Bottled 1/10/17. Maybe not ideal? Still quite good, though.
Pours a hazy yellow . (Like a Pils, but cloudy)
Aroma is of yeasty banana&bubblegum ester, with a very slight spice aroma.
Thick, puffy white head, similar to many Belgian-types that it resembles. Some long-lasting lacing & surface foam.
Flavor is similar to aroma, with slight hop bitterness & fine half-soft/half-prickly carbonation lingering briefly on the tip of the tongue.
Overall, a pleasant offering, and pretty much the same as a Belgian blonde, a la Ommegang Gnomegang. Worth a try.

Huge white, creamy, frothy head that sticks all the way down the glass. Very cloudy grapefruit juice in appearance. Lots of bubble gum, banana, and clove, in the aroma and flavor. Medium thin body, average carbonation, and a little slick in the feel. Very pleasant brew.

12oz bottle to my FW Imperial Nonic glass
First noted on 07.18.15

Another style slayer from Sierra Nevada
Golden blonde body. Thoroughly hazed unfiltered look. Adorned with a neat stack of paper white foam. Dense and lasting like shave cream as it clings to the glass walls upon each sip.
Fruit gum and toasted wheat grain with clovey spices and a dash of banana peel. Funny my notes read more like some kind of funky bread recipe but in actuality a pretty tasty brew it does make for. Creamy and smooth with minimal bitterness. Touch of citrus peel noted.
Goes down super smooth. One of the better Hefe’s I have come across which isn’t saying a whole lot but hey.

On tap at Yokohama's Antenna America.

L: Hazy yellow as per usual with your Hefeweizens, finger width white head.

S: Banana! Clove, coriander and allspice, and yeast.

T: Banana! Spice again and bready yeast. Sweeet and smoooth.

F: Medium bodied and super smooth.

O: Wow, this is very close to a quality German Hefe here.

Pours a nice murky amber, very small head. Smells of wheat and faint pine. Quite right on the carbonation, with a slight fizzle on the tongue. I'm truly enjoying the citrus notes that ride from the first taste straight into the nose. One is great, but sessions are definitely a trip.
