2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Rhythm & Booze, Ripon. Looks more like a standard lager than a wheat beer. Not much flavour to speak of really. A poor effort.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A mid golden orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A light cereal aroma, wheat, malt and oats, with a hint of smoke. Dry mouthfeel. A dry cereal taste, again of wheat, malt and oats, then there is a background sourness of hop. Nice but not a patch on the real thing.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Picked up Pyramid Hefeweizen at a local grocery craft beer section. Opened and poured into a glass. Has a yellow haze color. But has a not so pleasant smell. Taste was not so good either. Would not recommend.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Tap House, Seattle. Very hazy orange with a ring of white head. Big citrussy tones everywhere, but itís almost like fruit on its way to decomposition rather than fresh. Must be the yeast working in strange ways. Carbonation feels high. A strange cousin to a German hefe, but OK.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
5oz taster on tap at Cincinnati Beer Fest. Hazy yellow orange color. Thin white head. Some bits and splotches of lace. Light to medium body. More soft carbonation. Dry finish. Flavor is very brief. Just a hint of clove, very little banana / vanilla. Kind of like the Widmer Hefe, in that it tastes like a generic American wheat beer, not very German-style, but this isnít as bad as the Widmer was. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter, some metallic. This "hefeweizen" does not have much going for it.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light wheat aroma, some lemon. Appearance is hazy apricot with small off white head. Taste is sweet malt, wheat, bit of apricot peach fruitiness. Palate is medium. Flat wheat lingers on the tongue with mild fruitiness. Overall a drinkable beer that is incredibly boring.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Hazy orange, medium sized white head. Not much aroma, but flavours or citrus and wheat, with a little bit of spice in the mouth. Body is soft and a little bit doughy, but passable. Nothing outstanding happening here, but passable summer beer.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
355ml bottle: 16 days out of date when poured into one of my Franziskaner Weissbier glasses on 17 Aug 2013.
Looked just like itís 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 itís 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.
