presario (4705) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 13, 2003
Slightly cloudy darker orange-yellow with a lasting light white head. Very light aroma. Sweet scent but hard to catch. Very light flavour. Very slight honey and yeast flavours. A lite dustiness in the palate which is too light. Not much in the way of hops, spice or character.

BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 24, 2003
Cloudy dark yellow with a small white head. Smells hoppy like a domestic. Taste hops and maybe some citrus, grapefruit. Taste to much like a domestic. Good summer beer though.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2009 Other than looking like a good hefe there is little good about this. Very wheaty, some Bud-like funk. Untasty. First had this beer in 2003 and scored it a 3.7 Musty orange-brown. Definetely the best wheat beer I’ve had. Doesn’t upset my stomach like other wheat beers. Would get again.

beerbumble (42) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 23, 2003
Fairly dark for a wheat beer. Great filmy orange color. Not much aroma. Good wheat taste. Not a bad beer.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2003
Not a bad hefe at all. Not overyly sweet and not overly citrusy (is that a word?) Both of which I think this brew could have used more of. I will still by Widmer though.

jedimasternick (96) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 19, 2002
It is about the same overall as Leinenkugels Honey Weiss Bier with a slight attempt to taste more like the true German Wheat beers.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 17, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2005 Very light haze, average head and lacing. In the nose there’s adjuncts, light wheat, barely any hops. They’re ripping off the hefeweizen name and the reinheinspebot law is spewing up distaste. Way downhill since the last time I had this.

beerguy101 (5287) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 17, 2002
Medium gold color, slightly cloudy, small head. A light bodied hefeweizen. Mild malts and hops. Nice flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly sweet, some residual carbonation.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2002
Color a hazy golden-honey, with a decent feathery head. Aroma is slightly sweet, not immediately oweing to its malt or honey components, but consistent with its mildly sweet palate. Hops and carbonation are both light; finish is very slightly dry and tangy. This is very much an American-style effort on a commercial hefe, and it is rather better than I anticipated. I drank it both with and without a squeeze of lime--it was quite drinkable either way, the citrus somewhat counterbalancing its slightly sweet flavor bias. This is pretty good for a big-brewery product, and at a competetive price.
