Hops:
Nugget, Liberty

OG: 12.5

I much prefer the wheaten, this seemed rather unexciting

omhper (21272) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2003
Sampled druaght at Fox & Hound, Richardson, Texas.
Pale amber and cloudy. No Head. No aroma. Very light fruitiness. Clean and hard malt profile and fizzy mouthfeel. Medium to light body. Notes of citrus and slight touch of bitterness in the finish.

pours with a healthy light-tan head above the traditional cloudy golden/orange body. Aroma is mildly sweet wheat, spicy (clove), and light citrus. Taste is watery lemon, hint of yeast. Where's the banana?!

Oakes (13537) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2001
I remember someone telling me that this was just an unfiltered version of the Wheaten Ale. That cannot be true, since that beer is quite good and this one is quite lifeless.

I tried this brew many years ago (or at least it seems like it) here in Seattle. I was rather disappointed in it's lack of flavor for a hefeweizen. Unforunately, it's served as the "go to" hefe around the Seattle area. Pyramid is capable of much better.

hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2003
This is an utterly classic example of beauty being only skin deep. This is a very pretty brew - nice cloudy swirls and a decent head, bordering on thickly gorgeous though it rapidly churns away. And so does all lauding for the brew - there bascially is nothing there beneath the makeup. Is it Animal House where the kid goes to undo the bra and is left holding crumpled kleenex as she passes out? Very little left to this brew - check out how many times the always on target ecrvich used synonyms for "average" in his review and you understand better than if you made it through my vacuous rant.

Bottle. This is a poor imitation of an American Wheat IMO. Poor taste. It poured a small smooth white head with fine-medium sized bubbles that fully dissipated. The body had fast rising carbonation and somewhat hazy with a yellow-gold hue. The nose was sweet, some banana notes, spices and clove, but not up to par for an American Wheat. The flavor was somewhat sweet tasting and sour from start to finish. The mouthfeel was smooth, watery and thin. The lacing was very sparse.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - MAY 19, 2004
Golden Yellow with orange highlights. Aroma with hints of want I can only describe as hard-boiled eggs. No esters, no bannana and really just a cloudy american standard. Sticky palate. I’m not fond of this beverage.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 4, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2008 Pours hazy golden with a fully receding white head. Very mild aroma of wheat with a little hint of citrus. Taste is sweaty yeast. Not bad, not good. Another boring beer from a generally unexciting style.
