3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I liked this beer more than I thought I would. It has a pale yellow body and a slighlty foamy head, with a nice bitterness to it that I like. However I really did not notice the wheat to it like you do in a lot of wheat beers. There are better out there.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy yellowish color and decent white head start this beer. Aroma is alright, but weak in my opinion. Flavor is NOT very wheaty, and has an odd (unpleasant) aftertaste. Not a very good wheat.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy yellow with an apricot hue; bright white, quickly fading head. Slim on the aromatic spices. Hint of fruitiness. Some bitterness in the finish. Pretty crisp and light-tasting, though not bad. Definitely has the "American Wheat" slant.

This wasn’t too bad. Not as dry as I like my hefes, but drinkable. Not the best from this brewer.

Not as good as I would have expected from Redhook. Just didnt have the citrus flavors of a great hefe, and had a strange aftertaste.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
This originally poured out of the bottle a clear straw yellow color, but I swirled hard to get some of the yeast in the glass to get a more traditional cloudy beer. Not much nose and a little, fluffy white head. Not much flavor and certainly no spicey tastes that I would expect from a german wheat. A little thin in the body and an odd flavor in the finish. Not a good hefe-weizen at all.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bit yeasty/astringent aroma, nice wheat beer aromas. Cloudy (unfiltered) butterscotch amber - tiny head. Smooth, light carb with medium body. Many different flavor elements but not all meshed - hit you one at a time. Wheaty (though more like an American wheat, not German). Astringent finish and after, though pleasant.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden hue. WHite head dissipates very quickly. Light grain aroma. Different, by no means a real hefe-weizen. Sweet first, light bodied, bitter lingering finish. Im not too impressed.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
I can’t find any major flaws with it. My only reluctance to give it a perfect score is that its still a an American adaptation of a Hefe-Weizen, not the real thing. However, for the price, availability and effort they’ve put in, its a great beer.

A tasty beer, but can’t compare with a real hefe wizen.
