I must agree with some of the other comments regarding appearance. Not all together a bad looking beer. Taste is what you would expect though for a product from this company.
Aroma and flavor is medium wheat, spices and a hint of bananas. It was very drinkable and smooth but it was not anywhere close to being a hefeweizen. edgallow (4211) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Its been a while since I had this. Based of some previous notes I had It poured cloudy amber with a white head. Aroma of wheat and spices. Taste of yeast, grain and spice seymour (2045) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 31, 2011
My tasting notes from 2001. Bottle from Michelob Holiday Mix-pack. Poured a mostly clear golden color with thin head which dissipated quickly, no lace. Not cloudy as a hefeweizen should be. Slight yeast aromas but nowhere near enough pepper, clove and banana. I can taste mild malt and some muted wheat, but the impression is pretty similar to every other over-carbonated, over-processed, metallic-tasting Anheuser Busch brew. Not true-to-style. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 18, 2010
Hefeweizen Wheat Ale--1998 12 oz. Bottle. 5.00% ABV. (2.25 / 5.0) Light bodied and over carbonated at first. Mildly flavorful with Wheat bouquet. savatar (10) - USA - MAR 15, 2009
The only reason to drink a beer of this class is... actually there is no reason to drink this beer. I am tired of people saying things like "I like the price on the shelf in times like these". If you cant find a better beer for only one dollar more in any local store/bar, the problem is no longer the quality of this beer... its YOU.

i think i got a bad bottle on this one. tasted so bitter that i was craving saltwater. the carbonation was like putting 5 mentos in my mouth with a swig of 7 up. happy retirement. subcell (96) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2008
All I can say is that this was one of the worst hefeweizen’s I have ever had. Thank you AB for retiring this worthless brew. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Kudos for this effort...not a grea beer by any means, but at least they try. Just not enough body or full flavor to consider this a good brew. The really only time I have been in disagreement with Michael Jackson. Ron (3962) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2008
I was reviewing old family video’s recently when I saw that I had gotten a Mic variety pack for Christmas ’01’ with this beer in it. I remember enjoying this one. I added a lemon to it and it did help. Hoser (387) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 7, 2007
I thought this was a decent kristall hefe with allot of the usual characters in a German wheat beer. Page 314 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide and 165 of his Classic Brews to go.
