A - Pours a cloudy golden-yellow with a finger of frothy white head. The heads fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lace.

S - Aroma is a mix of wheat with a bit of banana, pepper, yeast, and some lemon zest.

T - Starts off with a mix of some sweet wheat with some lemon zest and banana. Through the middle, some yeast comes through with some pepper. The finish is a mix of lemon zest, with some yeast character and a bit of wheat.

M - Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and estery finish.

D - Very drinkable. A bit watery and mild, but very crisp and refreshing.

Widmer Hefewiesen: Had a chance to try this beer at the in-laws. Hard to review beers well amist conversation of a social gathering, but here goes. Proper hefe color and head. The aroma has the expected citrus prominence. Decent flavor overall, the citrus comes through, the wheat is there, the light malt sweetness is well balanced. A good effort. Not on par with the German imports of this style, but on target. If in need of a hefe, the Widmer will do!
