2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 10-27-12. Clean, slightly floral, fresh aroma features a lemon scent. The smell is not as powerful as I would prefer and misses the bubblegum, banana, and clove elements of a real hefeweizen. Pours an effervescent gold with a moderate amount of light beige, nearly white head. I consumed the bottle via three small pours. The first two were clear. The last was a hazy, orangish color that looked like apricot nectar. Grassy, weak, and light taste features lemon. Light body. Watery. Slightly undercarbonated in the palate. This is definitely an American Wheat Ale, not a Hefeweizen, and, as such, it is a disappointment.

Draft at Tugboat in Portland, OR on 3 June 2013.
Poured a hazy yellow with a thick, but dissipating white head. Light aroma with light notes citrus notes and light cloves. Orange peal followed by grainy and yeasty flavours. More the US wheat ale, than a good Hefeweizen, but despite that it was pretty drinkable.

Tap. Hazy yellow pour. Light caramel and wheat in the aroma. Taste is the same with some bitterness. Cannot pull out any clove or banana. Okay.

Refreshing, and touched with malt sweetness, Whistling Pig Hefeweizen iis an unfiltered wheat bier with a slightly cloudy appearance. A nice light beer that goes well with lunch.

On draught at Molalla Brew Fest. Hazy golden color. Aroma of bread and light hop. Standard wheat and hop taste, not really a good hefeweizen flavor. Ok, but expected more.

Yellow color. Citrus flavor, but not terribly sweet. Stronger than average for a wheat beer. Ultimately pretty good.

Cloudy lemon yellow with light white lacing. Mild apple aroma. More apple flavour on a crisp palate with a soapy note on the finish. A different style of Hefe, would be really good but for the soapy notes.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
First time drinking a "nw style" hefe. Not as wheaty and banana as a German hefe
Still a good beer. Cloudy appearance with white head and no lacing. Flavor leaves something to be desired. Malty. Slight clove presence but no banana flavor unfortunately.
