12oz bottle into Duvel Green tulip.
A: Pours a glowing honey with a frothy and thick greasy white head that faded into a sticky and rocky film. Sheets of bubbly thick clinging lace were left down the glass. Well retained head.
S: Tangerine, chalky yeast and orange juice, wheat, and herbal, spicy hops.
T: Very spicy hops with herbal, earthy, and dry hop flavors. There's a kiss of citrus rind and grainy wheat. The finish is lightly bitter, and the aftertaste is full of creamy wheat and spice. There is faint hints of clove and peppery hops as well.
M: Medium body, soft and tingly carbonation. Fluffy and clean mouthfeel. Drinks well.
O: Bitter, clean, and quaffable. Good creamy wheat, tons of unique spicy hops. Drinks well.

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!
