Punching through a variety pack of Pyramid beers that I have left over from Thanksgiving...

appearance - yellow, cloudy/unfiltered, white head, some retention

smell - lemon/citrus/orange

taste - citrus notes and malt

mouthfeel - medium body and carbonation

overall - this isn't the pinnacle of a hef but it's an okay session beer when you're not trying for the best

This beer pours a clear gold with 1/2 inch, rapidly disappearing head. The aroma is ofbread crust, fruit, and a hint of caramel. It's flavor consists of fruity caramel, hay, vanilla, and slight apple notes which has a caramel apple flavor in the finish. The mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Pyramid Haywire Hefeweizen is a good beer full of flavor. Recommended.

On tap at The Grove, San Francisco.

Appearance is the typical cloudy yellow you see in hefes.

Smell wasn't really there for me. Faint smell of bananas and cloves, but BARELY.

Taste wasn't all there either. It had the typical hefe taste, but somehow diluted.

Overall, it's an ok hefe style beer. I'd get it again if it was on tap and nothing else sparked my interest. There are better hefes out there though.

33cl brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a Hard Rock cafe hefeweissbier glass in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live.

A: Pours a four finger head of fair thickness, nice cream, and good retention. Orange-gold colour, semitransparent.

Sm: Orange peel citrus ester hops accompanied by pleasant barley and malt. A mild strength aroma.

T: Decent orange peel, a moderately full barley body, and slight malt tones. Simple, pretty badly built, and sort of balanced.

Mf: Smooth and wet, with a touch of unwelcome sharpness. Doesn't really complement the flavours of the body.

Dr: Drinkable enough, but offered at a high price and not good quality.

Bottle from Beer Crazy served in a SA glass

Pretty cloudy dark-gold color with a good amount of head. That's where the fun stops. The aroma has bits of wheat and grain, not much else. The taste is rather light, some wheat with lemon and a hint of floral. It's pretty smooth but has a thin body. It's an ok beer but there isn't much to it.
