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

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - AUG 16, 2003
I realize this is in the American Wheat category, but I really wanted this to taste like a German wheat. All the pieces where there, the cloudy appearance, the banana and yeast nose, but just in too small quantities for me. Also, it seemed a tad bitter for a hefeweizen. A drinkable beer, but a little light for my tastes. Like Trappist said, it just wasn't as good as I thought it would be.

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2003
Murky, deep golden beer. Small, creamy white head with decent lacing. Banana and yeast in the nose along with a touch of smoke. The flavor is of grapefruit and orange blossom honey. Astringent and lightly bitter. Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, dry finish with a touch of pungency.

Trappist (286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 11, 2003
Chewy. cloudy yellow beer, with a thin white head. Somewhat bitter and yeasty. Not as good as what I was thinking it was going to be. A good beer but I know better American Wheats.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - AUG 10, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2007 Hazy mango color with a small white head. Nose has a hint of lemon. Flavor is lightly sweet with citrus with some yeasty spice and a light citrus hop bite.

kumite56 (473) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2003
Blah blah blah. Nothing special here. Typical hefe in appearance. Cloudy, small white head. Light hopps, dry, medium bodied and crisp. In my opinio there aree much better hefe out there.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2004 Draught beer. Murky, completely opaque, and the color of peach sherbert. If you dropped your keys in one of these, they would completely disappear. Thin head. Aroma of lemon and yeast. Nice flavor of malt, grain, and citrus fruit with a non-hop bitter bite in the finish. Chewy mouthfeel. This beer is bold, ugly and perhaps even unsettling but decent nevertheless.

Bottle. Poured hazy golden-orange color with a small white head. Looks right for a hef. Aroma smelled more like a typical lager with a little lemon added to me. It seemed to be missing those luscious pineapple, banana and tropical fruit notes of the German brews of this style. Flavor was nice though, Sweet with a little tartness, wheat notes and mild floral hops with a fruity finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. All in all a good summer beer.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2004 Rerate: I must have samplead a bad batch when I first tried this. Gave it another try and liked it a little more. Original Rating: Looks just like a Mimosa - cloudy, orange and fizzy. Huge head. I took two sips and poured it out. This tastes like a mixture of Budweiser & orange juice.

Gold in color with a foam head.Tastes very heavy on the wheat but that is it.Nothing exciting here.Was hard to finish this one.

Tap. Murky yellow-golden, appears to slightly glow. Somewhat...eggish in flavor and aroma, which reminds me of the Alesmith ESB rating I had last year which I should probably delete. That's funny, the other one was also drank in a Southern California hotel bar. Okay, I'm using everything in my powers to filter out the eggishness...and I get a pretty standard dry-wheatiness hefe. It's mellow, with a clean finish, and as such it is about an average hefeweizen.
