Slightly brownish orange liquid with quick fading head, mellowed citric aroma, slightly tart, medium-heavy carbonation, a light easy finish. This a drinkable, light flavor/aroma brew. Not bad.

Ewww! Bottle from Fred Meyer in Portland, OR--Poured a dull hazy golden-amber body with a dying white head. Sticky artificial honey nose with dumb wheatiness and drab grains. No phenolic attitude of a Bavarian hefe and less hop bite than say Widmer or Pyramid. A waste of wheat, basically.

Hazy gold pour. Wheat, yeast, citrus and just a hint of hop flavor. Pretty standard but refreshing.

Ok another Henry,s product..yes I am getting rather short of funds! Ok right away i spot a weird thing on the label it says in big letters "hefeweizen" then underneath in much smaller "honey brewed lager"...now what a dilemma..how should i judge this beer? Ok the beer actually looks like a dark hefeweizen actually not to bad. smell however seems to mix the styles there is some weheat but mostly lager hopping. The taste is pretty average..not too bad..sweet on the front then gets a smallish bitterness at the back of the tongue..more lager like..the sweetness does seem to be honeyish. Average mouthfeel Pretty drinkable but Im still confused as to what this beer wants to be..if it Stated Honey Lager..i would say it was pretty darn good for the style ( miles better than Michelobs version for example)..but as a hefe..its weak

Hazy gold. Fruit and wheat in the aroma. The same is found in the flavor. Simple wheat beer.

Light cloudy orange. Sweet from the honey, but not much in the way of wheat. Lots of metallic taste coming through as expected.

Bottle, brought back from Washington for me by my friend Rachel. I had no idea this was brewed by Full Sail, which strikes me as a bit odd, as I can actually remember the Weinhard’s line being sold in Canada back about 12-15 years ago. Opened this one due to the forum post on Hefes. Pours cloudy orange, with a thick, though not very persistent white head, looks very Hefe-ish. Nose is simple, tart citrus and sour malt, kinda reminds me of sourdough bread a bit, I find Cascade hops an interesting choice for a Hefe, but there’s no trace of them here, nor are there any honey notes in evidence. There is an odd green-olive note here, which I tried to dismiss, but as this warms has become unmistakable, and is starting to distract me from the rest of the beer. Flavours are citrussy, and some hop bitterness shows through in the mid-palate, as well as a generic "yeasty" character, but non of the banana-clove notes that I would normally associate with a Hefe. Finish is mildly spicy, and I suppose this is refreshing, and dry enough (at least its not an over-sweet mess like Blue Moon, or any of that rot), but very middle of the road and pedestrian. Would not purchase again, there are far too many excellent wheat ales on the market for reasonable prices that I would have to pass over, in order to purchase this one again. Forgettable.

12 oz bottle. Faintly spicy nose, faint wheat. Pours yellowish orange with little head, decent lacing. Taste is salty, somewhat medicinal--not at all like a hefeweizen, although I taste a hint of wheat in the aftertaste. Carbonation is high. Kind of weird and boring at the same time, if that makes any sense.
