Today I was over at Sine’s Irish Pub in Pentagon Row (Arlington) for a military promotion ceremony and party. I was also heading over to a party at a friend’s house and what beer did they both have on tap? The Widmer Hefewizen. I thought it only appropriate to roll in, sample some at both locations, and provide my feedback.
I like this Hefe. It has all of the characteristics you expect from a nice German-style wheat beer — it hit the spot considering it was nice and warm today. Is it the greatest Hefe? No. Is it drinkable + affordable. Yes. Of course, if you are going to drink a Hefeweizen … my opinion is to go with the experts … the Germans. But, if this is what’s available and you are craving a Weizen … it works!
Oh, and I was happy to see the tap lines at Sine’s were clean! Yes!
