Bottle pours hazy golden with a medium sized foamy head. Minor lacing, minor carbonation. A very malty/yeasty aroma thats akin to mass produced beers, particularly budweiser. Taste isn't much better, light wheat/malt texture. Its as if someone crossed a semi-decent Hefe with a bud. No, this isnt working for me. Very thin, very little flavor on the finish. Sure would go back easy tho... Braudog (6804) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2003
Peach-colored beer with virtually no activity and little head. The vaguest of yeast aromas, but the flavor has nothing that would lead you to the Hefeweizen label. It's malty and the same vague yeast as the aroma, but nothing to distinguish it very much from your other standard Miller beers. blutt59 (6576) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2010

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2009 Other than looking like a good hefe there is little good about this. Very wheaty, some Bud-like funk. Untasty.
First had this beer in 2003 and scored it a 3.7 Musty orange-brown. Definetely the best wheat beer I’ve had. Doesn’t upset my stomach like other wheat beers. Would get again. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2008
Orange amber color. Hazy with a thin head. Aroma of wheat malt and honey. Some cereal like grain too. Crisp wheat with a little residual honey sweetness. Very carbonated. A hint of cardboard. Somewhat lager like finish. Perhaps a hint of lemon.

Thanks to riversideAK for the chance to taste this beer, you rock Alex! Cloudy orangy yellow. Gunk on bottom of 12 oz bottle provides a hypnotizing swirling pour. Aroma is just plain beery and lacks any of the bubblegum or banana smells so common with manyhefes. Creamy thin head that lasts. A little bitter initially on the mouth roof but that fades during thesession. Again, in taste, the flavor also lacks banana and bubblegum and is more laid back. Does have some gentle hefe flavors and is rather well behaved. Mild to medium bitterness does continueand I’m not sure if its due to some hops or malt. Finish leaves a mild medicine taste on the back of the throat. Tho not much in hefe character, it has enough personality to let you know this is more than a ubiquitous pale yellow beer. hayduke (5619) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 20, 2007
The Classic Dark was so good I had hopes for this. Cloudy yellow without much head. Nose was citurs. Mouthfeel a little thin. Flavors were malty with a touch of hops. Finish a litlte light. Not bad, but nothing unusual going on here. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 17, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2005 Very light haze, average head and lacing. In the nose there’s adjuncts, light wheat, barely any hops. They’re ripping off the hefeweizen name and the reinheinspebot law is spewing up distaste. Way downhill since the last time I had this. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 17, 2002
Medium gold color, slightly cloudy, small head. A light bodied hefeweizen. Mild malts and hops. Nice flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly sweet, some residual carbonation. oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Pours a hazy golden yellow. Aromas of bread/grains/ and some citrus. Had a taste of yeasty grains with some spice and citrus.
