UPDATED: NOV 4, 2004 Nice try, but no cigar. Although it looks great it seemed a little watery and too hoppy. Bitter finish and the addition of a little lemon seemed to unbalance it even more. I must say though that after sitting in the glass for a few minutes and warming up, it is getting better. Still too hoppy though. RunawayUD (30) - USA - DEC 2, 2001
Not a bad wheat, but not the kind of brew you can drink too much of. K-V-F-L (292) - LaVista, Nebraska, USA - OCT 18, 2001
Enjoyable enough, but not really a hefe or even much of an attempt at one; main ingredients are obviously adjuncts. BeerNazi (169) - winnetka, California, USA - SEP 20, 2001
it was ok,not that great. TAR (2742) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - SEP 13, 2001
First off, this is a Wheat ale, not a Hefe weizen. I like the nice malt taste after the sip. Pleasantly surprised for a beer that is easily found fresh in supermarkets even.

I was dissapointed with this beer. Most of the hefe weizens i have had are much better tasting than this weak effort. Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - AUG 23, 2001
While I applaud the effort, the product deserves no such merits. It’s nice to see one of the big three branching out to other styles, however they definitely need more practice. Cloudy, golden brown, absent the customary hefeweizen aroma, instead exhibiting a touch of hops. This is a mere shadow of a true german wheat, tasting primarily of water with some hops thrown in for good measure. Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2001
While the hops are a tad too much for the style, obscuring any of the typical hefeweizen spicy/fruity notes, it’s still a pretty decent brew, and at the price is a mainstay at my barbecues. A great deal closer to the style on the label than their so-called ’Amber Bock.’ fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - AUG 11, 2001
Surprisingly not bad for a macrobrewer’s beer. Looked like a very nice hefe, great frothy head. Nice fruity nose and a decent taste. Slightly sour, but overall not bad. mike mcneil (660) - St Augustine, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2001
Straw colored cloudy appearance typical of a hefe. Slightly sour wheat malt nose, but not offensive. Initially sweet on the palate, but then dries out a bit with an unusually up front hop presence in the finish for this style. Clean and refreshing but unremarkable. This is an American Wheat beer, not a Bavarian. No clove or banana esters to be found.
