COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An authentic bavarian-style hefeweizen. Light and refreshing, with the hazy appearance and tangy flavor characteristic of its style.

While I pour it in the glass, it looks very light, there is no barely any foam present and it looks a bit murky. It has that bready wheaty aroma you expect from hefeweizens but this one seems really yeasty. I now realize that I should have sampled a different Smuttynose beer for my first voyage into their territory. This is way too bready for my senses. That person on the label should just let the glass run away.

Pours out a hazy golden yellow with about a half-inch of white foam that quickly falls to a light covering of bubbles. Some lace is left around the glass as this was consumed. From my experience most smutty nose product look a lot better in the head department but this was not bad. The smell was of wheat with a lemony zest as well as a bit of spiciness. Grainy cereal like flavors dominate the taste with a citric fruit spice about it. This one ends in a dry finish that leaved you looking for that next sip. Mouthfeel is almost medium with sufficient carbonation. It goes down fairly smooth and refreshing. Overall a solid example of the style that is refreshing and a good thirst quencher.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 13, 2004
2003 bottle. Pours a light yellow, mostly clear with a small white head. Nose of light malt grains and a bit of hay. Some yeast and corn flour. Flavor is very balanced, having light clove, honey, grains and a bit of toasted grains. Light citrus on the end, faintly sweet. This is not really a stylistic german hefe, but it’s good and drinkable. Medium body, no thinning.

hershiser2 (1232) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Paid $1.50 for a 12-oz single. Golden in color with a gigantic head. Slightly fruity and yeasty in the nose, but not much there. Sweet, slightly chocolate malty, believe it or not. Also very wheaty.

Cobra (1100) - - OCT 1, 2004
12 oz. brown longneck bottle. June slot notched in label, but no year indicated. Poured out a hazy, lemon yellow color, with a minimal white head. It never did form what I’d call a classic wheat beer head. Aromas are subdued tremendously, with the only real smell coming from the yeast itself. No lactic wheat tang, either. Fairly bland as far as wheat beers go. Medium mouthfeel, nothing special there. Tastes are very bland. Mostly a generic, bland, indescribable taste. Finished rather plain. Not my favorite wheat beer by far, but it would make a great lawnmower beer.

sallad (115) - USA - SEP 17, 2004
12oz bottle. Rocky white head, hazy pale straw color. Crisp malt and spicey fruit aroma with yeasty notes. Sharp, but low, hop bitterness followed by some smooth malt and tangy hops. Finish is dry and bland.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Now this is what I call a session beer. Light bready aroma and smooth, floffy head. Smooth, light, tasty with flavors of wheat, hay, yeast, malt and an oh so mellow bitterness. Light lemon adds just a bit of zing to it to make it really refreshing.

shadey (1911) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 18, 2004
Pour was golden yellow with a citrus aroma. Flavor to match. Nothing special at all, but not aweful to drink. Not what I was expecting from a German hefe.

Also probably a bit past its prime. I was surprised to find this is considered a winter beer, and that might explain why my summer sixpack tasted a bit off. Still, it isn’t the worst hefe I’ve had. Some subdued fruit tones and wheaty flavors. Wish it wasn’t as crisp...

guzzler67 (1526) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2004
My bottle may have been a month or two past its prime, so I’ve kept that in mind as I read through the other ratings. The nose developed none of the characteristics of a good hefeweizen; wheaty would be the most generous term. Appearance was not bad: hazy, golden with a small head. Lots of carbonation in the light-bodied, slightly sour, somewhat spicy taste. Tart, short-lived finish.
