This bottled brew poured a small sized head of frothy large sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was other and dark yellow orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild bready aroma with a wheat note . Its mouth feel is initially tingly with a lingering tingly palate and a smooth aftertaste. Its flavor contained malt wheat bready notes.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 8, 2005
(12 oz bottle: Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) Not a lot of wheat flavor, more just a generic, cheap micro-wheat. Light sweetness, minimal hops. Seems to be a bit past its prime though, as I’m picking up a bit of breadiness, plus some cardboard in the finish. And actually, the nose is sweet and bready as well. Light-to-medium in body. The color is a muddy golden and kind of sickly looking. The small, fizzy, whitish head dissipated rapidly down to a small ring. Not very good.

Not a great hefeweizen, Far too carbonated, produces a biting acid on the tongue, I don’t like that aspect, the aroma is a little weak as well. On a positive note, it does taste pretty decent, although bland. I don’t think I would get this one again.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Hazy/murky dull golden color with a smaller off white head. Sweet wheat and floral hops aromas. Grape-nuts and light hops flavors. Hints of citrus. Another boring american wheat.

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - JAN 14, 2005
Bottle. Poured a small fizzy white head that fully diminished, sparse lacing, fine-small sized bubbles, carbonated, hazy, and a yellow hue. The aroma was malty and sweet. The flavor was sweet and malty. None of the typical aromas and flavors for this beer style. Tingly palate. Light-medium body.

3fourths (8032) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2005
12oz bottle. Slightly murky medium yellow color, some yeast particles visibly floating. Light sweet grainy lemon and wheat flavor, a little bit like plastic, or perhaps the bottle that I’m tasting. Drinkable, refreshing and sweet, but not the ideal hefe. Light corn aroma turns my nose away, however.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 11, 2004
Ya know this isnt all that bad, its just boreing and bland even for a wheat beer. Thin all around with just a dab of wheat in the taste and nose. Again, thin and boreing

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 31, 2004
UPDATED: APR 3, 2005 Very cloudy gold color with a large white head. The aroma is lemon, and some cheap candy. The taste is very sour for the style. Abosolutely terrible. The majority of this went right down the drain. Normally American wheats are boring, but this is just awful.
