A gold yellow, pour the yeast in and it's straight thick cloudy gold, thin head
Smell is a clean banana ish malt
Without the yeast the taste was much more sharp and vinegary, with yeast this seems like nothing but well rounded malt. Very crushable, one of the first crafts I liked so I may be biased here.

[Original rating 2012-08-17] Cloudy gold/brown with a thin white head. Aroma is wheat, yeast. Taste is pretty much the same, not really interesting.

I can understand the criticisms that this beer receives, but I think it works well for what it is, which is a sessionable, somewhat sweet, somewhat tangy wheat beer. It doesn't come across as a true hefeweizen, as others have said, but that doesn't hurt it for me. The flavor is certainly one-note, but it's a flavor that I really like. This is probably my go-to Utah 4% session beer when I want something light, mild, and somewhat sweet.

First had at Molly Green's, Brighton, Utah, on draft into into tumbler, with orange slice (removed). Golden Spike Hefeweizen is a solid entry in the wheat ale category.
