Clarity isn't everything....i actually enjoy drinking the settled yeast (especially in witbier) but brewers yeast is really good for you and has many health benefits. the swmbo is into natural medicine and i stumbled across that little pearl while leafing through one of her many books.

Local brewery here, Bristol's, has a honey wheat that has sediment and it says to pour all but about 1/4 of the bottle, swirl then finish. Wonderful beer, but I didn't care for the sediment in my first brew. I just pour and as said sacrifice the 1/4 inch or so to the beer gods.
