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 golden color. Aroma is grassy and not yeasty like I was hoping. Flavor has a spicy twist to an Americn wheat taste. I think the word Hefeweizen should be outlawed from all bottles unless it is a German style hefe. This beer soen;t do it for me.

Bottled. Poured a cloudy golden color with very little head. The flavor had a nice citrus touch with a lot of spice. This is a good refreshing summer beer, but I MUCH prefer the Sam Adams Summer Ale.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2005 Had this at Cujo’s in Hampton VA while I watched AS Monaco beat Chelsea 3-1. The glass came out and was a clouded blond. Small white head. Nose was yeast, malt and some fruit. It was "dumbed down" a bit because they put a lemon in the glass. I hate that! However, the taste was rather bland. Some yeast, light spice and malt. The finish was pretty much the same but was more bland. Sure it had a hefe-weizen characteristics, but on draft this day, it was much more than a wheat flavored Budweiser. Tolerable, but nothing I’d seek out in any way. ***RERATE*** Bottle. Clouded gold with a small white head. Nose is big wheat, light yeast, faint citrus, and banana. Some grainy notes as well. Taste is wheat, light yeast, bubblegum, some sugary notes and fruit. Much better than remembered. Body is light and sort of fizzy at times, but still refreshing. Finishes semi-sweet with wheat, yeast more fruit notes and light bubblegum. Much better than before.

Tastes like a hefe with the banana/clove flavors removed from it. Wheaty taste, somewhat citric and acidic and a bit drying in the finish. Boring beer and it seemed to be the perfect substitute for Ex-Lax.

A picture perfrct brew, that, fails on the palte. The palate is pretty flavorless. I bought this to try, because I thought it was Bavarian in style. However, this beer is in the American style.

My boy Sam has made a great beer here. I like the taste and the appearance is brilliant. It is the best beer made by Mr. Adams.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2004 Like I've said before "Hefeweizens are always good" This is no exception. Nice smooth, clean taste. May be one of my favorite Samuel Adams brews. As Samuel Jackson would say "MMM MMM BITCH!!!"

Nice and bright, only slightly bitter notes. Not terribly cloudy, only a slight denseness. Rich golden color, rather ugly crusty residue (called lacing?) on the glass. A well-enjoyed pint, but one with only gestures and nods toward the Hefeweizen style.

2.9
sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2004
Extremely hazy golden, lots of white floaties, and a minimal white head. Aroma of citrus and, I think, some peach. Mild wheat taste, very light hop taste at the end; not bitter. Light and crisp. This stuff badly needs a flavor boost.

2.3
badgerben (5327) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2004
Very golden color with little head. Mild wheat taste and aroma. It was certainly clean, I'll give it that, but it didn't have much flavor to it at all.
