A solid hefeweizen that shows all of the things one should be. A little dry with a refreshing taste. Requires just a touch of lemon which brings out the perfect fruit flavor.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [bottle - Great European Beerfest 8, Sharp Edge Tavern - East Liberty, PA] Poured a cloudy copper color with not much of a head. Mostly wheat in the aroma with a touch of citrus zest. Good wheaty taste with a slight sweet touch at the end. Very bubbly and light. I agree with robertsreality that it was more of a witbier than a hefeweizen.

Well not much to say about this one other than it is balanced and easy to drink. Great alone or with food. Often overlooked at the store, but should not be. Pick some up and see for yourself.

Nice carbonation and great head. The flavor is buttery bananna and estery goodness, but there is also a hollowness to the taste. I think this is best explained by the lack or limit of the spices one usually associates with a Hefe. In so doing, this beer is offering more malt and yeast flavors than most. And while light-bodied and hay-scented (not the fern) it is a wholesome and refreshing beverage. This beer would taste best after a day of bucking hay under the hot summer sun. Good Things.

An interesting example of a German Hefeweizen- the banana and clove flavors are toned down, and tangy, somewhat sweet wheat malt tends to dominate with notes of apricot and peach. A solid hazy-bodied yellow-orange beer.
