Boring? Dull? This beer is a head turner. I cant make my way through a crowd of people without people asking what Im drinking. That never happens with other beers in my experience. But I guess that is boring. No head? Do you know how to pour this hefe? If you pour it right there is plenty of head. No taste? This has only been the best selling draught craft beer in Portland since 1984, since its release. And Portland knows craft beer better than any other town, with more breweries per capita than Munich. Not a true Hefe? This is only brewed with the oldest strain of yeast direct from Germany and turned into the first American Hefe. But I guess its not a Hefe. Wow. I would love to see a list of what you think is a good beer, but I know you will just provide names of beers that youve read are great, instead of admitting to the Pabst in your fridge.

This is my favorite beer ever. Great for camping because it still tastes good warm, which is amazing for any beer (sold in USA anyway). If youre poor like me, its still worth the extra money. Out west Ive seen it on tap, too bad its hard to find here in Delaware (it does exist here). Very smooth and flavorful.

When my family gets together this is the most popular beer by far, and we always run out of it first. Its incredibly refreshing. Plus its really fun to try and say Hefeweizen after youve had a few! This is the first type of this beer that Ive tried and its so good that its the only Hefe Ill ever need!

If ever there was a beer made to be garnished with a lemon wedge, this is it! Wow! On a hot, muggy day nothing comes close to this brew. Thank you Widmer Brothers for crafting this masterpiece! A++

Much better off tap than out of a bottle. My favorite beer to get a couple pitchers of with my buddies.

My favorite beer so far. Still have many to try. Love the thickness and the aftertaste. Needs to be cold while drinking. Not A very good bottle beer.

Citrus hefenweizen a classic. This is not as good as pyramid, but they are getting a weak rap with only a 2.97, deserves a much higher mark. (hence the slightly high rating.)
