Yazoo Hefeweizen

American craft beer number 200 of 365! Yeah. Celebration done. I will do another short lived one for 300 and then officially be completely happy once I hit 365. Having a beer for me is no where near a chore but always coming up with one that is different from the rest as well as making me happy on a long day after work, gives it some complications. Yes, day 365 will be welcomed.

My first beer from Yazoo Brewing Company is simply named Hefeweizen. As soon as I hear that name or hear that a beer is associated with the Hefeweizen style my excitement level goes up a notch as it did with this beer from Yazoo.

Hefeweizen has some good qualities that I appreciate in both the nose and taste: yeast, wheat, and clove as well as a nice lemon grass hop aroma. I found it to really be missing banana completely and, after a period of time in the glass, it started to lose everything but the wheat and yeast. That wasn’t horrible but it made me begin to wonder if this beer received in a transaction was all that fresh. I still enjoyed the beer and the beginning led me to believe they had a solid offering. Hopefully I can try one on tap some day. Enjoy!

Aroma: 6, Taste: 6, Look: 9, Drinkability: 9, Overall: 7.5

Useless Fact: Fashionable women in medieval Japan gilded or blackened their teeth. Today many Hindu women in India stain their teeth bright red to enhance their appearance.
