2.68/5 rDev -13%
Cloudy orange with a small white colored head.
Smells semi-sweet with some banana scent. No clove detected.
Starts out with a neutral soda cracker taste. Mineral water and over carbonated feel actually stings a little. Overall it tastes pretty bland.
Mouthfeel is good.
Overall a nearly tasteless beer but I can't say it is offensive.

sort of a strange hybrid beer here. more of an American wheat than a german hefe, although there are elements of both present. the pour is surprisingly clear for the style, straw colored, with a big frothy white head. the nose is fine, just not exciting. wheat malt, some less than authentic yeast, and very little of that banana clove combination we all know and love in the hefeweizen. taste is a little floral, probably from the yeast, and a little heavy on the malt, despite the very low abv for draft here in Utah. I was pretty underwhelmed by this in terms of flavor and authenticity, but it did like the mouthfeel. its expansive and bright without being overcarbonated or heavy. its a good mix, but this beer is far too generic to turn heads. was refreshing after a long day of snowboarding, but its not going to be on my buy it again list.

APPEARANCE: This beer, poured from a tap into a weizen glass, produced a white foamy 3/4" head that dissipated quickly leaving thin head lacing. Carbonation was moderate in a cloudy gold body. Looks quite appealing so far.
AROMA: A moderate scent of grainy wheat (no surprise) with light whiff of yeast and a hint of lemon hops. A clean, gentle aroma overall.
TASTE: Like the nose only the wheat tasted a little more like toasted bread than I would have expected from the aroma and the taste of lemon hops was slightly more prominent than I expected. The taste was pleasant and pretty well defined.
MOUTHFEEL: This beer has a light to medium body with a smooth texture, moderate carbonation and thin body lacing that dissipates quickly. The initial flavor is somewhat dry with a lightly sweet wheat infusion at the finish that lasted for a moderate length of time.
DRINKABILITY: Very repeatable, this is a good session beer for a hot day. I liked the initial tartness followed by the wheat breadiness that through half way and stays. It provides good value for the dollars spent and is easy to drink. I'd definitely buy it again and would serve it to friends at the right time of year.
NOTE: This beer is NOT retired.

Subtle would be a kind way to describe this. I don't think the word "hefeweizen" can be used around this stuff. It's clearly an American Wheat and a prime example of my lack of respect for that style. Perhaps the most watery wheat beer I've had. So light that it would give Corona a run. If you can get a big enough gulp there is some beery flavor as it goes down. Taste evaporates fast. Slight beeriness in the nose. Quite sharp without any malt to mellow the stuff.
And to think I dissed the Unita Hefeweizen for being anemic. This one is on life support. The label calls this "American Wheat Hefeweizen" and it's a product of the Utah Brewing Cooperative.

Pours a light golden color with the expected cloudiness. There’s some foam.
Very faint aromas, even as it warms. To be honest, I’m not picking up a lot of anything on the nose when what I’m expecting are those big estery hefe aromas. First impressions aren’t favorable. Light beer, almost a blonde ale finish. Banana and clove extremely muted. I’m straining to catch them. Some orange peel. No real spice/hefe characteristics to speak of? As I sip I’m left wondering where’s the yeasty esters, the big clove and banana aromas, the vibrant, refreshing buoyancy of a hefe? I’ll admit that hefeweizens are not my favorite style but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t appreciate a good one. This ain’t it. Pass.

Imported from my ratebeer.com profile - JUL 21, 2007
Smells like wheat and citrus, tastes pretty much the same. Very easy to drink, nice color, aftertaste is good. Medium bodied, crisp, light carbonation, watery and thin. Rather dull. This comes off a lot more like an American wheat ale than a hefeweizen. The 4% ABV certainly does not help matters.

The American Wheat Hefeweizen from Squatters was not too shabby. I thought the color was a bit strange...it was a very pale yellow almost like white grapefruit juice color. Very cloudy and had a thin white head. The scent had some banana and slight hints of clove. The taste started real nice, lil sweet, but the finish was a bit grainy. The mouthfeel was very light and refreshing and fairly easy drinking. Worth a taste.

Served on tap at the airport pub.
This one really has a good look to it, beautiful color and haziness. This is by far the best looking beer I've had from Squatter's so far.
The smell is mostly citrus, a little banana, very nice.
The flavor is definitely heavy on the wheat, with a milder citric profile than the nose. A little weaker than I was hoping.l
Easy to drink ,tastes great... this is my favorite from Squatter's so far.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a white head that leaves little lacing.
Smell is very faint wheat & fruit
Taste is very bland, slightly sour lemon/banana.
Not a very good representation of the style. Does not have that heffe smell and taste. Pass on this one if you see it.

Had at the brewpub in Salt Lake City. Beer was part of a sample tray. Served from the tap into 4 oz sample glasses.
A-golden hazy body and a white ring head
S-faint fruit smell, nothing else
T-little flavor at all, standard malt and hop balance with some bannana at the end.
D-No thanks. this style screams for something to be done with it. It just seemed flavorless to me.

A - A cloudy gold. I'd hoped this was unfiltered; the appearance makes it look as such. Not too much head, but then again, they did give the pint a bit of a stadium pour.
S - Not knowing this was classified on BA as an American Pale Wheat, not a true hefe, I did think it smelled a bit clean for a hefe. Standard wheat bread.
T - And I thought it tasted clean for a hefe, but it was mostly enjoyable. Again, standard wheat bread, but to me it seemed to satisfy more than many examples of this style.
F - Light-medium body, heavily carbonated.
D - My companion favored this, while I favored the pale ale. Still a good one, though, a bit more satisfying than some of the other beers we had.

Some Squatter's beers aren't bad for being only 4% abv, but this one doesn't make th cut. There are both wheat malt flavors and fruity/spicy yeast character, but everything seems watered down and it all comes out as an almost unpleasant mess. As in, there's a pleasant flavors, but they're not mixing right. Send this one back to the drawing board.
