This was my absolute favorite beer from Sierra Nevada. I still have a couple stored away, never to be had again, but to create a memory to hold onto.

What has always been my favorite wheat beer, this was far superior to their current filtered wheat (Old Chico Crystal Wheat).

I'm longing for the day that Ken and Brian decide to bring this one out of retirement, even if just for the Chico community. One can dream, right?

Poured from a bit above the glass gives this beer a big white head that slowly settles above a cloudy golden colored beer.

Grains, mostly wheat I guess with light citrus and some hops present in the aroma.

A better than average if not even better tasting wheat beer, none of the overbearing lemon or banana a lot of them have, instead as in the aroma grains, the wheat, with light citrus and some hops.

A medium or slightly less body on this beer without much aftertaste.
