Wittales (632) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Appearance was cloudy gold with diminishing creamy white fizzy 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are banana, clove, bubblegum, soft grain, and cream. Taste are soft clove, wheat, banana, bubblegum with hints of pear and lemon. Palate was soft fizzy CO2 with light body, then fruity traditional smooth finish. A good American Hefe, summer delight.

Appearance: Bright yellow/orange with a terrific tiny bubble head. Smell: I got a lot of banana in the smell. Taste: A delicious sweetness. I get a lot of banana and vanilla notes. Very tasty. Mouthfeel: Extremely smooth. Drinkability: My favorite Hef I’ve ever had. Windansea Wheat is a hidden gem in the Karl Strauss beer line-up.

Smells a little funky. Pours cloudy straw with a thin white head. Pretty good flavor for a wheat beer.

ARH (369) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2014
On tap served into a weizen glass. Initially, I thought I picked up notes of blueberry, peach, and even some yeast on the nose, but after awhile, the standard banana and clove dominant, with a hint of lemon. It pours a hazy pale with a thick, creamy white head that retains well and leaves lots of micro bubble lace. the beer is a blend of medium-light sweetness and a very light bitterness along with a trace amount of sour citrus. The beer is light bodied with a thin, watery texture. It kinda has the feel of a watered down lemonade. It’s very crisp, and clean with a low amount of soft carbonation - very refreshing summer session type beer. In the mouth, it’s mostly a banana and caramel taste that finishes with a faint orange rind and leaves a mild bubblegum aftertaste which doesn’t last long.

Draft at Karl Strauss. Cloudy yellow straw color, with a white head. Banana, wheat, quite sweet, light apple, and a bit of citrus. Decent.

Sask89 (414) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - SEP 1, 2013
Taster at La Jolla location. Pours a heavily clouded golden yellow colour with a thin white head. Aroma is of banana and clove, with a little yeast. Taste has no bitterness and a muted sweetness. Light body, thin on the palate and standard carbonation for a wheat beer. Overall a fine wheat beer, but nothing special.
