Holy spensive Batman. $17.00 not so nearly as robust CDN dollars for 6.

Certianly has a classic hefe look to it. Same hazy aprocot as the big boys from Baveria.

Although it lacks the banana/bubble gum aroma of it's German Ancestors, still pleasant. Solid malt with a floral fruitiness. Probably the best American made hefe as far as aroma goes...

Slight wheat malt bite coupled with a decent bite of hop. Citrus has been toned down in comparison to say Widmer.

Nice full, velvetly feel.

A shame it's so damned expensive because this is the only brew from the USA labelled a Hefe that actually does a very good job of emulating the euro version while maintaining it's American character.

Had it on tap first and was a hit. Of course they had the gigantic orange slice wedged onto the glass and I knocked it in, on purpose. I was sold. Smooth, flavorful, not over citrusy, good hefeweizen. After a couple I stopped at the local mart and was surprised they had them in six pack form. Got them home, they were not cold enough so I chilled them. Finally cracked one open, poured it into a glass, took a drink and... Not even close. Some beers should never be bottled but left in draught form only and this is one. Not bad hefeweizen at all but if you've had it in draught, it's not the same.

2.53/5  rDev -18.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Odor: Acidic Citrus, Wheat with a faint smell of banana.

Pour: Hazy Orange, Decent head that dissipates to nothing, No lace at all. Served in a tulip pint glass

Taste: Heavy Wheat taste with a faint dry citrus after taste. Light carbonation but enough that it dries out your mouth. Low hops, Light body. Not very complex, More acidic than creamy which tells me that the citrus flavor is coming from additives rather than the fermented wheat.

Mediocre beer, I don't believe this is the best hefeweizen I've ever had, but an ok sample of the style. I can't say I'm a big fan of Pyramid Brewery in general. I've had 2 of their beers today and neither were awe inspiring, just ok. For the price, I've had common domestics that I enjoyed more.
