I think in tasting this the standard needs to be the whole range of hefeweizens rather than the style category of "American Wheat". Nice yellow color with white head, but it is bland bland bland in the world of hefeweizens. Very easy drinking, but both in aroma and flavor there is little to distinguish it.

Notice the exact median score? Well, becasue that is about all this American Wheat could muster. I am glad that we have a seperate distinction for American Wheat as opposed to any other, because, I think the Americans often fall shy of the quality and complexity of the Germans. That is the case with this average example.

Bottle. A nice wheat that does not have that Godawful banana taste. I donít like wheats and I like this.

Kevin (2065) - New Mexico, USA - AUG 16, 2004
bottled. hazy lemon yellow with a fluffy white head. aroma of wet hay. wheaty(obviously) flavor of dry wheat with no fruity tastes, I.e banana. finish is crisp and dry. not a beer for after a day of yard work because it leavers you thirsty for more.

All of what one might expect from a U.S. hefe, so I won’t go into detail. I will say that this beer didn’t stand out in any way, and while full in the middle, it lacked assertiveness up front and on the finish...

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 15, 2004
Sample at the Taproom. Very light, cloudy...banana-caramel, malty nose, quite nice...fairly bland on the tongue though. Still, well put-together, as all the Schlaflys seem to be.

ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Cloudy yellow/white beer, big stand up on top of and outside of the glass head. Grainy wheat aroma. American ale yeast fruitiness, it is kind of lemony, in no way banana/clove like a bavarian. Very light refreshing body.

thegreenrooster (3175) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 20, 2004
Pours a light hazy yellow. No aroma. Flavor is flat,boring and lifeless. There is nothing even to compare it to. I donít know where they were going with this. This is probably the worst of this style I have had.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2005 Rerate. Same look but, light wheat and mild yeast aromas. Light wheat sweetness, with only a touch of citrus. Mild fruitiness. A mild wheat. Bottle (dated sample, Iím afraid). Hazed golden color with a fizzy white head. Light citrus and fruity nose with a heavy dry bread yeast aroma. Acidic lemon flavors with a sour dough finish. ti will visit this brewery one day and definitely will rerate with a fresh sample, but Iím dancing with this one now. This is a cross between an american wheat and a berliner weisse and misses both completely.

Malty, flavorful drink. I'm new to this style and it gave a good first impression. Will gladly drink some more.
