I agree with others this is way light and filtered. Wheaty and easy to drink, no real complexities, more like a Wheat ale, but really has no characteristics of a traditional style.

german hef? this is so clear, i would figure it a kristal. close enough. super clear light yellow/gold. minimal head, soft aromas of lemon and wheat, i cannot find anything else there. dusty and soft, very easy drinking, though fairly simple and one dimensional. certainly not a bad beer or unflavorful one, just kinda plain.

6/28/08 On draught at the Brewpub. Aroma is too sweet, with no classic German phenolics coming through. Appearance is clear yellow with a moderate maintained white head. Flavor is simple wheat malt, with classic light sourness and sweetness and nearly no bittering. Mouthfeel is spritzy and tangy with medium/light body. Overall, refreshing, but the complexity is way, way too low for a German hef.

after4ever (7654) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Cloudy lemony yellow with light gray head and lace. Steady rising carb even in a very narrow tasting glass. Nice sweet banana nose. Mild, somewhat fizzy body, but very pleasantly drinkable. Wheat sourness really takes the stage on the mid-palate and the beer showcases it perfectly. Interesting mild spicy clove toward the end. Clean, slightly yeasty finish.

on tap-pours a thin retaining white head that laces and hazy straw color. Aroma is wheat, citrus, then funky wheat. Taste is wheat, citrus, secondary grassy/spice hops. OK effervescence. Well, Im guessing some changes have happened here, as there wasnt one standout on my [8]quaffs, and the previous ratings would leave one with a different expectation.

12oz bottle-A cloudy gold with a thich head and an aroma of banana, wheat, and a little coriander. Taste of the same but a little mellow and light for this style.

8/18/2007: LaConner Wheat was server with a wege of lemon that I did not use. The is hazy to cloudy and very pale yellow in color with a thin white head. It definitely appears to be unfiltered. The aroma is citrusy with a slight bit of acidity to it. The flavor is light with lemon/citrus, toasted malt, and a light and mild hoppiness in the finish. The beer is medium-light in body and is smooth and mellow with fine carbonation bubbles. Overall this beer was drinkable but nothing too terribly exciting...

Draught (5% ABV) at LaConner Brewing Company in LaConner, Washington. Rating #7 for this beer...

Not as good as many of the other offerings from laconner. Thin and little wheat with a slight citrus note. Just lacks a lot of the flavour you would expect for a hefe.

Had this on tap at the LaConnor pub. Specifically requested this without a lemon. Came with a lemon. "Thats the way we server it", said the waitress. Whatever! Absolutely no head. Nice cloudy yellow color in the appropriate type glass. At least this one wasnt frosted (see my review of the IPA). Completely flat on the palate, but with a decent taste for the style. I didnt finish it.

On tap at the brewery

Musty, yoghurty aroma. Very pale, hazy, soft body. Lightly phenolic, creamy. Lacks spice. Its sweet, but in an underhopped way, not in a big malt way. The lack of esters and spice is pretty surprising, given the style, and it leaves the beer with nothing to offer.
