3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 OZ bottle, drank at room temp. A nice attempt by an American brewery for the style. Iíll gave another a shot a bit colder and see if I like it better.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange in color, white head and decent lace, the nose is malt, earthy, slightly citrus. Front is sweet, the top thin, the finish is acidic, dry, nicely hopped. Drinkable and fresh tasting beer, decent but not great.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hmmm...smells like a hefeweizen; looks like a hefeweizen; doesnít taste like a hefeweizen. Only flavors in there are malt and yeast. No dry finish, no spice. Nice hazy golden color though. Looked & smelled promising before falling flat on the first sip. Iíll pass on this - and most of their line - in the future.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very dissapointing hefeweizen. None of the qualities one would hope for - no citrus, no spice, no banana, hardly any wheat quality at all.

Surprisingly enjoyable. Crisp and flavorful, but a little too dry of a finish.

this beer had a promising start...nice appearance, decent head...the aroma was there for a good hefeweizen (albeit a little subtle), but the flavor was just lacking...not enough of the typical german wheat flavor.

Man, why make a middle of the road wheat like this? It claims to step up to the plate, íin the tradition of German hefesí, Címon. If your gonna pay for a heffe premium, reach for the Paulaner, the Aventinus, the Schneider, and thats the stuff. It has some citrusy flavors, the usual action, didnít hold a head too long, and letís you toss in the goody at the bottom, but donít hold this up as a shining example of the form, let me down a little.

A hazy medium yellow. Decent head. Sweet nose of wheat and clove. Lively in mouth, turns very creamy as you swish it around. Banana,wheat,spices and balance make this one smooth,drinkable,satisfying damn good hefe. Drink on boys.
