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.

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.

hopscotch (10184) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2003
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.

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 wouldn’t be so hard on this had they called it anything else - it’s not a bad beer; I just don’t think it tastes anything like a true Weizen.

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?

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.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 Another miss by Michelob. +++Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a slightly - only slightly - cloudy orange golden color with a small white head that quickly disappears. So the first thought here is that it certainly does not look much like a hefeweizen - although the appearance in not ugly - just a bit out of style. The aroma is grainy with a hint of citrus, and given the lowered expectation I gathered from the appearance, it was quite surprisingly well scented. The hopes rise only to be dashed by that first taste. I guess there is some detectable wheat like flavor to this brew, but it is vague and watery at best. There is a bit of bitterness and that vague macro skunk to the flavor. This feature lingers on the aftertaste. The citrus that was hinted at in the scent was nowhere to be found. Sadly, if I had not known what I was drinking I would have been hard pressed to declare the product a hefeweizen based on the flavor alone.
