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

Poured into a pint glass
A: Pours out a golden hazy color. Big head emerges from the pour. Texture of the head is bubbly and foamy. As the head settles it leaves sticky lacing down the glass. The body has a nice cloudiness to it. Head eventually settles to a thin film.

S: Bananas hit as soon as I cracked open the bottle. Clove and some spiciness can also be detected once the beer is poured into the glass.

T: Clove is the upfront taste which gives way to a ripe banana taste. I can't believe how pronounced the banana flavor is here. It honestly taste like I've just taken a bite of a real banana.

M: Good feel to the beer. Body and carbonation are done well and the beer goes down amazingly smooth.

D: This beer is highly drinkable. I can't believe how fast I drank this beer. After I was done I was sad I didn't have anymore. This is prefect for a relaxing summer day. Go out and buy some of this, you will not be disappointed.

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!

4.71/5  rDev +16.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Had this in a pint glass at around 45 degrees.

Appearance: Gorgeous yellow with a 2.5 finger head that stays and doesn't dissipate quickly.

Smell: It is definitely restrained although I get some banana and some creaminess.

Taste: This is where it shines. Some lemon, cream, banana, clove (although not very much), sourdough bread.

Mouthfeel: creamy, easy, superb carbonation, light.

Overall: I would highly recommend this beer as it is an excellent interpretation of this style and quite possibly my favorite hefe.
