Sixer, bottled on 9/20/06 so it's relatively fresh. I'm a bit shocked at some of the higher ratings because this is a piss poor hefe, even from my expectations coming from an American Brewer. Light aroma of dry wheat, no clove, banana, or citrus notes of any kind. The first bottle I poured gingerly down an angled glass because a hefe usually foams like mad if you're not cautious. This one however I soon learned I had to force straight down the middle "glugging" it if you will just to get a respectable head. Nice color, no lacing. I swirled the "yeast" like one should and was rewarded with floaties and chunks...no thanks. Crisp and somewhat refreshing, it's not creamy as it needs to be. Flavor is essentially malt and wheat, no more no less. This one should be ashamed to call itself a hefe, in fact it's not even a very good example of an American Wheat and that's hard to accomplish.
