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.

Tap Pour at Scarpa’s 2 in ABQ, NM. Served in a pint glass with the traditional lemon slice garnish. Not much head, but the cloudy orange-amber body was a sight for sore eyes. Aroma dominated by the citrus aspect, but a little wheat comes through. No traditional banana here! Flavors also dominated by the lemon/citrus, but more of the wheat/bread, and some spices come out. I do miss the banana evident in other Weizens. Very tasty for an American Hefeweizen... but these boys still have something to shoot for. Cheers!

Sample at a beer tasting. Aroma was weak, but hinted of citrus which leaned more toward lemon. Slightly metallic flavor and plenty of citrus that didn’t combine well with the wheat malt. Nice and cloudy.

Wheity hops in aroma and a slight hops with carbonation for the taste. Not bad, but not a great beer either.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2008 this pint poured by ayn rand loving bartender - john’s - steep recommendation. pyramid hefe pours with a riverbed sediment heavy yellowish-orange hue. visually swirling citrus notes darken as outer lights descend through the glass. aroma proclaims divine purpose of the lemon peel - bright and floral and yellow. i sip with high expectancy. the hazy citrus appearance infuses thick clouds of breakfast beverage flavor. i want to drink this beer early in the day - maybe with a coffee and eggs benedict. orangey aftertaste does not offend the initial refreshment or disturb the beer-at-six-AM fantasy. i would drink this beer in the morning before work if i could find the right job. my first - not last - pyramid offering.

Had this one on the Outer Banks. Favorite vacation so far, not my favorite beer. It poured like unfiltered apple juice with a thin head and little to no lacing on the glass. I've mentioned before my problem with bananas so it shouldn't surprise you to know that when i smelled that, it soured me on this beer. However it was mild enough that I was able to discern some other aromas, mango, nutty hops and yeast. It was a thin beer, more fizzy than carbonated and it had a stange pine-y undertone to it. And again, the banana thing. If it wasn't for that, it'd be an easy drinkin light summer beer.

A dry wheat beer with little sweetness and light undertones of fruit. Its lack of body and aroma left me hanging.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a small white head. Aroma of banana, clove, and wheat. Taste has same notes with yeast. Feels a bit watery. Drinkability is Ok.

bread in a bottle, yeasty character, which I prefer more in my belgians than in strong dose in a hefe. This one is crisp yet doughy from a bottle. Not sure how they manage that. Kinda like having a tart funnel cake. Despite the grandios pyramids on the label, this one amounts to more like a crop circle of a hefeweizen.

This is not the best wheat beer I have had ...by quite some distance. Does have a nice bready aroma but that is about it ( I wish they would be a little more adventurous with their hopping in this brew). I had to put a lemon in it to make it better.

Good American wheat beer. Not the best but definitley not the worst. Have had it numerous times on tap and out of the bottle. It is definitely popular in this area.
