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

Bottle. Cloudy yellow, one inch tall airy head. Low retention. The aroma is floral with a notes of honey/nectar & white bread. Light body. Thin to oily palate. The fruity flavour presents melon, honey, white bread, spicy & citric hop. Light bitterness. Pretty decent.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2016 Ugjennomsiktig gul med lavt skum. Aroma av malt, gjær og noe humle. Smaken er sitrus, malt og noe gjær. Tynn konsistens.

Widmer Bros knows how to brewing a hefeweizen. Lots of good malty dough and yeast flavor balanced out with some hops.

DAA; Bottle 355 ml, from Vinmonopolet. Pours moderate, cloudy gold with a frothy, fading, still lacing white head. Nose is moderate, malt, wheat, yeast, grass, citrus, light perfume and spice. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a somewhat lasting orange finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat to soft.

bartlebier (3303) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2016
12oz sampled from BH as Hefe (arrived fresh bottled JUL2015, ach those trade routes). - Bref: does for Hefe what Blue Moon did for Wit. A wheat ale by any other name still wouldn’t be a Weizen. Cascades saving the show over white bready wheat, spent lemon drops, dusty fruitloop-loco where the actual Hefe won’t go. Very thin bodied, stone fruit peel wheat radler. Hm. File under: US Craft does not do mature German styles any justice - update that NW Widmer-SW Kirchzarten connection. Hard to taste where this once was a pioneer beer of the movement.

Muggus69 (2022) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2016
330mL bottle from Booze Bud. BB?AUG1815 Hazy pale gold beer, small sparce white head. Mild aroma - grainy cereal malts, touch of cooked apple & apricot fruit esters(?). Medium bodied, carbonation somewhat subdued for style. Grainy wheaty malts on the body, touch of ripe pear & apricot fruits, slight spiciness, subdued bitterness to finish. Daresay it’s a bit past its best.

Look; hazy golden body, off white head. Aroma; bread, lemon, spices, marcipan, grass. Taste; bread, hops, grainy lemon, bready malts. Finishes in bread and hops. Palate; good body, dry sides, normal carbonation. Overall; tasty, banana free. 33cl btl.

larsga (7220) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 19, 2016
Big white head doesn’t last. Hazy opaque pale yellow body. Fruity mealy dusty aroma. Dryish mealy dusty taste with fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish mealy dusty aftertaste with faint fruity notes. Well. American wheat ale is usually not great, but this was below the already dismal average. Unfresh. (0.355l bottle, from wine monopoly, Lillehammer.)
