Pint at "Game Over" adult arcade ( yeah baby!!) in Lincoln City OR $4.50 Pale , slightly hazy yellow body with a small white head..leaves nice lace. Aroma OK has some flowery tea like stuff that could be the jasmine tea. Nice taste to it..wheat,bubble gum and jasmine. Nice enough Good body..well carbonated but still smooth without being watery. Reasonable beer while p;laying Ms.Pacman at a table machine!!! (409 characters)

In my opinion this is what a good hef should be. (48 characters)

Very little foam when poured into the chalice. Clear light amber color. Quite sharp on the tongue with plenty of carbonation in the mouth. Slight beery aroma. Fruity and slightly malty flavor.

The initial few tastes give the impression of a sourish odd sort of wheat beer that has something unaccountably wrong with it. Then I read the fine print. The aftertaste does finally taste like jasmine tea. Reasonably drinkable, but I am not convinced this is something you should do to a Hefe that might have been fairly tasty. From the 12 oz can purchased at Elizabeth Station in Bellingham, Washington. (599 characters)

This is pretty far from a Hefe. Pours almost clear deep straw color, not much head. Aroma is sweet malt and some candied sugar. It has similarity to a dubbel, but pale. Weird and not very drinkable. (199 characters)

On-tap at Bailey's Taproom in Portland OR.

Pours a very light yellow colour with minimal haze, a big negative for a hef. Head is a nice fine white colour, forming a solid egg-white cream across the crown of the beer. Really, though, it's a weak looking beer. Unimpressed.

Nose is yeasty, off and really not in style at all. It has none of the fragrance that suits a wheat-based brew, instead giving plasticene and salty dough. There's a slight pear note, but it's not nearly enough, and it's almost unnoticeable against the other unpleasant characters. Really. Awful. Rubbish.

Taste is similar. Light yeast which lends a character almost like that most appalling Aussie hop Pride of Ringwood. Fetid white corn comes through lending a weak hint of rank, off chilli. Really? This is what you're giving me Gilgamesh? This is very poor indeed. Feel is light but pointless.

Blech. This is genuinely far from being a hefeweizen, and in fact is actively offensive to me. Very, very, unimpressed—so much so, that I'm prepared not to try Gilgamesh again based on the paucity of this example of their craft. (1,111 characters)
