I like this beer, but in my book it is not a hefe. Sure its cloudy, but there is no banana clove flavor that is required of a German hefe. Why not just call it an unfiltered American Wheat? Still a decent tasting beer.

Pours golden haze, white head. Aroma very weak and taste sub par. Not my favorite

Very very bland. One of the most anonymous hefes around. The citrusy note is the only thing I can pick up with some hoppy backflavor.

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.

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.

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!

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).

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.

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.
