look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A - Very cloudy yellowish orange with about 2 fingers of foamy white head that stuck around a little while. Good amount of carbonation bubbles streaming up.

S - Very solid hefe smell. Bananas, cloves, and some peppery spices.

T - Very similar to the nose. Banana up front with the cloves and spicy pepper on the back end.

M - Fairly creamy and light with a good amount of carbonation. Heavy enough that you probably wouldn't want to session this.

O - A solid hefeweizen. Sierra Nevada does some good work and this is no exception.

Appearance: Pale yellow, slightly orange; cloudy; big frothy white head, long lasting

Smell: Proper Hefeweizen aroma profile: peppery; cloves; banana

Taste: Pretty spot on for the style and what's expected from the smell

Mouthfeel: velvety smooth

Remarks: Glad to finally see an American brewer that knows how to properly brew a wheat beer

Hazy, straw colored, good head retention and better lacing characteristics than some imported hefes. Yeasty, phenolic aroma - well defined but not terribly engaging. Starts out quite chalky, then the other components come out. Clove first, then a bubblegum finish.

Flavor features a light malt backbone with a healthy dose of phenols. A bit lacking in the fruity, estery department - there's a banana note that's all too fleeting. Segues right to a light, crisp, pale malt base. Mouthfeel works well as there's a smooth, silky texture while still being well carbonated.

Hefe fans should keep an eye out for this as it's a solid, traditional interpretation of the style and likely to be fresher than imports on the shelves.
