Not a bad hefeweizen. Typical US filtered version. I prefer the Pyramid IPA much more.

Good neutral tasting wheat. Some bannana flavours. Not high in carbonation, which I like. There are definitley better American hefes out there though.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2004 Flavorless but refreshing if overchilled. Slightly warmer reveals wheat and caramel maltiness. Good quencher.

I remember someone telling me that this was just an unfiltered version of the Wheaten Ale. That cannot be true, since that beer is quite good and this one is quite lifeless.

Yet another crappy American hefe-weizen. I will never be a fan of this style.

This is not the best wheat beer I have had ...by quite some distance. Does have a nice bready aroma but that is about it ( I wish they would be a little more adventurous with their hopping in this brew). I had to put a lemon in it to make it better.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2004 Light cloudiness; deep yellowish, gold-orange. Thin, fading head. Lively carbonation; thin and light texture. Couldn't really find the typical banana and clove. More like an "American Wheat" than a Hefeweizen. Light malts, slightly sticky. Mild bitterness (herbal). Finished dry on the tongue and cloying in the throat. Pinch of citrus, but falls short. Kind of bland and boring.

This beer just flat out needs some character. Nearly non-existant nose with watered down maltiness.Maybe a little something can be coaxed out at the bottom of the glass but this was definetly one of the worst wheat’s i’ve ever had.

Just not what I expected. Overmalted and got downright grody after a couple. Looked pretty good and smelled pretty good though. Overall not too bad and not too good.

It was good. not exceptional looking, and slightly over more malt then i would have liked. nothing exceptional but a good beer. i had it after the hacker-pschor hefeweizen which was much better
