had this on tap. nice cloudy golden color. couldn't detect much aroma (i was going to say it smelled like nachos, but that might have been the nachos we were eating). very drinkable wheaty flavor. this one is a millions times better than Hoegaarden Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2010 Surprisingly light orange in color. Bit of a bite on the palate, but good wheat flavor with well balanced hops. Enjoyable, but not special. Rerate, many years later. Not exactly my best review, but still pretty accurate, and numbers didn’t change, but 1 point on aroma, and 1 down on overall. So the same. UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 12, 2003
On tap at Eli Cannons, May 11th, 2003. Happy Mothers Day, Mom. This one's for you. Beer arrived looking nice and cloudy, opaque even, with a bright yellow color, and a light fluffy white head. It's looking pretty authentic so far. Aroma has some of the banana/cloviness to it, but it seems a little light and underdeveloped. Flavor is decent, albeit a bit bland. Some mild banana and clove, bit not enough. Mostly it's that bland dry american wheat beer flavor. Hopping is pretty agressive for the style. I can actually taste it. I'm not sure that's a good thing, but i really don't mind. Carbonation is moderate and suits the style well. It's a pretty good beer, but I think I'll stick to the german breweries when it comes to hefeweisen. prpplague (247) - Euless, Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2003
thick head with an cloudy yellow orange color. somewhat weak and alchol scented aroma. smooth semi-fruity flavor, a little dry, with just a hint of hops. BeerRunner (144) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 22, 2003
Beautiful, cloudy color with a nice head. Aroma is excellent, taste is delicious, wheaty, hoppy, yeasty. This is a good, refreshing Hefeweizen. Maybe the "Deutsche Snobs" will not like this, but I think it's very good.

Pours a nice shade of gold. Decent light yellow to off-white head. Scent is strong of citrus fruit, wheat and yeast. The taste is similar to the aroma but it seemed a little too citrusy than I prefer and the hoppiness is more pronounced as well. Finishes well but not a great hefeweizen. Not bad by any means, I just prefer German wheats. Suttree (6484) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 13, 2003
Pale golden straw color. I can swear I smelled saltine crackers in the aroma. Thin white head. It has that familiar wheat wang (quit snickering. you know what I mean)and slight banana flavors. Hoppier than most German wheats. JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAR 31, 2003
yellowish color, a bit of cloudyness. Aroma is maybe a little sweet, but almost non-existant. Flavor is clean and smooth, but doesn't really have anything going on in it. I've had much better wheats. hotbod47 (26) - flint, Michigan, USA - MAR 24, 2003
This would be a great beer on a hot summer day. When poured out of the bottle it is cloudy with a golden amber color to it. with a decent medium white head. The flavor isn't at all complex yet it is satisfying and refreshing. good beer to keep stocked in the fridge. BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Orangy yellow in color, cloudy. Smells wheaty. Taste bitter hoppy wheat. Taste much better on tap.
