'One of my favorite examples of the style. I am surprised that it hasn't been ranked any high

Color, cloudiness seem to be on par for a nice hefe, but that's where it ends. This beer had a decent aroma that got me a little excited but that's about it. Fully carbonated with lots of orange. A little too much carbonation for a hefe, and the fruity yeast esters that I was looking for are not there. An ok beer, but not what I consider a stellar hefeweizen.....

The aromas and initial flavors are there but vanish instantly. Poor representation of the style.

My first Hefeweizen. It's a cloudy light thick orange color. The taste is almost fruity, and has lots of up front flavor. It finishes with a sickly sweetness. The beer is filling and I'd only have one in a sitting. Decent, but not spectacular. Reminds me vaguely of Blue Moon.
