i liked it because it was a hef, but it wasn’t full of flavor like most weat beers. cloudy with little head. taste was light, but a twinge sweet.

This does not have the taste of a true German hefe and it is one of the few wheat beers that i will "hang fruit" (lemon) in. Despite the unfiltered processing this beer pours very clear with a darker color than many hefes. Good flavor, not as complex and lacks the citrus and spice notes found in a Yazoo or Paulaner.

I was looking for a long time for a reasonable domestic Hefeweizen. The lemmon touch surprised me in the beginning but then, hmmm the right beer for a summer evening. Until now the closest to a Bavarian Hefeweizen!

Not a real flavorful wheat beer. It is smooth and easy to drink, but does not have the distinct bavarian flavor that comparable microbrews offer.

hazy, orange gold color.. medium white head.. sweet grain & mild citrus smell. taste is a bit too sweet for me. there is nothing to draw you in on the first sip. pretty mediocre hefe.

Misses the mark for this German style of wheat beer by a mile. Aroma: Wheaty graininess, low spiciness. Very much missing the rich, strong banana esters and clove phenols that define this style. Appearance: Slightly hazy medium gold. Low loosely formed white head dissipates immediately. Wrong for style - a good hefeweizen has a creamy, long lasting big head - - wheat does that (usually). Taste: Again, totally lacking the yeast-derived complexity of banana/clove/etc., dominated by bland bready wheat flavor. Faint lemon. Low bitterness. Moderate malt sweetness. Palate: Finish is fairly dry. Carbonation moderate. Should be high to ’spritzy’ for a hefeweizen. Medium light body. Overall: A 2-dimensional cardboard cutout of a typically rich, interesting style (tastes only slightly better than cardboard, as well).

I must admit, perhaps not a hef kinda guy, but none the less i like this one. Perhaps to my own detriment, for this hef is not the norm in the northwest. hazy body with lingering mello tones that meander around the idea of depicting dirty earthy notes. A hef that does not need the lemon, for it rings rich with citris and body.

This beer is a cloudy yellow, not really golden, looks almost like it has lemon or banana in it. Smooth, almost to the point where it disappears before you realize you have had anything to drink. Very light and needs some lemon or something to add bite.

Very thin, watery, corny taste, much like a cheap beer. Difficult to distinguish this one from a Miller High Life. Seriously.

Poured cloudy murky dull orange flavor with smells of bread and citrus spice, not even a hint of banana. This was my first "hefe" and even if it’s not a stellar example of the style, it’s still delicious. My first tentative sip turned into a healthy slow gulp which turned into barely being able to set my glass down between sips. I gave up, held onto it and finished it pretty quickly. And then I realized my mistake--I didn’t have any more. That won’t happen again, I’ll keep this stocked up as a standby. Oh, I also tried this with a handful of blackberries thrown in--equally tasty a bit more bitter and just like a little beer lava lamp. It was the refreshment and the entertainment!
