look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Beer pours up a hazy gold, head dissipates a little quicker than I had hoped. The aroma is clove and citrus and maybe some green banana. A decent amount of yeast in the bottle really makes this beer shine. The flavor is heavy on clove and banana, with low to moderate hop bitterness singing backup nicely. It has an almost creamy finish. Good amount of carbonation brings out some lemon peel. I really like that Sierra went so hardcore with this beer, with open fermentation and warm temperatures. I will definitely be purchasing more before summer is out.

4.08/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle poured into wheat beer glass

L: pale yellow, half misty ... can see through it some; fluffy 2/3-inch head of white foam, surprisingly no stick or lace, but it keeps a fully skin of white foam on top with a massive white collar; looks like a bubble factory in the column ... hundreds and hundreds of very tiny bubbles cascade up to the top

S: banana ... classic wheat beer, sweet and light and fruity; butterscotch

T: follows the nose 1-to-1 and the first few sips are so sweet you'd swear you're drinking a good tripel. the banana and fruit notes never sour

F: perfect ... it's very full yet very light and drinkable ... seriously, it doesn't get better than this

O: lives up to Sierra Nevada's sterling reputation ... I've yet to have a bad beer from them, and this falls right in line with the rest of their goodness. a great, easy, light hefeweizen that's perfect for this Texas summer but so tasty I imagine I'd love one of these in any climate at any time.

great brew!
