Blah. Stoudts makes some great beers and this is not one of them. Pour was a flat cloudy light gold with no head. Aroma was so so. Light grain and brown sugar (?). Taste was incredibly sweet with little carbonation. Honey and sugar in the front with a sticky aftertaste. Not very good.

12oz bottle into .3l tulip.

The pour was very foamy initially, perhaps as much as 2:3 ratio of foam to liquid, but it disapeared quickly leaving only traces of lace, which stayed. Cloudy; dirty blond color.

The aroma is a baking aroma, dough or bready. There is some spice to it, not distinctly any one.

The taste doesn't linger much. It is full for a moment, then gone. A bit of fruit, banana-ish, but more like banana pudding or banana bread than a fresh piece of fruit. There doesn't seem to much carbonation. No trace of alcohol.

It isn't hard to drink but there is no overwhelming urge to pour another. Would like it to have a bit more flavor through to the finish.

Stoudts Heifer-in-Wheat is a cloudy, pale golden ale with a thin white head that quickly thins to a film and leaves decent lacing. It has a banana-clove aroma with notes of lemon and wheat. It's pretty light bodied and smooth with a pretty clean finish. It's lightly flavored with banana, clove and lemon-- just like the aroma. It's pretty refreshing.

12 oz. bottle with a label of a brown cow standing in the middle of a wheat field and a red tractor in the background. There's a best before date on the neck of the bottle, but mine was smeared.

When it was poured into a Erdinger Weizen glass, this Heifer was a pale lightly hazy lemon yellow color. The head of foam was about 3/4 of an inch in height and white in color. It had good retention that left behind a small white film and spots of white lace around the glass. I thought the aroma was very peppery with black pepper, sweet yeast, malted wheat, and some candied citrus fruits at the end. I'm allowed to say that it was a unique aroma. This Hefeweizen tasted like candied citrus fruits with malted wheat, a dash of black pepper, and then suddenly ends on a subtle touch of citrus hops. Not really all that much in the taste. If you like citrus fruit candy with a pinch of citrus hops, then you'll love the taste of this Hefeweizen. This was a light bodied beer with a light aftertaste of malted wheat, black pepper, a hint of candied citrus fruits, and a touch of sweet yeast. You know what, I'll give it to Stoudt's for making a unique Hefeweizen. Would I ever try this beer again? I might in the near future.

[Best served in a Weizen glass]

Poured a medium yellow with a very small creamy white head that was fully diminishing and had poor lacing.The aroma was very faint of an earthy yeast and a hay like malt with notes of banana and clove. It tasted mildly yeasty and lightly bitter form start to finish with the end having notes of banana and citus. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a soft carbonation. Overall and OK brew typical of the style.

Picked up at State Line Liquor, a new one. Cloudy yellow with some good foam. Wheat aroma, a bit watery in mouthfeel,coinciding with some creamy mouthfeel and a slight but well-malted down sourness.A clove, even a tad of sugar. OK but nothing special to drink.

No directions or anything else of note on the bottle, so I will jump right in on this one.

I tried really hard to generate some head on this one, but it dissipated as quickly as I poured. Color was a very cloudy orangish-yellow. Nose was banana forward in terms of its esters, underlain by clove. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste had a muted banana flavor on the tongue. Finish was semi-dry and refreshing, but I felt like something was missing. It just did not have the oomph of some of the other hefeweizens that I have tried recently.

This take on a German classic has its ups and downs.

Look: Unfiltered yellow with little head.

Aroma: Lemongrass, banana, cloves.

Taste: Same as aroma...mellow and easy to drink (made for the 90 degree days here in Jersey during summer). Did lack that crispness and breadiness that I look for.

Overall: Worth a try in the summer with some bbq as they are easy drinking and respectable ABV at 5%. That being said, go down the beer isle and look for some common German Hefe's such as Polaner or Scheider Weise and experience the real deal.

Cheers!
