Golden cloudy color. Initial odor of rising bread fades quickly. Slightly sour citrus flavor.

Not bad. Considering this is West Coast, it’s definitely not bad. Smells and tastes of a citrus and wheat mix. Strong towards lemon but leaning towards orange. Not too spicy or floral. Gladly it’s not overloaded with hops. Worth trying. Got it as a gift along with some other beers. Not bad at all.

Slightly cloudy, little head. Spices present but no asserted well enough--rather a dull profile that seems watered down. Fruits, a little. Vinegar and astringent notes in my glass.

(23Dec2002) Served on tap in a tall Bavarian weissbier glass, this pretty beer got me excited--a perfectly authentic-looking hefeweisse. Sadly, I see that this is an ’American Wheat’, a euphemism for wussie pseudo-weisse. Hardly could discern any aroma. None of the expected coriander/banana smells or flavors. Just a persistent acid sourness with no real flavor.

Part of a gift pack,cloudy hazy yellow color, with a small white head.Stale bannana-clove aroma, wheaty, yeasty flavors, very light in body, somewhat watery, has kind of a sour after taste, not bad average for an American Wheat.

Re-rate 12/20/02: A “Chill Hazed” orange color on the pour with a decent sized head and nice lace to cover the glass. Yeasty hints in the nose, citrus fresh and lightly sweet, the start malt mostly with a middling top. Finish nicely carbonated and a fair to middling hop presence with the appropriately dry lingering aftertaste. Nice beer, not a great beer, but drinkable in its own right.

Medium gold color. Large foamy head. Aroma is malty and slightly floral. A medium bodied hefe-weizen. Mild flavored, smooth tasting wheat. In fact it’s kind of bland. Not in the Macro sort of way, but just that it’s not very flavorful. None of the banana and clove flavor going on here, but there is a kind of buttery taste to it. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty and slightly sweet.

Perfectly boring. This beer was fermented so cleanly. Lawnmower beer.
