Sierra Nevada Kellerweis Hefeweizen

12 oz stubbie (usual SN presentation) poured aggressively into the Tucher, 0.5 L Weizen glass – nice pairing.
Looks good and as it should. High, rocky, white head and a light, lemon colored body with the appropriate clouded appearance. Unusually though, very little yeasty sediment came out in the last 20% swirl.
Nose lays on the banana side of things rather than the clove. Spices are low-key for the style.
Light banana is replicated in the tastes with a touch more spice being evident compared to what was suggested by the nose. Simple, but true to style.
Mouthefeel is where this beer seems to fade some. It feels a little too watery for me and frankly I end end being a bit disappointed. Lacks depth. Lowish ABV helps me to like this more.
Nice looker, nice nose and some tastes that work, but this beer ultimately fails to deliver in terms of mouthfeel and satisfaction.
