Didn't expect a whole lot out of this beer, but I got even less than expected. Cloudy dark golden with off white head, slightly yeasy aroma, taste is moderately sour but very bland. Had a weistaphaner after having this and there was no comparison. This was closer to an american lager than a hefe to me. very disappointing. drinkbeer (283) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Another american wheat that just doesn't impress me. Damp wheat field aroma. Watery. Caramely malts. Slight acidic bite at the finish. Blah. auto (163) - California, USA - OCT 5, 2003

Upon pouring this beer into a glass, it resembles a hefeweizen, but maybe slightly darker. It has a nice head with very thin bubbles, almost like the beer was carbonated and then bottled with yeast. In fact, it did give quite a snap when I removed the cap. The head lasted very well and left some nice lace on the glass. The aroma is not very reminiscent of a wheat beer. It smeels pretty much like an American Lager with a hint of citrus. The taste is a tad on the sour side,and I concur with several others that there is a definite lemon sourness whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Cloudy, dark-straw with low to moderate carbonation. Sweet and strange aroma of butterscotch and yellow cake plus some spiciness. Light flavor of plums and peaches with considerable sweetness and some muskiness as well. Tart finish. Mouthfeel is like carbonated water. An odd beer. I'm beginning to wonder, are there any good wheat beers brewed in the United States?

Hazy golden colour with a thick (2 centimetre) dense white head. Smells of yeast, wheat, citrus fruit, coriander seed and that clean freshness (that is seemingly so indescribable) all come out nicely. Medium to Light-bodied; Medium flavours at first with the wheat and citrus being the major players but then falling off the palate completely. Odd mouthful, coats the mouth in a wierd fashion, not too pleasant. Aftertaste very subtle and mild, but with a bit of yeastiness is still noticeable as well as some residual sweetness. A decent beer...the aroma and appearance predicted this to be a bit better than it was, but not a bad beer for the style in any respect, but not better than average really. I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Total Wine in Chantilly, Virginia and sampled it on 10-September-2003. SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 18, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2003 Foamy head with a darker colour to it. Citrus and wheat in the nose with similar taste only more tart than I anticipated. Smoothe feel to it. overall, this was quite good. Aurelius (5436) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2003
A quality doughy aroma with fruit. Good label, a good slug of sediment. Mildly tart, nicely hopped, lots of fruit. Good mouth, but the tartness starts to cling. This was a good hefe. hopscotch (11175) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Murky, deep golden brew. “Blink and you miss it” head.
The nose is of caramel, banana and clove.
Yeasty, beefy and lightly fruity in flavor. Some honey in there too.
Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Lengthy, lightly sweet finish with hints of oak.
An odd hefe, this one. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2003
One of those that you start out drinking for the rating and hopes it gets better but it never does. Very musky and unbalanced, oily and a little too sweet. I would not try this one again.
