I'm not a big Hefeweizen fan, but this is a nice wheat beer. A nice summer brew.

On draught at Buffalo wild wings.
Cloudy orange with a lot of foam. Decent lacing.
Man is that nose light. Wheat, only hints of it really. As far as spices and fruits go, I don't get any. Same goes for the taste. This is a Wheat ale not a Hefeweizen.

355ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

Hazy golden orange color with a finger of white foam that dissipates to nothing, there is no lacing or anything left except the visible fizzy carbonation.

Floral and sweet malt in a nose, also mild banana and subtle clove along with some spice from yeast. There is some suggestion of wheat and grain too.

The taste is very sweet from wheat and bread malt also floral like in the aroma. Some yeast with its clove spice and mild fruitiness. No hop. No bitterness.

Medium body with fizzy and lively mouthfeel from its high carbonation, the feeling is crisp and quite refreshing with a dry finish.

Not a familiar face for Hefeweizen. Just okay for some refreshing.

Sometimes I'm amazed by the amount of beers I've had, I dunno, 100 times or more that I haven't ever written a beer review for. Well, 2017, Pyramid Hefeweizen, here you go. Before there was Blue Moon, Pyramid seemed to have a good amount of the market share for craft beers.

Pours dull cloudy yellow with a full 1" of white head on it. Pretty classic look I would say. Aroma of wheat, mild Belgian banana yeast. Pretty clean compared to more traditional hefe yeasts.

Taste is mild, imparts wheat, mild clove, stays away from the heavy banana and band aid notes. Not dry or phenolic. somewhere between an American wheat and a hefeweizen, this beer lies in that middle ground. Easy to drink, a throwback to the late 80s and 90s.

Backlog. 12 oz bottle. Smells of wheat, lemons, Granny Smith apples. Disappointing head and below average hazy hue when compared to its German counterparts. Flavor is very American rather than German. Tastes of wheat--like it should--and lemons (I did not put a lemon wedge in it, ya wankers). This beer was much better straight out of the bottle.

Look: Amber with a white foamy head that dissipated after a minute or so and even though the beer was hazy I could see the fast-rising bubbles.

Smell: The first thing I notice is a sweet aroma, maybe a little vanilla, then behind it I get the citrus and bready smells.

Taste: I a nice citrus flavor and a sweet banana flavor with a very minor bitterness but over all it is very plain in flavor.

Feel: The beer leaves a sticky feeling followed by a minor dryness.

Pours a murky orange color with a small white head. Aromas and flavors are musty, semi-fruity, and grain. Low carbonation and a poor mouthfeel, not as creamy as it should be. Paired with a breakfast burrito decently.
