This is a really dope beer that, admittedly, I stayed away from for a long time with the assumption that it would be less true to style, and more true to Sierra Nevada's trademark Cascade presentation. I couldn't have been more wrong.

Rather than extol the beauty of this beer, I'll mention some of its downsides, since that's much quicker.

Scent is very complex or yield the depth that many other top notch hefes have, but if you're into yeasty, it provides that.

Mouthfeel lacks texture and is more filmy than i'd like, but has good body and is probably closer to style than my preference.

The taste is excellent, yeasty wheat palette topped with sweet very banana base, some clove some clove.

Go for this beer! Don't hesitate. I can drink a sixer of this in one setting with no qualms or regrets.

A: Pours a beautiful, cloudy golden. Fluffy white head leaves good lacing too.

S: Slight funk, wheat, and clove. Pretty clean aroma.

T: Subtle flavors of wheat, banana, and clove, also a mineral like taste in the finish.

M: Thin, well carbonated and refreshing. Goes down quick.

Overall: I'm not a big fan of hefeweizens, but this is pretty good and a great example of the style
