My favorite american wheat. Great floral and hoppy nose with a bready smell. Has a tangy citrusy type flavor - the use of imported french strissel spalt hops is very evident. This is unlike many american wheat beers I have tried...in that it has a great hop profile yet doesn't drown out the wheat flavor.

Light but good nevertheless; the wheat/yeast is very well balanced against the hops, which I think are Cascade but aren't too aggressive. Very refreshing, and excellent if you're not expecting a hefeweizen.

I really enjoyed this beer on regret only buying one bottle of it on my first trip. Of the wheat beers I have tried I would have to say this was the best to date. Very flavorful and appealing to the palate. Can't wait to pick up some more. Of course, I am partial to Sierra Nevada as their Pale Ale is what turned me on to beer tasting in the first place.

Not really a hefe-weizen in the strict sense of the word, it's more of a slightly bitter wheat ale.. Not really hoppy but without the sweet flavors of german or belgian whites.. Nonetheless, it has a great yeasty taste and is very refreshing. One of my favorites from SN. Superb cloudy golden color.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2008 Very solid wheat brew in my opinion. To be honest, one of my favorite wheat ales. Pours a cloudy amber due to it being unfiltered and has a nice white head. Has a crisp, wholesome flavor to it. Delicious balance of malts and hops with a truly refreshing character to it. Wonderful brew from sierra nevada, definitely worth giving a try.

Wowwee! Nice pour, thick rich head that lasts!Bigger nose than other wheats-hoppier, fruitier. Hazy golden brew. Full of flavor and zing on the tongue, yet virtually no aftertaste. I taste wheat, peach, malt, nicely hopped. This is now at the top of my list. Definately a beer that rocked my world. A winner!

Well first of all Sierra Nevada can't really make a bad beer. This is a good representation of a wheat and definitely true to the name. Especially nice in hot weather, preferable outdoors
