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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slight lemony sweetness, grainy, pours a straw color with a touch of orange, cloudy with low head retention great lacing. Smooth and creamy to a tang bite at the end. Grassy, grainy, good carbonation some sweetness

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Misses the mark for this German style of wheat beer by a mile. Aroma: Wheaty graininess, low spiciness. Very much missing the rich, strong banana esters and clove phenols that define this style.
Appearance: Slightly hazy medium gold. Low loosely formed white head dissipates immediately. Wrong for style - a good hefeweizen has a creamy, long lasting big head - - wheat does that (usually). Taste: Again, totally lacking the yeast-derived complexity of banana/clove/etc., dominated by bland bready wheat flavor. Faint lemon. Low bitterness. Moderate malt sweetness. Palate: Finish is fairly dry. Carbonation moderate. Should be high to ’spritzy’ for a hefeweizen. Medium light body. Overall: A 2-dimensional cardboard cutout of a typically rich, interesting style (tastes only slightly better than cardboard, as well).
