite clean and crisp smelling. Mildly soapy, but in a good way. Top notch. Light hefeweizen banana flavors in the taste, again with some soapy notes, a little bubblegum, clove, white pepper. Light bodied with some slight creaminess to it. A great brew. Would love this on a hot summer night.
