A hoppy hefe. I think the only hefe quality this has is upon the initial pour when you swirl the yeast in the bottom of the bottle and get that rush of foam in the glass. But after that, meh. A hazy honey color whit a thick white head. Aroma is of bread and there is an attempt on giving this a grassy hop taste but it just seems off. Having this makes me miss Capitalís Kloster Weizen even more and I wonder if there is a good American hefe out there.

Poured into a weizen glass. 3.0 A: Clear light orange color. Got less than one finger of head to form and it left pretty quickly. Short ring of lacing. 2.5 S: Aroma on this is pretty uninspired. Lacking all the usual suspects of a hefe - very little spiciness, no yeastiness at all. Neutral wheat is the strongest thing going. It does have something like a bubble gum aroma, but itís probably just the hops. Speaking of which, hops are a grassy floral combination. Not particularly enticing. 2.25 T: Taste is even more disappointing. Wheat and then the hoppiness found in the nose - floral, bubblegum, grass. Light wheat flavor. Again disappointing is about all you need to know. 2.5 M: Medium body. A bit less carbonation than Iíd like. Missing the creaminess, which is probably due to the lack of yeast. 2.0 D: Nothing good going on in this. Avoid. ★ 856 characters DavoleBomb, Sep 03, 2013

Bottle at home from notes. Pours a clear dark golden color with a medium sized white head that doesnít last. The aroma and flavor have pale wheat malts, pilsner malt, lemony citrus, not much else. No real signs of the banana or cloves, bland.

The beer is either infected or has brett. Itís a strange urinal cake with malt and hops buried in it. The appearance is hazy gold with a medium head. The taste is garbage and like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall awful beer!

on tap @ Rivertown Brewing / Cincinnati OH --- Clear light amber, rim head and a dusting of a cover, thin strings of lace. Taste is malt and wheat with a little caramel showing in the palate. Hops jump in briefly in the finish, but canít hold on , giving way again to malt at the end. A light beer, but good.

Pours a clear lager-golden color with NO head. Flat lager nose, with sanitant cleanser noted from the glass over the beerís aroma. Full, wet, smooth mouthfeel. Freezer burn flavor overpowers anything else going on. This is the worst beer Iíve ever had.

Rated on 10-21-2011 (Bottle) This beer has a very small white head with a lengthy retention, transparent pale yellow body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is malt, wheat, citrus hops, and crisp. The flavor is lightly bitter, citrus hops, lightly spicy, malt, and wheat. This beer has a lively mouthfeel and is medium bodied. This beer is not very tasty as it needs more flavor and more character.

Bottle from Beer:30 in Jacksonville. Murky orange-yellow pour with visible carbonation and sturdy soap head. Aroma is wheat, spice, earthy. Tastes are bittersweet, spicey, spruce, pine, belgian yeast. Little strange. Not as bad as Iíd have guessed based on ratings.

Secret Krampus beer #3, thanks Peter.

Pours golden clear yellow, nice white head, no real lacing or retention to speak of. The aroma is actually somewhat hoppy, which I found odd. At first I thought this was a crappy IPA but then I noticed that itís an "American hefeweizen"...Beyond the hops are grass, grain, lemon, and mediocrity. Iím not opposed to taking a garbage style like pale wheat ale and hopping it up to make it drinkable but this is either old or it failed. The flavor is bitter, lemon, thin, corn, and seltzer water. Meh.

1/25/14. 12oz bottle. Canít remember for sure if this was from Trader Joeís or from PorterPounder or Aurelius. I guess I didnít know what I was getting into with this one. Is the "mysterious twist" Brett? Because it sure smells and tastes like it. I would have guessed I was drinking a Brett saison or something. Orange pour with a small khaki head. Brett funk and hay on the aroma, light sourness. Mild flavor, again Brett and lightly sour, some doughy malt poking through. Actually not bad, but not sure if thatís what itís supposed to be.

Not much here. Much better wheats on the market. Murky pour. Taste is somewhat bland.
