Although it takes its name from a traditional German style, Widmer Hefeweizen lacks the clovey tang of the original style. Itís given some credit for popularizing the American wheat beer style--though it wasnít the first. In Oregon, Hefeweizen has had a long history: back in the mid-80s, it was the first íití 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.
