Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of light bread and grain, light flowers for the hops, moderate musty basement for the yeast, with hints of banana and clove. Head is small, frothy, white, with a scant amount of lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky yellow/amber. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter, and a toush sour. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery yet a litttle slick and has a soft carbonation. A little middle-of-the-roadish, but still a well crafted German Hefeweizen.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is wheat malt, toasted, slightly spicy, banana, and bubble gum. The flavor has the toasted wheat malt base with bananas and citrus fruit, clove, bubble gum that grows as it warms, and a slight smokiness. It is at the same time chewy and smooth. It’s nice to see that this is in the regular rotation. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Hazy yellow, some banana and sweetened lemon juice aroma. First sip is sweet like fresh bread, finishes dry and toasty. That leaves room in the glass to pour out the sediment from the bottle which creates increased density in the glass and aroma. Deeper in the sip as well with a creamier body, still fairly dry in the finish. playitbybeer (118) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 4, 2009
12oz bottle, pours a light a tangerine color with a white head. Smells like banana bread...I can’t wait to take a drink. Very light feel, quite refreshing. A light banana and nutty taste, I don’t usually enjoy wheat beers but this is scrumptious. This would probably be a great beer on a hot day after dealing with asshole clients all day. Surprising and delicious.

Bottle. Murky gold. Short white head. Aroma is candied fruit, bubblegum, banana, light spice and wheat. Taste is strong banana and bubblegum with lemon, wheat, yeast, light spice, candied fruit and sweet malts. Very tasty! Body is light and bubbly. Refreshing on a warm evening! Ends with more sweet malts, yeast, wheat/grains, bubblegum, banana, and light spice. Nice hefeweizen! hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2009
bottle- yum. Love this beer. Love Sierra Nevada- this beer represents everything that SN does so well- flavorful, yet understated- beers of true character- not over the top, knock you in the face elements that drown out everything else in an otherwise good beer- this has yeast driven flavor characteristics that drive the beer without overwhelming it. This was admittedly not one of my favorite styles before, but I will seek it out now. drowland (8676) - Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2009
12 oz. bottle into a pint glass
It’s clean, quality, and easy to drink. It has typical aromas and flavors, but it’s surprisingly smooth, and some would probably say it’s a bit light for the style. harbuck76 (134) - El Cajon, California, USA - AUG 2, 2009
12 oz bottle. pours a cloudy golden yellow with nice fluffy head. Aroma is grass, spice mainly cloves. Tasts is cloves hints of banana and citrus.Very refreshing and very drinkable. Probably one of the best american hefeweizens sridleyGTR (23) - Golden, Colorado, USA - AUG 2, 2009
This has to be the best American-made hefeweizen I’ve ever had. Poured into a weizen glass from a 12 oz bottle. Pale, cloudy yellow with a thick, pillowy white head, and heavy carbonation. Aromas of grass and citrus. Fizzy but watery consistency. Lemon flavor with a crisp hop finish, and some lingering bitterness. This is a well-balanced hefeweizen that compares favorably to the best German examples. I’d love to line this one up side-by-side with Weihenstephaner or Paulaner.
