3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The key to rating this beer is on the label. It says American Hefeweizen. This is not a german hefe and should not be treated like one. It will be lighter in texture and drier. There may even be a hint of bitterness to it. These are all there. Having said that, it could still be more. The aroma is more like a wheat ale. It is a bit muted with a floral touch. The body is light and the mouthfeel is lively. The finish again is dry with a touch of hop bitterness. A good example of an Americanized hefeweizen. Refreshing.
From old tasting notes. Immensely cloudy gold color. Dense creamy white head. Yeasty, citrus malt nose. Tart grapefruit wheat malt flavor. Dry finish. Interesting. maupie (1101) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2017

Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with minimal white head. Not much lacing. Nose is wheat, banana, and some citrus. Sadly there isn’t much spice. Taste is lemon, banana, orange zest, wheat, and just a hint of pepper. Light bodied with a crisp finish. I have no idea why this is getting bombed here in the ratings; it’s not a knock out but it’s pretty darn drinkable.

Love wheat beer. Beautiful colour and taste. Goes down really well. Squeeze a bit of lemon and it accentuates the taste.

Very light. Pretty lame. Cardboard like. Tastes like a green bottle beer. Pass. douglas88 (9508) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 24, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy orange hue with a medium white head. A nice smooth biscuit and lemon nose. Light, refreshing, bready malts, some lemon zest, a bit of banana esters. Pretty nice. No idea how I have not rated this. grubypawel (358) - - MAR 1, 2017
It’s sad that the label says hefeweizen. This would by an okayish American wheat ale. No cloves/bananae whatsoever. Just the grainy notes of wheat. This is drinkable, but I don’t see a particular reason to drink this. superspak (5793) - Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2017
12 ounce bottle into weizen glass, bottled on 5/17/2016. Pours hazy golden/straw color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, banana, orange peel, peppercorn, clove, pear, apple, light bubblegum, wheat, cracker, lightly toasted bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, citrus/earthy hops, and moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, banana, orange peel, peppercorn, clove, pear, apple, light bubblegum, wheat, cracker, lightly toasted bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, banana, orange peel, peppercorn, clove, wheat, cracker, lightly toasted bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, citrus/earthy hops, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from bitter/spiciness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/creamy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a nice hefeweizen. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, citrus/earthy hops, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink. Very well balanced and nicely flavorful; never feeling bland/watery for the low ABV. Pretty classic feeling style flavors. A nicely enjoyable offering.
