Very good for a Hefe. Enjoying this at the old Burbank, CA airport. They have this hole in the wall restaurant with good draft beers.

Nothing fancy, but great for an easily accessible Hefeweissen in the Northwest. It tides me over if the local shop hasn't restocked their Fransiskaner and Paulaner.

This is a full wheat lager not a Hefeweizen. "Original", my ass.

Quite a light version of a classic hefe. That doesn't make it bad, just a pale version of a classic. Looks good, cloudy yellow and big huge very white head. Much more wheat in the aroma than any spice, clove or banana. Kinda' dry. "An Am. Hefe" kinda' sums it up. Easy drinking, for sure.

12 ounce bottle poured into pint glass

A: Pours a hazy dull orange color with a white head, no retention, slight lacing, looks under carbonated.

A: Subtle notes of wheat, hay, honey, banana, and spice, touch of citrus like oranges as well.

T: Like the nose, faint notes of wheat, citrus, spice, lemon, aftertaste is of lemon and wheat malt, very smooth and easy to drink.

M: Light bodied with a crisp finish, leaves a spice, citrus mouthfeel.

O: This is better than I expected but not as good as the few other hefeweizens I've tasted. This one has more citrus notes but I would not call it hoppy.
