I was somewhat disappointed with this beer. I’m a huge fan of Hefeweizens and wheat beers, but this one was average at best. The appearance and aroma were so-so. Not cloudy like I would have imagined. The taste was also okay. Some hops and a little lemon. An okay beer.

foyle (189) - Wyoming, USA - APR 4, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle into nonic glass. Appearance: pours a 1" head that quickly recedes with some lacing. Color is a quite cloudy orange-yellow. Aroma: wheat dominates the aroma with some citrus hops and yeasty bread in the background. Mouthfeel: light and watery, a little slick with a drying finish. Flavor: Caramel barley malt is more prevalent in the taste than the aroma as it balances with the wheat. A hint of banana as well. Citrus rind hops are noticeable but not overpowering in the finish. Overall: a pleasant wheat beer and appropriate to the style.

The "barely" beer - barely any head, smell or flavor. Only redeeming quality (barely) was the lacing.

Gription79 (2158) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Lots of fruity notes, cereal, doughy, grainy, soft esters. Light and easy drinking.

Somewhat sour middle note that adds to overall interest. Wife enjoyed greatly, I found more of a curiousity.

Bottle thanks to s_hartshorne. Hazy pale amber beer with large head. Aroma of wheat and a little bubblegum. Taste is bubblegum, some hints of spice and wheat. Ok beer, a little bland.

wimpyjoe (2963) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Golden-orange with a small head. Has a light hefeweien quality, but not up to central European standards it is modelled on. Slightly thin but easy to drink.

Bottle rhythm+booze 01/08/13. Hazy orange amber colour thin white head. Aroma is very weak. Taste is slight citrus very creamy good taste but nothing really to grab your attention. Decent body medium carbonation just enough. 200th beer rating was hoping for more.
