El Hefe Añejo

I had this beer at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) which is pretty much the United States' Olympics for beer, where you'll find practically every style of beer imaginable.  Normally, Hefeweizen's (Wheat Beer) aren't my first choice when I'm ordering. Then I saw Golden Road El Hefe I thought to myself, a tequila barrel aged hefeweizen?,  I gotta try that! I'm really glad I did, 'cause I loved this beer. Most wheat beers usually have a banana like flavor, but for this one think carmelized or candied banana married with a wooden tequila agave sweetness and a hint of pepper.
