COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our American take on the German Hefeweizen. Unlike most hefes, you wont get a bunch of fruit and spice masking the true flavor of the beer. Unfiltered, yet clean, crisp and refreshing with just enough hop bitterness to skip the lemon wedge.

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 7, 2013
On tap at E.J Phair Concorde pub. A hazy orangey yellow beer with a small, white head. The aroma is weak, with pale malts, some tropical fruits and wheat hints. Fruity flavor with some malty sweetness. Sweet orange and some melon. Medium body, a tad flat. Short fruity finish. Overall, quite boring, but with refreshing qualities. 130807

Nik925 (759) - USA - JUN 10, 2010
(tasted 3/14/08 going through some old ratings of EJ Phair since it looks like they are not brewing anymore.) The wheat was really pronounced. A strong metallic taste was the main flavor though. Rough to finish, this wasn’t good at all.

HighWine (954) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. Hazy straw color, thin white head. No nose to speak of. Taste isn’t pleasant at first but softens. Grassy/corriander flavors in the mouth. The aftertaste is better than the beer itself.

Daft. Golden beer with a white head. Light malt aroma with a bit of citrus and wheat. Citrus and malt flavor with a little wheat and more citrusy hops than you’d expect. Medium-light bodied. refreshing. Hops and malt linger with some wheat.
