2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Peach-colored beer with virtually no activity and little head. The vaguest of yeast aromas, but the flavor has nothing that would lead you to the Hefeweizen label. It's malty and the same vague yeast as the aroma, but nothing to distinguish it very much from your other standard Miller beers.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orange amber color. Hazy with a thin head. Aroma of wheat malt and honey. Some cereal like grain too. Crisp wheat with a little residual honey sweetness. Very carbonated. A hint of cardboard. Somewhat lager like finish. Perhaps a hint of lemon.

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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to riversideAK for the chance to taste this beer, you rock Alex! Cloudy orangy yellow. Gunk on bottom of 12 oz bottle provides a hypnotizing swirling pour. Aroma is just plain beery and lacks any of the bubblegum or banana smells so common with manyhefes. Creamy thin head that lasts. A little bitter initially on the mouth roof but that fades during thesession. Again, in taste, the flavor also lacks banana and bubblegum and is more laid back. Does have some gentle hefe flavors and is rather well behaved. Mild to medium bitterness does continueand I’m not sure if its due to some hops or malt. Finish leaves a mild medicine taste on the back of the throat. Tho not much in hefe character, it has enough personality to let you know this is more than a ubiquitous pale yellow beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle... Poured cloudy pale yellowish with a thin head. Terrible rendition of the style. Just completely bland, too much just plain malt and watery and little honey sweetness. No dimension.

The Classic Dark was so good I had hopes for this. Cloudy yellow without much head. Nose was citurs. Mouthfeel a little thin. Flavors were malty with a touch of hops. Finish a litlte light. Not bad, but nothing unusual going on here.

16oz draft 5/13/07(Sharp’s Roaster & Ale house known here as Sharps Roaster Hefe)-A cloudy yello body with a decent white head. Aroma of wheat and slight banana. Taste of nothing that resembles a hefe.
