Golden, unfiltered with a wheaty aroma. Hints of caramel with mild grapefruit flavors. Some light floral hops and some yeasty tartness, but not enough to make this anything special.

So, cloudy yellow, bit of foam that dissappears quickly. Unfiltered. Something in the smell is wet socks mixed with grass. Hoppy socks. Not good. Mouthfeel is nice, good carbonation, not bad. Taste is banana, but I think slightly too bitter at the finish for the style. Good hops, but just not enough clove for my liking. So, not my pick of the litter for hefeweizen. But not ugly like the smell would have me believe. Not bad, but not my fave.

Lacks flavor. While a lemon will enhance the taste of any hefe, it is a necessity with this one. I am a big fan of hefeweizens but this one is worthless. Too cloudy even for a hefe. If you get it out of a bottle be sure to swirl and still plan on throwing away the last half inch or so in your glass. I have never seen this much yeast settle out of a hefe.

i like wheat beers. but this beer reminded me of an orange soda when it poured out of the bottle. there was barely a head, and the carbonation was very noisy. it had a citrus like subtleness to the taste, but thats about the only taste in this beer. ive had better.

Not a bad American Wheat... though a little too thick and muddy to compete with most Hefeweizens. This is closer to a cream ale or a Smithwicks. Very bitter. Nothing notable about this beer.

Personally any beer that needs a lemon wedge can be poured into the sewer. Take the lemon out and here you have a wheat beer with hardly any flavor and plenty bitter...

Cloudy golden color, small white head. Wheat, malt and slight banana aroma. Citrusy wheat flavor with a bready finish.

this is a mediocre beer at best. not much flavor or taste to it. I had it on tap so that made it a little better. But there was plenty of bitterness, so that was good for something. That being said im not a big wheat beer fan anyways.

This is my first Hefeweizen style beer. Wasnt overly impressed but wasnt aweful either. What really came through to me was the citrus background. I see a lot of people drink this w/ lemon, now I know why. Had this one from Tap w/out lemon or other adder.
