Weizen No. 1

In 1985, the Widmer Brothers brewed their first wheat beer.  No, it wasn’t Hefeweizen, that was still a year off. The original Weizen was filtered, clear — a style rarely seen today, but popular in Germany.

Weizen really shows off it’s German roots. It has a bit of the banana and clove aroma you’ll find in a native Weizen, though in smaller proportions. There are no hop flavors to speak of, just a bit of a bitterness. The wheat lends a whole grain flavor. And you don’t want to sully it with a lemon wedge.

In the early days, Widmer Bros. Brewing took all their inspiration from Germany, from the beer styles they brewed to the brewpub they opened in 1994, the Widmer Gasthaus and Pub. Gasthaus is German for guest house. After their recent renovation the Gasthaus name was scrubbed. It is now the Widmer Pub.

The name change is indicative of a larger shift in Widmer’s beers. Hefeweizen is still the core brand and is sold across the country via their Craft Beer Alliance distrubution chain, but in recent years the brand has plateaued. Instead of crumbling, Widmer has expanded and left their German roots behind. They produce a rotating IPA series, have expanded into barrel aging, and even seriously dabble in sour beers.

They may not be a German style brewery any longer, but Widmer Brothers Brewing is still an Oregon staple.

New Belgium “Spring Blonde”

82 B-


This seasonal Belgian-style Pale Ale (otherwise known as the Blonde or Golden Ale) is on rotation in the spring. I’d like to thank Keith Siggins of Colorado for his thoughtful donation of this bottle. Hoppy aromatics delve into bright lemon zest, grass, and fruits such as pear or apple. Malts come across like honey and bread, then follow with a dash of yeasty black pepper.


The palate begins with semi-sweet malts flavored like cereal grains, sourdough or biscuits. Hops step into the middle with an earthy, grassy approach that centers around mild bitterness. A sour upswing rises toward lemon, closing with a faint hint of spice. Mouthfeel is medium-to-light bodied, delivering smooth carbonation that leads into a dry departure. I’m disappointed to find this tastes worse as it warms.


New Belgium probably made a wise decision here, because the masses still want a drinkable ale. The careful balance of bitter and sweet is agreeable, and the mouthfeel is perfectly suited for spring. While I can recall a list of true Belgian counterparts that would certainly blow this out of the water, I must remind myself that this is an American rendition designed to carry more hop character, and is thus more likely to appease the palate of our typical, stateside craft drinker. Though I am not at all impressed, this is pretty good, and since I feel it would agree with most, I think its at least worth trying. However, it is unlikely that I will return.
