3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a weizen glass. The label has a bottled on date but no abv%.
Appearance: The body has a cloudy orange/yellow body with fine yeast sediment hanging in suspension. On top sits a modest one inch tall collar of creamy white foam. This head quickly settles down to thin film layer that make some slick glass lacing.
Smell: I get a light lemon like citrus and wheat bready character with some mild clove and a very slight bubble gum and banana.
Taste/Palate: It starts with a light and sweet wheat base. From there it adds some citrusy orange and lemon character as well as some very slight bubble gum and banana. (The classic Hefeweizen bubble gum/banana notes are much thinner than I would like to see.) It then finishes with some dry spice and a nice balance of leafy hop bitterness. The palate is fairly crisp and very quaffable.
Notes: As a Hefeweizen it is average but as an American Wheat Ale it is very well made.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
The fact that they call this a hefeweizen is a joke.Slightly hazy yellow pour with a white head. Faint aromas of wheat. Super watery flavor. Weak!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The key to rating this beer is on the label. It says American Hefeweizen. This is not a german hefe and should not be treated like one. It will be lighter in texture and drier. There may even be a hint of bitterness to it. These are all there. Having said that, it could still be more. The aroma is more like a wheat ale. It is a bit muted with a floral touch. The body is light and the mouthfeel is lively. The finish again is dry with a touch of hop bitterness. A good example of an Americanized hefeweizen. Refreshing.
