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.

This 12oz bottle was bottled on 30th December 2014 and poured into a Duvel tulip glass. The beer poured a very hazy straw gold colour with two finger white head that dissipated quickly leaving behind thin but nice lacing. There were earthy wheaty aromas with orange, banana and cloves poking through. Taste was mainly of ripe banana and bready wheaty malts with hints of citrus and a touch of hoppiness at the end. It was light bodied with medium carbonation and a dry finish. Overall this isn’t the best hefe that I’ve tried, but its certainly up there and a good example of one. Its very easy to drink and I would definitely consider this during the hot summers.

Hazy yellow beer, small white head. Yeasty nose with sweetness, banana and clove. Flavor is wheaty, yeasty, fruity notes with banana dominating. Speaking of dominating, the sweetness. Finishes dry with wheat and banana. Too sweet for me.

As far as hefes go, this one is near the top of my list. Typical hef aromas, bread, banana, yeast on the nose. Caries over to the taste with a good dose of malt character, biscuit, etc.

Flaska från @majsvalling, tack! Grumlig gul vätska med stort vitt skum som lägger sig snabbare än man öppnar RateBeer. Doftar skumbanan och svagt jästigt. Mild Hefeweizen, trevlig.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy yellow color with little foam. The smell resembles of a Belgian witbeer with lots of yeast. The taste is a little salty sourness with fruity notes. A nice mixture of wheat- and witbeer, but nothing really sensational. A solid great beer, not much more.
