Coors makes a better American wheat than this (blue moon). Overpowered by lemon in both aroma and flavour. Comporable but inferior to the sam adams summer. Bottom on my list of wheat beers. Absolutely none of the spice one would hope for from a wheat beer. Prototypical appearance which raises expectations, then dashes them with the first sip. A beer for people who do not like wheat beers.

Dry and crisp. Not wheaty. Most definitely not a favorite of mine, either. Par for the course when you think of American wheats, which I think don’t stack up to their German cousins.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2004 Clouded yellow, milky appearance, decent head formation. Grainy aroma. Smooth sweet malt flavor, fairly grainy, no spice, mildly bitter finish.

As far as Hefe’s go, this is not one of my favorites. I prefer a more traditional banana/clove/wheat flavor which this one lacks.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2003 Cloudy banana body with medium white head. Aroma is sweet banana. Taste is banana, mildly sweet, light mint/herbal. Not bad, but not great either.

My favorite beer so far. Still have many to try. Love the thickness and the aftertaste. Needs to be cold while drinking. Not A very good bottle beer.

Not to bad for a hefeweizen. A touch of lemon flavor is already in it, so be careful when adding your own. I think this is one of my more favored beers from Widmer Brothers, especially around summer time.

It has a good flavor, but it is a little sweet for my tastes.

The cloudy appearance is due to the non-filtration of the Hefe, which seems to add more bite.

Never had this from a bottle.. On tap has a good head, cloudy, a sort of spicy citrus aroma. Easy drinking brew. Not a bad beer in its own right. This can not be compared to a Bavarian style hefe. This is some bastardization of the style. It seems to have defined its own. American Wheat, whatever the hell that is.
