Had from bottle 01/26/03
As a fan of Hefeweizens, there isn't a much better beer to sit down in front of the TV for the Superbowl for. While I enjoyed the Widmer Hefeweizen, I have had better, but being the only available Hefe at my local Vons prompted the purchase. Pours an opaque yellow with a slight head that dissapates quickly. Aroma of citrus as is to be expected. Flavor has hints of malt and banana. Finishes nicely - easy to drink, a nice, easily accessible Wheat.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I dont know what it is about Wheat Beers, but after a hard days work, there's just about no style i enjoy calming down with than a wheat. It poured a cloudy dark yellowish color with a nice sized head given that i forced the hell out of it, more fizzy than creamy. Aroma of wheat and citrus, nothing surprising here. The taste is clean, wheaty, and nicely dry. Whats remaining of the head is leaving a nice creamy layer of lace on my glass...the head has become quite creamy by mid tasting and the wheat is really beginning to come through. Nicely refreshing for something so easily accessible, and a decent pick-up for us broke people.

This beer is way over-sold. You can get this almost everywhere on tap here in B'ham but that doesn't mean it is that great. It's not like disgusting or anything but it just doesn't have any ummph to it. It may be a good intro micro brew for some people but it always upsets my stomach every time I drink it.

One of the best hefes made in the states. A very accurate representation of the style....nothing outstanding but refreshing hefe goodness....citic, slight yeast, banana notes.

Very average hefeweizen. Typical citrus aroma and flavorings, cloudy goldish color. Perhaps if I had a lemon to go with it, it would have helped.

Get yourself a big glass and a lemon and go to town. This is a great beer to drink with a bunch of friends. Usually what we pick up for PS2 game nights.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is hazy dark yellow, dense tiny particles, bottle conditioned.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain), with light notes of orange/lemon.
Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A rather harsh flavor profile with an unpleasant aftertaste and weak aroma makes this one a no-repeat beer.

Unfiltered doesn’t exactly cover it. Can’t see through it. Lightly malty wheat nose. Flavor is light malt with light hop bite.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is one of the darker hefe"s although not as dark as some. It"s not on the pale end of the style anyway. Very yellowish light tan with a good wet creamy bright white head. The head wasn"t as big as the one on the really good hefes. The yeast gives this beer an almost pearlescent quality. The aroma is good citrus, although more organge or tangerine than lemon with nice floral/banana esters. You can smell the wheat in this one. The flavor is unusually BLAM for a hefeweizen. Schneider Weiss is huge bubblegummy esters, but this is great big wheat and malt backed up with just enough esters (which I"m actually tasting as banana instead of bubblegum for once) to balance the beer out. This is also a tad bit sweeter than most in the style.
