COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A crisp, refreshing American style Hefeweizen that is brewed with the best ingredients the Northwest has to offer. We use 50% locally sourced two-row pale malt and 50% locally grown northwest malted wheat well above the required 30% wheat additions to be called a wheat beer. This Northwest style Hefeweizen is unfiltered for a "cloudy" appearance and brewed with plenty of Yakima valley hops yielding a wonderful citrus finish, delicious with or without a lemon garnish.

I had this one a while back and forgot to rate it. A terribly unbalanced, off-kilter wheat beer. A very poor example of the style. Pours a lightly golden flavor, with a bit of a sweet honey-like aroma. The taste is way too light and slightly cloying at points. Bland and boring and I expected more.

Had this on draft. Orange hazy unfiltered look with creamy head. Light aroma of wheat and citrus. Small body with a little more hops than widmer hefe. This is a very american northwest hefe and it's very plain, nothing spectacular.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2003 I can only imagine that Mac and Jack brewed this purely due to the popularity Hefes have gained with Widmer and Pyramid. Very mild, a bit grainy, but almost too mild to find even that little bit of wheat. This was a let down, but just like the porter this is purely overlooked with the African Amber out there on the market.

Slightly milky color. Good with a lemon. Good wheat beer, but nothing outstanding. Definitely a good summer beer.

Light cloudy brown-orange in appearance exuding a faint wheat aroma. Smooth, thirst quenching and refreshing, but weaker than many American Wheats. An excellent summer refresher, but deficient in body.
