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

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2005 When you call something a staple, usually that means it is superior to its competitors. In this case, Widmer Hefe is far from that. I use the term staple in regards to places I very rarely visit whom serve as many beers as I have fingers I have; if I’d lost an arm. When it comes down to a choice between macro pale lagers, widmer hefe, or going with a distilled alternative, about 50% of the time I’ll choose this. It’s very hazy yet lacks the complex yeastiness of its german counterparts. Clean and citrusy with a bit of funky wheat notes. Not outstanding; drinkable, yes, desirable, not on a good day.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2003 During the summer this is really not that bad. Rather refreshing with a lemon actually, but in the winter time this is like drinking water. I'm not rating this respective to these ideas however. Very smooth, but not so flavorful. A very standard Hefe for a very predictable evening.

very drinkable and nice tones but give me a weihenstephaner or a franziskaner.

A nice wheat, doesn’t need the lemon. Slight cloudiness adds to the look. Mild fruity notes. Very easy to drink due to good hops/malt combo.

Finally a pleasant surprise in the world of wheat. taste of banana and vanilla, and a cloudy body. No damn honey or cough syrup fruit in taste or smell. Bells is Better. (my new slogan to everything, maybe they’ll start paying me.)

A good Summer beer. Much better with a lemon slice to add some flavor. Not to impressed with its lack of something to offer like other wheat beers, but hey a novel try. I would by it again on a sunny day.

beerguy101 (5278) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 9, 2002
Medium gold color, slightly cloudy, medium head. A light bodied wheat beer. Light malts and hops. Good flavor, well balanced. Slight banana and clove taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is mostly neutral. Excellent beer.

Fairly weak and lacking in taste, this can’t even begin to hold a candle to Oberon (Bell’s). Maybe a lemon in this would not be a bad thing, at least it would give it some flavor.

I have never had the bottled version so I can only speak on the tap version. Beautiful wheat with nice lemony, grassy tones that help make this an extremely refreshing wheat beer.

Nice yellow unfiltered appearance, light sort of bland wheat flavor, somewhat hoppy.
