12oz bottle poured into a weizen glass, yeast agitated and added.
A: Pours a cloudy, opaque golden-orange. Highly effervescent with fast moving streams of bubbles. Huge pillowy white head has great retention. Fluffy, clumpy rings of lacing stick everywhere.
S: Freshly baked bread, walnuts, clove, hints of banana. Black pepper and spice. Highly aromatic, excellent nose.
T: Ripe bananas, banana bread. Clove and spices. Touch of pineapple and tropical fruit. Pepper. Bready and wheaty with a touch of walnut. Finishes with wheat, walnuts, lingering spice, and some chalky yeast.
M: Medium bodied. Full, fluffy, creamy. Prickly carbonation. Very on-point for the style.
O: Hands down the best American-made hefeweizen I've ever had. It gives even the best German examples a run for their money. Sierra Nevada really nailed the style with this one. It's amazing that they're able to make it so consistently and in such large supply. This is an amazing beer on many levels.
