On tap at Beef OBradys in Lynn Haven, FL. Well folks, other than Red Hood IPA, this is the pinnacle of available "craft brews" in Panama City. No wonder I want to open my own place. This stuff is ok, but to think this is as good as it gets makes me want to heave. The pour offers a small white head that quickly fades. Hazy gold with the white glow of the yeast in suspension. Lightly citrusy, yeasty, wheat-grainy nose. Med/light body.Yeasty, light malt flavors, with maybe a hint of fruit...maybe bananas?. The mouthfeel is very thin. They throw a slice of orange or lemon in which doesnt help things at all. Finish is dry...yep, thats about it. Well, I guess you could do worse.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2005 Pours out hazy yellow color with a head. Nice citcus aroma. Kinda light, nice citcus flavor. Sweet finish from malt. Not bad. Go great with pizza.

I was a bit disappointed by this. I thought that it was rather light and did not have the nice, sweet and spicy taste that I like in a good wheat beer. Ok, but lacking some grunt.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is light giving off a hint of lemon. Taste is not as complex as the German Hefes, there was not much spiciness or clove notes. Pretty sweet with flavors of banana, wheat and lemon. A little bland. The mouthfeel was full and round. Not bad by any means but it needs more. Eh.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - OCT 5, 2004
Hazy and gold. Not much head at all. Not much aroma either. Smells like wood. Not a lot of flavor or bitterness. Wheat is the most dominant flavor. Gets almost soapy tasting after a bit. It would probably be an adequate beer on a warm summer day after mowing the lawn.

arhythmt (69) - Alabama, USA - SEP 28, 2004
Vastly overrated, but I guess its indicative of the American hefe style. Murky beer, tastes slightly less wretched with a lemon slice, which should tell you that its very citrus-heavy to begin with. Im not a fan of the American hefeweizens, and this beer does nothing to change that.

mjg74 (3042) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 22, 2004
Pours a very hazy golden color. Aroma is sweet and hoppy. Mild wheat flavor. A little sweetness and hoppiness. Not a ton of flavor, but it is a good refreshing brew.

One of my favorites, but I admit to enjoying it more on draft than in bottles! Fortunately, more places in the NYC/NJ area are carrying it!

This brew pours a cloudy yellow with a light white head. The aroma is kind of sweet smelling and the taste is that of any typical hef.

Had a lot of floaters (if memory serves me correctly - which it might not) but thats typical of an unfiltered wheat beer. Overall, nice flavor and aroma. Im looking forward to trying some more from Widmer Brothers as this is my first beer tasting from them.
