From a bottle poured a hazy straw color with a fair amount of head. Nice light sweet fruity malty flavor with a quick finish. Very drinkable.

jazzed to try this.. .. seems traditional .. . pours with a creamy head .. . straw haze .. . decent mouthfeel .. . decent stuff but it didn’t quite mesh well with all the other stuff going on .. . would love to try this on tap! .. . I like how a Duck’s opinion of me severely depends on whether I may or may not have bread!

bottle... pours a deep hazy golden with a nice white head... rock solid hefeweizen... big thanks to Sierra Nevada for crafting such a great beer in this style.... I’m typically not a big hefeweizen fan, but this one has got some serious character... big banana, malt driven, citrus laced aroma... solid body with some spice and light fruit notes... sweet, slightly bitter with a touch of yeast... excellent and very enjoyable after work....

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a hazy yellow-gold with a medium sized off-white head and good lasting time. Malty aroma with some banana and yeasty notes. Light citrusy lemon as well. Wheaty lemon flavor with some clove spice in the middle and finish. Heavier than I thought it would be but I drank the whole six pack anyway.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy apricot pour with modest white head. Aroma is citrus, nectar and light sugary fruit with banana-clove and apricot. Flavor is wheat malt with some spicy notes and a strong sugary backbone of apricot and banana. Citrus comes through near the finish but doesn’t act to overpower- just provides a nice balancing element. Palate is superb for the style, with a clean dry finihsh. A great example of the style- very well done.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy light orange with a small, foamy white head. Aroma of clove, banana, wheat. Typical hefe but not overly spiced. Light and a touch fruity. Flavor is sweet initially, light and fruity, with a tangy spiciness and citrus. Top notch hefe indeed.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great golden pour with fluffy white head. Nice clove and banana to smell, some green apples as well. A metallic woody tinge is there. The body is smooth and buttery nice mouthfeel here and easy to drink. The flavor is mouth coating and layered. A nice flavor profile here with obvious spiced fruit notes but also some quiet toasted bits and pieces, light sugar, vanilla and oak. Very tasty.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beer pours out of the bottle a golden/orange with a very tall, frothy, white head that leaves a ton of lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is a strong wheat note, a light clove spiciness with some light banana esters and finishes with a strong yeasty note. Flavor has a clove bit at first that quickly fades into a cinnamon spiciness, middle has a heavy yeastiness with a banana fruitiness following it up and melding with the residual spice flavors until the end. Mouth feel is almost spot on, only a tad bit light on the yeast. Overall, as with all of Sierra’s offerings, a very good example of the style.
