UPDATED: OCT 28, 2010 12 oz. bottle Pours a hazy, cloudy yellow straw color. 1/2 inch head which dissipates quickly. Slight lacing all the way down. Smell is quite citrus like, mostly lemon. Very faint smell of wheat. Taste is quite different from other wheat beers. Quite fruity and light. I enjoyed the taste of it very much. Mouthfeel is like a light beer, which may be representative of it’s rather low ABV of 4.4%. Drinkablility is quite high due to the outstanding taste and lightness of the beer. Overall, I enjoyed this quite a lot. It is another fine product of Sierra Nevada.

Poured into my weizen glass, best thing I had to a wheat glass. Color is a straw yellow. A little bit pale. Pours a light white head, medium amount of lace. Aroma is an obvious wheat smell, but it is complemented by a lemon zest. The taste is quite similiar, except the lemon is much more present in the taste. Mouthfeel is very smooth and creamy, becomes rich after swallowed. Medium level of cabonation. Overall, this is a really easy to drink beer. Very simple, nothing to complex. I would easily have this for a session beer. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-18-2008 06:44:55

"Subtle" and "mild" cover this brew pretty well. Pours a pale yellow with a quickly-fading white bubbly head. Nose is light wheat and a touch of soft floral aromas. Flavor is equally subtle with a bitterness that seems to come equally from hops (amarillo?) and just a bit of funkiness from something in the brewing process. A bit watery, but not bad.

Pours pale gold in the glass. Nose and taste is mild wheats and hops. I need to re rate this. It probably should be a 3.0 not a 4.0. Rated 3/16/2000

SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2010
A- Nearly transparent straw yellow body with giant foamy white head. Great head retention and leaves behind plenty of lacing in the glass. Pretty clear for an unfiltered wheat beer. S- Solid grainy smell of medium potency. T- light taste of wheat and grain malt with hints of hops. Finish is rather dry leaving nothing on the palate. P- very thin and somewhat watery. Medium carbonation. O- Unoffensive summer thats pretty drinkable. Taste is light and mouthfeel is somewhat watery. This beer is very drinkable and somewhat enjoyable but doesn’t have much to offer.

brokensail (10547) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 15, 2010
A: The pour is a slightly cloudy light golden orange color with a finger’s worth of white foam which dissipates into a thin layer and leaves a bit of lacing. S: The nose is somewhat fruity and sweet with some mild hop notes present as well. T: The flavor has a moderate bitterness with a fruity and citrusy quality that’s refreshing. Overall, though, the flavor is not very intense. M: The beer has a nice crisp carbonation but the body is a bit thin. D: Definitely an easy drinking beer, and actually better than most American wheat ales, but still not one I’d look for as a regular beer.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Pours clear pale golden yellow witha frothy white head. Aroma of wheat and pear. Taste is murky wheat and apple. Thin bodied, medium high carbonation. Good move making the Kellerweis which is by far a superior beer.

Not what I was expecting. Pours extremely clear for being ’unfiltered’. Mild in hops, wheat is muted. I have tasted better wheats.

Pinball (10686) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2010
35cl bottle at home. clear yellow, smooth offwhite creamy head. hoppy and citrus candy and yellow fruity aroma.wheat, faint alc. flavor is wheat, faint ctrus, faint yellow fuits, not unlike what’s in a belgian blonde, faint spices. the complete flavor profile is not mild or faint, but medium strong. it is a little strange for a weissbier, but it is rather tasty once you get around the strangeness.
