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...

This is a very good example of Hefeweizen style. Pours hazy straw yellow with white head. Lots of aroma going on. Taste is spot on for this style. I will buy this one again. An excellent American example of this style. Weihenstephan Hefenweizen is my favorite German beer.

Pours a hazy, golden color with a couple inches thick, white head that is slow to fade away. Smell is banana bread, wheat, cloves, and yeast. Taste is banana bread, cloves, a hint of black pepper, and dry wheat. Creamy, soft body. Very nice hefe, smooth, tasty, all around great beer.

This beer has the look of a hef, straw, opaque and with little head. It got the light scent of a wheat hef also with that Belgian yeasty scent coming through(very standard smelling). Hey wait a sec, this has got a pretty darn good flavor, everything blends well but I also get a good amount of depth, there's pepper, some sweetness, some clove/banana notes...everything is well done in the taste department(top notch here) Feel is also dead on for this beer, good carbonation.

Pours a hazy gold with almost no head. Smells of banana esters, wheat malts, and cloves. Tastes of sweet banana esters, cloves, wheat malts, and finishes with banana bread. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall a great hefe.
