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.

I thought this was a good beer for its style. Everything about it was typical of a good Hefeweizen.

This beer isn't really my thing, but I see the appeal. It looks and smells good (very fruity smell), but I'm not super crazy about the taste or feel. Too thin for my taste also. Overall, it's not bad. I like it (a little bit).

Hazy straw color with a thick rocky white head. Great duration and lacing. Aromas primarily banana, wheat, dough, and some clove. Taste follows with great estery banana and floral notes, nice doughy wheat, and some clove. Not much bubblegum, which is fine with me.

First time having this and new to this style of beer. Head left quickly. Smells of banana and bread. Light. Seems watery or maybe thin in the mouth. Pretty good taste, but not great by any means. Little tart on finish? If you want to stay away from hops, try this type.

one of the lighter takes on the style i have had in awhile, i can see the appeal though in a humid tennessee summer. there is almost no body to this, not that it feels watery, but its super light and i find it unbecoming to the style in general, but with the citrus notes in here, it almost flirts the wit line at times, and i think it works in this one instance. an exception to the rule if you will. sunny colored beer, hazy, but still more clear than opaque. not the big creamy head i like in these either, but i have already accepted this as something different. nose and taste of preserved lemons and belgian spicy yeast, less banana than others, which also keeps it light. its a good thing its super well charged in the feel, any less this would seem watery and lose its capacity for refreshment. one of those beers you could lose track of and drink 15 of, but i prefer a slightly meatier hefe, even though the context of this one is not lost on me. cool beer, a little basic, and a little less compelling than others they make, but tasty enough for sure.

Light wheat and grassy aroma, signature of the Hefeweizen Style.

The initial head dissipated quickly, and the mouthfeel is a little thin.

A nice little Hef.

Pale/wheat ale taste at first with a weaker banana after taste. A different but great taste for a sunny day!

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.
