Reviewed a 12oz bottle that pours opaque yellow/gold with a two finger white head that quickly diminishes.
Full and smooth with some banana flavor up front and a touch of vanilla on the finish make this a very nice summer beer. I think it’s very well done.

A nice murky yelllow-golden hue with a nice whie head. Aroma had some sweet malt notes, banana, but also a nice spice profile,mainly corrainder, clove stuff like that. Flavor seemed to feature the spicyness of this brew. A akmost peppery flavor to it with a nice lemony note to balance it out. Seemed to have some grit to it which by no means was negative. A good beer.

Bubblegum, bananas, very nice and traditional german hefe flavors. Visual was as expected as well. Basically the template for how to make a german hefe in the US.

Aroma is sweet banana, wheat, and lemon.
Taste is crisp hoppy lemon-wheat banana, with a surprising amount of sourness.
Body is full, yet not cloying. A touch watery for a hefe, light on the spice, and heavy on the lemon and wheat with a banana accent.
Finish is lingering wheat sourness and banana.

A very nice hefeweizen from sierra nevada. I thought that it might have a little bit of a sour bite, but I was mistaken. It has a variety of complex fruit flavors, which sits very nicely in the mouth. Very enjoyable.

Aroma is familiar of the style. Although the banana is not as explosive as some German brands. Bread dominates the nose with the fruit being more subtle. Appearance wise it doesnt fall short of the standards. Taste is similar to the bouquet. Bread, full bodied, but soft and lacks an acidic or citrus bite. With that said still very good.

Sampled at Hyun’s bachelor party, glad to get to try this. Hazy gold, nice head, attractive. Aroma was lightly of wheat, banana, clove, faint lemon. Flavor matched, but I’m not adequately expressing the depth and complexity of the yeast at work here and how it was perfectly balanced with the grain. Perhaps just the faintest hint of floral hop to balance. Exceptionally well executed hefe, I was really, really impressed.

Bottle from BevMo. Hazy orange in color. Nice white head. Sweet yeasty aroma. Smells are all there. Rich mouthfeel. Grainy flavor. Somewhat spiced with a bit of yeastiness. Pretty good.
