UPDATED: SEP 15, 2011 Bottle. It poured a hazy medium yellow with an amber hue and had a small (less than 1 finger) white frothy head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing. The aroma was of light grain malts, a grassy hop and a nice strong earthy yeast with a hint of citrus and cloves. It tasted bitter-sweet in the beginning with a nice citrus note. It then proceeded to have a light hoppy finish with a dose of spice at the end. The flavor stayed with you for an average amount of time leaving almost no taste of the brew a few minutes after the swallow. Mouthfeel was creamy yet watery in texture and medium in body with a lively carbonation. Overall a decent wheat beer and would be great as a session beer. Itís a light refreshing brew and nice served with a slice of lemon. But nothing really stands out to make this beer anything overly special.

No real clove or banana in the aroma. Nice white head and a nice layer of yeast to pour into the beer. Overall the only real standout flavor is a slight lemony flavor which is probably hop derived. I was expecting this beer to be more "German" but it is nonetheless very clean and refreshing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From specialty bottle, designed and bottled as release number 3 of Widmerís 30 Beers for 30 Years. Rating small anniversary batch. Slightly cloudy, very effervescent golden color. Aroma is clove, banana, lemon, and wheat. Taste is banana, clove, wheat, bubblegum, and bread. Fizzy mouthfeel, with a good amount of fruit and wheat in the finish.

Ticking this one for an Untappd badge... Surprised I have not reviewed it before... Pours an orange haze with a long lasting white head. Nose is standard "wheat" with a little bit of something that I associate with lemon. Flavor is the same... drinkable and light tasting, goes down pretty smoothly. Probably the prototype for most American Wheats... but I like mine generally with a lot more hop character.

Pours a cloudy straw golden color with white head. Cloves, bananas, and some raw wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more wheat.

Decent beer, but nothing special. Slightly better than domestic beers in the US. Not my first choice to drink, but also not my last.

A middle of the road american hefe. Not much in the way of spicyness, but has some light lemon.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2014
12 oz. bottle packaged on 11/14/13 poured into weizen glass. Hazy pale golden color with a decent-sized fizzy white head. Aromas of wheat, citrus, coriander and pepper. Flavor follows suit, with a clean finish and refreshing mouthfeel. This lacks the phenol character of a Germen hefeweizen, itís certainly pleasant enough.
