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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Schlafly Tap Room, Lambert Airport edition. Hazed pale straw pour with a tall white head. Mostly just bread on the nose. A touch of soap and floral hops, maybe some yeast, too. Kind of lemony as well. Flavor is slightly tart, but as with the nose, is dominated by bread/malt. Fairly sweet, with a light peppery bitterness. Sort of yeasty. Could take it or leave it.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer pours a hazy golden yellow color with white head. Aroma is kind of light with notes of wheat. Not the greatest Hefeweizen, but it isnít the worst either. Great on a summer evening with a lemon wedge.

Hazy golden pour with little head. Aroma of bread, cloves, lemon. Easy drinking with a lager like mouthfeel. Not the greatest in style but good enough

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from old backlog notes. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have pale wheat malts, some doughy character, light citrus, light spice, not really a good Hefe, oh we have it classified as a wheat ale which makes more sense. Meh.

I enjoyed this beer. It is mild but goes down smooth on a hot day. I added a lemon wedge as thr bottle suggested and voila great summer evening beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light straw color with a small white head that doesnít stick around. Aroma is pretty mild; citrus, a little wheat. Taste is the same with the addition of a slight banana flavor. Pretty thin but extremely drinkable. Nice beer for warm weather, otherwise itís pretty forgettable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Smells of subtle wheat, hints of bubblegum. Taste is citrus, hints of spice. Medium-bodied with with a prickly texture and a fizzy texture, Schlafly Hefeweizen finishes with a lingering citrus tartness.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Slightly hazy gold. Aroma and flavour of mild grains. Schlafly has not impressed me with their standard lineup-- another dud.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a golden haze with a good white head. Aroma is very bland, maybe a very small sweet note. Taste is slight malt, very thin, somewhat sweet again but no fruit or honey. Overall a very underwhelming beer, though somewhat drinkable.
