Flowery aroma, creamy head with a good cloudy appearance. Even had pellet sized residue at the bottom of the glass. Good full bodied sweet flavor. Strong finish - goes down smooth.

Thoroughly enjoyable, except the people who were kind enough to give it to me said it was good with a lemon and i felt bad declining the citrus so I accepted both. Iíll have to have it again w/o the lemon to get the real experience.

Hazy yellow/gold colour w/ big head that dissipated quickly. Fruity aroma w/ hints of banana and citrus. Medium-thin body w/ a slight spritz. Not a lot of flavour up front. A little thin and watery. Nice dry, grassy, earthy finish, though,and a little bitterness

This hefeweizen is a session beer if ever there was one. Very easy to drink. the hops are just apparent in the flavor and the wheat finishes it off very nicely. it does not have as much flavor and aroma as many more traditional hefes have but that is ok this time.

Aurelius (4062) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2002
A slightly burnt/parched wheat aroma -- grainy, without the musk associated with European weissen. It appears that every effort was made to make this middle of the road -- it does have sediment, and itís unfiltered, but there are no pronounced esters or yeasts. Medium peachy gold, with a malleable white foam. Bready, parched grain flavor. A pretty solid palate. Clean drinking and a good compliment to the pork chops that I drank it with, but itís nothing special. It really could have stood a little bit more acidity (lemon.) Clean, mild West Coast hops. Dinging it in appearance for an ugly label and a screw-off cap.

A definite American wheat--not necessarily a bad thing, but in this case, not really all that big a deal. OK flavor, no hops are discernable, and there none of the yeasty aftertaste that I donít like from the German version (I like the fact that it doesnít taste that way, but the claim on the bottle is that it does taste that way). My local bar has it on special-- same as Bud--which makes it special to me, but if I had to pay more.......

Not as cloudy as a usually wheat beer. Not very much on the taste side. Definitely better wheat beers available.

Average wheat beer. Nothing really made the beer stand out.

I think this used to be called íWheatHookí. Anyway, itís an above average brew, but isnít very wheaty at all, by German standards. Try their Nut Brown, instead.

As with most Red Hook products, nice idea, but weak follow-through - a pale imitation of the better beers. This has a faint wheat note, weak, watery body. Iíve only had domestic wheat beers - Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada etc. but this one was entirely indistinctive and barely looks and tastes the part.
