COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Haystack Hefeweizen is a German-inspired wheat beer crafted from 60% malted wheat, Two-row Pale and Vienna malts, and finished with noble German hops. We ferment this with our American ale yeast for a spicy, citrus aroma and clean, mellow flavor with yeast overtones. Please gently re-suspend yeast prior to serving

On tap at the brewery. Hazy golden/yellow pour with a white head. Lemon and citrus aromas. Tasty and smooth with lemon and wheat highlights. A very solid Hefeweizen. Good body and mouthfeel.

Draught at Kingís Hardware, Seattle
Cloudy blond color with creamy head. Both aroma and flavor are anonymous; smooth, with low bitterness; canít even relate this to a hefeweizen

Draft at the source. Cloidy yellow color, fluffy white head. Aroma of lemon and straw. Taste is similar. Plain and boring.

Lots of wheat on the nose a little lemon. Light fruity yeast. Standard American here nose. Pours hazy yellow orange thin head. Flavors of wheat malt cereal grains light fruity sweetness and lemony notes. Brightly carbonated. Easy to drink.

October 9th, 2012 - Snoqualmieís Porter was a quaint surprise in a crowd of excellent beers available in Washington, but the Hefeweizen is somewhat less so (though not as low as its scores on Ratebeer would suggest). Itís dressed in the standard uniform of a hefeweizen - cloudy, golden in color and textured by the suspended yeast. The aroma is fuzzy and spritzy, with a moderate note of fresh wheat and a but of soapiness, followed by the slightest, almost elusive smell of apple. The flavor is considerable sweeter, with a pronounced profile of white grapes followed by a quick aftertaste that tapers down to a low, monotone wheat note. Itís an acidic hefe by personal standards, but otherwise, unremarkable in flavor, and best served as a regular, affordable hefeweizen to go with a daring meal.

Tap @ Hotel Vintage bar, Seattle. Nice head with good duration. Color is hazy golden. Aroma and taste are yeast, wheat malt, fruits and hops.

If you like German Hefeís try this one. It is full of flavor. Big big wheat flavor. Beautiful cloudy beer. The creamiest Hefe I have had. Rating are way too low for this brew.

Bottle: I even resuspended the yeast like they recommend. Pours a hazy orange color with a nice white head. The nose is nice and toasty with some light biscuit, tangy yeast and a touch of grape notes. The flavor is husky with a light fruity grape and wheat note that doesnít bode well. The finish is husky and has even more of that odd wine and grape note. Not that good.

Sampler @ Chuckís. A perfectly normal and pleasant beer, though I wouldnít go so far as to call it a hefeweizen. The guy from the brewery pouring samplers said it was a NW-style hefeweizen which means they use their typical yeast strain and threw in a bunch of wheat. Totally drinkable but a little blah.

Bomber from Big Star in Seattle. Pours hazy gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is mostly citrus. Flavor is mostly wheat. Not much banana, spice, etc. More like a nice wheat based pilsner, if you can imagine such. Citrus in a light way. Ok drink.
