Unfiltered dark golden with a nice off-white head. Grainy aroma dominates with light fruity notes. Grainy, fruity and yeasty flavor. Light-medium bodied and refreshing fruitiness for a wheat beer.

Very nicely balanced American Wheat ! Always seem to prefer the bottled version of this over the draft versions I have had ... not sure why.

As usual the folks from Pyramid come through. I was with a freind who normally only drinks Miller uugghhh. He asked me to pick a beer for him and this is the one I chose. To my delight he loved it and even ordered several more. It has a very good look and taste excellent with or wothout a slice of lemon, though I prefer the lemon. A great beer for a hot day of sitting on the porch and talking with friends......CHEERS

This beer poured a hazy color, with a real foggy look in the glass. The head was a small one that really didn't last. The overll smell was hoppy with a hint of wheat. and the taste was ver crisp. One of the nicer hefe's i have drank. A recomended beer for the fans of the hefe-wiezen. All in all I would say this is a good beer and would drink it agian. Especially during the summer time.

I find this to be one of the easiest beers to pound back one after another.

A- Hazy translucent light-wheat color with a decent head.

S- Smells like sweet wheat

T- Tastes like sweet wheat, with hops coming out in the end for a grand finale

M- Unfiltered, yet light excellence

D- Gimme another please

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - poured from a 355ml bottle into a pilsner glass. It pours cloudy amber with a white head. The head shrinks to a ring and laces slightly.

S - bubble gum, citrus, light banana and mango

T - peach, banana, mango, light lemon, bubble gum and a delicate spice/fruit finish

M - medium carbonation, medium body, light pulp/fiber feeling as it goes over the tongue and a neutral finish

D - big bubble gum smell and lots of fruit flavors here. Flavors are a bit muted compared to my favorite wheat beers but this is still highly drinkable.

A: Disinguishes a very cloudy amber color with orange shades, ephemeral foamy head, i like the logo, look's like a Picasso painting;

S: Fruity, some guava, peach and banana, very good;

T: Wheat, lemon, and orange with malt;

M: Dry and bittersweet, high carbonation

D: The sweeter hefeweizen i ever tasted, remain some kind of pulp and bottom, it's very tasty too.

Poured into a pint glass.

A- two finger white head from an aggressive pour. Impressed with the appearance of this beer. Very light amber/lemonade look. I would have liked to see a more persistant head though.

s- Like the appearance, smell is pleasant and peppered with citrus and fruity notes. Also some mild hops.

T-refreshing taste with mostly malt and some hops at the end to add a small bite. Based on the smell and the appearance, I am a little dissapointed with the taste. Don't get me wrong it is pleasent, but not very complex.

M-Easy drinking.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: cloudy orangish color. Thick lacing throughout.

Smell: typical hefe-yeast smells.

Taste: solid, fruity hefe esters.

Mouthfeel: great carbonation levels; smooth.

Drinkability: nothing earth-shattering, but I found this to be very good.

Unlike some of the other Pyramids I've had, quality control issues not apparant.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Cloudy. Deep orange in color with golden yellow highlights. Full, bright white head that holds OK. The aroma offers a little fruitiness, with some citrus in it, over a background maltiness. The mouthfeel is quite creamy, derived from a medium/full body and moderate level of tight, natural carbonation (@2.5 volumes CO2). The pin-point bubbles gently glide to the surface. The flavor has a soft tart note, a gently sweet maltiness and a subtle, balancing bitterness. The finish is short, with a honey-like sweet malt character. A very nice beer. Quite distinct amongst many American Wheats in that it emphasises the malt component, rather than allowing the hops to show, and has an interesting light tartness from the yeast. Very enjoyable.
