ordybill (537) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a wheat and fruit smell, nothing spectacular Appearance- Pours a murky gold with a small white head. Taste- Has more of a malt flavor than wheat mixed with some fruit, it is ok. Palate- A light to medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Overall- An average Hefeweizen.

odinstyr (583) - Howell, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Pours a cloudy gold with a small white head. Smells of clove and banana. Taste is sweet lightly bitter and lightly spiced. A bit of floral hops with a smooth biscuit malt and wheat spice. Simple and light.

Savage_Night (41) - California, USA - APR 13, 2015
Wheat, yeast, banana aroma. Flavors of wheat, banana, slight bread, light tartness on and slight dry feel. It’s not but but also not great. You could use this as your starting point and just move forward to better hefeweizens. The next one being better than the last.

ttoadee (837) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Cloudy yellow pour, decent head. Nose is yeast and wheat. Slightly sweet.. Middle is bready, hint of citrus. Finish is dry and still a little bready. I will admit that I like the German hefe versions better.

martin00sr (1429) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2015
Hazy orange, small unstable, airy white head. Caramely aroma with fruity hop notes. Flavour has citric bitterness, light caramel. Mouthfeel is light, rather watery. Dry and bitter finish. Too American, not much of a Hefe. Not very interesting.

Augdraught1981 (171) - Harlem, Georgia, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Very cloudy, light orange pour with suspended sediment. My first "American" Hefeweizen and besides the appearance, doesn’t at all resemble the German hefeweizens I’m familiar with. The fruit & spicy aromas & flavors are very light and barely there at all. The flavor is more of a bitter bland with some lemon and an unusual, I don’t know what. Pretty boring but drinkable & thirst quenching. My bottle indicates September 2014, which I’m not sure if that means best by date or brew date. I’m thinking this is past its prime and this is what I get for drinking this beer out of season.

rondphoto (2654) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 13, 2015
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Hazy medium orange amber with a good 1/2" off-white head, streaks of lace. Taste is wheat and malt that moves toward mild hops early. Hops carry through a short finish. More of a light ale than a Hefe, but it is thirst-quenching and easy drinking.

A good standard to judge other beers in the class. I recall it being better when there was less competition in the segment. Someone, some beer has to fall into the average.
