Widmer, another Hefeweizen i've had on tap, trying it in the bottle for the first time.

A: Excellent golden amber color with a fingers worth of head. Dissipates to light lacing around the edges with patches of lace all around.

S: Wheats and grain on the nose with a bit of citrus. Catching some bready yeast scents as well towards the end but they are very faint.

T: Nice wheat and corn flavoring. Can taste the maltyness and grain as you could catch with the nose earlier. Citrus flavors are def. noticeable but the usual spice notes are very very faint towards the end.

M: Light carbonation works well with the flavors. Smooth and creamy feeling left on the palette on the aftertaste.

O: Not bad a bad Hefe, but i'm used to more fruit flavors and spice. This is a great beer for those looking to get into this style of beer. Much better had on tap though.

Poured this American Pale Wheat Ale from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a pale amber color, produced a nice white head, average retention and lacing. The aroma of this ale consists of bread, fruity yeast. Light in body, this wheat beer has a foundation of grain and bread. There is some hop bittering and it finishes dry. Overall, I was only mildly impressed with this beer- It gets a lot of buzz about being one of the founding craft beers- I was expecting a lot more. BTW...This is not a Hefeweizen..Geez. Prost!
