Very hazy gold color with a medium, frothy head. Malty aroma. The taste is a little too filled with dirty grains. The wheat taste is muddled and lost. Slightly more bitter than average, but it makes it a bit more interesting. Some citrus (lemon in particular), but not much.

Nice malty aroma that is typical for the style. Appearance is cloudy and gold. Medium head. A strong citrus hop dominates this hefeweizen from start to finish. In my opinion its a little to much for this style of beer. Pleasant bread like aftertaste that is quickly eclipsed by the bitterness. Good start but needs some fine tuning.

Enjoyable, easy to drink, and pretty easy to find, at least out West. Creamy and slightly sweet, nothing special, but gets points for availability.

Beautiful glowing yellow thats is hazed and confused. Small head which is sad being that they call this a hefe. Nose is light and contains hay and yeast aromas. Flavor is quite bland, but somewhere in there lurks a small peck of wheat, lemon zest, and yeast. Ends with a small spice finish perhaps clove? Decent beer and fair price to pay when its on sale.

Cloudy Yellow unfiltered appearance. Medium Head. Sweet and Fruity aromas. Maintianing fruitiness into the flavor. Also flavors of clove. Nice crisp finish.

Pours a hazy straw color, that is topped by a frothy thinish off-white head. The aroma is bready and yeasty with hints of lemon and fresh cut herbs or grass. The taste is lightly sweet up front with a simple grassy grain character. There is actually some nice subtle spice character to this beer, it seems to be contributed from a combination of the hops and yeast. This beer is also fruity with notes of apple cider, a hint of lemon, and some notes of pear. The finish is fairly bitter for a beer of this style and there is a slight tartness as well, I like the way these elements balance the softer notes that are found up front.

This beer actually has quite a bit more character to it than I was expecting, granted it is still an American Version of a Hefeweizen, but it is tasty enough for a simple quaffing brew.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2008 The surprise of the tasting session...thanks Sam. decanting put a murky yellow-gold ale in my heffe glass. Moderate merigue cap...modest small bubbled carbonation. The nose was wonderful!!....pure bubble gum with some sour dough tones. Very mellow well rounded character for a heffe...not sharp and spritzy...more soft and delicious with the strong banana-clove signature taste profile that rides to the finsh...which is surprizingly light and clean...a wonderful heffe...I will stock up if I have a chance.
