COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Its a crime to even call this a hefeweizen, and a joke to categorize it as an ’American Weizen’.There is no such thing, just as American Champiagn is called sparkling wine, this should be renamed something else. Aside from the cloudy appearence it is nothing like a true Hefeweizen. I put it to the test in a bar in Seattle with a blind fold and three German hefeweizen. If there are any american hefewewizen that come remotely close Id love to hear about it. This , unfortunately is a fraud and a hoax.

Thinish wheat beer - OK, but

adamlau (76) - California, USA - DEC 16, 2001
Medium carbonation with a natural cloudy appearance. Mid carries characteristic yeast-wheat flavors. Somewhat of a sharp finish. Slice of lemon improves the citrus aspects, as well as the finish of this brew.

40oz (181) - Newport Beach, California, USA - OCT 29, 2001
Beautiful bright color and good head, not spicy like many German hefes but quite yeasty and fruity. Light mouthfeel but very refreshing on a warm day.

kingstratego (82) - Grävenwiesbach, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2001
Despite the suspicious lemon on the label and the statement, that they learned the recipe in Dusseldorf (where no Hefeweizen is brewed) a quite ok beer. Far from German but ok.

Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - AUG 23, 2001
Cloudy, light brown, with an ale-like, bready aroma. Not much going on here other than the tangy yeast flavor and bitter finish that do not quite qualify this as a good representation of the style.

fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - AUG 23, 2001
As far as hefes go this one is average. Cloudy yeallow to orange color with a lacey head. Sweet, yeasty aroma, and a pretty light body. Very smooth, but overall, only average.

fraternie (819) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2001
Incredibly smooth and refreshing but completely lacking in flavor. Very light body, nice head.
