2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle at a restaurant, came with a lemon wedge already installed. Cloudy light orange/yellow, small head disappeared quickly. Light body, easy to drink and mine was... well quite lemony, but not much else going on. I've had this on tap in the past and seem to recall enjoying it more. Will have to try a better example of this style, really don't care for the German style (the cloves ruin it for me).

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2003 The one I poured had absolutely no head. Aroma of caramel malts, and apples. Very cider like. Nice medium body. Fairly sweet with an apple like finish.

First off, i wanna know where they got that picture of the Pyramid Hefeweizen, because mine looked pretty pathetic compared to that. On tap at Chili's Bar and Grill in Reseda, CA. It poured a cloudy orange color, just like the color on the inside of an orange. Head is non-existant..something white-like faintly tried to cling to the glass but failed miserably. The aroma is..somewhere...where, i dont know..but it is there...ahhhh, there it is.. wheat, some malt, and thats about it. The taste was strange..its starts off with nothing but a wheat, and malty metallicness to it, and then trangresses to get thinner and thinner as i progressed through my tall sample. Very little to this drink...a thin wheat flavor, a little malt to make for a dry finish, but nothing interesting. I had more fun looking at the cute waitresses...definitely a party beer.

Bland, hops instead of a clove taste. A little thin not smooth Not my idea of a Hefeweizen some may like it with lemon

Aroma is not very pleasant. Flavor very light and boring with a citrusy, tangy finish. Have to drink this one in a glass or it"s undrinkable. I"m not sure what they did to get the head in the picture, but in my galss it"s non-existent.

I much prefer the wheaten, this seemed rather unexciting

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2007 [rerate needed] Murky orange/yellow, darker than most comparable wheats. Smell of a typical american hefeweizen, very yeasty with citrus. Very smooth in the mouth, with emphasis on orange and lemon, and mid-drink it turns to very sweet and syrupy. Finish is like sucking on candy, very moist and syrupy. It reminds me of drinking orange juice or lemon tea.

This one had a nice smooth wheat feel (body)and clean finish. The color is great. Even a slightly sweet middle taste. A good session beer.

Not the best wheat by far. maybe I tried too many German wheats before hitting this one... Had a funny taste that I couldn’t place, other than that a very run-of-the-mill hefe-weizen. Nothing distinguishing or notable about this brew.

Smells very wheaty with a beautiful unfiltered golden hue. It had a very citrus flavor followed by slight hoppy flavor. Overall a pretty good wheat.
