COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden in color, light and refreshing with a citrus flavor, Clipper is bolder than most N.W. wheat beer. Made with malted wheat, pale barley malt and quality European hops.

This has a bit of a spicy yeastiness, with a crisp clean mouthfeel, somewhat sour, with some lemony acidity. Very typical.

3fourths (7801) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2005
Draft at the brewery
Very cloudy and deep yellow in color with a big, billowy tall ice-cream head. Flavor is a little bland, stale, soapy... some sour lemon, but not tart. Paper-like, I guess, like chewing on notebook paper. Milky, yeasty nose. Simple.

on tap at the jolly roger in seattle. typical dull american wheat, at least a bit zesty in the finish but had no real yeasty qualities

Hazy yellow-gold witha dense white head and nice lacing. Esthery wheat and light banana in the nose. Nutty, esthery, banana flavors. Sweet residual flavors, medium light palate.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Hazy blonde with thick white head & lacing. The aroma is malty with some fresh yeast & hops. The flavor is tangy with 2-row & wheat with fruit. Finishes wheaty & lightly watery.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2004
Tap@The Jolly Roger. Typical American wheat. Kinda hoppy, kinda, tangy, kinda lemony and pretty much kinda nothing, but easy to drink, and not all that bad.

BillKismet (3295) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2003
Awesome appearance of nectar/cloudy banana liquer and creamed top with fine lacing cling to the glass. However, aside from the appearance, the brew was insipid. Little detectable aroma with a clean, bland flavor that might have held some banana in addition to the wheat and a soupcon of sourness. Macro drinkers might find this flavorful, but to me, it was boring. This is closer to an Am wheat than a German one.

Crit (3245) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2003
Light fruity nose. Faintly fruit malt palate with decent body for the style. I also had it at the Archer

A very strong hefeweizen, with a sour aroma and a flavor that I could only describe as slighty souring pinapple. If Widmer Brother’s is a smooth Hefeweizen, this is perhaps a little opposite, offering a more alternative flavor charecter inherrant in quite a few Maritime brews. Definately an experience, but not nessasarily refreshing.
