Bottle lists "Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Co." but "Brewed & bottled by Sequoia Brewing Co., Roseville, CA". Sequoia's site doesn't list a location in Roseville...

Cloudy brownish orange. At first there wasn't any foam in the glass, but a stronger pour brought about a sudsy head and lacing. Murky looking with the yeast poured in.

Clean and distinct banana aroma, good sense of freshness.

Spicy clove in the background, smooth wheat, and orange peel in the aftertaste. A little thin and prickly in the mouthfeel. Ample carbonation, and a little bit gaseous. Overall an easy drinker anytime, it would probably be great with food.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear, pale golden color with copious amounts of carbonation visible. Its small, white head dissipates quickly, leaving a small ring around the top. It says that it is unfiltered, but it certainly fooled me.

S: The first aspects I pick up are spicy cloves and black pepper. The are very predominant, but other aromas come out including fresh wheat and a moderate citrus sweetness.

T: The taste is mostly comprised of fresh wheat. The cloves and spices found in the nose are nonexistent in the taste. There is just a slight lemon-y finish.

M: Light bodied and highly carbonated. Finishes with a slight citrus-like crispness. The feel is good for the style.

O: This is just an average wheat ale. The taste was a bit of a let down. Would've like some more fruitiness and more of an input from the hops.

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

pour is a hazy vibrant orange with light copper notes. very light head and barely any retention

light wheat and light banana scents

light wheat up front, a bit harsh but a decent wheat flavor. light banana with slight malt flavors. light citrus hop flavors in the aftertaste.

slight carbonation bite and a bit light feeling.

and interesting mix to a hefe-pale ale mix. the better of the ones i have had.

A bottle brought to me from the USA (Thanks Mel!). The label says that this is half cream ale and half weizen. It poured more cream ale than weizen with a haze to the body. Modest head that faded. Not too much to smell, maybe some sweetness.
Not a complex brew though it has some spiciness, and not very much in the way being a weizen. It certainly has many characteristics of a cream ale, but for me this brew does not really work. I started to tire of it towards the finish, it was a bit disappointing really.

Thanks to emerge077 for sharing.

A - Hazy dirty yellow with a thin white head that lingers until the finish.

S - Banana and bready wheat malt. Slight soapy or some type of cleaner in aroma.

T - Clove and citrus with some bready wheat malt. I pick up the soapy like taste I found in the aroma. It is very slight but throws off the taste just a bit.

M - Somewhat of a dull mouthfeel even with plenty of carbonation. A little dryer on the finish than I remember most wheats.

D - Tasty. This would be even better if I wasn't picking up the soapy aroma/flavor but it is subtle enough that I could probably have more than one on a nice sunny day.
