Schlafly Hefeweizen ~ Saint Louis Brewery

Appearance: cloudy orange and banana under a solid layer of white. Wisps of lace crawl up the sides of the glass. Swirls thick, heady, and chewy.

Nose: yeasty doughy slices of bread. Banana peel. Generic tropical skins. Cracked grains. Overall rather mild.

Palate: creamy bready softness enhances the overall mild character of this beer – like biting into the middle of a fresh loaf of bread. Banana lemon cream. Grows a bit bitter with lemon skin and bread crusts.

Final Thoughts: it was alright but rather mild and unimpressive for a hefeweizen. I like my hefeweizens like the germans like them – big, bold, chewy banana clove awesomeness. This was like a thin watered down German wannabe.
