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

Tasty brew with a very smooth finish. Rich, yet sweet flavor. Jim Koch has proven once again why he is the American Master of fine beers. As he says on every Sam Adams bottle, Cheers!

The best American Weiss Beer I have tasted. Beautiful aroma and appearance. The only drawback is that it finishes a little dry and flat. Otherwise an excellent Weiss beer.

Closest Iíve ever had to a true hefeweizen made in America. Saw it for the first time today and had to try it. Not quite the strong banana/clove esters but quite a good beer.

I really enjoyed this beer. Itís a very crisp & tangy wheat beer. Itís much better than I would have expected fm SA.

Quite an excellent domestic weiss. I was quite pleasantly surprised. Of course it comes in wussy 12oz bottles but what can you do.

Another winner from Sam Adams. The first wheat beer Iíve tried (Iím honest at least), but I can honestly say Iím just hoppiní for more. The subtle fruitiness in the aroma yields a sweetness on the tongue, and finishes smooth. Complex enough palate to leave you satisfied, yet urges you to drink more. I tip my hat to the Boston Brewing Co. for this one.

Sam Adams made this? I donít mean any disrespect, but I thought they were moving away from true to style craft beers. Excellent american Weiss, entirely true to the German style. In my opinion, this compares favorably to anything else in its style, foreign or domestic.
