From Aug 2006
Poured from 12oz bottle a cloudy light gold with a smallish head of foam that quickly shrunk leaving a broken, fine layer.
The smell is quite light but I note some citrus and wheat.
The taste is well...where *is* the taste? There's a bit of wheat present and an ever so slight hint of, umm...I'm reaching here....citrus? Man, this is maybe the blandest brew my palate has ever encountered in my years of drinking micros. I mean, it's not offensive, it just doesn't have any character that you can reflect upon after you swallow it. Wow. That being said, it's probably a big seller in the markets that carry it. ;^)

Pours a hazy golden yellow color. Aromas of bread/lemon/ and some fruit. Had a taste of yeasty bread with some fruit. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Decent and would be really easy to drink in the summertime. Loses some of its lacquer in the middle of an Oregon winter but nice for a change. Has all the textbook flavors, a little too lemony with some really nice banana bread maltiness and that is rounded out by a herbal clove bite in the finish. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a cloudy golden body with a moderate quickly diminishing white head. Aroma of lemon and mild hops. Light citrus flavor with a hint of banana and cloves. apost8n8 (123) - USA - MAY 29, 2005
Pored pretty clear for a hef, kinda a light brown, head bubbled up and flew away super fast. Watery, soapy, acidic, not a good hef. crap I have 5 more.

Really a non-impressive Heffe (even for Heffe’s). Poured well, but nothing special. Nose was very weak with hints of hops, citrus, and clover. Attack watery. Slight citrus finish. Was easy on the palate though. kbjames (244) - Utah, USA - SEP 2, 2004
I was not very impressed with is heffe beer. Almost no flavor to speak of, no color, just really nothing going on with this. I won’t be buying this again. Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2004
Hazy straw colors, thin creamy head with sparse lacing. Light citrus, some clove and banana followed by hops. Yeasty, wheat, citrus hops and light malts. Light bodied, slight bitter finish. BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Hazy blond color with light fizzy head. The aroma is lightly malty with wheat & a touch of citrus. The flavor is musty & tangy with wheat & some dusty hops. Finishes bland & lightly tangy, bland american wheat. When I was trying these Metolius beers, I had no idea who they were made by but they really reminded me of the Fire Station 5 stuff, also a PBC brewed beer for a specific grocerty store chain.

Ok this beer is brewed by MacTs for the Albertson grocery chain.
Bought a 12 oz brown bottle single.
Has a nice river scene with a fisdhing fly on the label.
MM this beer is very murky even for a hefe..murky orange..small pure white head that dissapears fast..no lacing..hope this is not off.
well doesnt smell off..doesnt smell of much at all to be honest.
Taste is pretty weak..although the wheat sourness is discernable..small malts too.
It feels oily on the tongue due to the lack of carbonation.
Its not that bad..but I would not buy it again..maybe it was off..I dont really know.
