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.

Bottled Nov. 14. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow. Very subtle throughout the smell, sip, taste and finish. Easy to drink to say the least, just not anything extraordinary here.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a small white head on it. Nose is extremely wheaty with a fair amount of skunk in it. Taste has a slight bit of citrus in there with some skunk as well. Not really a fan.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I had this at Fridays. Pours gold with a white head. Taste lemony, citrus. I thought was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an opaque yellow with a head that rapidly disappears. Aroma of straw and lemon and some bitter hop. Light flavor of lemon and wheat. Actually one of the more refreshing wheats Iíve had - not too sour or earthy. Iím surprised this isnít higher-rated. Perfect on a hot day.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The color of this beer is a hazy light yellow color with a large white head that fades quickly, and the aroma is a fairly simply blend of dough yeast and wheat. The taste is mildly sour and slightly sweet, and the palate combines a medium body, soft carbonation, slick texture, and a sour and malty finish.

Had at the Tap Room in St. Louis in the summer of 2011. I'm not generally a fan of the style. A drinkable beer especially in the summer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft from the schlafly tap room. Fairly average domestic hefeweizen. Nothing stood out as a special offering.

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!
