typical american hefe...cloudy yellow murk, with a poofy whte head served in the apporopriate glass with a lemon....man we dont need no stinkn lemons. slightly thinner on the palate then i expected. slight banana yeast flavors with a crispness on the end.

Yeasty aroma with some stone smoke. I forgot to swirl the glass to get the yeast, as is suggested on the neck of the bottle. Therefore, I poured some of the beer back in the bottle and did it after the fact. Still only a pale, hazy banana yellow. Nowhere near the head or retention as I got in the same glass with Erdiner Hefe Weizen. Initial mouthfeel provides a little more flavor and doughyness than the Erdinger, but at the back of the tongue, there is a faint sourness that doesn’t seem appropriate for the style. This is definitely an American take on the hefeweizen style. The hops used are a dead giveaway. Wants to be better than it is, but is falls flat. Needs more oomph. After getting a pretty good sampling of Schlafly brews (this is my 5th), I am torn. On the one hand, I recognize them as clearly an above good brewer, but they have a little work to do before they can be considered elite. 50 to go for the big 1k.

on tap at the end of a tour of the Schlafly Bottleworks. a very, very pale and hazy yellow with little head. extremely mild in flavor. not much of the typical wheat, banana & clove of most hefe’s.

iloveschlitz (5) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 6, 2005 does not count
Not a bad beer, but not much taste to it. Very smooth and mellow. From a bottle, it poured a hazy, cloudy yellow. The waiter put a lemon slice on the glass which promptly fell into the glass, so there was a moderate lemony taste.

alaskanwarren (286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2005
Poured a pale yellow, hazy, white head. Aroma of wheat and citrus. All in all the taste felt a little light. I would have liked smaller bubbles to match the lightness to give it more of a champagne feel. All in all, it was still good, but just a little weak.

kwoeltje (2234) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JUN 8, 2005
(draught at the Tap Room) Hazy yellow with white head. Served with a lemon. Aroma of yeast and citrus (? the lemon). Light and refreshing. Light malt flavors with noticable yeast.

Sampled at the brewery, and was by far the best beer sampled there. Sweet and wonderful, this beer made me happy inside.

2.6
steview (1088) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAY 23, 2005
on draft at a bar at some ritzy hotel in downtown St. Louis / hazy golden yellow. the lemon helps. yes, very little flavor noted, but good anyway. i don’t understand why this would rate under a 2. pale, indeed. light banana, light spice, yet completely refreshing albeit it being like water.

SmellGood (339) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - APR 23, 2005
Very little flavor noted. Much paler than my limited wheat beer experience remembers. Unsatisfying.

2.9
biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2005
Peach colored and cloudy with a loose white head. Sharp and fruit aroma with bread and yeast. Grainy and somewhat thin in body with a slightly hoppy finish.
