COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams Hefeweizen has a traditional spin on a classic American craft brewing style. This crisp, fruity wheat ale is cloudy, because the yeast has not been filtered out. Bavarian Spalt hops give the ale a crisp elegance, that is not bitter and leaves a clean aftertaste. Cheers!

12 ounce bottle. Hazy honey gold color. Frothy white head; nice lace. Lemony wheat malt nose. Flavor is yeasty wheat with clove notes. Very Bavarian in style and character. Decent.

ganache (5956) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2017
Bottle. Nose big, sloppy clove but not quite bubblegum; heavy wheat, citrus, extremely fruity. Pour hazy pale yellow-golden with an extremely dense, tightly-packed foam cream head. Taste lightly sweet, lightly bready, low bitterness that’s still too high, faintly tart, green apple, dash of lemon, cream. A lot of the fruit anticipated in the nose is gone, and what’s left is basically grainy and bland. Full, heavy body, clean. [2017.07.01: 2.5]

12 oz bottle from my parent’s fridge. Clear golden appearance with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma of grains, citrus fruit, wheat, light herbs and a mild zesty spice. Similar flavor, adding mild sweetness, light bitterness and a light earthy yeast. Light to medium body with soft carbonation and a smooth finish. Solid Hefe overall.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2017 Blind tasted with 5 other hefeweizens. Beers were: 1. Baderbräu Wheat 2. Neshaminy Creek Highwater Hefeweizen 3. Erdinger Sommerweiße 4. Aufsesser Hefe-Weizen 5. Wolters Weizen 6. Samuel Adams Hefeweizen. Both raters rated the beers 631245.

355ml embossed bottle. Hazed amber gold pour. Fresh flowery scent, some pepper. Falvor is peppery and zippy, fruity, limey.

Astonished that this won the tasting, this beer must have got a makeover or something, this is classic hefe.

Cloudy unfiltered pale yellow color with a blanketing head of white foam. Banana peel aroma from the unfiltered yeast. An easy drinker with a touch of sweet honey and fresh florals surround it all.
