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!

Cloudy light amber with a large diminishing frothy white head. Aroma of bread, banana, clove and honey with a hint of lemon. Medium velvety body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Refreshing. Flavor of wheat, lemon, honey, clove, pepper and bread. Better than I expected, but nothing special. If nothing else, at least it looks nice. Good.

a very tatless beer with almost no flavor at all, almost tastes like carbonated water. almost as bad as amstel

Citrusy aroma and a stark white head were its best traits - otherwise it was way off style IMHO - creamy mouthfeel rather than crisp - deep golden color rather than straw yellow. A drinkable brew but not thirst quenching like a hefe should be...

Shadrach (176) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2004
A Mango, yellow/orange color. Malt and lemon in the aroma. Taste was lemon with some wheat and a tang to it. Tolerable, but a bit weak.

DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Aroma of yeast, fruit, wheat, and some hops. Tastes fairly smooth, with a yeast, citrus, fruity finish.

zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [bottle] Pours a cloudy yellow/orange color with a decent sized white head. Aroma of yeast mixed with citrus and wheat. A yeasty taste initially that gives way to a good citrus follow-up and a wheaty/bitter finish.

Not too bad. White head. Not very hazy (no particles). Bold and spicy taste goes flat to boring SA boston beer.

2.4
SiddFinch (156) - Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2004
Big, white, bubbly head that disolves quickly. Taste is yeasty, slightly sweet, with a bitter finish. Got close to not finishing this one.

kwoeltje (2234) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Hazy gold with fluffy white head. Hints of citrus in the aroma-not much yeast aroma. Not much yeast in the flavor either--very mild flavors.

3.2
wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2004
Bottle. Pale golden, hazy with a creamy head. Aroma is yeasty, wheaty and has a bit of lemon. Flavor is slightly spicey and crisp. Good carbonation. Lemon and grass in the flavor.
