Nose of wheat and banana. Hazy apricot color with a frothy white head. Medium bodied. Starts with citrus, a bit of wheat and yeast. Not finding hop, and the banana seems to have disappeared for the most part. Moderate carbonation. There are many better hefes, but as a strictly drinkable ale, this is not bad at all. After a long wait some bitter may try to surface through the citrus. Not sure about that.

Not Henry’s best beer. I like the golden lager better. This one is my least favorite in the Hefeweizen class. A lemon wedge is a necessity.

An unclear dark golden beer with a dense yellowish head. The aroma is sweet with notes of citrus and wheat. The flavor is sweet with notes of brewmash and wheat.

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.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2009
Poured a well-carbonated hazy medium gold colour, and a generous head which left some nice lacing. Aroma was not as expected, being slightly floral. Taste was clean but slightly bitter, not as I’d come to expect from a wheat beer; almost as if the honey was left out of this bottle. However, the aftertaste did sweeten up a tiny bit but still, this is no hefeweizen in the traditional sense.

This hef is nothing more than average. A bit similar to Pyramid’s. A good appearance - nice head and lace and golden in color, but jus lacking in taste. Well balanced, a bit on the malty side maybe and too sweet. I tried one of these with a lemon wedge in it to curb the sweetness, but that will only get you so far. Don’t cringe, it’s really not that bad, my friends do it with any hef. This is a good beer for the price (as is the case with any Henry) but nothing to write home about.

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.

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.
