3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is earthy with some grassy hops. Flavor is grass hops with strong malt and wheat. It really tastes like a hoppy hefeweizen, with a little less banana and clove notes. Overall, I really enjoyed this beer, but that has a bit to do with me enjoying hoppy beers more than wheat beers. So if you want a little IPA in your Hefe, try this one.
22oz bottle. Poured a cloudy amber color with an off white head. Stale bread / wheat, some spice, and citrus. Yep, could tell this one was sitting in my basement way toooooo long. Patrickctenchi (6561) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 21, 2015
Clear, dark amber with a small, off-white head.
Bready, semi-oxidized wheat and orange aroma.
Herbal, orange-peel bittering.
Stale wheat malt.
Not really fair, as this was past it’s prime, but...that’s my reaction...quite unpleasant. shrubber85 (11324) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 15, 2015
Bottle (courtesy of Cybercat). Weedy orange peel and orange wheat malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Sweet orange wheat malt and moderately bitter metallic grapefruit peel flavor. Decent body. slowrunner77 (11938) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 30, 2014
"called a wheat ipa, but is really a hoppy wheat beer, not the other way around. the hefe part definitely takes the lead here. pours a muddy yellow-brown with an intriguing aroma, though in 3 months the hops seem to have already faded. a slightly above averahe hefe with a slight hint of floral hops in the aroma and a touch of bitterness."

Rated from notes taken 8 Jun 2011 -- Very interesting flavors going on in this beer. Hmmm...

Thanks to Chaney for this snack!
A: pours apricot on apple cider in both color and clarity - as expected. Less than single finger loose white foam falls to tortuous sheet of the same. Cobweb lacing.
S: reminds me of a beer I made called "plastic pale ale". Has some processed petrol smells, and cloves, and the sharpness I sometimes get from wheat. Not particularly hoppy.
T: the yeast here is well played. If this were a simple Weiss bier, it would be shit, but it is not. Nice astringent edges help accentuate the yeast and wheat additions to this beer.
M: heavy body with fine and persistent carb. Dry.
O: good stab at a style outside the box.

5/6/2011. From bottle. Poured cloudy light amber with a white head. Aromas of malt, bread, spice and light fruit. A lot more hops than your regular wheat ale - a big plus in my book. edgallow (4165) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 4, 2013
22 oz bottle pours amber with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts, bananas, grass and spice. Taste is malts, fruit and bread. gripweed57 (2314) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2012
22 ounce bottle. Hazy amber orange color. Rocky white head last long with nice clinging Belgian lace. Aroma is a cross of toasted malt and piney hops with hints of Belgian candi sugar and Kraft macaroni and cheese. Upfront, flavor is toasted wheat malt and subtle grapefruit hops. I taste vanilla and marzipan. Lots of complex hops and lemongrass at play. Overall, a tasty hybrid that lacks real definition of style. Good none-the-less. jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 18, 2012
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours copper with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of a good amount of floral and light citrusy hops, caramel malts, and wheat. Flavor the same. Smooth texture. A good blend of these two styles.
