5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle:   Clear golden, thin to modreate white head, a few rings of lacing.   Rather clear for a Wheat Ale.   Grassy, hay, and straw on the nose.   Doesn’t smell like much of a Wheat Beer.   Very basic wheaty aspect on the tongue.   Feels hefty, warming, certainly bigger than most American Wheats.   Also feels somewhat mealy and cardboard oriented.   Ugh, thats two beers in a row.   Not much about this screens Wheat Beer.   For a Wheat Beer it is subtle, certainly warming, and very mealy.   Not what I was expecting at all.   Lingering mealy based wheaty malts.   This one is an odd duck, not all that American Wheat like, not German at all.   Even Pyramids Imperial Hefe was more Wheat Based.   This one just doesn’t strike a chord with me.   Not bad, but certainly not all that entertaining either.

Now I can get into this kind of american wheat beer. good body and a solid flavor contribute to this being better than almost any "regular" hefe. recommended."

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2002
Deep cloudy ’Chill Hazed’ amber to orange color, the head is creamy and beige, the lace is in sheets. Nose is earhty, citrus, malt and quite pleasant. Sweet start, the top is light, the finish is nicely hopped, somewhat dry, lightly acidic. the sweetness carries through to the end, which bothers me a bit, but all in all a quite drinkable beer. Not the best ’Dopple Weizen’ I’ve tasted, but most assuredly not the worst.

AgentSteve (1627) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Pours hazy pale golden with a thin white head. The nose is sweet and slightly fruity. The flavor is not as sweet but goes more dry. Decent lasting finish.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2008
Draft at Marin. Clear gold, white head. Typical hefe aroma is a bit subdued. Same flavor, very clean but very mild. Medium body, balanced, easy drinking. Decent.

Somehow I was thinking this was a dunkle or weizenbock. Or perhaps I should say WISHING. Pretty much what it says it is, which isn’t bad, but none TOO attractive to me. An American wheat bee at roughly double strength - not bad, not alluring enough for someone that was looking for perhaps too much after sharing two other bombers.

I, too, thought this was going to be a dunkelweizen. Poured cloudy orange-gold with a lot of brown sediment in the end. Strong off-white head. Aroma is musty wheat with some clove. No banana or bubblegum in the taste. Lots of wheat with... hops? In a hefe? All in all, this was a good beer, but not really what I had in mind for a German Hefe.
