3.93/5  rDev -3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A- pours out a rich, but light gold. Slightly darker than I expected; but appealing

S- classic hefe aroma: citrus, tang, all there

T- classic hefe taste, too; not the best hefe, but a solid one

M- ever so slightly heavy for a hefeweizen

D- quite sessionable; not hoppy or overly carbonated

Overall, a good solid hefe. I'd happily drink if offered, but there are several German brews I'd prefer.

3.74/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Murky burnt yellow color, orangish tint. An eggshell colored head recedes to a white film, light spots of watery lacing.

Aroma: Fruity bouquet dominated with banana notes and wheat.

Taste: A really solid wheat and grain backbone dressed up in sweetness and banana peels.

Mouthfeel: Medium in weight with some carbonation.

Overall: Really sweet and refreshing.

3.28/5  rDev -19%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Bottle into weizen glass. Poured as suggested on label.

A - Medium density, 3-finger head reducing to about half-finger. Moderate lacing. Before becoming opaquely hazy it bubbles like champagne.

S - Disappointing/lacking for style. Mainly clove, yeast, and soap. Some hints of banana/banana bread, but not nearly enough compared to other hefes.

T - Even more disappointing. Anything it was trying to accomplish feels restrained and shoved into an ill-fitting envelope. None of the smells make any substantial presence on the palate. Nothing remotely interesting.

M - Smooth, easy drinking, refreshing. However, also unacceptably flat and slightly oily. The degree of carbonation evident on pour has been completely lost, which is a shame since it needs carbonation (or something, at minimum) to make up for the lack of bitterness.

O - Perhaps my tastes have been ruined by DIPAs; perhaps pale wheat ales have ruined hefes for me. Whatever the case, a disappointing brew. No hallmarks of the hefe style are expressed as extreme as I've come to expect Sierra Nevada to generally do with a given style/beer. This isn't a necessarily a bad brew, though it left much to be desired stylistically.
