Every time I visit this brewpub, I’m less impressed. This ’hefe’ is a dark opaque ruby red. And it’s sweeeeet ... only a vague yeast, but otherwise an overly candied beer, not recommended as a weizen. PhillyBeer2112 (2903) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2003
(Draught, St. Louis airport). Hazy gold. Clinging head. Very weak aroma - with little to report on other than a tinge of malt. Light lemony citrus flavor leads to a surprisingly bitter finish. Way over-hopped compared to its weak malt profile and lack of esters. Hop bitterness is one-dimensionally bitter with no distinct flavor. Decently smooth palate. hotstuff (5273) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Not a true representation of a German Hefeweizen in my opinion.Poured a small sized white head with fine-large sized bubbles that fully diminished.The body was cloudy with a yellow hue.The nose was that of banana with a fruity and sweet flavoring.The mouthfeel was smooth, thin and somewhat watery and it was light bodied. thedm (6320) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 21, 2003
5 oz draft sample at the brewery. This brew poured a small head of fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and a hazy yellow apricot colored body. It had a mild bready aroma and a smooth bubbly mouthfeel. The flavor contained notes of dough. It went down very smoothly and I did enjoy the brew, but compareatively it was not like a real German hefe.
