The standard by which all other wheat beers are judged. Our deliciously deranged American-Style Hefeweizen is an award winning take on this Bavarian classic. This refreshingly unfiltered wheat ale delivers a distinctively smooth flavor worth sharing with friends.
Pyramid Hef pours a beautiful orangeish-copper color, with a one finger head. The head quickly dissipates and leaves practically no lacing. Carbonation and sediments can barely be seen when held to the light.
The nose of this beer is very mild, like a light wheat beer. The usual flavors are present: orange, citrus, etc. but they are extremely weak.
Pyramid Hefeweizen is a rather unimpressive wheat beer. The flavor is just what you would expect from the nose: mild and rather uneventful. The mouthfeel is a little sticky and has some bite to it. Weird.
Overall, I’m not that impressed with Pyramid Hefeweizen. With so many other great hefs and wheat beers on the market, I find it hard to imagine that I’ll pick this one up again.
Overall: 4 out of 10
As a WHEAT BEER: 3.5 out of 10
