COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hazy and golden in color, this brew is a fresh twist on the popular Hefeweizen style. Eureka and Lisbon lemons, from three growing regions in California, balance out the wheat malt character, resulting in a crisp and refreshing wheat ale with subtle lemon flavor. Cheers!

This pale wheat ale pours a light golden yellow and has the delicate taste of wheat and lemons. A great summer beer as it drinks lightly and tastes great. Another great beer from Sam Adams.

Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a large white head. Lemon, wheat and yeast aromas with a light hint of spice. Lemon flavor with wheat and yeast notes. Light hints of tart fruit and spices. Thin and light throughout. Similar finish with some added floral hop notes and a touch more spice.

Wife let me sample some of hers. Bottle into a pint glass. Hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus and yeast. Taste is light and refreshing, not much character though. Easy drinking for warmer weather.

Bottle->shaker. Hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is faint yeast, wheat, and citrus. Taste is same, but quite dull. Overall weak.

Gription79 (2425) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The lemon is noticeable, but it comes across sweet. Slight dough in the nose, making it hard to smell anything else. The flavor is dusty wheat beer, very little character.

chinchill (2657) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 17, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2013 This twisted hefeweizen has a fruity, mainly lemony, aroma, but with an unfortunate hint of old canned fruit. Similarly, the flavor is fruity with some lemon, as expected, but with a vague impression of old canned fruits and ripe bananas. No sign of hops in this mildly sweet brew. O: Not a beer style I’d seek out but even so, disappointing.

Sloghtly stale flavor, with a bit of yeast in te background. Dirty SA finish without much to get excited about. Ok, but not thrilled about this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
