Widmer Brothers Brewing Hefe

I have review this beer before, cause I know you say this one seem familiar. Your right, it is. Back in March of 2012, the 3rd to be exact, I reviewed Widmer Brother Brewing Hefe, 4.9% ABV, but that was in draft form and this is bottled version. Widmer Brothers Brewing in Portland Oregon has been doing the job of brewing beer since 1984, and Hefe is there original flagship beer. Hefe pours a slightly cloudy gold color with a two and half finger white head that slowly fades away into not much lacing. The aroma is crisp with touches of banana and slight citrus and some floral notes. Taste on Hefe is different than most hefe’s that I’ve had, and I’ve had a lot, it’s one of my favorite styles. There is a crisp lager or pilsner flavor to it with a very faint banana notes with slight citrus flavors. The mouth feel is light somewhat refreshing, and with a nice smooth yet clean finish. After taste is not much of anything nor does it add anything to the whole beer, just the taste coming to an end or a stopping point. Still get a faint banana flavor with slight citrus. Widmer Brothers Brewing Hefe isn’t bad it’s a B-. Better fresh on draft than in the bottle in my opinion. This bottled Hefe is more like a lager or Pilsner where as the draft is more like what you’d expect a Hefe to be. Bottled Hefe needs to go to Germany and learn how Hefe’s really are. Then come back to us all educated and grown up. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
