Samuel Adams Hefeweizen has a traditional spin on a classic American craft brewing style. This crisp, fruity wheat ale is cloudy, because the yeast has not been filtered out. Bavarian Spalt hops give the ale a crisp elegance, that is not bitter and leaves a clean aftertaste. Cheers!

12 ounce bottle, poured a cloudy orange color. Aromas of wheat, some spicy Belgium yeast, and light orange. Flavor is the same, for a commercial brewery this wheat beer was fairly good, really like that it was unfiltered and had some nice sediment in the bottle.

Not bad for a heff, but not my favorite. The unfiltered taste is interesting, and the additional orange flair is awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

seymour (1642) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Tasted from bottle in Brewmaster’s Collection mix-pack into nucleated pint glass. Pours a cloudy golden color with creamy white foam, somewhat lasting with a little lace. Aromas of grass, grain, fresh whole-wheat bread, slight citrus, lemon and pepper esters. Flavors of subtle malt and hops and mild fruitiness. Light body and watery mouthfeel, crisp, dry finish. True-to-style hefeweizen but forgettable.

Pours a cloudy, light orange, with a small off white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, and lemons. A little thin with a lemony wheat flavor and a grassy finish.

Syzzer (606) - Oregon, USA - AUG 25, 2011
The most neutral, boring Hefeweizen I have had. It is similar to the boston lager with a slight wheat aroma

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2012 Has the basic background, very background, of a hefeweizen, just not authentic and way too much like a regular American Wheat ale.
