3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy dark straw color with a smaller off white head. Aromas of "grapenuts" and sugar. Light sweet wheat and touch of citrus. Slightly better an average american wheat.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
