2.83/5  rDev -8.7%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Poured from 12 oz bottle into nonic glass.
Appearance: pours a 1" head that quickly recedes with some lacing. Color is a quite cloudy orange-yellow.
Aroma: wheat dominates the aroma with some citrus hops and yeasty bread in the background. Mouthfeel: light and watery, a little slick with a drying finish.
Flavor: Caramel barley malt is more prevalent in the taste than the aroma as it balances with the wheat. A hint of banana as well. Citrus rind hops are noticeable but not overpowering in the finish.
Overall: a pleasant wheat beer and appropriate to the style.

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.
