Hops:
Nugget, Liberty

OG: 12.5

Light citrus nose from the cloudy golden body with a thin lacy head. Smooth, with decent balance, but lacking uniqueness. Bitter finish with some German yeast character. A mediocre brew.

This ones a joke compared to the Four Peaks hefe i had right before this one. Weak flavor, and this beer had no head.. unlike the picture shown here.

A orangish yellow nontransparent wiht little to zero head. Not much of anything.

Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - FEB 25, 2003
Grainy wheat aroma and flavor. no clove or banana, as is appropriate in an American wheat. Very cloudy. While it is true to style, I find it all together boring.

Boring. Nothing distinguishing or especially memorable. Uni-dimensional hoppiness.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2003
A decent american-style wheat. Sour, fruity aroma. Not surprisingly, a hazy golden body. Flavors follow the aroma's cue: fruity, sour (slight vinegar edge) and yeasty. Mildly wheaty but no hint of maltiness.

Hazy honey color with a subsiding white frothy head. My first reaction on sniffing this beer was refined/ subdued, there is supposed to be an aroma here just waiting to be unleashed but is kept from doing so. For an unfiltered wheat there is a surprizing lack of flavor, to go along with th lack of aroma. It is crisp and clean but taste like it was made by Miller or any other macro to appeal to the masses.

I tried this brew many years ago (or at least it seems like it) here in Seattle. I was rather disappointed in it's lack of flavor for a hefeweizen. Unforunately, it's served as the "go to" hefe around the Seattle area. Pyramid is capable of much better.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2003 Hmmm. I expected a hefe out of this one and got little more than overpriced Budwiser. This seemed to lack the distinct sharpness of traditional German hefeweizen. Kinda tastes like sweat in a bottle, if you ask me. This has to be one of Pyramid's worst. Flavor is bland, and lacking. Aftertaste is malty, but sour. If there was such a thing as a light hefe, then this might be it. I'll stick to Hacker-Pschorr or Paulner- how hefeweizen should taste.

Average, It has all of the key ingrediantls, but doesn't put out. A nice clear, presentation, experience, and finish/ Nough said.
