COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Northwest style Hefeweizen is light-bodied, pale amber in color, fruity and refreshing, with a malty wheat character. The flavor is light and crisp with a touch of malt sweetness. Whistling Pig Wheat is unfiltered, with the classic cloudy appearance which characterizes the best Hefeweizens brewed in the Great Pacific Northwest. Whistle Pigs are marmots, small furry critters who live in the high country all around Leavenworth, WA, with especially high concentrations in nearby Whistling Pig Meadow.

Nooooooope. This found it’s way into my german hefeweizen tasting. Tastes like burnt grains and sour wood mixed with a bud light.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weihenweizen (1678) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2014
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.

50belair (2210) - Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2014
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.

penstemon (127) - - MAY 25, 2014
Pours slightly hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is grain, wheat, musty, lemon and overripe orange, a hint of band-aid phenols, slight banana, metallic. Taste is wheat, slightly toasted grains, muted orangey citrus, a bit of banana/clove, and slight hop bitterness. Thin-med palate, soft carbonation. Very light on the typical phenolic hef flavors. Not great.

Davhgbrew (934) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2014
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.

Beese (1625) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2013
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.
