2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Beef OíBradys in Lynn Haven, FL. Well folks, other than Red Hood IPA, this is the pinnacle of available "craft brews" in Panama City. No wonder I want to open my own place. This stuff is ok, but to think this is as good as it gets makes me want to heave. The pour offers a small white head that quickly fades. Hazy gold with the white glow of the yeast in suspension. Lightly citrusy, yeasty, wheat-grainy nose. Med/light body.Yeasty, light malt flavors, with maybe a hint of fruit...maybe bananas?. The mouthfeel is very thin. They throw a slice of orange or lemon in which doesnít help things at all. Finish is dry...yep, thatís about it. Well, I guess you could do worse.

I was a bit disappointed by this. I thought that it was rather light and did not have the nice, sweet and spicy taste that I like in a good wheat beer. Ok, but lacking some grunt.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is light giving off a hint of lemon. Taste is not as complex as the German Hefes, there was not much spiciness or clove notes. Pretty sweet with flavors of banana, wheat and lemon. A little bland. The mouthfeel was full and round. Not bad by any means but it needs more. Eh.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy and gold. Not much head at all. Not much aroma either. Smells like wood. Not a lot of flavor or bitterness. Wheat is the most dominant flavor. Gets almost soapy tasting after a bit. It would probably be an adequate beer on a warm summer day after mowing the lawn.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Vastly overrated, but I guess itís indicative of the American hefe style. Murky beer, tastes slightly less wretched with a lemon slice, which should tell you that itís very citrus-heavy to begin with. Iím not a fan of the American hefeweizens, and this beer does nothing to change that.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a very hazy golden color. Aroma is sweet and hoppy. Mild wheat flavor. A little sweetness and hoppiness. Not a ton of flavor, but it is a good refreshing brew.

One of my favorites, but I admit to enjoying it more on draft than in bottles! Fortunately, more places in the NYC/NJ area are carrying it!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This brew pours a cloudy yellow with a light white head. The aroma is kind of sweet smelling and the taste is that of any typical hef.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had a lot of floaters (if memory serves me correctly - which it might not) but thatís typical of an unfiltered wheat beer. Overall, nice flavor and aroma. Iím looking forward to trying some more from Widmer Brothers as this is my first beer tasting from them.
