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.

We just just tasted one of the first if not the first Northwest Hefeweizen of the night. It was nice but safe.

Pours a murky gold w/ a thin white head & minimal lacing. The aroma is primarily Orange. The taste is fruity up front - mainly orange followed by a bit of strange bitterness. It’s a little harsh on the palate & overall not very good!
