look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: It pours a hazy copper with a rocky head around two fingers thick.

Aroma: Grain, lemon zest, light breadiness with some citrus hop.

Taste: A fairly crisp mouthfeel to start. Light citrus in the front, lemon, touch of grain wisps of banana. Touch of clove and a light dry finish.

Notes: Well it's drinkable overall and the dry finish is a nice plus. Cheers.

Poured from a bottle into a Weizen glass.

A – A hazy straw yellow with a one-finger white head of soapy looking foam. Decent amount of patchy lacing.

S – Doughy malts, a little citrus zest, yeast and subdued hops. Overall aroma is “mild”.

T – Follows the nose, with cereal-like malt grain forward, followed by some bland lemon citrus, and ending with slight hop bitterness. Getting just a slight nuttyness from the grain. Honestly, resembles a pale more than a Hefe. Refreshing enough, but also kind of bland.

M – Light-to-medium bodied and a moderate level of carbonation.

O – A ho-hum brew that brings nothing memorable to the table. Quality ingredients and presentation, but overall just way to subdued for my tastes.

Poured from a 12 oz twist-off bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint.

A - A medium pour yields about a finger of fizzy white head. It retains for a while, but is mostly held up by the etching in the glass. Body is yellow golden in color with only a slight haziness. Lacing is nonexistent.

S - Smells of sour wheat and grass.

T - As with the nose, this hefeweizen is a little too sour up front, with not a lot of character to back it up. There is a mild pepperyness in the finish.

M - Light bodied and thankfully not overcarbonated.

O - An average wheat ale. I would compare it to a blue moon with just a little more wheat flavor.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a hazy golden yellow with a 2 finger head, decent retention, and a resulting thin lace.

Smell - Smells of wheat, lemon and grass.

Taste - Follows the nose. Lots of wheat and lemon. Finish is subtly bitter and semi-dry.

Mouthfeel - Light body, with a sharp, crisp bite.

Overall - Not a hefewiezen as the name suggests, but a decent wheat beer nonetheless.

Had on tap at an Irish place in Buffalo with lunch (Beef on Weck) before BRUUUCE on 4-13-12. (Reviewed from notes)

A-Nice, cloudy with decent head

S-Pretty typical Hefe

T-Good, nicely balanced

M-A little bit chewy for my taste

O-Good, now that Rochester's North American Brewery has acquired Pyramid, I'm sure we'll be seeing more of their offerings, and that's a good thing

Pours a glowing pale gold, hazy with substantial head. The nose is all cereal, banana and sweet cream. Very approachable. Those cereal bits really come through on the tongue. This beer certainly isn't anything to write home about but it does its job and it drinks super easy. I can see myself buying a sixer of this when bonfire season rolls around.
