From old tasting notes. Cloudy, honey gold color. Thick, creamy white head. Yeasty, wheat malt aroma. Sharp, yeasty malt flavor hints at grapefruit. Bitter citrus finish. bhensonb (15974) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 16, 2014

This bottled brew poured a small sized head of frothy large sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was other and dark yellow orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild bready aroma with a wheat note . Its mouth feel is initially tingly with a lingering tingly palate and a smooth aftertaste. Its flavor contained malt wheat bready notes. DarkElf (3067) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 8, 2005
(12 oz bottle: Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) Not a lot of wheat flavor, more just a generic, cheap micro-wheat. Light sweetness, minimal hops. Seems to be a bit past its prime though, as I’m picking up a bit of breadiness, plus some cardboard in the finish. And actually, the nose is sweet and bready as well. Light-to-medium in body. The color is a muddy golden and kind of sickly looking. The small, fizzy, whitish head dissipated rapidly down to a small ring. Not very good.

Not a great hefeweizen, Far too carbonated, produces a biting acid on the tongue, I don’t like that aspect, the aroma is a little weak as well. On a positive note, it does taste pretty decent, although bland. I don’t think I would get this one again. steview (1088) - Petaluma, California, USA - APR 1, 2005
english pint / sweet wheaty aroma. fizzy, cola sounding poor with airy white head. hazy yellow straw body. citrus, slightly doughy, sweet wheat. JPDIPSO (6298) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Hazy/murky dull golden color with a smaller off white head. Sweet wheat and floral hops aromas. Grape-nuts and light hops flavors. Hints of citrus. Another boring american wheat. hotstuff (5279) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 14, 2005
Bottle. Poured a small fizzy white head that fully diminished, sparse lacing, fine-small sized bubbles, carbonated, hazy, and a yellow hue. The aroma was malty and sweet. The flavor was sweet and malty. None of the typical aromas and flavors for this beer style. Tingly palate. Light-medium body. 3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2005
12oz bottle. Slightly murky medium yellow color, some yeast particles visibly floating. Light sweet grainy lemon and wheat flavor, a little bit like plastic, or perhaps the bottle that I’m tasting. Drinkable, refreshing and sweet, but not the ideal hefe. Light corn aroma turns my nose away, however.
