12oz bottle at fridge temp served in a hefeweizen glass.

Appearance: Light straw colored. pale and hazy (I stirred the yeast at the bottom and added it as you should). Creamy head of medium bubbles that sank to a rim around the glass.

Nose: Bready, Malty, banana, clove spiciness.

Taste: Light and refreshing, very low hop bitterness, bubbles lift from the tongue and delivery the classic banana and clove flavors associated with a hefe. This is very classic to and a great example of the style.

Finish: very short (1-3 seconds then gone)

Poured from the bottle into my Delirium tulip.

Appears an amazing golden hazy color with a slight orange tinge. Impossible to see through. Big fluffy white head dissipates quickly.

Smell is delicious. Slightly tart with typical belgian yeast smells - banana, clove, orange - slight tartness.

Taste follows smell to a T. Very refreshing - yeast qualities not overwhelming at all.

Mouthfeel is nice and creamy.

Overall, fantastic example of the style. Not my typical style of beer but this one is good!

12oz bottle poured into a wheat glass

Appearance - Typical hefe look. Murky golden straw color. Solid head with descent retention.

Smell - Some clove and banana. Very pleasant.

Taste - Taste matches smell with a little tartness to it which I wasn't expecting.

Mouth fell- Good medium body fitting for the style

Overall - Is this as good as some of the big hitters from Bavaria, no. However for the price and availability it is a solid hefe. I would buy this again for the price alone. For the craft beer noob this would be a great beer to introduce them to beers with more flavor.

Appearance- bright orangish murky hue. Classic unfiltered hef. White soapy head holds up well if poured right. Brew that is as inviting seen across the room just as much if held in your hand.

Smell-strong clove, un ripened banana.

Taste- clove, banana, medicinal flavors, real nice Bavarian yeast flavor. Nice spiciness, a lot of banana flavors which you'd expect from the style, but the clove spiciness from the yeast strain is probably the most upfront in this beer.

Drinkability- go to on a hot day, refreshing, goes down smooth. Real nice body. I'm all about hefeweizens right now and this is by far my favorite american rendition of the style. Sierra Nevada rarely disappoints. The yeast strain the use totally is on point for the style. Way better this Widmer or Pyramid actually puts those two to sham!
