On tap at Sundance, served in a pint glass with a wedge of lemon.
While Golden Spike "Hefeweizen" is not a bad beer, it is fairly bland, boring, and middle-of-the-road. Surprisingly malty with a small amount of citrus up front, I get far more flavor from the pilsener malt than I do the wheat. It is actually pretty far from a Hefeweizen, and, despite the wheat, drinks more like a bland pale ale.
I wouldn't really recommend the beer. It lacks any of the character I associate with a hefe: no clove, no spiciness, no banana, almost no citrus, no brightness in the mouth, almost no aromas in the nose. In short, it's just plain boring.
Serving type: on-tap

Cloudy orange colored beer with a medium sized white colored head.
Smells lightly sweet and of wheat flour with with a spicy clove scent. Spicy smells like there might be a little coriander in it.
Starts out with a soda cracker malt flavor. Little bit of clove flavor. Still very lightly flavored.
Mouthfeel is average.
Overall a mild unoffensive ale. Still it is what it is. 4% Utah beer.
Serving type: bottle
