Gription79 (2227) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Had on draft at the brewery. Pours cloudy with white head. A big nose of sulfur and green apple maybe it is from the fruity wheat. There is doughy, tart, dry, wheaty. This is a bland beer, but I am not a fan of American wheat beers.

Pale straw, cloudy, white head. Aroma of grainy and spicy wheat malt, yeast. Flavor of spicy wheat, slightly tart yeasty character, fairly dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Had this at the Trolley Square location. Received in a perfect pint look-alike. 2.5 A: Moderately hazed golden wheat color. One finger of frothy white head. Retention is poor for the style and no lacing is left. 2.5 S: Not a lot going on here. Wheat and some neutral maltiness, but no typical hefe aromas. 2.0 T: Like the nose, the taste is nearly flavorless and little evidence of this being a hefe. 3.5 M: At least it feels like a hefe. Ligher medium body. Good hefe carbonation. Could be creamier, but alright. 1.5 D: Not a great beer by any standards. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-23-2012 03:05:36

Ibrew2or3 (6760) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Poured up on tap at the Desert Edge with a nice murky opaque deep pale gold body and white head. The mild aroma is banana and grainy malts and little else. The taste is a mix of sweet banana, fresh grainy malts, a wort like sensation and then a thin ring of sweet apricot flavored bubble gum. It has a nice residual sort of fruity citrus finish to it. Nice Hefe.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Draft @ Brewpub: Hazy blonde, light head and lacing. Nose of wheat and husk with a grainy and thin overall impression. A chewy body though with some big "wheat" flavors yet a thin finish.

omhper (19187) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Cloudy golden, minimal head. Neutral nose. Dryish and fruity with farly clean, spritzy mouthfeel. Fairly light bodied with straighfoward flavour, lacking all esters or phenols expected in a hefeweizen. An OK wheat ale.

Pours a hazy golden yellow. Aromas of bread/grains/ and some citrus. Had a taste of yeasty grains with some spice and citrus.

OK for a Hefe, not my kind of beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy light orange with a medium white head. The aroma was heavy wheat and some citrus, mostly from the slice of orange put in the beer probably. The taste was dominated by a ton of wheat and assorted grains, some light citrus also. Highly carbonated and quite easy to drink. A good hefe.
