2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle into Weizen glass. Slightly hazy golden yellow color with white head. Aroma is kind of light; notes of wheat, bread and peppery. Taste is light too of the aroma notes, maybe adding a slight lemon quality. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp, smooth with dry finish. Was expecting more Hefeweizen qualities since the bottle calls it such. So decent wheat ale, disappointing Hefe.

2.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle direct from the Schlafly Tap Room in St Louis. Beautiful pour with a fresh, foamy head. Color is a pale yellow-gold with the slight haze typical of unfiltered wheat beers. Aroma is almost non-existent with just a hint of mustiness. Taste is crisp with a mild citrusy sweetness that is mouth-filling, refreshing and well balanced. The taste lingers briefly on the palate with no aftertaste whatsoever. A dangerously drinkable heffeweisen!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, from Party Town. Bottled with love on 6/06/13. Shared with b3shine. Mostly clear golden yellow color. Thin bit of white head on the surface, leaves a couple tiny dots of lace. This smells distinctly light a pilsner, which is very odd. Bready, and peppery, itís an alluring pilsner smell, but totally out of place and unexpected for a beer that calls itself a hefeweizen. No banana, vanilla, spice notes that youíd expect.. Taste is moderate bitter, minimal sweet. Tastes more like a lager than an ale, much less sweet than any wheat ale Iíve ever head. Hint of lemon citrus. Lighter body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation, lightly dry finish. A pretty good, light, refreshing pils. Thatís how I rated this. A hefeweizen, or a wheat ale, even... Itís way off the mark

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to taster (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks decent; a slightly hazy gold with white lacing. Smells alright, but like a pilsner; doughy and a little hoppy. Tastes like it smells with light lemon on the back. Average on the palate. Decent, but nothing like a hefe, which dings it on itís overall score.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light cloudiness over a straw colored body with a small white head and little lacing. Grassy aroma with some spicyness and summer fruit notes. Cereal grains and modest yeastiness round out the taste. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, light bodied, with a short lived finish

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from bottle, light yellow color. This is not a hefe. I wouldn't even put it in the wheat category. Like a pale lager. Light taste, lemony, but not much else.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Chattanooga, Tn. - Riverside Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling light golden pour with a wispy white head. Fruity aroma with hints of nectarines and gum balls. Flavor is decidedly sweet with some gumball notes, loght clove,faint lemony citrus. Not overly exciting, leaning to bland but not distasteful. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky and full. More American Wheat than Hefeweizen.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Wow, really? Pours a slightly hazy very pale yellow. Small fizzy head. More like an average American "wheat beer" than a hefe. Nothing else besides wheat, sweet corn, and a slight lemon note. I had to ask for a lemon to squeeze in it to make it palatable, so that says enough.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy golden color. The head is a two finger white shade. I like the creamy texture, and the lacing as well. Donít know why, but I find it a bit more attractive than the typical hefeweizen, even if the head lacks staying power.
S: Itís more of a regular APWA than anything. The most notable element is some earthy, zesty hops. No real sense of banana, clove, or bubblegum esters here.
T: This is not much of a hefeweizen. The wheat flavors and finishing, lemony hop qualities are pleasant...but the lack of notable esters really hurt this one. In general, itís not really flavorful. Good hop profile, though.
M: Too heavy for the lack of flavor presented on the palate. This should go down much easier than it does...though to be fair, most of it *is* due to the boring flavor. Carbonation is strong like expected.
O: Meh. Not a bad generic wheat ale, but itís not a hefeweizen. Iíd be a lot more forgiving of it had it not been called that - yet alas, since itís advertised as such, I have to compare it to the ones from SN, Troegs, or Weihenstephaner. And it just fails in that regard.
