COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This American Style Hefeweizen (pronounced He-fe-vite-zin) is unfiltered and naturally cloudy from the generous use of imported wheat malt. It has a refreshing, bready flavor and a distinct creamy, taste and texture. This lightly hopped beer is very enjoyable and easy to drink with a great wheat after taste.

Tap. Pours cloudy pale golden, tiny white head, some lacing. Aroma is very light and non descript. Flavor is light sweet, wheat, lemon, not much going on here. Light body, bit of metal. Double meh.

On draft at brewpub
A passable hefeweizen gets slightly higher marks than it possibly deserves for being one of the better draft handles. A run of the mill beer is more American than German. If I were desperate for a wheat fix this would fit the bill. Ultimately though I think it misses the mark.

Aroma / Appearance - A golden lemon base looks the part of a hefeweizen with a soft texture. Wheat, lemon butter, toast, and other lightweight flavors float in the air.

Flavor / Palate - Honey, almonds, and wheat warm the tongue for a second. A brief transition sweeps to a wheaty finish. The soft texture sticks in the throat for only a second before it begins to fade. This is not that memorable overall but is simply your average brewpub wheat.

American have and in no way does it come you even close to the German hefe but it’s not bad for a brew pub.

Barreras (980) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Pours a cloudy yellow color with an orange tint. Aroma of citrus, mostly orange with a bready, grainy flavor. A "dirty" hefenweizen style beer that was little watery.

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 16, 2011
A: The beer pours a slightly cloudy pale straw color with a sizable white head. S: Not surprisingly, no banana or clove or bubblegum aromas here. Instead, green apple, lemon, and sour wheat. I don’t really even get any bread or malt aromas. T: Tastes very much like a green Jolly Rancher. Big time green apple flavor with some lemon, lemon zest, and sour wheat flavors. Grass flavors come out of nowhere and there is a strong astringency to it. M: Light to medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Just bad. Avoid this one.

BeerandBlues2 (9693) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Tap at Point Loma. Pours hazy yellow with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, cookie), light hops (earthy), and average esters (banana, citrus) with notes of clove. Flavor is heavy malt (bread, cookie), light hops (earthy), and average esters (banana, citrus) with notes of clove. Light body, low warmth and creaminess, medium carbonation with a dry finish.

A:pale gold and straw colored. Slightly cloudy.minimal head without lacing. S:slightly sweet without much of the hefeweizen smells that are so typical. T: bitter and not at all sweet--no hefe yeast-driven flavors. Not good. M:very thin and dry. Minimal carbonation. D: not drinkable or refreshing. Avoid.

Ungstrup (29332) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2010
Draft. A hazy golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of malt and wheat as well as lighter notes of banana. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and wheat, but also lighter notes of corn and banana, leaidng to a dry wheaty finish. Boring.

Draught at Oggi’s, Sta. Clarita, CA. Cloudy golden, no head. Neutral nose. Fairly sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel and medium body. Light wheat malt flavour, some lemon from the wedge dumped in it, otherwise a neutral wheat ale with no hefeweizen characteristics.

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Tap at oggis in Glendale. Very very cloudy yellowish gold pour. Barely any head. Lots of wheat, very light on the spice aroma. Flavor is yeasty and wheaty...lacks the good spice I would expect. Drinkable? Yes. Good? Maybe.
