Had one of these on tap at Riva (on the Wharf) while visiting the Santa Cruz boardwalk last Sunday. This brew pours a cloudy light amber. The white and foamy head doesn't last long and the lacing is light. The nose is standard dry wheat, I was on a wharf, mind you - so I struggled with the nose. The bready taste is bland but balanced. The body is light, watery and fizzy. Great for summertime, but this is one of my least favorite styles.

Braudog (5939) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 20, 2003
From the bottle, this had little of the classic hefe character I'd expect. It's cloudy and vaguely yeasty, but it's much deeper hued and not as sharp or charactered as the classic HW. It's an OK beer, as long as you know what you're getting.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 12, 2003
Cloudy, darker than most wheats, poors frothy but quickly diminishing head. Light yeasty aroma with citusy hints. Taste is rather sour, somewhat malty with hints of apple. Finish is sour and somewhat unpleasant.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2003
Color is a hazy/cloudy yellow gold with a small white foam head about a finger high, faded quickly, leaving some lacing. Smell is lightly lemony and grainy, sweet with some wheat and yeast notes. Taste is grainy wheat and twisted with lemon citrus, a bit tame yeast and malt with a touch of lime or orange peel, all very soft, calm, and easy. Feel is lighter medium bodied with some tart action thats not to bad, a bit uneven and rough. It's a drinkable hefe, not bad, not great, just above average.

Good hefe. Nice gold color, good white head. Smooth and good taste. I liked this a lot.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JUL 5, 2003
Not too inticing aroma, really no citrus notes. Nice golden color. Head dissipates rapidly. Smooth taste, somewhat boring, nothing too distictive here. Mellow aftertaste. Another lawnmower beer.

jezmez68 (403) - Chesterton, Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2003
Good hefeweizen. Probably the best hefe you're going to get that is brewed on this side of the Atlantic. If you want the best that you can get, I'd go for a Tuchor.

guzzler67 (1538) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 24, 2003
Not very impressive - at least from the tap. Maybe the bottles are better. Appearance was not true to the style. Aroma was barely there. The yeasty/wheat taste was very ordinary. Much better hefe's to select out there.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JUN 23, 2003
This bottle was about a month past the "Best by this date" recommendation label. Had the appearance of a nice cloudy hefe with not very much aroma. The flavor was lemony and slighty fruity. It didn't taste old, but there just wasn't much going on to talk about in this beer.

Cloudy orange. Slight notes of bananas and oranges. Pretty bland. I still have to meet a 'american wheat' which i find interresting.
