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.

Not a bad Hefe, but a little too light on the palate. Makes for a nice cold beer on hot summer days. Yellow color is too clear for a Hefe, but for the price it's not bad. The touch of lemon with wheat is good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355ml bottle. Golden pour, slight haze. Not much aroma. Flavor is sweet wheat, no real yeast character. Its mundane, not great. Needs a re-up.

tfontana (184) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle from Schnucks. Aroma is weak ester/stale beer. Appearance is hazy yellow with 1 finger-width white foamy head and minimal lacing. Taste is very mild sweet followed by mild to moderate bitterness. Palate is light bodied with thin texture and flat carbonation and long bitter finish. Overall, a pretty weak taste, and what there is is too unbalance to the bitter side for this beer. Better alternatives elsewhere.

12 ounce bottle from State Line. Pours a hazy orange-yellow with a large foamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of strong wheat, tropical fruits, citrus and a hint of smoke. The taste is wheat, caramel, orange, mango, mild clove. Medium bodied, mild lingering spice.

This a great starter craft beer. Its a little off at the end and there isnít enough hops but if youíre not a hop head you love this brew.

Aroma is some malts. Taste is hints of wheat, but far from one of the better wheat beers. Overall not a great hefeweizen.

Just really bad. Very watery, bitter, flavorless. Not a wheaty, yeasty, clove-y brew like a Hefe should be. Donít bother with this one!
