If I hadn't already come to enjoy hefeweizen, DC Brau's El Hefe Speaks would have done nothing to win me over to the style. Once you get past the terrible name, El Hefe Speaks is a marginal (at absolute best) wheat beer. It has a cloudy tangerine color with about a finger of foam that doesn't last. The aroma is unpleasant. It reminds me of boiling green beans. I love the taste of boiling green beans, but not the aroma. I did not love the taste of this beer. It tart in the finish, and maybe there's an implication of hops, but there just isn't much going on. The body is watery and slight. Meh.
