A cloudy golden beer with a nice head & a lot of carbonation. The aroma had banana as did the taste with some bready qualities that was a little watery in the finish. A refresher.

Pours a cloudy orange color with a thick off-white head. Spicy aroma with hints of banana, clove, and some wheat. Strong taste of banana. With a bitter aftertaste and some hints of hops and some yeast. It is a pretty good Hefeweizen overall.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a cloudy pale orange-yellow color with an inch thick, fluffy off-white head that slowly receded and left some spotty lacing. Moderately spicy aroma with hints of clove, nutmeg, and wheat paired with some ripe banana, faint orange peel, light bubble gum, and some soft doughy yeast. Smooth, moderately crispy entry with some light wheat and a bit of orange leads into a moderately spicy middle with hints of clove and banana that lead into a lightly bitter finish with some soft hints of grassy hops and a faint yeastiness. Moderate carbonation and decent mouth feel. Overall, it’s a decent hefe that you can buy in 6 packs. It shows some promise on the nose, but the flavor doesn’t quite hold up its end of the bargain. Either way, it’s drinkable and enjoyable.

Admittedly, I’m not a huge fan of wheat beers, but this one was a pleasant surprise. And who better for it to come from than Sierra Nevada? It had a really deep flavor with the characteristic wheat aftertaste. It was very enjoyable.

Flaske: Flot orange uklar øl med et kæmpe skumhoved. Dejlig klassisk duft af banan og hvede. Smagen er også banan med et overraskende velhumlet bid. Virkelig en dejlig hefe. Super.

Bottle at Flying Saucer, Houston.
Pours an average thin yellow*orange with a semi-weak aroma of flat vlove and ripe banana. Flavor is lemony banana and clove, with a hint of sweet grass in the finish. Tingly on the tongue. Not bad but not memorable.

Poured cloudy, lemony color with 1.5 finger head. Great smell, banana and clove...smells just like a good hefe. Taste is like the nose, nice banana and clove flavor, with the hops not really doing much except their job, just balancing everything out, finish starts a bit sweet, but dries out a bit. Smooth, almost creamy, full mouthfeel, that is really nice.
Overall this is a really good hefe, and for the price, I could see me picking this up over most of the others out there.
