COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This American version of a traditional Bavarian wheat beer is pale gold in color, flavorful and very enjoyable. Two row malted barley and malted wheat give it a crisp but layered maltiness with a light sweetness. Hand selected Spalt Spalter hops impart a bright finish and Bavarian yeast adds a special spiciness. Cheers! Jim Koch

Cloudy golden with small off-white head. Aroma is clove, banana, wheat, some orange with light grassy. Taste is much the same, though the wheat is more pronounced. Carbonation a bit above average, though par for the style. Altogether, SA does a pretty decent job with this one.

A very good Hefe. Impressed Sam Adams did such a good job. Nice hazy amber color with a decent white head. Banana aroma, somewhat floral as well. Some hops in the taste as well as the hint of banana. Pretty smooth and I'd like to have this again.

This is a pretty decent hefe. I added the yeast sediment to my beer. Pretty good cloudy light gold color, with some typical wheat beer smell and taste: notes of bananas and clove. Moderate hop bitterness, somewhat dry. Smooth and easy to drink.

An unclear orang beer with a beutiful head. The aroma is very sweet - with non of the sourness that German hefeweizen usually have. The flavor is sweet, wheaty and malty - and no bitterness. All in all an OK German hefeweizen - but a boring example on my tastebuds.

Hazy orange color. Yeasty banana aroma. Yeasty flavor with hints of citrus and clove. Medium bodied. A nice effort.

Bottled. Muddy pale orange. Big banana aroma. Sweet and yeasty with rounded mouthfeel. Stylish and authentic.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2003
Hazy straw color with a wispy white head. Thicker powdery feel. Citrus, bubblegum and cloves nose. Wheat and malt flavors start and then a sharp bitterness kicks in that distracts. Not a bad effort.

Surprisingly good. Orange, cloudy, big white head. Bubblegum, banana, cloves, yeast.

A nice fruity hefeweizen. Poured a murky brilliant orange with a moderate, coarse head. Big yeasty, fruity flavor with evident banana and citrus.

Ya know, I keep expecting Samuel Adams' brews to be more "generic" tasting--but each one I try is a pleasant surprise. Their weiss beer pours a nice golden color with a pretty head. Very cloudy (as it should be for an "unfiltered" beer?) Not a whole lot going on in the aroma. Taste is quite pleasant with merely a hint of banana; no cloves that I could detect. Very smooth and drinkable--especially on a hot day.
