Somewhat sour middle note that adds to overall interest. Wife enjoyed greatly, I found more of a curiousity.

SarkyNorthener (1690) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle thanks to s_hartshorne. Hazy pale amber beer with large head. Aroma of wheat and a little bubblegum. Taste is bubblegum, some hints of spice and wheat. Ok beer, a little bland.

wimpyjoe (3484) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Golden-orange with a small head. Has a light hefeweien quality, but not up to central European standards it is modelled on. Slightly thin but easy to drink.

Bottle rhythm+booze 01/08/13. Hazy orange amber colour thin white head. Aroma is very weak. Taste is slight citrus very creamy good taste but nothing really to grab your attention. Decent body medium carbonation just enough. 200th beer rating was hoping for more.

COMRADEJOSH (287) - Ft Hood, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Slightly musty or bread aroma good cloudy golden appearance. A sweet malty taste with hints of citrus where a German hefe would have the banana but a good solid hefeweizen nonetheless.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 22, 2013
355ml bottle into a weizen glass; served cold. Aroma: Sour and yeasty. A little citrus, like tangerine or mandarins. Appearance: Very hazy, opaque, sunburst body with a quickly-dissipating white head. Taste: Very very strong wheat flavor. No spice or fruit like a witbier, but also no cloves or banana or other typical hefe flavors. The hefeweizen label was somewhat misleading, but it is still tasty. Palate: Light-medium body with moderate-high effervescence. Finish is moderately long and alllllllllllllllll wheat. Overall: A good one for sure. Surprised! Simple, straightforward, and satisfying.
