Pyramid Hefeweizen ....

Tonight I will have a Hefeweizen Unfiltered Wheat Ale from Pyramid Breweries.  The twelve ounce bottle shows 5.2% ABV.  The Pyramid web site lists 18 IBUs.

This beer poured with a small to medium head, off-white in color, that dissipated quickly.  The beer color is a cloudy yellow gold; a little darker than lemonade.  The aroma is mild, with some sweetness that hints at fruit and honey.  There is a little wheat to the aroma, but it is not pronounced.  The beer is mild bodied.  I get some mild wheat in the taste, some malts and a little floral/fruit.  Smooth and pretty mild compared to most wheats on the flavor scale.  Very little aftertaste.
