Bottle courtesy of EDA at egadzis Tripel fest (yes I know it is not a tripel and I should have heeded everyone’s warning not to waste my time on this one). Poured a cloudy yellow color with a white head. Aromas of bananas, cloves and a little bit skunky. Wheat in the tastes as well. Thin body. hopscotch (11050) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Harrisburg Beer Festival 2... Draft... Best wheat beer at the festival, IMO. I like it for all the reasons that Hefe fans wouldn’t. Less spice, fewer esters. More nondescript than most German wheats. Refreshing, crisp, Summer brew. If this sounds like your cup of tea, buy it. If you want a more authentic German wheat, avoid it. ’nuff said.

I like Weyerbacher brews. This one is a solid hefe, with good citrus, yeast, and wheat aroma, and a smooth, crisp finish. 3fourths (9331) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2006
This stuff is terrible. IS THIS FILTERED? WHY? It looks completely clear, with a moderately deep straw yellow color, and a fizzy cola-like head that dies in about five seconds. It just plain looks terrible. I had some people tell me that they couldn’t finish a bottle of this, and after a few sips my impression was ’yeah, it’s bad, but I’ve had worse’, but about half-way through I gave up. Down the drain. This stuff is terrible. Full of fuesal corn and moldy straw flavors, acetone.... ugh, just terrible. FROTHINGSLOSH (7697) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2006 This sadly is a fairly poor excuse for a hefeweizen. Sampled from a 12oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy copper color with a small yellow-white head. The aroma is malty, vaguely nutty and has a sour banana element. The flavor is sour with a bitter tang and a light banana underdone. The finish is sour and tangy.

2005 bottle sampled 8/24/2005. Bright mumosa-orange-yellow color. Hazy to begin with, but the yeast settles down and drops to the bottom quickly. White head is big, but diminishes to a film. Light clove, touch of bubblegum and nice malted wheatiness. Not a terribly powerful aroma and quite restrained and even, but good. Flavor is lemon, dry buckwheat pancakes. Bit of sourish yeast and light sugar on the finish. Enjoyable mouthfeel with smooth, low carbonation. Not watery, but a very light body. Very restrained flavor, very dulled by the large amount of wheat. I prefer a lot less wheat to non-wheat malt ratio. But assuming this is what they aimed for, it’s well done. Lightly chewy on the end. Sharp, lightly bitter hops right up front, but they are mostly flavorless. Some hops flavor on the end though, after it has thoroughly warmed.

Bottle: Banana is the strongest aroma with a moderate clove and light pepper aroma. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Citrus and banana up front. Spicey finish with a lot of clove and a hint of vanilla mixed in. Some sourness and light acidity comes thru in the finish and I could really do with out it. Clove lingers for a little in the aftertaste. A decent hefe that is hurt a little by the sour and acidic finish. egajdzis (6502) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Poured a hazy orange gold color with a small white head, but no lacing. Aroma of banana, wheat, citrus, and yeast. Bland taste of citrus orange, wheat, yeast, and light hops. Suttree (6360) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Cloudy orange, big thick white head. Sour citrusy aroma. Slightly astringent. Sour citric flavors, and almost no wheat characteristics until the very end. More of a lemony, juicy sweetness as it warms. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Cloudy and orange with a nice white head. Pronounced citrus is present in both the nose and the taste.
