Widmer Brothers Hefeweizen

Now here is a Hefeweizen hailing from Oregon. Portland Or is a big brewing mecca as is the areas around Portland. This Hefeweizen or wheat beer came to be when my father, great man that he is, went to Portland for a meeting. I knew that Portland is a great beer city. He got this growler at the airport, how neat is that. Thank you dad! A growler is either 1/2 gallons to 1 gallon and is filled from the tap and caped with a screw top. Charlotte Douglas Airport, you should read this again carefully(HINT HINT). Yes I kept this growler, it was just to cool to throw away. This hefeweizen is 4.9 abv Now this beer pours a cloudy orange color with a neat white head. Look almost like an orange fruit drink, very inviting. It has a nice wheat aroma with a very very small malty scent. When you taste this you get a good wheat taste that fades kind of quickly and then there is a faint malt taste, but this is a crisp taste overall. I like this ones taste but I would say its average and could be a little better. The aftertaste is wheaty as well but not as present as on the first taste, but it finishes clean and crisp. This is a good drinkable hefeweizen, that is good but not blow your mind good, just good. This is when you just want a good average beer. This could be better, but I don't mind that, I like would like it either way. Not overly done or to pourly done, just good and average for that average kinda day. Cheers! Please drink responsibly!
