4.13/5 rDev +1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance - Hazy yellow. The head is a good finger width, but retention is poor and the lace is sparse.
Smell - Mostly wheat and banana. A bit of yeast catches the nose.
Taste - Starts sweet with faint clove notes playing behind an undertone of wheat and banana; sweet with a touch of spice. Finishes with a subtle, clean wheat flavor and a soft bitter hop.
Mouthfeel - Nice body. Refreshing. A fair amount of carbonation bites the tongue before gliding down the throat and into the esophagus.
Overall - This is by far my favorite Sierra Nevada beer. Not quite as deep and complex as some of the top hefs in the world, but it's a damn good one in and of itself. I've noticed some inconsistencies from time to time; sometimes it's more flavorful, othertimes a little bland; usually more hit than miss. Reviewed an old bottle; candidate for a re-review.
