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

October 9th, 2012 - Snoqualmie’s 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). It’s 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. It’s 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.

If you like German Hefe’s 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 doesn’t bode well. The finish is husky and has even more of that odd wine and grape note. Not that good.

Sampler @ Chuck’s. A perfectly normal and pleasant beer, though I wouldn’t 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.

22 oz. bottle from the local Safeway. Hurray! I’m so ebullient this evening because I get to drink this beer. This beer has a wonderful hazy orange/yellow appearance. The head is nice, fluffy, and tight. This looks pretty damn good. A little bit of wheat, orange, and cream hit my nostrils. It’s not dangerously pungent, but it does have a subtle aroma. Lots of wheat and orange hit the taste buds. It doesn’t have the richest texture in the world, but it still is nice. This has a nice lingering citrus flavor. Oh boy, oh boy, this is decent. I feel like I’m skipping around on rainbows. I feel like a piece of melting butter on a big ol’ pile of flapjacks. The orange flavor is nice because it is complimented by a subtle cream flavor. Decent, stuff, but this style tends to have problems in terms of quality.

The Dan Journal #415. Tasted 10/25/10. 22oz bomber. Sedimented yet clear with a straw golden hue. Spiraling whispy white head. Aromas of lemon citrus and mild doughy yeast. Light to medium bodied with a crisp and tangy palate. A little thin in the body. Bitter tangy citrus and a touch peppery. Mild earthy tang and slightly musty. Meh...
