Hazy golden color with a two finger head with medium retention.
Nice aroma of wheat and floral hops, more like a regular Keller, but once the bottom yeast is poured you get some bananas and cloves. Likely not that fresh.
Refreshing taste of oranges, wheat and bananas. Notes of yeast and spices. Dry and astringent aftertaste.
Light body with good carbonation and a mild acid feeling.
Very pleasant beer, revealed more citric than average and not overly sweet which enhanced its drinkability.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a completely opaque yellow with a white head.

The smell is sweet, cloves and pepper.

The taste is much the same as the smell, light with cloves and other spices.

The mouthfeel is light and refreshing.

This would be a nice hot weather session able beer, light but tasty.

A: Poured from a keg into a clear pint glass. Very cloudy, light yellowish/gold color with a good sized foamy white head.

S - Somewhat sweet earthy/bready smell. Bananas too?

T - It had that Sierra Nevada taste you expect from their beers, but it just didn't work for me in a Hefeweizen.

M - The beer looks unfiltered and fairly pale, so I expected it to be a little heavy. The cloudy beer proved to be lighter in my mouth than expected though.

O - A very interesting Hefeweizen. If you had not told me Sierra Nevada made this one I would of guessed it from the distinct flavor. Unfortunately I am not a fan of banana flavors, so this beer just wasn't for me. It is worth trying though.

3.72/5  rDev -8.1%
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.
