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.

Maybe I’ve been spoiled with good Hefe’s, but this beer was totally weak. No good hopping, no real wheat taste and questionable body. Don’t buy this, get the SnowCap instead.

Pours nicely cloudy. Has some citrus taste and occasionally a really nice grassy taste, but lacks bite.

This is a bland sort of everyday hefeweizen. Cloudy appearance but not too strong of a body. Yeasty, lemony flavor. Yeah, it’s drinkable, but I’ve had better hefes. Mediocre brew but highly popular none the less.

Not a bad attempt at a hefeweizen. It is very citrussy, almost a hint of lemon without even putting one in there as I ussually do with hefe’s. It has a pretty yeasty aftertaste. Not a bad beer.

Tap @ Berkeley Alehouse. Hazy yellow. Crisp, citrus, grapefruit. A yeasty aftertaste.

I did not like this hefeweizen. The wheat flavor was fairly week and it was a little too fruity for my taste. It really needed that good yeasty taste!
