A typical hefeweizen. Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. Citrus in the aroma. Highly carbonated on the palate. Smooth and tasty. A mild hefe, however, not a lot of spice. Easy drinking.

Transfer from BA review on 10-16-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a huge white head. The head fades relatively fast to give a light level of lacing. Smell – The aroma was heaviest of wheat and a lemon citrus. Mixed with these are some aromas of yeast and a biscuit aroma. Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter lemon and wheat bread flavor. These flavors create a base for the beer. Some light yeasty flavors come to the tongue in the middle with a biscuit taste. At the very end more lemon and some orange come to the tongue and in the end leave a sweet and sour wheaty flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel -The body of the beer in on the medium side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. Both are very appropriate for the style and make for a easy drinking brew. Overall – A little lacking on complexity, but more sessionable. Overall it is fairly average (maybe a bit above).

It has a cloudy yellow/tan colored body with a tall three finger tall head. The head is off white in color and has a thick and creamy look that makes some nice sticky lace rings at the top of the glass. The aroma has a light yeasty/bready character with some hints of fresh citrus. Its flavor has a modest medium body with a light bready and yeasty character which is both earthy and fruity. There is a mild sweetness from the malt and a nice touch of lemon and orange citrus zest before the hops come in and add a slight bitterness and dryness. Light hop bitterness and dry yeast notes quickly fade from the tongue in the finish.

12 oz bottle at home from backlog notes 07. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a large off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale wheat malts, lemon citrus, hay, perhaps a hint of spice. There really wasn’t much to this. I will not be revisiting this.

These seem to magically appear at my house every summer during pool parties. Not my favorite but certainly goes down easy and I don’t feel too guilty just drinking it from the bottle.

rumproasts (2879) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 9, 2014
bottle. cloudy golden with small head. it’s like they took 9 parts of a very bland wheat beer, and then mixed in 1 part hefeweizen in. why can’t more american breweries make a proper hefe? all the parts are there, but they’re just so muted.

Vcoggins (39) - Cypress, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Pours a murky straw color with a white 2 finger head. Aroma is bready with malts, wheat, citrus, lemon grass. There is a very faint bubblegum or banana smell as well. Taste has wheat, German yeasts, a bit of clove and orange peel, faint citrus, tangy lemon grass. Mouth feel is medium bodied, medium to high carbonation.Drinkable Hefeweizen, but doesn’t taste like the greatest Hefeweizen. Almost more like an average wheat ale.

HuskerTan (497) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle. A- Wheat, corn, butter, lemon. A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, white head. T- Slightly sweet, corn, wheat, water, yeasty, subtle banana. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, wheat finish. O- Not too flavorful. Far from being horrible, but just lacks a lot of the great qualities I love in a Hefe. Not overly satisfying.

HIGHB4LL (529) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 10, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Appearance: great rocky white head, does not diminish, yellow-orange, cloudy, hazy, poor lacing. Aroma: heavy yeast, leaves, banana, mildly malty, hay. Palate: light body, thin oily texture, soft carbonation, wheat finish. Taste: medium sweetness, medium bitterness, slightly salty, very slight spice taste. Overall, not anything to rave about, though it is drinkable.

cbfobes (2293) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a hazy gold with a thin head, the aroma is a little bit of wheat and some banana, the flavor has a little bit of fruit and banana with clove but nothing crazy, pretty light mouthfeel, ugh, give me a Dancing Man to help me believe in hefe’s again.
