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!

Poured with a good head...wait...make that a bit of lace.

A nice golden color, smell, and hoppiness of a Pilsner, except this is supposed to be a Hefeweizen, no?

No. It's not a Franziskaner or Paulaner or anything remotely like a Heffe. Hops are wrong as is the carbonation. This beer is a charlatan. The hoppy bitterness is unlike any Heffe I've ever tasted, and Widmer is a total misrepresentation of the style.

Not a bad beer, but it takes more than a bit of wheat in the wert to be a Heffe, and being a lover of this style, as well as the Belgian wittes, I wouldn't purchase this stuff again.
