COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 oz bottle. Pours unfiltered orange with a creamy white head. Wheaty aroma, slight caramel note. Soft mouthfeel. Not that wheaty or fruity in the flavour rather malty. Mild malty finish.

Ungstrup (28458) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2004
[At Fete de la Biere 2004, Lausanne] A clear orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is slight of wheat. The flavor is sour wheaty with notes of caramel. A boring flavor in a boring beer.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2005
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Quite different from the Sam Adams Weiss Bier. This is more of an American interpretation of a German wheatbeer. More dry and less fruity than a typycal Bavarian Wheat. Lacks some refinement I think. Full orangey colour and a very finy white and creamy head.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 1, 2004
Hazy golden color. Quite poor, paper, the typical Weizen character is hidden; a small hoppy note…

bu11zeye (11760) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2009
(Bottle, courtesy of mar) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of banana, caramel, wheat, and soap. Flavor of wheat and caramel.

argo0 (11181) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 13, 2004
(12 oz bottle, best by 3/05) Cloudy cider topped by small off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, bubblegum, light banana, lemon. Taste is medium sweet, some banana and bubblegum. Finishes with lemon acidity and grassy bitterness. Light body, no real crispness. Nothing to recommend here.
