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.
