2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.
