12 oz brown Sierra Nevada bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada Glass loaned to me from my cousin. After this experience, I bought my own glass from S-N.
A - The look of this hefe is remarkable. A very hazy golden yellow in color. Somewhat reminds me of a hazy straw color. Cloudy or hazy. It's just a pleasant looking brew as is most hefe style beers. The head is thick and off white in color. It subsides a bit as it sits, but still remained enough to know it's there. A good amount of creamy lace as well.
S - smell is sweet. Smells like a hefeweizen. Definitely a clove smell. But also Some spice. It's a real fresh, soothing smell. I could somewhat pick up a note of a fresh grassy smell and maybe some black pepper but seemed faint to me unlike the other notes I picked up.
T - Very refreshing and smooth. The first main taste I experienced was a banana taffy like taste, but as I adjusted to the brew, It somewhat reminded me of a sweet banana bread. Lovely really. The other notes I got were clove, A little spice, citrus, and a little grain or wheat. All of these were well balanced and bound together nicely.
M - I found this a to be a great tasting beer that's easy to drink. It's not overpowering and I didnt expect it to be. It's medium body and taste make a clean crisp style. Well done.
O - Just started experiencing Sierra Nevada brews. And I really don't know why I waited so long. This brew is a stunning piece of craft work. And is the brew that sold me on Sierra Nevada as a brewery. It's one of the best Hefes I've tried from anywhere. Yes, even Germany. A real winner here. A Must try.

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.
