Notes from summer of í04. Bottle: Straw colored hazy pour with a smaller white head. More grainy than wheat, no real hops taste. Very faint aroma of grain. Not real impressive.

12oz bottle provided by R. McCarty. Malty with brief spice on first blush. Definite honey notes but hollow body and thin mouthfeel. Fades quickly.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2006
Pours a hazy light amber with a slight white head that quickly diminishes to a ring of foam. Not a lot in the aroma: a bit of yeast, a very little fruit. Medium body with somewhat fizzy carbonation. The taste is lightly bread/citrus sweet. Just a touch of spice on the relatively quick, dry finish. Definitely from the American branch of the hefeweizen tree. Not much going on in this beer in the way of charactery, but itís probably a good candidate for serving very cold with a wedge of lemon on a very hot day.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2006 Wheat beers are among my favorite so I am extremly critical of mass-brewed attempts. This one is ok, nothing special. Looks nice in the glass, not a great aroma. Citrusy, kind of sweet - interesting mix of flavors.

beeaman (16) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 23, 2006
pours a cloudy hazelnut w/ a medium caramel head that lingers a few minutes. an aroma of oats & flowers. tastes watered down compared to more hearty hefeís ive had. but still appealing, nonetheless. a little more bitter than iíd hoped for, but not overpowering. clean mouthfeel & a somewhat appealing aftertaste. boosting overall score because for 80 cents a bottle, itís a value.

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

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Aroma was basic crop fields of wheat and corn. Light orange color body with white head. Flavor had a metalic feel to it. Some fruit flavor was trying to come into play but it was faint. I guess there is a reason this is sold for 92 cents a bottle.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2005
Of the three Weinhards that I had at Brianís wedding this was the one with the most flavor. Tasted like a basic hefeweizen microbrew, without the bursting flavor that something from Belgium or say an Oberon might have.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2005
This beer pours a hazy yellowish slightly orange color with a thin white head and minimal lacing. The aroma is wheaty and slightly cardboardy with sweet fruity hints. The flavor is light to medium bodied. Heavily wheaty with a cardboard like sweetness in the finish. Ever-so-slightly medicinal in its approach, but not bad for what it is. Sweet, dry finish, lots of malt, and big breadyness with a hint of lemon. Heavy carbonation levels.
