Brewed by:
Yazoo Brewing Company
Tennessee, United States

Style: Hefeweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
An authentic example of a Bavarian Hefeweizen. “Hefe” means cloudy or yeasty and “weizen” means wheat. This beer is made with mostly wheat and uses a true Hefeweizen yeast that gives it a fruity, banana aroma with just a hint of cloves. The tart finish makes this the perfect summer beer.

From 08/09/13 notes. Had this at Rippy's, among other places, over the weekend in Nashville. 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

a - Pours a hazy, bright yellow color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of bananas, bready malts, dough, spices, cloves, and light pepper. Nice bananas, would have liked a little less spice.

t - Tastes of bananas, wheat, dough, biscuit malts, light fruity malts, cloves, spice, light earthy and floral notes. More fruit than the nose and less pepper and spice, so a step up for me.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Pretty smooth and easy to throw a few back.

o - Overall a really nice hefeweizen; glad to see this all over Broadway as I had a few. Nice fruity taste and smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Would definitely order it again and a great summer beer.
