I am a fan of Hefe-weisen's. Unfortunately, not many American breweries can come close to the German breweries.

This one pours kind of cloudy and orangish. The head is weak for a hefe. The nose is yeasty and citrusty with some bread. Taste is bready fruity and a little spicy but really falls short of the overall satisfaction of body and mouthfeel that true hefe's exhibit. Even though there are some flavors there, it comes across as watery.

Not bad but not all that good either.

Update: May 2008. Either this beer is improved or I have changed. This beer has excellent mouthfeel with nice citrus and banana taste. Good body. The watery taste and feel is gone. One of the best American Hefeweizens.

Pours a cloudy pale straw with half a finger of head that dissipates rapidly. The nose and flavor profile have the traditional yeast essence. The funky taste indicative of a hefe is also present.

Sometime I think that there are certain style that I just need to give-up on. Frankly, this is not a bad American version of a hefe – hefes just don’t do anything for me.
