UFO Hefeweizen is an American unfiltered wheat beer. Perhaps UFO’s initial sensory perception is also its most prominent: a cloudy golden color and a dense, frothy head. The yeast, which has not been filtered out, accounts for the cloudiness of UFO. Wheat malt tends to create a larger head than barley malt, the cereal grain most often used in brewing. When served in a traditional wheat beer glass with a lemon, UFO presents an appealing and distinctive visual image.

The aroma has a faint but clear citrus-like character. This is produced by the special yeast and accounts for the Bavarian tradition of serving hefeweizens with a lemon. The lemon accentuates the yeast’s fruity, tart fragrance. UFO has a soft mouthfeel and a refreshing, light body. The wheat malts and subtle hopping give the beer a mild, delicate flavor. UFO has a clean finish. Unlike some imported hefeweizens, UFO does not have the spicy, tropical flavors typical of European-brewed style.

Fan of the label. This one is mediocre.

A: golden yellow with a small head

S. Faint almost non-existent banana. Hardly any wheat or yeast flavor.

T: very light bodied Hef. Sorta watered down taste.

M: slightly bitter, light, watery. Nothing stands out about this beer.

O: Yeah, I'd drink again on a hot, summer, Texas day. I wouldn't turn it down but, I probably wouldn't buy it. It drinks very fast due to the lack of flavors. Blue Moon has more of a wheat taste.
