I sprays compare the hefes to Weihenstephaner. I was surprised by how well this compared. The mouthfeel is heavier on this Sierra Nevada and I feel that the taste is heavier on the clove here. I don't have much access to Weihenstephaner by me so this now be a go too.

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

Poured a light gold color with a 2F head in a Hefeweizen glass.
The bottle is only 12 oz, so it didn't fill the glass all the way to the top.

Spice, clove, bananna and a hint of bubblegum in the aroma.

Mouth feel- above average carbonation. Not as carbonated as other beers in the style, which I would have preferred.

Taste: spice, clove, fruit, banana. The finish was very spicy.

Overall, a good Hefeweizen, but I prefer the imports such as Weihenstephaner and Paulaner.
This beer is very good for the style, but it doesn't have the prominent fruit, clove and spice which I have tasted in the German Hefeweizens. It's refreshing with a good finish, but it lacks the intensity and flavor of the latter beers.

4.41/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Serving style: bottle, poured into stein.

A: Dark, golden, cloudy as a Winter's day. Nice dirty hef, just like I like 'em.

S: Bananas! Cloves! Yeast!

T: Banana bread. Sweet banana bread with clove notes. Spiciness kicks in at the finish. Well-balanced with malty sweetness and spice.

M: thick, rich, velvety. The suspended yeast really makes this silky!

Overall: MMM Mmmmm!!! A very sessionable beer - my go-to when no good pints are available, it's priced decent, and in a six-pack. Hard to believe this comes from the same brewery as the horrid pale ale. A true winner by a large brewery.
