COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A golden unfiltered wheat beer that is truly cloudy and clearly superb.

Smooth and fruity. A cloudy golden color. A very wheat-like aroma. A foamy white head. Not bad at all. A refreshing wheat beer with lunch.

There is not much to complain about this Hefe. Upon setting up to review this, I was pretty skeptical. That's probably due to the fact I had lost faith in the American Hefe....see Pyramid...blech! This pours a very cloudy yellow/orange tequila sunrise look. Smells of lemons, wheat...I found the taste suprisingly chewy, with a nice body despite the style. Citrus and just a pinch of banana that does not hinder. Less-than stellar mouthfeel, but I cannot argue how refreshing the brew is on a whole . This is not as spicy as say a German, but this malty-wheat brew is a winner. Do not compare this to Pyramid, it's not even in the same league...not even in the same sport! To quote Pulp Fiction if I may.

Cornflakes anyone? Very mild flavor with a citrusy nose. Cloudy yellow appearance with a quickly diminishing head. Actually a nice beer.

Not bad, but that really that great. Would hardly know its a Hefe if it didn't say it on the bottle. Has good taste, and a nice aroma.... just not enough of it. If they made it more potent, could have great potential.

Yellowish, cloudy color. Not much head. Thin bodied. Slight hint of what a hefe should taste like are in there, but you really have to be looking for them. Won't take one of these home again.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2005 I have a soft spot in my heart because it was one of the first micros I ever had back in the early 90’s, but I know now that this really isn’t that great of a beer. Very little head, very cloudy appearance and very little aroma. Flavor is somewhat bitter and not very complex. Had a couple before the U of O/Michigan game and it tasted pretty good, but mostly because the Ducks won.

Solid cereal-colored beer, completely opaque with a solid creamy-air head. Little aroma and actually little flavor, but smooth, sweet and vaguely corn-flaked.

wulfhere (217) - Billings, Montana, USA - FEB 11, 2004
Bottle: golden, somewhat cloudy with a decent head that faded leaving nice lace as I killed the beer. Fresh nose of spicy floral hoppiness--maybe Tettnanger? Nice light body with a mild maltiness, some yeast presence and mild wheat wang on the back end. decent session beer.

I was pleasently suprised at the quality of this beer seeing as I picked it up for about 7 bucks at meijer. Cloudy orange color, white head, and nice citrus aroma. Slightly bitter but overall good flavour.

Small white head that quickly fades. Hazy gold with the white glow of the yeast in suspension. Lightly citrusy, yeasty nose. Med/light body.Yeasty, light malt flavors. Finish is dry. A quaffable american wheat.
