Pours a cloudy orange to a white head. Definately a fruity aroma. Flavor leans on the hoppy side without being too bitter.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2004 Like I've said before "Hefeweizens are always good" This is no exception. Nice smooth, clean taste. May be one of my favorite Samuel Adams brews. As Samuel Jackson would say "MMM MMM BITCH!!!"

My boy Sam has made a great beer here. I like the taste and the appearance is brilliant. It is the best beer made by Mr. Adams.

Pours a tall head with oily lacing. A typical opaque appearance with a healthy orange color. Has a very powerful aroma of perfumed malt suggesting banana and cherry pipe tobacco. Banana remains a strong element in the flavor as well, which also retains a healthy dose of straight malt and a slightly pungent aspect. Hops are better-defined in the finish, and later on this is complemented by a blossoming raw grain kick, evidently the product of the raw yeast and unmalted wheat used. Very full, rich mouthfeel and at the same time crisp and refreshing. Again I commend Boston Brewery for producing one of the best in its class on a larger production scale than some.

Golden, but not clear, no banana flavor, which is a good thing, because I hate bananas. Very cloudy look, almost a sweet smell, very smooth, and a sweet after taste.

Bottle: pours orange-yellow, hazy, white head. Nice fluffy, fruity aroma, wee hint of some vague spice. Light bodied, smooth, fruity flavors with a bit of hops to balance the sweetness, very little bitterness. Vague hint of spice. One of the best American wheats I’ve had.

Served in a Chilled Pilsner Glass. Very smooth tastes goes dwon very well. One can taste the wheat in the beer. The head is good and stays for a few minuites but soon dies down. Has a lemony flavor to it as well! A very good brew that will not dissapoint hefeweizen fans!

This is the only Hefeweizen that I have found that I like. The problem is that I can only purchase it in the ’Brewmaster 6-Pack’ which means I get 2 in the pack. I really do like this beer though - it has a great light flavor and a slightly bitter creamieness. This is a very good light summer beer.
