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.

Sampler at Oggi’s in Garden Grove. Straw colored watery beer, bland even for a hefeweisen. Not a strong point of Oggi’s lineup.

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 (1314) - 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 (13755) - 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.

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.
