From a can. A gift from a friend who was down South recently. Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy golden color. A nice creamy thick off-white foam head that left good sticky lacing.

Smell: Sweet, yeasty and wheat are the main aroma profiles, just a hint of fruit.

Taste: Very solid and straight-up wheat and yeast flavors. A nice sweet a creamy beer with some nice fruit and spice from the yeast. A very nice light wheat beer flavor. The yeast isn't as banana-clove forward as a German Hefeweizen, but it's close enough for an American wheat beer.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy. Slick and sweet. Just like a good wheat beer should be.

Overall: A good and simple American wheat beer done well. A lot here to like and nothing to dislike. I would drink this again, and would love to try it fresh on tap.

The Wash Out wheat is decent.....easy to drink....a fun in the sun type beverage. It poured a clear golden for me....when I washed the can out....there was massive sediment.....so I am guessing it probably pours hazy for most....it had white head and not much lace. The scent carried a hint of biscuit and lemon. The taste carried good citrus. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with decent carbonation. Overall it was fine.

This is a fantastic Hefeweizen, It was served in a Pint Glass and had a perfect dark golden color and a strong clean aroma. the first sip matched the last one and that can be a hard trick for many beers to pull off. Hefeweizen is one of my favorite styles of brew and I have sampled many across Europe in my military days and this would compete with the best. I would go out of the way to pick up some if it was available.

I'm not a wheat fan but I picked up a sixer for a day on Sullivan's Island and it went very well with a hot day and a lazy surf. Not a ton of yeasty Flavors like clove or peppercorn but more a bubblegum and wheat malt. Very light feel but not watery, I drank through all six with very little damage and a good time.

Can poured into a weizen glass.

4.0 A: Moderate hazed golden color. One and a half fingers of frothy/creamy off-white head. Retention is about average and a half finger of lacing is left.

3.75 S: Neutral wheat and peppery spiciness. Wildflower herbalness and a dry woodiness - a bit like a saison in this regard. Lemon zest to round it out.

3.75 T: Pretty earthy for a wheat beer. Hops also add a mild grassiness and a slight citrus. Neutral wheat, on the drier side. Again there's some herbalness and woodiness.

3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Carbonation is a bit bity rather than spritzy. Could also use more creaminess.

3.75 D: Solid APWA overall. Interesting flavor profile that I don't see too often in the style.
