I was expecting to not like this beer cuz its Belgian. Plus most wits IMO suck. This is actually delicious.
A-Very light, almost pilsner like, which is to say wit-like. Thin head.
S-Yum. Smells soo good, I get orange, grapefruit and peach. You can get a sort of herbal aroma in there too... sorta has that Blue Moon like smell to it, but thankfully doesnt taste like it.
T-Wow! I really really like this beer! Id buy it if it came in 6 packs. All the hop aromas shine thru in flavor. Its really great. I dont normally like this style of beer, but this is somethin else.
M- Highly drinkable, not too thin, very smooth. Solid brew.
Overall this exceeded my expectations and Sierra Nevada never lets me down. Probly my favorite brewery right now.

This is about as high a rating you will ever see me give to a wheat beer. I hate them in general. This one is pretty good and I attribute the hops to this to give that rancid wheat beer taste some kick. It was light in color, but the hops were there and made for a well balanced brew. I got this in a mixed 12 pack. Apparently every store in my area is running amazing sales on Sierra Nevada right now, I guess awaiting the Beer Camp. Which, is an amazing idea, but so far I have not been overly impressed. I am giving it a true chance though. This one is good. And from me that's a bold statement. Not that I am an expert, but I generally hate wheat beers. So, take it as you will. Those who don't like wheat beers but IPA's give this a try, those who like wheat beers you may still get something out of this. Hell, it may get you out of your wheat beer challenged world into some big boy beers!
