Samuel Adams Hefeweizen

Looks good, tastes average. Part of a mixed six pack (2 Hefe, 2 Cream Stout, 2 Boston Ale) from Sam Adams @ 7.49, Publix Supermarkets, Villa Rica, GA, USA.

Somewhat disappointed. As many others have noted, the Hefe tag is loosely applied here, in fact it would be much better not being associated with this brew.

Excellent, creamy head, flatters to deceive. The rest of the drink is pretty watery, fairly non-descript with a distinct lack of aroma or significant yeast or malt flavors. The brew looks good with a characteristic orangey cloudiness, but after that head and the initial look, it’s largely downhill from there. Sam Adams usually does better than this, maybe they’ve stepped out too far. Know your limits!
