BEER INFO

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.

Had it on draft at the Nashville airport Yazoo kiosk. Slightly above average hef. Little fruitier (lemons and bananas) and more.crisp than expected. Easy drinking. Solid effort.

It looked fine but the smell and taste were dead. Very malted and stale. This was surprising as it was on draft. Less flavor and less fresh tasting than blue moon. I was hoping for something to rival live oak and ended up wishing I had a blue moon.

Had this on 2014-12-10 in Gallatin, TN from a bottle

A - Straw with a 1-finger white head and moderate lace

S - Banana bread with a bit of clove. Fairly mild.

T - Much like the aroma with some more clove. Touch of balancing bitterness. Dries nicely.

M - Medium body and high carbonation. Good for the style.

O - Pretty authentic hefe. Nice flavor and feel. One of the better Yazoo beers I've tried.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of bananas, cloves, delicious. Taste is wheat, banana, clove, very refreshing and smooth. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a satisfying session beer.
