look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
I am not a huge fan if Hefe's, and this beer didn't turn me on to them, although it wasn't bad.
It poured the typical cloudy yellow, with a foamy head that maintained on the side, and provided some lacing. The nose nose mostly banana, and done lemon. I didn't get much spice (clove).
The taste was bready, with the same banana-lemon notes. Again, not much spice to me in the taste. It was somehow both smooth (like banana pudding), but seemed slightly watery. I realize it's a lighter style, but it didn't seem quite right.
As stated, not going to run to re-evaluate my opinion on the style because of this one, but I would have another as an option or change of pace.

12 oz. bottle poured into wheat beer glass
L: pale yellow, half misty ... can see through it some; fluffy 2/3-inch head of white foam, surprisingly no stick or lace, but it keeps a fully skin of white foam on top with a massive white collar; looks like a bubble factory in the column ... hundreds and hundreds of very tiny bubbles cascade up to the top
S: banana ... classic wheat beer, sweet and light and fruity; butterscotch
T: follows the nose 1-to-1 and the first few sips are so sweet you'd swear you're drinking a good tripel. the banana and fruit notes never sour
F: perfect ... it's very full yet very light and drinkable ... seriously, it doesn't get better than this
O: lives up to Sierra Nevada's sterling reputation ... I've yet to have a bad beer from them, and this falls right in line with the rest of their goodness. a great, easy, light hefeweizen that's perfect for this Texas summer but so tasty I imagine I'd love one of these in any climate at any time.
