22.5 oz bottle. Good cloudy pour into my litre mug. Full of ester of yeast, apricots and orange. No banana or clove in the smell. Medium head, seems fizzy and soapy, not dense. Swirled the yeast and poured it in. A bright hefe weizen, with good head retention. Super smooth and wet mouth feel. Perfect Bavarian hop tartness that hides behind a massive celebration of malts. Hints of coriander and orange/apricot in the finish, no clove (which is desired). Very refreshing. The body is fluffy and full of dense, warm bread at the same time. It’s bold yet light. Perfect balance between the wheat malt and lingering barley sweetness. I noticed that the carbonation fades with time (1/2 hr) and lets the hops close the deal on the palate rather than fizz. Sweet, tart and aromatic all at the same time. A wonderfully crafted beer. It’s not a Bavarian copy cat or an over hopped "American" style Weizen. It’s a well planned and complex brew. Well done.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2014 Very sweet aroma with a heavy palate. Slight citrus with a sweet and clean finish. ....

Mixed pack of 12 oz. bottles from grocery. Dark, golden and hazy. White head that dissipates to filmy foam. Faint aroma, maybe a touch of fruit (note: had a cigar prior to drinking this, probably not the best for tasting...) Sweet with light bitterness. Soft carbonation and an easy finish. A nice, easy drinking Hefe -- perfect for the spring weather we’re having in the PacNW.

I really wasn't impressed with this beer at at the brewery off the tap, nor from the bottle. It poured nice enough, but for my taste it isn't a high ranker. I miss the lemon taste that it is supposed to have.

Slightly cloudy wheat beer. Good from bottle or tap, but needs that lemon slice to help it along. Doesn’t stand on its own like a Franziskaner.

Truly not a completely unfortunate hefeweizen. I enjoyed it. A lot of flavor for a light brew. Wheaty and fruity.

Water beer. Kind of like drinking a PBR. Little head and even less flavor. My least favorite of the Pyramids so far.

12oz. squat bottle. I truly disliked this weak, horrible excuse for a Hefe. It did not example any of the characteristics of a good Hefeweizen, it was watery as all get out, and the finish was bitter on top off all that. STAY AWAY! Try the curve-ball instead.

As a beer it is uh well palatable. As for it saying it is a hefeweizen is ridiculous. I am not a fan.

Cloudy golden beer. Smells of wheat and maybe something sweet. Thick off white head that lingers. Nice lacing. Doesn’t leave much of an after thought. I would consider the finish very clean.
