A: Average hefeweizen appearance, on the minimal carbonation side. Nothing too unusual.
S: Very light smell. Almost nothing there but a bit of citrus. Really doesn't smell like beer.
T: Same story as with the smell. Almost no flavor, and with none of the typical hefe bite. This is a truly bad beer--it drinks almost like a light beer, so watery that it is unpleasant.
M: Delivers on the minimal carbonation observed after the pour. Feels flat, which is especially damning for such a tasteless beer. Yuck.
D: Not hard to drink, but not especially pleasant to do so either.
I was very unimpressed with this beer. Generally Widmer does a solid if not overly inspired job, but this is just plain boring and unpleasant. They make a variety pack that is a good cheap buy for a big group, but the prospect of ending up with a bunch of the hefeweizen might make me think twice about stocking up.
