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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can from Capital Market. Hazy golden brown in color. Lightly sweet and fruity nose. Maybe a hint of yeast character, if that. Bready and a little fruity up front. A little sweetness to go along with a touch of yeast. Sippable beer. Not a really good German hefe.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pint pour at Razzals. Two pints actually. I don’t think this beer deserves the hate it gets. I find this to be very American however in the hefe world. Doesn’t have the heavy yeast or banana flavor, but the beer still tastes good. I say if it tastes good, it is good. Pours a thick looking peach color with a patchy head and lacing. Nice lemon aroma. Light beer with a ton of wheat and lemon flavor. I’ve heard of this being served with lemon, but it’s got plenty without. Very refreshing. I say, nicely done.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow gold body with a one finger frothy white head. The nose is showing some light banana and clove spiciness with a soft wheat and yeast undertone. The flavor is a little less estery and spicy than I prefer for the style, it’s much heavier on the malt and wheat flavors instead of being derived from the yeast. It’s a little heavy and clingy. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a slightly sticky finish. Not a great Hefe, a little too heavy and flabby

Not a great example of a german hefe. the citrus and malt kinda overpower the yeast, which does show itself as a banana-like aroma and flavor. body is overcarbonated as well. meh...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle 1/20/15 (Courtesy of TerryR)-46° in Weizen Glass-Pours a murky yellowish orange with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, and slight banana. Taste of wheat, metallic, citrus, banana, and slight coriander. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad as there are better out there but this fills the gap.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brewpub in Everett
Cloudy blond color with generous head; unfortunately served with a lemon wedge. Simple wheat beer, without the character of a Hefeweizen, light fruity esters, and correct bitterness.
Easy but not bad.

Pours a milky/hazy copper colored yellow, typical of Hefeweizen. Giant bright white head. Very little aroma. Slight lemon and anise. Quite aqueous. Weak beer. Great beer for non beer lovers.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours hazy golden with off-white head. Aroma is grainy wheat, medium body, medium carbonation, and medium lacing. Taste is grainy malt, some crisp hops, bready, and some banana. Below average as far as hefes for me.

On tap at Anthony’s. Cloudy pale yellow pour with a white head. Lemon and yeast aromas. Mild lemon, citrus, and bready notes. Good body and mouthfeel. Not bad at all for a hefe. Creamy and smooth.
