From notes 9/15/12: Pours a thick cloudy, ocher producing a large, lasting white head which leaves exceptional lacing. Aroma and taste mirror each other with banana, bread, mild clove, light lemon being dominant. Nice effervescence, balance and wet finish. Very refreshing and much more complex than this brief description hints at.

On draft, light golden in color with a slight haze, minimal head, slight lacing. Just a hint of banana and clove. The taste you get more banana and a bit of clove, slight malt backbone which gives a hint of sweetness. Mouthfeel, slight carbonation a little bit chewy. After taste is sweet with a good mouth coating some banana

12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L---Pale gold color, almost completely clear on the pour, then completely clear after it settles.. Very thick head with nice retention and excellent lacing. Eternal rising bubbles.

S---A touch of keller funk. A little bit of the banana/clove combo I was hoping for. Yeastiness in the background.

T---The banana/clove combo is more prominent than in the nose. Yeast/malts are clearly there. Perhaps a little coriander.

F---Feels like a weissbier should. It's clean & bubbly.

O---A proper weissbier from a proper brewery. Nice work, guys. I'd like another (or two or three).

Light like a fantasy, I dream of reality. Delicate and bare, I sip as if no one is there. I want, I need, I need, I want... Another sip is had. Light, crisp, banana for dazeeeee. Raul drinks this beer and he thinks it’s ok.

12oz bottled 5/1/18 (80 days ago) poured into a small wheat beer glass at fridge temp 4.8% ABV. The beer pours just the slightest bit hazy, golden straw yellow in color with off white head. The head recedes to a thin cap and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is a little wheat malt and slight clove. The taste is wheat with some semisweet banana. No real bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, adequately carbonated and undry in the finish. Overall, good. Not my style, but well made and subtle.

A very nice American Hefeweizen. Very smooth easy drinking beer. You could just chug these down like nothing. An excellent contrasting beer to have prior to something else more potent and snappy. I usually have some of these on hand.

I don't know why this beer gots such a high rating might be fake bots..I thought people on this site knew quality beer guess not.This beer is a marketing scam.Nowhere does this taste like a Bavarian wheat false advertising people.It is more of a American hoppy wheat beer they get a F trying to replicate a true German beer.It taste more like a pale ale pine and citrus.Come on Sierra you guys should know not to push this as a Bavarian no sweet wheat or banana bubblegum flavor wut so ever fail...
