2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
on draft at a bar at some ritzy hotel in downtown St. Louis / hazy golden yellow. the lemon helps. yes, very little flavor noted, but good anyway. i donít understand why this would rate under a 2. pale, indeed. light banana, light spice, yet completely refreshing albeit it being like water.

Very little flavor noted. Much paler than my limited wheat beer experience remembers. Unsatisfying.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Peach colored and cloudy with a loose white head. Sharp and fruit aroma with bread and yeast. Grainy and somewhat thin in body with a slightly hoppy finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled Nov 23, 2004. Light gold color, very hazy and cloudy. Small sized white fizzy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet, touch of spiciness. Light to medium bodied American wheat. Malts are fruity and crisp. Slightly spicy hops. Crisp and clean. Light and refreshing, just not much flavor. What there is nice, but I wish there was a little more of it. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled at the DC gathering. Not too impressed with this one. Vaguely hazy gold colour. Not much in the aroma. Certainly I didnít pick up any significant banana or estery notes. Just a hint of spice, but itís all a bit dull. The flavour is citric and rather sharp. Moderately refreshing, but not very interesting.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy blonde colour with a thin white head. Aroma of small amounts of curacao, wheat, corainder seed and a small sweetness. Light-bodied; Some pale malt tastes-not good at all. Aftertaste shows pale malt and isnít pleasant in the slightest. Overaell, not a beer worth spending the money on, try their ESB if available, but not this one! I sampled this 12 ounce bottle at the November RB party at Founders in Alexandria, Virginia on 20-November-2004.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to Hopscotch for bringing this back from Missouri!
Light lemon yellow color with a tall white head. Not much hefe haze, somewhat clear.
Sour yeast aroma is not quite right.
Very little flavor or body, this is disappointing. Far from a good Hefeweizen. Go find a Weihenstephan instead.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Thanks hopscotch. Clouded yellow with a splash of orange in it. Small off white head. Nose is strong wheat, light citrus and thin malt. Taste is malty and wheaty with some tart citrus notes. Not too bad but a bit average. Light yeast notes come through as well. Palate is thin but refreshing. I didnít have any cold water to drink so I chose this as the next best replacement and it worked! Finishes with faint flavors of the taste. Itís a dumbed down wheat and citrus with light yeast and malt. Drinkable if nothing else.

Pours a white//paleyellow color. No head. Aroma is wheaty, and malty. Flavor is somewhat thin, carbonated and a kick of wheat/malt/hops. Somewhat boring, but still a thanks to Heemer for this brew!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
2004 bottle @ the DCMDVA gathering courtesy of Hopscotch. Pours a solid golden color, small white head. Aroma of lemon, light yeast and mineral/wheaty notes. Flavor is light lemon, notes of metal, light yeast. Very watery, with little wheat substance. Fizzy, plain, rather boring and just way too thin. Carbonation attacks the palate and interupts the palate. American wheats do not have to be like this.
