Haywire Hefeweizen

Another review from the draft folder. Time to let it be free!

A month or so ago I was drinking Haywire Hefeweizen brewed by Pyramid Breweries in Seattle, Washington; Berkeley, California; and Portland, Oregon. This came from my buddy in El Paso. Drink by 11/18/2009 for the record which is strange because it wasn't even purchased until the middle of December, 2009. Anyway, I'll make sure he avoids that retailer in the future. The label says, "Life is what you pour into it." I agree!

Wheat aroma, mostly, with a light citrus background. Not too powerful at all. The flavors start out similarly with wheat and citrus, mostly orange. There are some bready flavors too. This has a band aid doctor's office type flavor I can't quite describe any other way. It's not horrible but is strangely present. Overly carbonated by quite a bit, which dominates an otherwise simple and decent beer. Light body and dry finish. I'll pass on this beer!
