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

This beer had surprisingly (and disappointingly) little flavor, most of it later on. I kept waiting for more taste, but it never came.

While quite beautiful in a glass, itís not the most flavorful beer in the world. Itís a good U.S.-style Hefe, but lacks the body/flavor of a nice German one. Quite refreshing on a hot day, though. A good summer beer that lacks enough complexity to make it enjoyable all year-round.

Not bad as a light, íwheat beer,í but a little under par for a íhefe.í Nonetheless, refreshing on a hot day. (Iíve only sampled the bottled version)

Bactine aroma predominates. Smells and tastes like a medicine chest. Iíve had this on draught in Portland, so I canít attribute these problems to staling -- itís uniformly bad, no matter where itís served.

Well, if you like American hefes, then I suppose this is the best one youíre likely to find. Of course, this beer is a pale shadow of a true German hefe-weizen. Iíve introduced so many American wheat drinkers to the real deal, and NONE of them have gone back to this comparatively weak, mild brew. Still, it can be refreshing on a hot day.

Stove Top (43) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2001
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.
