Fine cloudy golden color, very smooth taste, slightly bitter. This is a fine wheat beer but not a true hefeweizen.

This one has a murky, deep golden hue and the aroma of banana-nut bread, with a rich, pleasing wheat taste. Yes, the head on this one was a bit lame, but the rich flavor more than makes up for that!

I absolutely love the memory of drinking this beer on tap across from Safeco Field in Seattle. With a lemon in it and itís golden color it is perfect for a brunch. I always felt excellent heading to the games, Go Mariners!

Still one of my favorite hefes. I like the drinkability and the lighter taste of the hefe. Great with or without lemon. Wheat taste really comes out, like drinking a fresh wheat roll. Refreshing and light while still very flavorful.

Solid hefe. Surprised by the low ratings here -- Iím not sure what people are expecting? I wouldnít mind a bit more banana notes in the flavor, but this one is quite good.

Good hefeweizen. Probably the best hefe you're going to get that is brewed on this side of the Atlantic. If you want the best that you can get, I'd go for a Tuchor.

Iíve alwasy found this hefe to be better than many of the other American ones out there. yeasty and crisp...if you get ahcne check it out at on of their Breweries/Pub for the better tasting tap version. You can even watch a movie outdoor in their parking lot in the summer.

Bottled - Bought this with low expectations... Pours a cloudy orange... Aroma is yeast and citrus with an apple scent... Flavor has a refreshing citrus taste with a little sweetness... Iím not fond of Pyramid beers ... but this is probaby their best... good hefe IMO... Iíd buy it again.. they won me over

Pleasant brew with typical hefeweizen characteristics. Has a good flavor although the Apricot Hefeweizen has a little more flavor.
