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.

Pours a slightly hazy solar yellow with a thin white head - not impressive, but I am prejudiced in favor of dark beers, so I'll go easy since it's a hefe. Strong aroma is wheaty and yeasty with a slightly sweet lemon overtone. Yummy flavor is wheaty and yeasty and has a firm citrus undertone. There is a slight soapy hint, but this comes and goes. Texture is thick, smooth and finely fizzy. A good summer beer.

Bottle shared by Lee at the Brick Store.

Pours clear yellow with a small soapy white head that dissipates almost immediately and leaves no lacing.

The aroma is heavy on the tart lemons with a subtle underlying sweet banana and bubble gum sweetness. Sweet malt and yeast make up the rest. Not much spiciness that I could tell.

The taste also starts with a tart lemon zing which gives way to a very modest hefe base with some ripe bananas and cotton candy. The finish is very dry and slightly tart.

The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and drier and a bit more tart than most hefes.

This is a solid beer but not one my favorite hefes. It's a little more tart than I'd prefer with a bit more sweetness. Still, not bad.

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 the bottle a clear pale yellow color with a sharp fizzy white head. This one is so fizzy, I'd swear someone dropped in an Alka-Seltzer.

Big aroma of bananas along with mild cloves, lemon, and table salt.

The taste is lemon, green apple, and wheat. The tartness of this one caught me by surprise.

Thinner bodied, crisp and tart, and sharply carbonated.

A decent hefe from Yazoo but not one I'll likely have again.

Hazy yellow/orange in color, pale, with a white finger plus of head. No lacing.

Smell is nice, with some citrus, graininess, slight malt sweetness and some banana.

Much of the same. Bit more on the banana though.

The feel is a little silky, smooth, light in body. Decent carbonation.

Pretty good drinkability. Multiples would be good.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the Grainary in Mount Pleasant, SC. The appearance is a lightly murky gold color with a small white head. The aroma is banana and some wheat. The taste is wheat and cloves with some banana in the background.
