2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Cloudy pour from bottle. Clean, fruity wheat taste. Not offensive, but nothing new or original here. With so many graet hefe’s out there, I would suggest you take a pass.

Way to much coriander upfront. Wheat flavor toward the end is nice, but I’m just not a fan of this much spice.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle->pilsner: Pours a small, frothy, white head atop a hazy, light orange body. Aroma of a barnyard and grain. The body is light, texture is thin, and the finish is chalky. Flavor is short, being lightly bitter. Almost what I’d expect from Sam Adams, however.

Not a huge fan of this one had an overall bitterness from the hops and the aftertaste was not what was expected from sam adams. Maybe I got a bad batch but this was not a very good beer

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Refrigerated bottle poured into a glass. The color is golden and hazy. Smells like wheat and has a little head that disappear quickly. I would call this an american wheat rather than a true hefeweizen. Below average for the style. Will not buy again.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours to a small white head with limited carbonation. A rather cloudy appearence that is somewhat bland on the taste buds. It has the flavor of drinking hay which isn’t to surprising considering it’s a wheat beer. No bitter aftertaste a plus. No Sam Adams best, but does okay for a Hefeweizen.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Poured a hazy dark yellow with a medium sized white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma was full of banana and yeast notes. Flavor was light with sweet bananas and yeast.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured the stereotypically cloudy blonde color with a 2-finger white head. Mild aroma of banana esters with an undertone that was kind of peppery. Palate was light, as one would expect from the style. Light lemony taste with a slight pepperyness underneath. Somewhat yeasty up front though. Decent.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12. oz bottle from the Summer Sampler pack lured out of my girlfriend’s mothers basement. Pours a hazy golden pour, decent offwhite head that dies to a very small head, clings. minor lacing. Aromas are lemon, flaked wheat, a touch of skunk, with citrusy feel. Dough/bread. Mediocre, finishes clean, a bit of a citrus and bready stick. A so-so wheat beer that I can do without.
