look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
I had a bottle of this recently - a golden light hazed color with thick cream -basic look of hefeweizen or pale wheat with good retention. The smell is faintly spicy with some light fruity banana esters with subtle toasted, but mostly yeast oriented aroma which is pretty fragrant and pleasant. The Feel is good a bit sharp with carbonation and spice without a smooth feel - I guess more of an American take perhaps it has some hops to give a more aggressive texture. Mild body with easy to quaff dry finish.
The flavor is good with mild body and wheat aspects. The flavor is slightly fruity with some wheat yeast character but gentle taste overall and practically no alcohol with mild clove-like tinge and pepper in the finish with slight tangy yeast throughout. overall not a bad wheat beer, not a traditional hefeweizen really but it fits well enough and I like the way it tastes based on the change to open fermentation ala Sierra Nevada - it is worth trying.
