Guerde (1162) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 16, 2014
(bottle from Sparky, thanks!) Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a significant amount of fizzy carb jetting up the glass and a medium white fluffy head. Aroma contains a ton of stale bread, light skunk, perhaps coriander, and maybe a little bit of funk. Smells more like an attempt at a belgian ale than a hefeweizen. Flavor tastes a little more reminiscent of the style, with an abundant amount of wheat bread, faint banana chip, lingering lemon, with a snappy, dry finish that could be mistaken for being bitter. Mouthfeel is creamy and carb is spot on. Overall this isn’t an exemplar of the style, but it’s pretty refreshing and would make for a nice summer session beer.

BOSSbrewer (1478) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow with about one inch of white foamy head. Wheaty and yeasty on the nose with some spice. Flavor falls flat a bit. Finishes somewhat dry. Overall refreshing.

DiarmaidBHK (3371) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine Glendale. Pours opaque yellow with a half inch of white foam. Not much on the nose. A bit fruity on the tongue but not particularly bright or interesting. Finishes dry. Eh!

martinrumsam (498) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2013
Draft. Hazy yellow with white head. Citrus and grass aroma quite a sweet lemony taste to start with some spices at the end. Much more fruity than most authentic German hefeweizen but a refreshing summer drink when in California

Crispy34 (356) - Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Draft. Aroma he slightest bit of malt with the hefe yeast taking it over. The appearance a hazy yellow with a thin white head. The taste starts slightly citrus hefe then slides into a spicier almost pepper hefe flavor. The palate leaves a yeasty hefe flavor on palate. Overall, a decent hefe. Would try again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to joeneugs. Pours hazy gold. Nose of wheat, citrus, lemon, and believe it or not, polish sausage. Very full body, full flavored. Heavy wheat, and honey. Lemon citrus finish with maybe some kind of spice, clove? Not bad, pretty good Hefe.

A good hefe but not extraordinary. Good balanced flavor with a pleasant aftertaste. Similar to widmer's hefe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
