Purchased a fresh six-pack from BevMo! Cypress. Bottled on May 29th, 2009.
A- Poured into an Allagash stemmed glass, this beer pours a thoroughly hazy, almost glowing, gold color. A standard pour produces a huge, billowy white head of foam that takes a while to settle down into a thick layer over the beer. A few splotches of lacing cling to the glass for the duration of the beer.
S- Massively wheaty and yeasty with bold notes of banana, clove spice, bubblegum and lemon zest. A citrusy accent of hops lies in the background.
T- Wheat malt and spicy, fruity yeast with a mildly hoppy bite and nice zing of lemon flavor towards the slightly metallic finish. All the characteristics of the aroma are here in the taste.
M- Rich, full-bodied with a nice amount of light carbonation. The mouthfeel has a nice chewy texture to it.
D- The low 4.8% ABV along with the rich flavor and aroma makes this a deliciously sessionable hefe that'll be a fantastic summer beer, though I look forward to drinking this year round.
After trying one stale German hefeweizen after another, I'm grateful to have a fresh, tasty wheat beer readily available. Another home run for Sierra Nevada.
