Not very good. It lacked in most areas. Faint aroma that somwwhat represented a hefeweizen. The color was a golden yellow with a white head. The taste was bland with a slight wheat presence, but nothing unique. I donít think the unfiltered characteristic did a thing for it. The fact that they recommend serving with a lemon says something about the lack of flavor. Not one I would choose again.

Bottle. Aroma is yeasty cheese and citrusy hops. Appearance is hazy yellow. Taste is true to aroma as mix of mild sweet and sour. Palate is light-bodied with fairly thin and slightly slick texture. Carbonation is soft and finish is short and yeasty. Overall, true to the style but not particularly robust in any category.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. Nose is faint. While I like the beer, it does lack hefe character - yeasty, bubblegum is lacking. Enjoy it for what it is - a good beer.

Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, wheat, yeast and hint of banana. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long wheat and slightly banana finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Jabah (217) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
I wasnít too impressed with this being a microbrew and all. Itís basically an average wheat beer at best. Not much color (a light golden yellow), not much flavor. A little bit cloudy but thin and semi-clear. This was the first time I bought Harpoon, so not the best first impression.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 1/15/2015. Pours hazy deep golden color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, banana, white grape, wheat, bread, light clove, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Okay aromas with solid balance of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt notes; with decent strength. A bit too fruity/slightly metallic in the nose. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, banana, white grape, wheat, bread, herbal, grass, light clove, and yeast earthiness. Light yeast spice/wheat tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, banana, white, grape, wheat, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a solid pale wheat ale style. All around good robustness and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

12 oz bottle served in pint glass [from notes]. Some sediment in bottle; added to glass. Give very mild aste, I recommend you give the bottle a swirl mid-pour to mix in the yeasty sediment and add flavor. Wheat beer not a favorite category for this reviewer A - moderately cloudy light yellow gold; white head with some staying power S - very mild standard wit beer with no off-notes and faint fruity notes T - very mild; "wit beer light". Taste is good but intensity should be higher. Nice balance of bitter, sweet and sour. Clean finish. M - light, soft and fizzy (but not objectionably so) D- easy and pleasant to drink. Very good for thirst quenching or to accompany mildly flavored foods; not bold or complex enough to hold interest as a sipper.

Not a strong hefeweizen. A light yellow hazy pour with white head. Taste and aroma are both a bit watered down with sweet citrus and pine and dry wheat/yeast taste. A somewhat dry aftertaste with some citrus.

"Definitely an American wheat and not a true hefe. Wheat, grain and citrus are the dominant players in the flavor and aroma. Pretty mediocre across the board - just didnít do anything for me."
