I’m not a big fan of Hefeweizen, but the Widmer Brother’s NW type, Cascade Hop impregnated golden wheat beer is an enjoyable drink for all occasions. If you are used to urin beers such as Coors and Bud, this beer serves as a great stepping stone into the world of real beers.

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.

I didn’t hate this one. Probably should be rated higher than 34. Could use a stronger wheat character, but was refreshing. On par with most mass produced beers out there, but not craft beer quality.

This is definitely a summer beer to quench your thirst. If you’re dehydrated ... and there is no water ... and you are literally dying.

Tonkun (916) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Tap. Hazy yellow orange pour with minimal head. Wheat, grain, delicate and soft. Some spice and citrus. Body and carbonation are medium. Short and watery and wheat finish. Not bad

Hazy golden color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of wheat, some clove, & spice; Flavor of wheat, some yeast, grain, light bananas, and citrus; Crisp finish; Overall, a little too harsh and metallic.

"Hazy, dark gold color and basically no head. Very delicate, sweet aroma of hops and wheat malts. Taste is also sweet and delicate; mostly wheat, hay, grains. Medium body, velvet texture, and almost flat carbonation. Like the rest of the beer the finish is soft and somewhat watered down." Yes... I agree 100%... except I really enjoyed this since I don’t normal care for Hefe/Wheat Ale.

0.33 bottle. Hazy, dark gold color and basically no head. Very delicate, sweet aroma of hops and wheat malts. Taste is also sweet and delicate; mostly wheat, hay, grains. Medium body, velvet texture, and almost flat carbonation. Like the rest of the beer the finish is soft and somewhat watered down. Overall it’s an average brew.

Aromas of banana, clove, hay. Hazy brownish yellow with a fully lasting white head. Fruity, simple flavors. Medium-full bodied, smooth.

"nice flavor and malty backbone to this one, but not enough to really seperate it. slightly better than average. enjoyable, but not worth going out of your way for. better option than Pyramid."

A decent wheat ale but misleading to label it "Hefe". Decent wheat notes but no banana or clove.
