COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This American version of a traditional Bavarian wheat beer is pale gold in color, flavorful and very enjoyable. Two row malted barley and malted wheat give it a crisp but layered maltiness with a light sweetness. Hand selected Spalt Spalter hops impart a bright finish and Bavarian yeast adds a special spiciness. Cheers! Jim Koch

An unclear orang beer with a beutiful head. The aroma is very sweet - with non of the sourness that German hefeweizen usually have. The flavor is sweet, wheaty and malty - and no bitterness. All in all an OK German hefeweizen - but a boring example on my tastebuds.

Bottled. Muddy pale orange. Big banana aroma. Sweet and yeasty with rounded mouthfeel. Stylish and authentic.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Found this in a drugstore on Manhattan only later to experience that it was at least 18 months past it’s best of date. Presumably this does not affect the flavours which I found extremely fresh and fruity as in the best German Weissbiers. Orangey almost amber in colour with a decent if not exactly overwhelming head. Excellent.

Decent for an American weisse. Pours golden. Nose and taste of spices, wheats, light sweetened malts. Rated 6/17/02

Cloudy golden with small off-white head. Aroma is clove, banana, wheat, some orange with light grassy. Taste is much the same, though the wheat is more pronounced. Carbonation a bit above average, though par for the style. Altogether, SA does a pretty decent job with this one.

3.2
DocLock (10689) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Pours pale straw, with good head and lace. Aroma of malt and yeast. Tastes weissy, with a yeast, citrus, fairly smooth finish.

3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Syrupy floor polish nose and flavor, with a soft, smooth witbier flavor that make it’s not completely awful... fluffy marshmallow flavors, oily chemical scents and a resin-like coating of hop oil, as best I can desribe it... that typical SA flavor.

2.8
CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2002
Nice cloudy color, but not much head/carbonation. It has all the components of a good wheat beer, but they don’t seem to flow together well. The initial malt flavor is decent, as well as the yeast after-taste, but in between then, there are a lot of off flavors. Perhaps it was a bad batch, but judging by the other ratings, i’m guessing not.

2.9
Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2003
Pured with a white bubbly head, but it went away too quickly. The beer is somewhat hazy, but not too different than a dark golden Ameribeer. There's a prevalent yeasty aroma, but there's only a hint of it in the citrusy, light flavor. This is one of the more disappointing Sammy products.

2.7
ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 9, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2004 quite spicy and malty, great if thats your thing. havent tried too many weiss beers so i wont say much more. in a general sense, it was ok, too sweet though. with no nice subtle complexities. Like an American influenced ur-weizen. Fairly clear and light yellow, good white head.
