This is a great beer on tap, nice noble nose with a spicy bitterness (cascades and tettnang 32 ibuís). Lemon accentuates the overall flavor. In bottle this beer lacks some umph! (for a better word)...... Highly recommended on tap but in the bottle go with NorWester Hefeweizen if you desire a american hefe - widmer loses a lot of flavor in the bottle

Semi-typical American wheat beer. Weak carbonation and head for the style. Should be a little more yeast flavor apparent. Gets sweeter in the middle and finishes quite dry. Iíve had worse but if yout looking for something better, it wont take you long to find it.

This was the first Hefeweizen I ever had and I loved it until I had a couple high quality German Hefeweizens. I still find this to be refreshing, but it lacks the character and complexity I appreciate in a Hefe.

Good beer. My friend had it at a gathering with a huge wedge of lemon in it, gave it a really good taste, an enjoyable brew. My first Hefeweizen, so I canít compare to any others.

Pretty good but nothing special. Where it really lost points in my rating was in the aroma category, the lemon wedge drowned out the beer aroma. After next time I try it Iíll probably be updating my rating.

I wonder if I need to try this again after reading the other reviews. In my view this is a decent hefe, but I must admit that hefe is one of my least favorite styles now. (It used to be my favorite.) This beer was cloudy and yellow-gold, just like it should be. This hefe wasnít even in the same league as the German hefeís Iíve tried. And the local micro breweries all put out much better versions. This was just pretty non descript....no real zing to it. I expect a little sourness from a heffe...or maybe some clove flavor or nose. But this didnít have anything like that. Just an average, drinkable beer.

An excellent Hefe! One thing that struck me about this one was that the malt was more apparent than in other Hefeís Iíve tried. A must try if you can get it where you live.
