2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2005 Bottle: The color is difficult to explain, it’s an off yellowish Gold and it’s very cloudy. It offers a nice creamy white head but it’s gone in less than a minute. The aroma is lightly fruity but no distinctions could be made. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy but very light. The flavor is very light, with a touch of orange and banana, not very rewarding. Aftertaste is almost nonexistant! This beer does nothing for me, very boring!!!

12oz. Bottle. The aroma is a strong wheat smell and I was very excited about the taste. But I was disappointed in the small amount of flavor in this beer. It seemed they slightly missed the target.

Had this at Pour24 at NYNY in Vegas on tap. A pretty typical Hefe Weizen. Nothing out of the ordinary. Creamy white head with a pale body. I would recommend a lemon with this one.

I had it with lemon so that does effect the taste but I enjoyed the malty flavor that it had. It didn’t knock my boots off but I would buy more for sure.

Tap Pour at Scarpa’s 2 in ABQ, NM. Served in a pint glass with the traditional lemon slice garnish. Not much head, but the cloudy orange-amber body was a sight for sore eyes. Aroma dominated by the citrus aspect, but a little wheat comes through. No traditional banana here! Flavors also dominated by the lemon/citrus, but more of the wheat/bread, and some spices come out. I do miss the banana evident in other Weizens. Very tasty for an American Hefeweizen... but these boys still have something to shoot for. Cheers!

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2008 this pint poured by ayn rand loving bartender - john’s - steep recommendation. pyramid hefe pours with a riverbed sediment heavy yellowish-orange hue. visually swirling citrus notes darken as outer lights descend through the glass. aroma proclaims divine purpose of the lemon peel - bright and floral and yellow. i sip with high expectancy. the hazy citrus appearance infuses thick clouds of breakfast beverage flavor. i want to drink this beer early in the day - maybe with a coffee and eggs benedict. orangey aftertaste does not offend the initial refreshment or disturb the beer-at-six-AM fantasy. i would drink this beer in the morning before work if i could find the right job. my first - not last - pyramid offering.

Sample at a beer tasting. Aroma was weak, but hinted of citrus which leaned more toward lemon. Slightly metallic flavor and plenty of citrus that didn’t combine well with the wheat malt. Nice and cloudy.

Wheity hops in aroma and a slight hops with carbonation for the taste. Not bad, but not a great beer either.

Had this one on the Outer Banks. Favorite vacation so far, not my favorite beer. It poured like unfiltered apple juice with a thin head and little to no lacing on the glass. I've mentioned before my problem with bananas so it shouldn't surprise you to know that when i smelled that, it soured me on this beer. However it was mild enough that I was able to discern some other aromas, mango, nutty hops and yeast. It was a thin beer, more fizzy than carbonated and it had a stange pine-y undertone to it. And again, the banana thing. If it wasn't for that, it'd be an easy drinkin light summer beer.
