Widmer Bros knows how to brewing a hefeweizen. Lots of good malty dough and yeast flavor balanced out with some hops.

StilleStorm (1505) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2016
DAA; Bottle 355 ml, from Vinmonopolet. Pours moderate, cloudy gold with a frothy, fading, still lacing white head. Nose is moderate, malt, wheat, yeast, grass, citrus, light perfume and spice. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a somewhat lasting orange finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat to soft.

bartlebier (3821) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2016
12oz sampled from BH as Hefe (arrived fresh bottled JUL2015, ach those trade routes). - Bref: does for Hefe what Blue Moon did for Wit. A wheat ale by any other name still wouldnt be a Weizen. Cascades saving the show over white bready wheat, spent lemon drops, dusty fruitloop-loco where the actual Hefe wont go. Very thin bodied, stone fruit peel wheat radler. Hm. File under: US Craft does not do mature German styles any justice - update that NW Widmer-SW Kirchzarten connection. Hard to taste where this once was a pioneer beer of the movement.

Muggus69 (2366) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2016
330mL bottle from Booze Bud. BB?AUG1815 Hazy pale gold beer, small sparce white head. Mild aroma - grainy cereal malts, touch of cooked apple & apricot fruit esters(?). Medium bodied, carbonation somewhat subdued for style. Grainy wheaty malts on the body, touch of ripe pear & apricot fruits, slight spiciness, subdued bitterness to finish. Daresay its a bit past its best.

larsga (7481) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 19, 2016
Big white head doesnt last. Hazy opaque pale yellow body. Fruity mealy dusty aroma. Dryish mealy dusty taste with fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish mealy dusty aftertaste with faint fruity notes. Well. American wheat ale is usually not great, but this was below the already dismal average. Unfresh. (0.355l bottle, from wine monopoly, Lillehammer.)

Popoff91 (124) - Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2016 12-ounce bottles in a pint glass. Typical great aroma and large head found in wheat beers, unfortunately less flavor than some others as well. Not bad for the price; enjoyable, just not as good as some of Widmers other offerings.

ston3s42 (234) - - APR 2, 2016
Cloudy golden appearance with little head. Tastes of apple, caramel, grass, herbs and peppery bubblegum. Medium body, fine carbonation, and a finish of caramelly apples. Quite refreshing and tasteful.
