Favorite beer. Really hard to find a real unfiltered Hefe. The bottle of the bottle is the best part. Love the texture, and the citrus taste.

Hazy golden yellow, not much head. Lemon zest and light wheat. Smells like summertime. Spicy , bubblegum yeast but very refreshing. Was hoping for more wheat at the end but it was missing. Super refreshing though and I could see this being a summer staple.

12 oz bottle, poured into a snifter at 40 degrees F.

Appearance: Pours a hazy straw gold, with a thick white head with decent retention.

Smell: Floral and citrus, which is not at all what one wants to smell from a hefeweizen.

Taste: And as the smell indicates, my Wall O Hop sensitivity strikes. This tastes like compost pile runoff, no other flavors perceptible.

Mouthfeel: Light and effervescent.

Overall: This is in keeping with every Sierra Nevada experience I have had, with the exceptions of Narwhal and Tumbler. Please discontinue this. It is emphatically not an actual hefeweizen.

Pours a very hazy grapefruit color. A huge creamy head with lots of carbonation. A wonderful weizen smell. Banana, clove, spice. Very balanced taste. It is not as good as the Franzenkansers of the world, but good. The favors come together well. More crisp taste with a nice little bite finishing from hops.

Just about the best hefeweizen out there. Great banana and clove flavors.

Trying to rate to style. Really enjoyed this on a warm AZ day. Beautiful cloudiness, typical hefe aroma of spice/nanners and perfect carb.
