The standard by which all other wheat beers are judged. Our deliciously deranged American-Style Hefeweizen is an award winning take on this Bavarian classic. This refreshingly unfiltered wheat ale delivers a distinctively smooth flavor worth sharing with friends.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a very hazy dark orange color with a large creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is wheat and bready malts. Very subtle clove and fruit notes. Taste is bready malts followed by subtle pear notes. Overall bland and weak. Medium bodied.

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.

I rated this one before it went "haywire." Not the best of the genre. Cloudy yellow pour. Nose and taste of dry wheats and banana. Rated 11/3/2000

Dogbrick (8114) - 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.

3fourths (8019) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2003
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.

JorisPPattyn (7908) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 17, 2006
Draught Fully hazy orange beer with olive shine; no head to speak of. Citrussy, wheat, bit of fruity esters in the nose. Served ice cold, of course. Rather sweet, bit orange-banana, but discreet; sourness almost non-existent. Retronasal some slight buttery flavour (no diacetyl). Light MF, slight wheat slickness. How more dull a supposedly serious style can become?

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 23, 2008
Not too impressive. Very wheaty aroma. Large, frothy, off-white head covering a hazy gold body. Corny and bitter taste, not too much wheat. Dry mouthfeel with fizzy carbonation. Not impressed.

DocLock (7854) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2004
Pours slightly turbid gold with a big, creamy, white head. Aroma of malt, yeast, citrus, hops. Tastes malty, with citrus, some yeast/hops at mid-palate, and finishing chardonnay and slight banana. Slightly dry finish, with a medium to light palate.

Draught as a 5 oz sampler at Pyramid in Sacramento, CA, on April 23, 2011
Murky yellow pineapple color, white head. Served with a piece of lemon. Spicy, fruity, lemonish, farily mild sugary taste. Some sloe in the aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel to the moussy side. Medium low bitterness. Spicy and sweet scent.

2010-07-06. Murky pastel gold with a small white head. 3+ Flavour is mild, sweet muted pale maltes with light fruity touches, tart wheat notes in the finish grow as it warms up. 6+ Average palate. Muted aroma of lightly grainy wheat. Meh. On tap at Bigfoot Tavern, SeaTac
