"Ever since Widmer introduced Hefeweizen to America in 1986, ours has been the standard by which all other Hefeweizens are judged." (Widmer brewery website)
Ok, so I shall review it as a Hefe-Weizen, and not as an American wheat. Perfectly fair.
Between straw and sunset orange in color, very hazy of course. Thick webby head retains well.
Nose is disappointing. It's simply weak, with no prominent or enticing aromas. I double checked that my bottle is fresh. Hmmm.
Is this the same Widmer as from a few years ago? I clearly remember this beer having a highyl (over?) carbonated character with almost orange juicy flavors. Now it's one of the most "macro" of all wheats I've ever tried - very little of the usual banana clove for the style. Very boring. Nothing good to say, because there's nothing worth talking about in this beer.
Finish is short and slightly tart.
