12 oz. bottle.
My complaint with Hefeweizens is that in my experience, this is the one style of beer were there is so little variation and creativity. I will not say" they all taste alike",,,,,,,but...Of the last eight Hefeweizens that I have had..I could probably not tell one from another!
This beer is different. It is distinct.
It is almost like a Hefeweizen - Lite Beer, and I think that it is good.
I found the aroma rather weak, but this is one beautiful beer sitting in the glass and coming at you as it bubbles up by it’s carbonation.
I found it just slightly a bit watery.

Widmer Bros knows how to brewing a hefeweizen. Lots of good malty dough and yeast flavor balanced out with some hops.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz sampled from BH as Hefe (arrived fresh bottled JUL2015, ach those trade routes). - Bref: does for Hefe what Blue Moon did for Wit. A wheat ale by any other name still wouldn’t be a Weizen. Cascades saving the show over white bready wheat, spent lemon drops, dusty fruitloop-loco where the actual Hefe won’t go. Very thin bodied, stone fruit peel wheat radler. Hm. File under: US Craft does not do mature German styles any justice - update that NW Widmer-SW Kirchzarten connection. Hard to taste where this once was a pioneer beer of the movement.

Hazy pale gold beer, small sparce white head.
Mild aroma - grainy cereal malts, touch of cooked apple & apricot fruit esters(?).
Medium bodied, carbonation somewhat subdued for style.
Grainy wheaty malts on the body, touch of ripe pear & apricot fruits, slight spiciness, subdued bitterness to finish.
Daresay it’s a bit past its best.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Big white head doesn’t last. Hazy opaque pale yellow body. Fruity
mealy dusty aroma. Dryish mealy dusty taste with fruity notes.
Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish mealy dusty aftertaste with
faint fruity notes. Well. American wheat ale is usually not great, but
this was below the already dismal average. Unfresh. (0.355l bottle,

12-ounce bottles in a pint glass. Typical great aroma and large head found in wheat beers, unfortunately less flavor than some others as well. Not bad for the price; enjoyable, just not as good as some of Widmer’s other offerings.
