Golden coored. Hazy. Nowhere near a hefeweizen but rather a nice American ale made from wheat malt IMO.

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.

Aurelius (4178) - 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 it’s 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 it’s 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.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2002
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.

jsquire (3465) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2002
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.

Aubrey (3432) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2002
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.

A rather blase’ wheat. Slightly unbalanced/undeveloped, but still refreshing and very drinkable.
