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 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.

My favorite and the most flavorful American-made hefeweizen. It has a very strong banana flavor.
