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 is one good brewery. I call them the Weybacher of the West Coast"

Pours a hazy amber from a tap. Wheaty aroma and flavor, none of the classic banana yeastiness I expect in a hefe. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slight notes of banana, subtle spiciness. Easy drinking enough, not really clovey which is good for me. Wife really likes this one I stole one of hers to rate.

We just just tasted one of the first if not the first Northwest Hefeweizen of the night. It was nice but safe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle while in Oregon in January. Appearance: finger white head, straw yellow, cloudy, light lacing. Aroma: hay, grass, wheat. Palate: average carbonation, thin texture. Taste: sweet wheat with light caramel into lemon notes. Overall, very drinkable, but not great outside of that.

jrodooo5 (1282) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 18, 2015
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!
