Golden color, hazy. Smooth, but not as good as other hefes i've had. The wheat character is somewhat subtle, you definetly need to roll the bottle to release the some of the flavor. Trappist (286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 8, 2003
I liked this beer more than I thought I would. It has a pale yellow body and a slighlty foamy head, with a nice bitterness to it that I like. However I really did not notice the wheat to it like you do in a lot of wheat beers. There are better out there. WabashMan (1024) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2003
Cloudy yellowish color and decent white head start this beer. Aroma is alright, but weak in my opinion. Flavor is NOT very wheaty, and has an odd (unpleasant) aftertaste. Not a very good wheat. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2002
Slightly hazy yellow with an apricot hue; bright white, quickly fading head. Slim on the aromatic spices. Hint of fruitiness. Some bitterness in the finish. Pretty crisp and light-tasting, though not bad. Definitely has the "American Wheat" slant. Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2002
This wasn’t too bad. Not as dry as I like my hefes, but drinkable. Not the best from this brewer.

Not as good as I would have expected from Redhook. Just didnt have the citrus flavors of a great hefe, and had a strange aftertaste. jsquire (4420) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2002
This originally poured out of the bottle a clear straw yellow color, but I swirled hard to get some of the yeast in the glass to get a more traditional cloudy beer. Not much nose and a little, fluffy white head. Not much flavor and certainly no spicey tastes that I would expect from a german wheat. A little thin in the body and an odd flavor in the finish. Not a good hefe-weizen at all. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2002
Bit yeasty/astringent aroma, nice wheat beer aromas. Cloudy (unfiltered) butterscotch amber - tiny head. Smooth, light carb with medium body. Many different flavor elements but not all meshed - hit you one at a time. Wheaty (though more like an American wheat, not German). Astringent finish and after, though pleasant.

Golden hue. WHite head dissipates very quickly. Light grain aroma. Different, by no means a real hefe-weizen. Sweet first, light bodied, bitter lingering finish. Im not too impressed. zool (41) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2002
I can’t find any major flaws with it. My only reluctance to give it a perfect score is that its still a an American adaptation of a Hefe-Weizen, not the real thing. However, for the price, availability and effort they’ve put in, its a great beer.
