poured a hazy golden, small head that diminished quickly to a very thin collar.
smell is of banana and clove, very authentic aroma here.
taste is citrusy with banana and clove notes in the back, if someone had told me that this beer is German I would believe them! very authentic tasting hefeweizen..very good as well.
overall this is probably the best hefeweizen made on this side of the ocean that I have had...there may have been a couple of others, but this one stands up beautifully..I recommend!

Poured into a weizen glass.

A: The appearance is extremely hazy, pale golden straw color that gets almost as light as lemon juice around the edges. Fluffy 2 finger head fell to about a cm, some patchy lacing.

S: Semi sweet, very spicy clove aroma, dry toasted grain. Very little fruit in the aroma.

T/M: Spicy wheat grain, dry slightly funky yeast, hints of lemon zest. Crisp, dry finish. Light-medium body, pretty refreshing, high carbonation bite.

O: Sierra Nevada did a good job to create a good legitimate weiss beer. On par with some Bavarian versions.
