The key to rating this beer is on the label. It says American Hefeweizen. This is not a german hefe and should not be treated like one. It will be lighter in texture and drier. There may even be a hint of bitterness to it. These are all there. Having said that, it could still be more. The aroma is more like a wheat ale. It is a bit muted with a floral touch. The body is light and the mouthfeel is lively. The finish again is dry with a touch of hop bitterness. A good example of an Americanized hefeweizen. Refreshing.
