look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

This brew pours a cloudy hazy yellow-orange color with a one finger head which lasts for a few minuets. Very thin lacing on the glass. Low carbonation.

The smell is thick with yeast, wheat, bananas and bread.

The taste is heavy on bananas and wheat. The cloves come through as do some peppery tasting hops on the backend.

The mouthfeel is pretty thin and creamy, the peppery hops stay on the tounge after swallowing.

Overall I have had better spiced wheat beers with more spice and more complex flavors but I would put this in my top ten and maybe even my top five.

really do enjoy nearly everything from Sierra, these guys are awesome. I always think of beers from Sierra to be very hop forward, however they have really done well with this one. I am not a huge fan of wheat beers but they do have there place in the beer world and I would say if I was to stray from the classic German versions, this is where I would go.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Revisiting this guy for the sake of memory comparison and to actually formally review it. It's been a while. It pours a mostly clear gold topped by an active column of white foam. The nose comprises heavy clove, banana, and a touch of dry wheat. The taste brings in more of the same, but the clove is toned-down to a sensible level, and some orange zest peeks its way in as well. The body is a light medium, with a moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a solid hefe, one that's too spicy on the nose and too bubbly for my liking, but one that's still fairly drinkable.
