Pyramid’s Hefe comes in at 5.2% alcohol by volume.
Smell: Clovey and spicy, with a touch of yeast. A hint of lemongrass sourness.
Taste: Crisp and yeasty, a bit of sourdough bread crust, some grassy bitterness that strikes me as a cross between clover and hops. A bare hint of tart and a touch of peppery-clove spice.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and almost chewy in a satisfying way. Finishes a bit dry and pretty cleanly.
Overall: It’s a pretty classic American wheat, for sure. Very well done.
On BeerAdvocate, it only scores a grade of C+. On RateBeer, it scores 2.84 out of 5 and is in their 32nd percentile. Both are fairly mediocre scores that punctuate what I was writing about at the beginning; there’s not much respect afforded this beer, which is a shame because it’s a solid brew all around.
