This is a fantastic lighter beer for those days you just donít feel like chewing your beer but cannot bring yourself to actually drink that Evian they call Budwiser.

Great hefeweizen beer enjoyed while at Jimmy Buffetís Margaritaville in Vegas. Beautiful unfiltered and cloudy appearance. Slight fruity flavor, but has enough substance to satisfy.

pretty good, I like it without the lemon. I still do not get that. It is like putting steak sauce on a steak, you hide the flavor.

Decent. A good wheaty US hefe. Many american wheats donít deliver the goods like this does, IMHO. Bit sour.

TheBeerGod (5284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2002
Not bad. Considering this is West Coast, itís definitely not bad. Smells and tastes of a citrus and wheat mix. Strong towards lemon but leaning towards orange. Not too spicy or floral. Gladly itís not overloaded with hops. Worth trying. Got it as a gift along with some other beers. Not bad at all.

Smells very wheaty with a beautiful unfiltered golden hue. It had a very citrus flavor followed by slight hoppy flavor. Overall a pretty good wheat.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2008 This is a quality brew, which I really enjoy. It is lightly salty and effervescent, easy to drink and crisp. It is simple, delicious, and unpretentious.
