Cloudy yellow with frothy white head. Some lacing on what remains of the head. Almost a bitter sweet flavor although nothing is very noticable. A little light and watery on the palate.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Murky, straw-colored lager. Tiny, creamy, white head.
Banana, wheat and straw in the nose.
Well-balanced flavor with notes of straw and butterscotch. Very thin, with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Crisp, clean finish.
Not good. Not bad. At least A.B. is making an effort.

Kudos for this effort...not a grea beer by any means, but at least they try. Just not enough body or full flavor to consider this a good brew. The really only time I have been in disagreement with Michael Jackson.

I ramp up the color score because there is some color and slight turbidity here. There is some yeasty, fruity aroma, and there is some citrusy, yeasty taste. Not a good hefeweizen. Why is Augie Busch so rich when he can't even make a style that any 2nd year homebrewer could make?

German brewers should sue A-B for this. To call this beer a Weizen is criminal. If I close my eyes and hold my nose, it almost begins to approach the worst German Weizen (drank warm). I wouldnít be so hard on this had they called it anything else - itís not a bad beer; I just donít think it tastes anything like a true Weizen.

At best a wheat ale. Just using some wheat and leaving the yeast does not qualify a beer to be a hefeweizen. Lacks íhefeí flavors and aromas.

As I work my way through the Michelob family this one is the black sheep. It actually has character and taste. Reminds me more of a West Coast weak pale ale than a wheat. Hoppy,not unpleasant aroma, dry, hoppy flavor with a bitter finish. Appearance is slightly cloudy.
