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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
