Pours a very cloudy orangish yellow. Almost looks like some sort of fruit juice. It even smells like fruit juice. It even tastes like fruit juice. Lots and lots of citrus and fruit on the nose and the tongue. Thin mouthfeel. This shit flat out sucks.

Has a nice look, seems to fit the style of a hefe. Itís yellow with a clean white head. There is a definate citrus aroma along with some wheat and a hint of yeast. Itís refreshing, with a nice wheat and lemony citrus flavor. Some faint spice as well. Years ago this was my first non commercial beer and got me turned onto tring good beer so it has sentemential value to me, but it hasnít held up over the years as Iíve realised how much good beer there is. It still gets good points though.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2007 Much better at the brewery then in bottles, you get a lot more yeast flavor and more wheat. Pours very cloudy golden orange with a strong white head. Skip the lemon for me. This is the iconic american wheat, very light but well done hop finish that compliments the wheaty and yeasty flavor. Iím not a fan out of the bottle, but the draught version is nice.

Very cloudy and lots of citrus taste and aroma. I liked this beer the first few times I had it because it was different. But now, the taste is getting kind of old. Too much citrus, not enough spice to make it a good hefe.

On tap. It has a nice aroma, but nothing really stands out in the flavor except for a lemony bite and some coriander. It just doesnt have the spices that make German Hefes so much better than the microbrew counterparts.

MrRomero (1974) - Nolanville, USA - APR 20, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2005 Poured a cloudy orange with a thin head. Very plain hefe and virtually aroma free. Not much finish. Watery. Maybe light banana and light yeast. Unimpressive.

I just recently took a liking to Hefeweizens. I've always been a fan of citrusy beers, so i don't know what took me so long. This one was pretty good, but not the best i've tasted. Although, i couldn't even tell you what the best one i had was... all i know is it was on tap (it could have even been Widmer Bros., maybe the tap version was just much better).

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2004
Citrusy wheat and dusty yeast combine in an astringent imbroglio...A strange back bitterness for the style raises an eyebrow...Unchallenging and not quite pleasant enough to be a session weizen...

Cloudy light golden color with a large off white head. Heavy yeast and wheat aromas, with undertones of light citrus and mild spice. Seems to lack a real malt backbone. I would have to call this an american hefe. Better than most american wheats, but not up to par with the german hefes.
