3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is the strangest Hefewiesen I have ever had. Perhaps it’s the alpine-style designation. It had quite a bite to it and was rather spicy with a hoppy finish. Missing was the creamy texture and subtly sweet aromas of banana and clove. Is this beer 1/3 pale ale? Not a bad combination. Refreshing and tasty. It had the cloudiness of a hefe with a small amount of residue in the bottom of the bottle. The head was small for a hefe. Plenty of lacing and retention. A surprising beer. I will buy it again now that I know what to expect. This beer does not fit neatly into any category.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gold color. Corn like aroma. Light white lacing. Sips with slight adjunct flavors or corn, slight malt sweetness and flavors of fruit. This is not a brew I would recommend. Tastes mass produced and forced. Flavors of poor ingredients. Sessionable, but undesirable.

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.

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.
