Lat me preface this by saying I hate wheat beers. However of the few I have tried, this was one of the better ones, if it’s any consolation.

This is a beer that is somewhat representative of the German Wheat beers, but the taste has much more citrus in it than most. Not bad, but not too wonderful.

Has a clouded yellow color and a sour smell. Taste was also pretty sour and finished pretty smooth. Overall not the best wheat that I have had.

A hefe should have a good head, this doesn't. Pale golden color, malty almost a corn whisley aroma. A little sweet, no real citrus taste. Aftertaste is harsh and bitter. Where's the wheat? This beer seems to be more like an American wheat version, not a very good one per se.

LIght golden colour fast to disapate white head. Sour wheat flavour. Dry mouth feel. Sourness predominant. Sour aroma. Sour tang. It's like the dog went for a walk and didn't come home.. slightly vingery as Cathy has pointed out to me.

Weak and straw-like, this hefe has no ooomph. Pours pale and thin, and the flavor is weak hints of banana and citrus. Lacks the backbone of a good hefeweizen. Suitable for parties, but not much else.

Having spent time in Europe, I have had several real hefeweizens. This ain’t one. The literal translation of the term hefeweizen is "yeast wheat". Traditionally unfiltered, the beers are cloudy with a bananna aroma, and a good malt backbone to balance out the aroma. This beer had only a slight haze that indicated some kind of filtration, and poured a 1/4" head that vanished in seconds. No lacing, few tracers. This beer would be ok for someone who has never had a true hefeweizen. If they decide they like the style, then they could move on to true hefe beer

Bottled. 120A08. Beer is cloudy, medium-orange-gold colored. Head is initially large, white, frothy. Diminishes quickly and almost totally.<P>The aroma is malty with moderate notes of powdery smelling, cereal and toasted grain; Hoppy with a light note of lemon zest; Yeasty with a moderate note of banana/clove, light note of stucky bread dough; Trace of orange zest and corinader <P>The flavor is lightly sweet, moderately acidic/dry/juicy, lightly bitter with a moderately long, lightly acidic, trace bitter finish. Metallic aftertaste. Squeaky spice-particle residue on the roof of the mouth.<P>The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.
<P>This style is about lean, little gems, this sample is like a dirty coin.

Tasted at Keystone....11Kft above sea level. Was confused with this beer, not a true Hefeweizen, not terribly composed, too dark, head not right, aroma strange and palate confusing. Drank it down, but only out of spite.
