Botella. Hazy orange like, medium rather short lasting white like head. Fruit wheaty soft aroma, mild banana. Ok mouthfeel. Rather mild flavour, fruitish wheaty, bit maltiness, mild bitterness. Hmm needs more in aroma and flavour.

This is your average hefe. Light yellow body and a white head. Flavor is refreshing and clean. Smooth and pretty malty. Good on a hot day for sure...but there are better.

hopscotch (10077) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Murky, deep golden brew. “Blink and you miss it” head. The nose is of caramel, banana and clove. Yeasty, beefy and lightly fruity in flavor. Some honey in there too. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Lengthy, lightly sweet finish with hints of oak. An odd hefe, this one.

Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, wheat and light clove, banana. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Dogbrick (9366) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2002
This is a good ’burger beer’. I skipped the lemon probably because that’s how Corona tries to disguise the fact that there is no flavor. That was almost the case here, but this was a refreshing, glossy-smooth drink that tasted good ice-cold.

mcberko (9224) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2010
On tap at The Taphouse, pours a hazy golden orange. Weak flavour of wheats and citrus. Not a good hefe.

Doesn’t resemble a Hefeweizen in the least. The style needs to be changed here pronto.

JoeMcPhee (8962) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2004
This is no hefeweizen! Cloudy yellow beer with thin white head. Flavour is wheaty with a nice lemony citrus. No esters of clove or banana. Crisp finish but still fairly uninteresting.

shrubber85 (8836) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Bottle. Light sour lemon and wheat aroma. Cloudy orange-yellow color with nice head. Slight sour lemon and wheat malt flavor. Boring and bland.

arminjewell (8582) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz can, this is unfiltered? Very clear orange pour with thin white head, aroma has notes of slight biscuity and bready malt, some hints of spice and earth notes as as well. Taste is a rather disappointing mix of biscuity bread, slight grassy earth notes, ever so slight touch of spice, finishing fairly clean. This would actually be a good helles or cream ale, but lacks in the hefe flavors.
