2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
bread in a bottle, yeasty character, which I prefer more in my belgians than in strong dose in a hefe. This one is crisp yet doughy from a bottle. Not sure how they manage that. Kinda like having a tart funnel cake. Despite the grandios pyramids on the label, this one amounts to more like a crop circle of a hefeweizen.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a small white head. Aroma of banana, clove, and wheat. Taste has same notes with yeast. Feels a bit watery. Drinkability is Ok.

This is not the best wheat beer I have had ...by quite some distance. Does have a nice bready aroma but that is about it ( I wish they would be a little more adventurous with their hopping in this brew). I had to put a lemon in it to make it better.

Good American wheat beer. Not the best but definitley not the worst. Have had it numerous times on tap and out of the bottle. It is definitely popular in this area.

Bottle. Overall Decent. I agree there are better hefes out there. Pour is golden/orange, very little head. Looks almost sickly. Much better out of the tap than bottle. Average hefeweizen. Nothing special, nothing awful.

Bottle. Pours a nice golden-orange, cloudy color. NIcely refreshing with mild lemony flavor.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Unimpressive color, almost see thru. You've already read sour, thats the only way to describe it. Sour, with a citrus thrown on top. A hideously confusing mouthfeel, carbonation killing all distinct flavors. Left with a sweet middle, sour finish with a hint of citrus to throw off the unknowing drinker. A crime of a brew.

This is an ok hefe, nothing too special, but very drinkable. There are others out there that are much better.

This beer starts out looking alright but ends up falling short on everything in my opinion. Aroma is pretty typical for a Hefe, but still has a watery, hollow quality. Taste gave a similar experience. Finish seems alright as well, but then gives a long wateriness followed by a slight hop flavor, then more long water aftertaste. Overall it seems alright, but with a little thought and careful tasting I realized it just comes up short all around.

It’s decent, but better hef’s have been done. I find this one a little too bitter and ’empty tasting’ for a hef - try red hook, or hacker pschorr weiss.
