Notes/Commercial Description:
What’s Las Vegas without a little vice? Our traditional German Hefeweizen, Sin City Weisse, is an unfiltered, straw-colored wheat beer with a low hop profile that features a distinct clove aroma and citrus undertones. Originally a summer brew at 4.5% alcohol by volume, it’s a perfect fit for our Las Vegas climate.

Single finger head with nice lacing on a murky dull golden body. Aroma is very strong with tropical fruits mostly including banana, tangerine and pineapple. Nothing else really, some breads and wheat. Flavor is fairly wheat and bread heavy fr what the aroma forbodes with the fruit coming mostly in the finish with mosty tangerine. Light to medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Not too bad actually. Flavorful, about as good as the style can be I guess.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served on tap at Sin City Brewing (Venetian) in Las Vegas, NV

A: Pours a cloudy light golden orange in color. The beer has a half finger tall white head that reduces to a thin film over the entire surface and a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Significant lacing is observed.

S: Smell is dominated by the banana + clove and orange citrus notes.

T: The beer is dominated by the banana + clove flavors that I would expect for the style with a healthy amount of orange citrus present as well. There are some light wheat notes and the flavor is quite pleasant.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Very easy to drink, very refreshing, and definitely sessionable. The beer seems really well suited for the Las Vegas climate and definitely one to have while visiting.

Served on-draught into a plastic cup at the Miracle Mile location. Reviewed from notes. Expectations were low.

A: Pours a one finger head of fair cream, decent thickness, and good retention. Colour is a hazy pale copper.

Sm: Heavy citrus ester hops and lots of orange peel. Wheat. A moderately strong aroma.

T: Orange citrus ester hops over a simple wheat foundation. Very simple, but enjoyable and pleasant nonetheless. I wouldn't call it refreshing. Built and balanced in an average fashion.

Mf: Sharp, coarse, and wet. A bit too thick.

Dr: Drinkable but nothing special. I wouldn't have it again - especially at this price.

Purchased on tap at location in Caesars Palace.. or.. Bellagio? or.. Venician..? I don't remember.. they all run together.. poured into see through plastic cup

Pours nice and hazy as it should with moderate head. Smells largely of clove not so much on the banana which is okay. Taste follows well, wheaty and chewy almost with a little burn on the end.

Overall this is actually a great beer. I'd buy it again and have a stroll around vegas!

fyi - growlers are $20 filled... not terrible

On tap at The Pub in Las Vegas. Figured I'd try something local and was disappointed. I was hoping for a Hofbrau quality Weisse and this fell short.
Cloudy opaque appearance as expected. Smells more like a box of Runts candy than a beer. Not a fan of the overpowering banana flavor laced with bubblegum.
I'd only recommend it to banana candy lovers.

Poured on-tap at the bar in the Ventian. Unfiltered, giving a cloudy, almost opaque, yellow color. The nose is full of citrus and spice, similar to Pyramid Haywire. Flavor is heavily spiced, with a decent balance of citrus. The full bodied and round flavor of the beer made it extremely drinkable. A very decent Hef.

Had this beer from a tap poured plastic pint glass in LVNV. Too bad, but that's what you get here.

Nice look to it--typical wheat beer, unfiltered. Looked appetizing.

Smelled okay. Maybe a little acrid.

Tasted worse than I expected. It was a little too floral, which was unpleasant. It wasn't terrible, but not something I'd want again (hence the drinkability score).

Mouthfel was like you'd expect. Foamy, crisp--okay overall.
