Hops:
Nugget, Liberty

OG: 12.5

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 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.

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

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.

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 (10563) - 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.

Bottle. Light sour lemon and wheat aroma. Cloudy orange-yellow color with nice head. Slight sour lemon and wheat malt flavor. Boring and bland.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - DEC 7, 2012
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.

"pretty much another average beer from Pyramid...the only positive that seperates it just a little is the heavier wheat taste than in many other heffes. I like to be able to taste the wheat."
