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!

Spicy dough and banana aroma. A golden body with a faint haze. A smooth dough taste with a mild spiciness. Zesty yet smooth. Mild bodied and very drinkable.

Hazy golden hue with a fast dissipating bone white head. Semisweet nose with notes of caramelized wheat and light banana bread. Crisp mouthfeel with a medium body and a lot of the same flavor notes that were in the aroma; sweet caramelized wheat, a bit of banana bread, super gentle spices and a bready finish. Average and predictable, but enjoyable.

Lounge beer on draft Admirals Club JFK T8. Server didn’t know what the "Sam Adams Seasonal" was but this looks and tastes like a hefe. Cloudy variegated golden yellow color. Aroma of citrus bubblegum. Taste is lightly bitter spiced wheat and cutrus, light banana. Decent choice.

tightslice (1313) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 9, 2017
Bottle from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is mild perfume, lemon, stargazer lilies. Taste is chalky, floral perfume, something potpourri spiced. Pretty gnarly stuff.

gripweed57 (2462) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2017
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.

2.5
ganache (5905) - 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]

ajnepple (6623) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2017
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.
