Serving Type: 12 oz. bottle, poured into a pilsner glass, posing as a weizen glass
This Oregonian hefeweizen from Widmer Brothers pours a hazy, unfiltered, yeast-infused orange with a yellowy glow. The large off-white head is a creamy consistency with great retention and moderate lacing. The nose is light with somewhat feint dusty wheat malts. A mild spiciness accents the sweet edge and adds a dry characteristic.
The mouthfeel is fairly velvety, but flirts with wateriness. The wheat malts are sweet and find an accompaniment of standard coriander fare. Light citrus notes illuminate the beer near the finish and mix with a clear graininess. Some lasting lemon flavor develops in the aftertaste.
Final Verdict: C+
