4.29/5 rDev +16.3%
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "PKGD 06/26/14".
APPEARANCE: pours a cloudy, yellow straw color with a one finger off-white head and good retention, the head eventually dissipated leaving a thin unbroken layer of bubbles that lasted throughout, slightly higher than average carbonation, there was a good amount of lacing present.
SMELL: bread, pepper, pears, grapefruit.
TASTE: the taste mostly follows the nose, there is an initial lemon citrus, then a mild pepper and pine hop profile with bread and yeast mixed in, to top it off there was a sour note at the end, very complex for the style, the 5.7% alcohol was almost imperceptible.
PALATE: this beer had higher carbonation and was somewhat creamy with medium body.
OVERALL: I really liked this beer and was a little surprised that a wheat beer could be this complex, I'm still trying to find a beer from Sierra Nevada that I do not like. I guess there is a reason these guys have been around for so long. I would recommend this to anyone who likes Belgian style beer or wheat beer, will definitely buy this again.

12 oz bottle poured into my Sam Smith pint glass. The beer is a hazy straw with a fluffy white head.
The beer has an aroma of grains, a bit of tropical fruit and a hint of citrus. Not much of the spice you get in the nose of some wits. Maybe the dwarf hops overpowered them?
There is a bit of coriander/pepper in the initial taste. There is some juicy fruit gum like tropical flavors and grains. I like the touch of sourness in the back end.
The mouth is sprightly with aggressive carbonation.
This would be a change of pace beer for me. There is nothing wrong with it at all, it just isn't really in my wheel house.
