3.8/5 rDev -6.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
12 oz bottle poured as instructed into a DFH snifter. Last third of the bottle is swirled to rouse the yeast
A - Orange and cloudy, with a finger and a half of pillowy foam. Dissipates fairly quickly
S - Banana, spicy phenolic nose. This is certainly a hefe
T - Banana bomb. Yeast smacks you in the tongue. Wheat malt rounds out the beer nicely.
M - High amount of carbonation tickles the tongue. No bitterness to speak of, just a spicy banana flavor
D - Very drinkable, if you are in the mood for a hefe. Would be great on a hot day.
Very good for the style, but not my favorite style of beer. I'd be interested to see how this tastes with <gasp!>... a lemon.

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.
