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.

Had on tap at Jim'Nick's BBQ in Murfreesboro,TN.Came in a standard pint glass a dull hazed medium golden with a thinner white head atop,knowing it wasn't in the proper glassware kept the score from going lower on the appearance.clove and banana aromas stood out most and they were pretty assertive,light toasted wheat underneath.alighter feel in the mouth but it made the beer go down even easier than many of the style.Banana and yeasy phenol flavors with a refreshing little lemony twang in the finish wich gave it a little complexity.Not a bad beer,not a style i go to very often but Iam sure it beats the TN heat in the summer.

Bottle purchased from Frugal Mcdougal's, Nashville, TN. Poured into Pint Glass

As an avid Hefe drinker, this is a damn good beer. Does it taste like it's German counterparts? No. It is most definitely an american hefeweizen, but a damn good one at that. I would put it second behind only SN's Kellerweis as the best American Hefe i've had.

Looks like a normal hefe, unfiltered with nice yeast suspension. nice white head.

Smells like a typical hefe, heavier on the banana presence than a German one, and also some citrus and heavy coriander notes.

The taste is extremely banana heavy, more so than any other Hefe i've had. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, I personally love the taste of this beer, but it is pretty unique when you compare them to almost any other Hefeweizen, German or American. Taste is sweet and short, doesn't really last long, as it's a little watery, but it's still balanced pretty decent. Somewhere in the middle I also was getting some subtle vanilla and citrus notes. Basically this tastes like what you would expect a "light" hefe to taste like, with extra banana. It's very drinkable, and very refreshing as are most wheat beers.

Overall I would buy this again, as I like supporting local breweries. Living in Nashville, I can get this as fresh as you can possibly get... which is pretty important considering how fast wheat beers go sour. This is a very unique hefe, I found it rather enjoyable in it's own way, but not a solid representation of the style. If you really want to experience what a true Hefeweizen tastes like, start with a Weihenstephaner, and from there expand to Franziskaner, Paulaner, and even Ardinger.
