I am a heffeweizen lover, and when I poured this particular brand my mouth was watering to take a swig. It was a pleasent color and had a good head, but when it comes to taste, it was just like the beach...NEAR WATER!
With almost no distinct flavor this was a huge dissapointment in my book. Do yourself a favor, pass this one by. wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2004
12 oz bottle, weizen glass. Cereal and bread malt (M); herb/earthy hops (L); earthy yeast (L); prune and peach aromas. Cloudy peach body with a thin, white, foamy head. Lightly sweet, moderately acidic flavor becomes a moderately acidic, lightly bitter finish. Medium-light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Sticky, coating aftertaste. The bottom line is: most definitely not a hefeweizen and lacks many of the nuances of a quality American Wheat also. TAR (2802) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - AUG 12, 2004
Dingy, heavily-yeasted peach. Large round bubbles border an off-white rocky head. Bland, airy aroma coupled with flint, cookie, and clover honey. Slight phenolic esters and earthy, mushy malts. Gentle seltzery spritz paired with a thick body. Moderately tangy flavors are capped with immediate graham and sweetish malts. Hints of hay flirt with the soured orange acidity. Zero clove or banana esters to be found and very few phenols to back the leafy hops and perfume. Soft peppery flashes ease their way into the mix alongside a muted hop presence and nutty/husky malt. Continually sweet, due to the mushy, light toasted malts and lack of full-attenuation. Unfocused finish of pumpkin stem, doughy yeast, and waning hops. Yikes. It does have a decent level of spritz, but this is too thick, malty, and sloppily assembled. Calling this a Hefe is blasphemous.

Thanks to Lord Gorlock for this trade bonus!!
This is picture perfect out of the bottle! Big head, just so hazy yellow color. The aroma is a little muted but has some spicy banana notes to it.
The flavor is watered down however, and is very lacking in mouthfeel and palate as well. Cold and refreshing yes, but there isn’t much here other than that. Suttree (6541) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Dirty, Cloudy gold. no head. First sip is not particularly "wheaty" - more bitterness than I would expect. Nicely effervescent palate. Some toasty malt flavors, then some understated lemon and even some apple. Hoppy finish. Thanks to Drunkasaskunk for this one!

Decent appearing brew, pours cloudy with a nice sized egg white head. Aroma is very faintly reminscent of a good hefe. A twinge of banana and clove and some dust too. Flavor has some wheat, but definetely has some off elements to it. Pass on this one. Terminus (3740) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 26, 2004
bottle-given to me from DrunkAsASkunk-pours a modest hazy orange hue with small smooth white head. aroma is not good at all-orange crush and a public pool cholorine smell going. slight metalic notes also. thin, weak ornange and slight banana flavors. not good, but thanks Shawn DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2004
First of all, I dont know how in the hell this beer wound up in my neck of the woods, but the beer label is so damn ghetto that I HAD to buy the six pack. It pours a very faint and cloudy yellow color with varying hints of yellows. The head is soapy and dissipates almost immediately. Heavy carbonation can easily be seen throughout this beer. The aroma was pretty pleasant at first, but quickly wavered into nothingness. Some malt and banana in the nose, but other than that, very little. The taste begins pleasantly...very light and sweet...some wheat and malt, with hints of fruits...grapefruit and orange mainly. Then this cardboard malt and sickeningly sweet wheat flavor takes over the palate and destroys any hope of this beer ever becoming good. The finish is dry and raw...like licking the seal of an envelope! Not the most pleasant beer by any means. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 21, 2003
Light golden, slightly hazy; frothy and white, thick head. Rather carbonated with a tingly, weak texture. Soft malts: grainy, bready and on the light side. Hops were lightly spicy, with just a slight bitterness. Not really hefeweizen-ish (as it says on the label), more like a bland American wheat.

Wow, this seems familiar. I think I had it when it was called Elk Rock Amber. A sickly taste of degraded wheat. No good aroma. Pretty weak stuff.
