2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured draugh at Rattle N Hum in NYC. Pours very dark, cloudy brown color. There isn’t much aroma to this beer; a slightly sweet smell but nothing notable. There is a mild taste without anything standing out. No banana/colve notes as is typical is many dunkleweiss and hefeweiss beers. Not memorable.
Draft at Rattle with Npodendorf. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Wheaty base, with some light sweetness, very light fruity notes, and low bitterness. Comes up just a bit short, but enjoyable nonetheless. BeerandBlues2 (13822) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Sampled at 4th NoVA Summer Brewfest. Pours hazy brown with a small, fizzy white head, no retention or lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, toast, bread), average hops (floral, citrus), and light esters (apple/pear). Flavor is malt with some hop bitterness. Light body and warmth, medium carbonation and a dry finish. BlackWarrior (220) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - APR 14, 2011
Copper color, white head some lacing. Cereal and some hops greet my nostrils. A light to medium body and good wheat flavor and some earthiness. Overall an easy drinking wheat. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Poured into a weizen glass. Thanks to thagr81us for this.
4.0 A: This is the third RJR brew I’ve had recently and surprisingly this (a wheat ale) has the least amount of carbonation. Hazy yellow-orange color. Two and a half fingers of frothy white head. Average retention and moderate lacing.
3.5 S: Neutral wheat with musky cellar funkiness. Not really anything else going on, but not too bad.
3.0 T: Low in flavor. The strongest flavor is a mild hop bitterness. Neutral wheat, musty funkiness again, and yeasty. Not really any spiciness.
2.5 M: Lighter body. Carbonation is high, but within the style. Not creamy at all like a good wheat and leaves a chalky aftertaste.
2.5 D: I’m not a big fan of this brewery. Nothing really good about this brew.

A straightforward clean tasting dark American style wheat. Not a bad beer, just not a whole lot to it. The finish is the best part, it is mostly malty with a bit of nuttiness. thagr81_us (175) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Served from bottle into a Samuel Smith Euro pint. Pours a yellow-orange with white one-finger head that quickly subsides to a minimal amount. There was no apparent lacing present. The aroma was comprised of only malt and wheat. The flavor was of citrus and wheat. It was light on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this brew kind of lacks robust flavoring to be good. It is not bad however, and would be an awesome lawnmower beer as it is quite smooth and drinkable. Cybercat (6154) - Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2010
Pours a barely transparent hazy golden yellow with a decent white head. Aroma is wheaty, yeasty and just a little lemony, about average for this style. Mouth filling flavor is crisp and wheaty with a nice undertone of citrus, mainly lemon, a little bit of summer sunshine. Texture is smooth and fairly fizzy. SSSteve (4006) - - MAR 5, 2010
12oz bottle. juicy, peachy pear aroma. hazy orange under a very large rocky cream colored head. the fruity pear continues into he flavor with a soft honey toffee flavor. light body. a pretty tasty wheat ale. jkaiser (279) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2009
This is why I don’t like hefe weizens. It’s hard to pull off a great hefe. They didn’t get it right here. Drank it from the bottle. Slight hint of mystery fruit. Overwhelming yeasty taste. One of six on my SC trip. Nov 09
