Sierra Nevada has done well with their Hefeweizen. Anyone who has had real a German hefe knows that it's tough to get a comparable version in the States. Sierra Nevada got this one right, from the taste to the color to the cloudiness. For you hefe lovers out there, you can't miss with Sierra Nevada's Kellerweis Hefeweizen.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured 3/4 in a pint glass swirled rest of contents in bottle and poured the rest in to get the sediment.

Appearance: 2 finger white foam head on top of a hazy yellow beer. Quite cloudy due to the sediment.

Smell: ripe banana, malty, tropical almost

Taste: malty and bitter up front followed by huge banana sweetness. Notes of vanilla, yeast, spice. I didn't taste much clove in this beer but it was noticeable. Very banana heavy. Quite refreshing

Mouthfeel: Smooth and velvety. Once I got used to the spicy bitterness up front, it went down really easily.

Overall: This is another great offering from SN. Great example of a Hefe. I could drink these all day. Very refreshing and great balance behind the very upfront banana flavor. Would definitely have again.
