Tap. Bright light yellow with a frothy white head. Muted aromas with some citrus and light wheat. Slight wheat, some faint hay sweet-sourness, but pretty bland. Lighter body with spritzy carbonation.

Bottle. This "looks right" for a hefeweizen ... Hazy yellow with a firm white head. But thereís little distinctive flavor. Just a vague grist with a lemon twist. Not bad, not great for style. (#4646, 7/3/2012)

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Received in a pint glass at a little eatery near Yellowstone.
4.0 A: Moderately hazed green tinted yellow color. Came when I was in the bathroom, so I canít comment much on the head, but it did leave lots of lacing.
2.5 S: A little bit of bubblegum and a touch of clove, but not very hefe-y. Neutral wheat without a lot of complexity and not very clean either.
3.0 T: Pretty much like the nose. Touch of bubblegum and clove, but without a real hefe identity. Wheat flavor is a lot stronger than in the nose though.
3.0 M: Lighter medium to medium body. Good hefe carbonation, but it is a bit bity. Very light creaminess.
2.5 D: Mediocre hefe that is missing most of what I like about the style.
Serving type: on-tap

12 ounce bottle thanks to Toby, thanks man! Pours a mostly clear orange color with a medium sticky white head. A sweet nose of honey and marmalade. An easy going smooth hefe; citrus, very grainy, light oranges and a earthy dry finish. Nice. I really have began to enjoy this style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear yellow gold with a foamy quickly fading head. Aroma of wheat and mild citrus along with sweet fruit. Taste is mildly bitter with apple and peach fruit flavors and a thick bready malt body. More flavor than expected just from looking at the bottle. Very solid wheat ale.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks Dieter, like it matters, you will never read this you sack of lard.
Ahhh metamusil or very thick chicken broth beer and no cap at all - why is that? The aroma is overly sour for this style, lemon, clove and some other dull spice, ok but not where I wanted this to be. The taste was ok with bitterness happening early on, dull cherry and dull yeast. Totally drinkable though. Full and thick for mouth feel - probably too thick. Glad this was bought with money that was not mine.

Thanks to Skyview! Clear, dark gold color with a quickly vanishing thin head. Slightly dry grain aroma. Interesting flavor. Some wheat, grain and dry earthiness, but an oddly smoky overtone. Not too strong, but enough to be noticeable. I would say this is much more an American Wheat than a Hefeweizen.
