The standard by which all other wheat beers are judged. Our deliciously deranged American-Style Hefeweizen is an award winning take on this Bavarian classic. This refreshingly unfiltered wheat ale delivers a distinctively smooth flavor worth sharing with friends.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2009 Cloudy appearance. Well balanced and smooth tasting. Nice, slight hoppy bite. Excellent with or without a lemon. Particularly shines as a refreshing summer draft on a hot day though a fine beer any time of the year. Probably my favorite Hefe. Rerate--just had this at the brewery for the first time and raises .1. I still feel this may be one of the most underappreciated beers on this site. For me, this is the epitome of the American wheat. Flawless apeearance--taupe on top and thinning in color down the glass. Beautiful wheat aroma and full wheat taste. Simply sublime. 5/22/09 - Rerated now as Pyramid Haywire Hefeweizen. Wheaty body, full of grassiness in aroma and flavor. Not quite as good as I remember it, yet still a stalwart summer time refreshment.

This is a good ’burger beer’. I skipped the lemon probably because that’s how Corona tries to disguise the fact that there is no flavor. That was almost the case here, but this was a refreshing, glossy-smooth drink that tasted good ice-cold.

Too carbonated for my taste - left a slight stinging sensation on my tounge. The color resembles, well...it looks like pee - if you had a urinary tract infection. I’m still undecided if that is bad or not.

Bottled or draft, it’s the only hefe I like WITH lemon, but I don’t know if that’s good or bad. Very smooth, tiny amount of bitterness, nice golden color. Easy to drink, goes well with food. Most people I know don’t like this beer, but I find it to be one of the most refreshing of all. It’s just a little thin on the palate, especially with lime, to be compared favorably to the best Hefes.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2005 ReRate-well, it has been over 3 years since i had this beer, so i thought i would re-rate it. yeasty metalic slight banana aroma. grainy malt flavors that were fizzy and faint. watery palate that did nothing to excentuate this beer. faint banana finish with notes of lemon, but mostly grain husks. a very boring wheat (yea, this is no german hefe!)

Quite good without having many true wheat qualities. This gets points because one night in Seattle I was exausted and asked for a ’flavourful american beer’. I got this and felt recouperated.
