At long last it has arrived in TN. I've been looking out for this beer for a while.
SN has managed to make an authentic hefe while making it eminently drinkable, something not all hefe's achieve. More on that later.
This has to be the cloudiest beer I've ever seen. All true hefe's are hazy but looking at this beer, I halfway expected to see chunks of yeast roiling in its murky depths...perhaps a baby Loch Ness monster.
The smell is yeasty with subtle hints of bubblegum and just a whisper of banana and cloves. This is reflected in the flavor as well.
Some hefe's I've tried will knock you down with bubblegum aroma and make you think you're drinking liquid Hubba Bubba. But the yeasty esters are nicely integrated in this SN brew, making it extremely quaffable. There is a slight dextrinous quality to the mouthfeel which gives it some much appreciated body....not that it's thick, just not watery as some lighter ABV brews are prone to being.

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.
