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!

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2004
12 oz bottle, weizen glass. Wheaty malt (L); banana, clove aromas. Simple, clean aroma. Large, creamy, white head is slowly diminishing and sits on a deep, hazy, straw body. Moderately sweet throughout with a nice wheaty tang in the finish. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: I wouldn't have known this was a Sam Adams.

12 oz bottle, part of the "brewmasters collection" which also of course includes the "light." I'm prejudiced already. But it looks good. Bright golden/orange opacity, topped my mountains of zesty foam. So far... but the nose is pretty boring and simple, lemony, weak, no real hint of spice. Thin and weak on the tongue, too, I'm afraid. There is a little bite towards the end, and I can taste some breadiness and banana, but ultimately this seems closer to the beer of a mundane brewpub that tries to hit all the most popular easy-drinking styles so as not to scare away the Coors drinkers. Not foul, not bad, not unpleasant; just sitting there like a lump of nothing.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2004
Hazy orange in color with a fairly impressive white head. Spritzy, lemony aroma with mild hops and yeast in the background. Not very complex. Some yeast and malt in the flavor profile. Dominated by lemony flavors. Not great, but not bad for an American Wheat.

Hangover (1100) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JAN 11, 2004
Pours a cloudy orange with a lasting off-white head and nice persistant lace. Aroma is of yeast, light fruit and banana. Hops hit you up front followed by a smooth, yeasty finish. Not much wheat evident to me. An odd take on a hefe... when warmed it more closely resembles the style though. Overall, I liked it... once again sam adams does not disappoint. I'll buy it again.

Has a clouded orangish color and a metallic smell. The taste is not as thick as I like for a wheat and it has a metallic aftertaste which I also do not like. Overall a pretty poor hefeweizen.
