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!

Low aroma score is from the ’lack of’ scent. Grains and grass, slight citrus. Pours the classic cloudy deep yellow. Quickly diminishing head. Palate is oily to creamy. Taste is somewhat bitter, somewhat sweet with a over carbonated sizzle. Lasting bitter aftertaste. Not too bad.

Originally rated on 5/19/08. This hefe is a bit light on taste, not very falvorful, slight hints of wheat, some citrus, pretty plain overall. very middle of the pack for this style.

I’ve had worse beer, but I haven’t had worse beer like this one. Flavor is of over ripe malty (?) bananas that lingers heavily on the palate. Somwht bitter. Heavy, hard to get down. I bought a variety case of Samuel Adams at Sam’s Club and was cursed with 4 bottles of this. I drank one and used the other three to make banana bread. If you happen to be stuck with this beer, just use it as your liquid in banana bread, dump it down the drain or give it away.

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale wheat malts, light spices, moderate citrus character; pretty basic middle to low Hefe.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
Bouteille 12oz. De couleur dorée et voilée. Léger nez de blé, léger de houblon floral avec des notes herbeuses, léger de levures fruitées (agrumes) aux notes épicées (clou de girofle). Plutôt mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen avec une texture très légèrement aqueuse. Léger goût de levures fruitées (agrumes, traces de poires) avec de faibles notes épicées (clou de girofle) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un moyen goût de blé avec des notes de pain et de grains sucrés puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux aux petites notes florales. Post-goût moyen, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux aux petites notes florales avec des notes de blé et quelques traces fruitées (agrumes).

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a medium white head. Wheat aroma with moderate malt and light caramel. Rather bland, mostly malt flavor with a touch of caramel. A touch of fruit and wheat in the finish.
