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!

A bit one-dimensional. Drinkable and refreshing but not much else. Bitter note in the beginning, followed by some acidity.

12oz bottle part of the summer beers pack 2017. Nose is bubblegum. surprised this is listed as a Wheat Ale. Spicy finish with bug what notes. a tad funky. a little too sweet, but much better than the current 2.7 average.

Stampion (257) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Pours a slightly cloudy light amber (not as cloudy or unfiltered as most other hefs). Mild banana and spice taste. Smoother and more forgettable than similar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Samuel Adams Hefeweizen has a thick, frothy, white head, a hazy, golden appearance, with a descending gray cloud, following the "swish & pour", and some glass lacing. Aroma is of banana, coriander, spiced white bread, and maybe bubble gum base. Taste is of those elements, with a touch of bitterness, at the end of the sip. Mouthfeel is high medium and soft, and Samuel Adams Hefeweizen finishes medium dry. RJT

Mix 12 pack fodder. Pretty heavy hefe with creamy almost malty body. Has the banana clove taste, pretty sweet. Just okay.

oobawa (1192) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Way too much hate given to this beer, probably due more to its maker than its actual quality. Not a great hefe, no, but drinkable as hell, offering up strong banana-clove notes while retaining a modestly bitter finish that never roams into soap territory. Yeast pops on the end, and the fade remains appreciably dry. Silky smooth texture feels just about right, and the banana-clove nose is on point. Looks beautiful, by the way, a hazed yellow gold topped by a frothy white head leaving tons o lace. Better than the RB average suggests.

Oscbert (1288) - Lincoln, California, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Yeasty aroma of light banana, clove, and vanilla. Bready malt, spicy hop. Pours a hazy golden color with disappearing white head. Dominate clove flavor with subdued banana and bread. Medium bodied with medium co2, lingering yeasty clove finish. I prefer hefeweizen to be more on banana side than clove, but this one is drinkable enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this one years ago and wasnt all that impressed then and still not all that impressed now. Smells of wheat and some orange and the taste is not much different. Its OK but seems to be lacking some spice to make it a real Hefeweizen. At least it still comes in bottles!

Quick3Beers (1171) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 8, 2017
Pours a somewhat dark for the style amber from a bottle, immediate nose of banana and cloves, similar flavor, somewhat spicy. Okay beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
