BEER INFO

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

Style: German 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.

Appearance- The beer was a bright golden straw color with a white head.

Smell - The banana shines with a bright spiciness.

Taste - Banana comes to the front. There is a pleasant spiciness with hints of clove and a hint of cinnamon. There is a presence of dried green apples a yeasty backbone.

Mouthfeel - The yeast adheres the taste to the roof of the mouth.

Overall - A spot-on interpretation of the style.
