The standard by which all other wheat beers are judged. Our deliciously deranged American-Style Hefeweizen is an award winning take on this Bavarian classic. This refreshingly unfiltered wheat ale delivers a distinctively smooth flavor worth sharing with friends.

355ml bottle: 16 days out of date when poured into one of my Franziskaner Weissbier glasses on 17 Aug 2013. Looked just like it’s German brothers: cloudy yellow with a huge snowy white head, large amounts of carbonation bubbles rising through the body replenishing the head. The aroma however was not like it’s brothers from Germany, this was just wheaty and grainy, no vanilla or banana esters to find at all. Refreshing enough, but lacks flavour and depth. Mild hints of citrus notes, but not a lot of anything really.

"deliciously deranged" is a correct description by Pyramid. This is a tart drink with citrus and wheat notes and not much aroma. Decent lacing. Yellow/orange hazy color. Kind of a bland flavor with a spicy/tart hit at the end. Not very easy to drink...if it is really cold it might be refreshing and I’d choose it over Budweiser....but that’s not saying much.

Aroma is fruity. Appearance is golden and very cloudy. Taste fruity and effervescent. Light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaske utenfor Gml.Strand Øllager, delt med Einar: "The standard by which all other wheat beers are judged" påstår de frekt på etiketten. Det er bare kjekke markedsføringsgutter som greier å komme lengre fra sannheten, dette er virkelig tynenne saker. Lite aroma kombinert med beskjeden smak og totalt fravær av ettersmak. Truly a waste of time and money.

This is an okay american hefe. Wheaty and a mild. A tiny bit of citrus, but mostly just watery.

355ml bottle - Poured a hazy orange colour with a foam white head. Maybe a little lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is grain, grass, wheat, and citrus. Flavour is all the same with some citrus.

Bottle from Beer Hawk. Light golden colour, poured with a thickish white layer of foam. So far so good. Doesn’t smell of too much. Hmm doesn’t taste of too much either. It’s not completely unpleasant, but does taste a bit like an adjuncty lager. Nothing finish. As a beer, disappointment. As a cold drink, passable.

Bottle from beersofeurope.co.uk. Dirty cloudy orange with no head. Watery taste with no duration. Hardly any aroma - slight malt. Really not deserving of the hefeweizen tag - more a dirty coloured pale lager.
