3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is a little grainy, has some fruity hop presence, and has a little bubblegum. Very nice balance - slightly sweet. A flavorful and enjoyable American wheat,

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 Bottled. It poured a murky golden/orange, very small white head. Sediment buildup on the bottom of the glass. This was my first unfiltered wheat, and I enjoyed it. Light hops flavor, with some malty sweetness. I would buy this again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap. This was a beautiful looking beverage in the glass, with a cloudy orange-ish color and decent foam. Unfortunately, the flavor did not live up to the looks, it's just bland and lacking any sort of distintive characteristic that compels to order another.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark yellow, cloudy with a light lacey head. A slight bready, citrus aroma. The same for the flavor...refreshing. I had this one out of the bottle and it is much better on tap. I have had this one many times and do enjoy it. It is always a stanby when nothing really good is available.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 Bland, without a whole lot of yeast character or esters that you might expect from a hefe. Slightly hazy medium pear gold. Enjoyable, drinkable, and a pretty solid brew, but not exceptional. Rerate, from bottle The bottled version of this had a lot more banana aroma and hop flavor. I nudged the rating up by 1 aroma point, and 1 flavor point.

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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
