3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweetwater Waterkeeper Hefeweizen has a thin, white head (small shelf glass), a very hazy (powdery sediment suspended throughout), yellow-gold appearance, bubble streams, and a small amount of lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of spiced white bread, coriander, and a touch of lemon peel. Taste is of those elements, with some banana pudding, orange chutney, a shade of hop bitterness, and white pepper. Mouthfeel is medium and fluffy, and Sweetwater Waterkeeper finishes dry, easy going, and refreshing. RJT

Not usually a wheatbeer/hefeweizen drinker. But this is a decent one, heck its from Sweetwater. Got it on tap with a slice of lemon. Excellent carbonation. Great summer brew for our hot summers here in Florida.

Sweetwater Waterkeeper is a close resemblance to the German originals. Banana and clove in the nose. Pour is hazy but still translucent. Nice head. Taste is big on the banana followed by some cloves. Finish is banana breath. Waterkeeper is a refreshing Summer brew made in the USA.

Crisp clean light biscuits sweetness with good clove and bananas presence, basically to style with light hints of hoppiness in a mildly bitter finish. Very good American interpretation.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is a traditional banana, clove, and wheat combination. It has a big, white, fluffy head which reduces to a thick soapy ring with good surface coverage on top of a cloudy gold (with hints of brown) body. A messy lace is left behind. The taste is a medium sweet with a medium light bitter. The light body beer has a thin texture and a creamy carbonation. It finishes with banana, clove, and grain. It’s crisp with an aftertaste that has notes of banana and lemon, with a light clove and bread flavor.
