As far as Hefe’s go, this is not one of my favorites. I prefer a more traditional banana/clove/wheat flavor which this one lacks.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2003 Cloudy banana body with medium white head. Aroma is sweet banana. Taste is banana, mildly sweet, light mint/herbal. Not bad, but not great either.

My favorite beer so far. Still have many to try. Love the thickness and the aftertaste. Needs to be cold while drinking. Not A very good bottle beer.

Not to bad for a hefeweizen. A touch of lemon flavor is already in it, so be careful when adding your own. I think this is one of my more favored beers from Widmer Brothers, especially around summer time.

It has a good flavor, but it is a little sweet for my tastes.

The cloudy appearance is due to the non-filtration of the Hefe, which seems to add more bite.

Never had this from a bottle.. On tap has a good head, cloudy, a sort of spicy citrus aroma. Easy drinking brew. Not a bad beer in its own right. This can not be compared to a Bavarian style hefe. This is some bastardization of the style. It seems to have defined its own. American Wheat, whatever the hell that is.

A very nice mid-tier hefeweizen! Try without the lemon! Lovely mouth feel - slightly creamy, and very aromatic, in that fresh yeasty smell of a way. If you like hefe’s you won’t be disappointed in the least.

I’m not a big hefe fan, but Widmer’s has yet to fail me. This is a real crisp brew, with a bit of a kick for an aftertaste. Not bad, but not great.
