2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not the biggest fan of Hefe beers, but I liked the taste of this one........
From old tasting notes. Cloudy, yellowish gold color. Big bubbly white head. Huge citrusy wheat malt aroma. Crisp, spicy wheat malt flavor has a peppery character that lays on the palate. thicksuds (451) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Below average hefe, a bit watery, not much taste going on, pretty much run of the mill, not really too impressed. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 25, 2010

I haven’t seen this in 6 packs in years, but I do recall the days when I’d get this and meticulously roll the bottle back and forth on the table to release the sediment so I could have a nice, cloudy pour. A bit uninitiated to beer-nerddom at the time, I took it for what it was worth, a nice tasty beer. I’m sure nowadays it’d pale next to 99 out of 100 other hefes I try, but I liked this enough to take the time to rate it. Last time I drank this was in Dallas, TX back in 1997. gmonroe10 (243) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2008
Bottle at Chicos. Pours a standard hefe- cloudy gold, with good white head. Aroma is yeast and a bit of citrus, not overpowering. Taste is refreshing and moderate spice- could use a bit more flavor. Very little hop.

Had this beer on 4/3/1999. Color is a pale hazy gold with very good carbonation and good head. Aroma is an odd sour malt scent. Taste is a little more bitter than other Hefe-Weizen’s I’ve had. It starts with medium light body that goes down crisp with a bitter feel. The finish is odd, there’s bitterness coming from the malt flavors as well as the hops. There is also a hop flavor in there somewhere. Overall it doesn’t fit as a Hefe-Weizen and is not much fun to drink. fro2218 (471) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 26, 2007
cloudy yellow in color. some yeasty smell and a little citrus. No bitterness really and seems to need a little something to round it out. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

Nice light yello with that white lace along the glass. Nice wheat phenolic flavors. Good drinking summer type brew sandygoonie (48) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2006
Very light, with a german light hop aroma and cloudy appearance. Has a light easy does it mouthfeel, that has some phenolic spiciness to it. Finishes very dry and smooth.
