Widmer Hefe

This 4.9% ABV American-style hefeweizen is from Widmer Brothers Brewing of Portland, Oregon. 

The beer pours honey golden to apricot in color, a bit hazy. There is nearly an inch of pure white foam. The aroma is toasted wheat, lemony, lightly yeasted. The taste follows the aromas, with a strong toasted wheat that is moderated by some light lemony tang and earthy yeast. It finishes dry with light floral bitterness. It drinks easy with a crisp and refreshing carbonation. If you are looking for a German-style hefe with banana and clove, look elsewhere. If you want a refreshing American style wheat beer, pull up a bar stool.
