This brew while very drinkable was not impressive. I like my wheats cloudy and this almost looked like a pils. I can't commnet much on the aroma due to sinuses, but there didn't apear to be much of one. The taste was smooth and not hoppy enough for this BA. It didn't leave a bad aftertaste, but it is drinkable. If you are looking for a hefe their are so many more that are much better.......CHEERS

Hazy pale yellow, respectable fine-bubbled head. Aroma is citrusy -- maybe, more subdued than I expected but with some off notes, almost sulfurous. Flavor is rough and grainy, yeasty. Artificial lemon candy. Some might find this refreshing, but it emphasizes aspects of Wheats that put me off. Mouthfeel is decent, especially at the front. Not a favorite...

This is a horrible beer and deserves a rating below 1 for most of these categories...

Starts off with a nasty cheap, rotten egg smell that I have come to associate with all Glueks beers....it's not old...it's just their smell....must be their yeast strain...LOL...Taste has ZERO hefe weizen characteristics....put this in a blind taste test with the best tasters in the world and they would never guess it to be a Hefe or even a wheat beer at all....taste is sourish...not a good sour either...other than that there isn't much in the way of flavor at all....body is relatively thin...just a bad beer...stay away...
