Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.pours a hazy golden color with a two finger head that leaves some decent lacing. Aroma was of yeast and cloves with faint hints of banana. This beer is very complex with flavors with a velvety smooth full palate taste of yeast some hints of clove and a refreshing finish with banana on the back end ....this is one of my all time favorite heffeweizen’s another great brew from sierra Nevada....cheers

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a beautiful hazy orangish gold with a frothy white head. Aroma of wheat, cloves, bananas in a delicate balance with a hint of sourness in the background. Taste is spicy wheat, cloves phenols and banana esthers, light bubblegum and a complex sourness from the wheat. Excellent American hefeweizen!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours a murky gold with a decent white whispy lacing head. Aroma is slight hay and good skunk. Tastes bright, full, with a hint of clove or coriander. The spice is still present in the pleasant lingering finish. I really like this beer.

Great yeast aroma. Creamy banana dominates with some clove, but overall not a bitey yeast. Full body. Refreshing light citrus. Raw grain. Nicely balanced, calm and well executed. Drinkable and approachable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lustrous golden yellow. Quickly dissipating head. Wonderful scents of banana, yeast, marshmallows, and mild citrus. Slightly lighter and more refreshing than a stereotypical hefe. Incredible flavour. Banana dominates, but a smooth combination of yeast, cream, and citrus is present as well. Mildly hoppy finish. Wonderfully flavourful easy drinking hefe.

Lively, hazy yellow beer with a frothy head with a floral banana smell to it. Flavour has a heavy dose of banana in there too. Sweet and bitter is well-balanced. It’s not anything you wouldn’t expect from the style but it’s mellow, very drinkable and very well done.

Bottle. Aroma distinctive weizeny clove, spiciness, lemony. Hazy yellow colour. Taste is also rather at the spicy-clove-lemony side, a bit drier and thinner than some other weizens, with a very light soury-spicy twist in flavour. Really good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 0,355l bottle, BBD: 17/02/15 Pours deep hazy straw to golden liquid, medium white frothy head, fell down quickly, Aroma: banana, floral, wheat, lemon, Taste: medium sweet, light bitter, light to medium sour, wheat, banana, sweet notes, clove, lemon, Palate: light to medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, long sweet fruity finish, Overall: very surprising interpretation of the original german hefeweizen style, lighter body, lower carbonation, after banana dominates other fruity and floral notes typique for west coast craft breweries, very drinkable piece. Pity of the absent head - fell down quickly and perhaps even more floral notes in the taste.
