A- Poured from 12oz bottle into a weizen glass. Pours a hazy, cloudy light orange. 1 finger white head. Decent retention. Slippery lacing. Doesn't really grab the glass, but not expecting it to. Beautiful carbonation bubbles.

S- Banana, banana bread, yeasty, bubble gum, lemon, sweet with a touch of peppery spice. Esters. Nice smell. I'm interested.

T- Sweet up front with bananas and yeast again. Lots of cloves and esters. Buttery. Taffy. Crisp, pepper finish that i wasn't expecting, but i really liked the surprise. Some tart notes. Love the contrasting smoothness up front with some kick in the back.

M- Mid body. Thicker than i expected, and i like it. Very smooth. Perfect carbonation. Not real dry or bitter.

O- One of my favorite from Sierra Nevada. Would be perfect on a hot summer day, but drinking it in Tulsa on a cool March evening, i understand why this is a year round offer. A great touch on a German style. I only have a moderate amount of hefeweizen experience so i can't wait to compare it to some of the German classics. A delicious beer.
