7/11/09, bottle>wheat glass

Drinkability/Summary = 5.0
"The best domestic Hefe I have poured down my throat to date. Somewhat of a banana bomb that goes down smooth and creamy. This was a welcomed surpise offering from Sierra, well done to the team out in Chico!"
I gave this one a 5 across the board due to it's fine rep of all categories for this style. Excellent price, and highly accessible as possibly my new go to hefe which I can find almost everywhere! Exceeded my expectations. Woot!

Appearance is a 5.0, golden cloudy honey/straw color, beautiful 3 finger head with excellent retention and lacing!
Smell is a 5.0 wiht just the right amount of banana aroma pushing it's way through some clove notes, but somehow not over done.
Taste is a 5.0, taste follows smell with some minor citrus whispers your name with a smooth creamy wheat malt backbone.
MF is a 5.0, medium body, high carbonation, smooth and creamy on palate.

Bottle from Fountainhead Chicago.

I think I've found my new absolute favorite hefeweizen! The color was a cloudy yellow with significant white head. The quintessential hefe appearance. Smell was of banana, hints of spice, yeast/wheat. Again, quintessential hefe.

The taste is superb! This is almost a sweet tasting beer. The fruits and spice really come out. It's smooth and goes down ridiculously easy. A great session beer.

Overall, absolutely nothing I can find wrong with this beer. It was recommended to me and I'm glad it was! CLASSIC hefe brew here...if you are a fan of the style this is a MUST try.
