Although it takes its name from a traditional German style, Widmer Hefeweizen lacks the clovey tang of the original style. It’s given some credit for popularizing the American wheat beer style--though it wasn’t the first. In Oregon, Hefeweizen has had a long history: back in the mid-80s, it was the first ’it’ beer, a yuppie signifier akin to a glass of merlot in the 90s or Shiraz now. It also sent brewers down a false road, as they all rushed to brew gentle wheaty ales to appeal to a larger audience. Still, a Widmer Hef on a hot day is a pleasant thing. Fresh and wheaty, but crisp and dry. Forget the citrus though.

Pours a hazy yellow with a small head and a citrus aroma. Refreshing taste, but plain overall.

This beer pours an opaque dark golden color with a large white head that fades somewhat quickly. The aroma is purely wheat and yeast, and the taste is slightly sour and a touch sweet. The palate fuses a thick texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a fairly abrupt finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

johnnyoski (434) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle. Hazy golden color with a very thin white head. Wheat and grassy aroma. Flavor is the same, heavy emphasis on the wheat. Refreshing and drinkable but lacking in flavor. Just a run of the mill American hefe.

Draught at BurgerMeister. Hazy yellow color, white head. Bittersweet taste with citrus, wheat, a bit of banana and grass. Bitter finish with citrus, wheat and grass. Decent hefeweizen.

Transfer from BA review on 10-13-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a hazy golden orange color with almost no head. With almost no head upon pouring there was almost no lacing. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of wheat with some lighter notes of orange and yeast. Mixed with these is a slightly bready smell. Overall the aroma is rather light. Taste – The taste starts out with some malt, yeast and a wheat flavor. These flavors create a base for eh beer and remain relatively consistent throughout the taste. While initially not present, some citrus of orange and lemon come to the tongue in the middle of the taste. In the end a lighter orange taste comes to the tongue and sweetens it a bit. With this orange flavor a yeasty, wheat orange flavor are left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body for the beer is on the average side in terms of creaminess and it has a carbonation level that is just slightly above normal. Good for the flavors and style, but nothing all that exceptional. Overall – It was an alright hefeweizen, but really noting to go out of your way for. Just OK.

The low scores for this beer are unjust. This is the perfect beer. Great in all year round, hot and cold.. A standard of microbrews . Drink unresponibly !

Bamsen78 (3109) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy orange amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of hops and yeast, with some fruity touches to it. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with herbal notes and touches of malt and fruit. Estery notes, especially in the rather rough aftertaste. Drinkable, rather well-balanced but nothing special.
