660ml Bottle from Appellation Wines. Clear golden amber colour, good foamy head. Sour wheat / grain aroma. Dry cereal wheat grain flavour, bitter aftertaste. Unusual but not outstanding. Not sure why it is called Hefeweizen as it is nothing like a hefe.

On tap. Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with no head. Has no discernable aroma. Taste is sweet pale malt, some breadiness and an unpleasant sweat socks-like sourness. Not very well balanced. Meh.

...had it in Cedar Key recently from the bottle. It was called Mom’s Hefeweizen from the 650 ml bottle. Poured a hazy light orange, good head retention. Lively carbonation, nice puffy off-white head that lasted. Nose had orange, and coriander, maybe some of the ginger. Flavors were similar, finished prickly with some decent flavor. More like a wit than a hefe, but it was still enjoyable.

Just had to try this one on Mother’s Day. Wheaty aroma has a strong yeasty overtone - it smells very much like a packet of brewer’s yeast. (No surprise there, eh?) Pours a clear solar yellow with a typical white head. Flavor is wheaty with just a whisper of lemon and a whisper of grass. Smooth texture has average body and just a little fizz. I’ve had better, but this is palatable. Happy Mother’s Day!

clear dull straw pour with good whitish head. Very wheaty aroma. Coriander on the flavor, with hints of ginger and slightly noble hop bitterness. Medium full body, and not overly carbonated or partiularly refreshing, more velvety. Not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 ounce bottle that poured a cloudy golden color, aromas of coriander, wheat, citrus, and slight bubble gum. Flavors are the same, with the focus on the coriander, and enjoyable in the Florida heat.

Hazy gold color, citrus aroma. A little weak but crisp. Foamy head and very refreshing overall.

22 oz bottle. Pours gold with lingering white head. Aroma of wheat and citrus. Flavor of orange peel, coriander, and sweet dough. Fairly refreshing. I think I’d like another on a hot summer day.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bomber poured into a shaker. Pours a clear gold with about a finger of white head. Aroma of citrus and wheat. Taste is light sweet. Wheat and citrus. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, very good. Would be great for drinking outside on a hot summer day. I’ll probably buy this again some time over the summer.

Bomber brought back from Rogue in Portland. Pours a hazy straw color with small white head. Nice aroma with full floral and citrus flavor up front and a little hoppy kick. Really enjoyable and refreshing.
