Ya ya ya. On tap. It’s a citrus-lemon-spicy-orangey-cloudy type wheat beer. Light and for the sunshine only. You know what they taste like... right?

Draft at the downtown brewpub. Nice banana nose with clove notes. Hazy gold color with a white head that filmed, but did some lacing. Starts with excellent banana and clove. It only improves with time. Medium bodied with creamy carbonation. A nice, clean clove finish.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2007 I’m usually not a fan of lighter beers, but I love this one. Great lemon colored cloudy unfiltered beer. Served on tap at Karl Strauss brewery in Carlsbad. Good medium head with great lacing. A bit of corriander,very little bitterness. Try again and brought rating from 4 to 3.8

Just not my type. Flavor was too strong for a hefe and palate stings on your tongue in the aftertaste

Tmoney99 (12050) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2007
Draft at brewpub downtown. Poured cloudy yellow color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate banana clove sour citrus aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium sweet flavor with a solid sour citrus sweet finish of moderate duration. Good refreshing brew.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Very hazy yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma had big notes of banana. Yeasty spice and clove followed underneath. The flavor continued the banana and yeasty clove flavors. Also notes of wheaty lemon on the finish. The finish was dry. Lively mouthfeel with a slight CO2 bite.

Decided to change horses after strong ale fest at PP. Great idea, this hefe is a perfect representation of a Bavarian. Excellent clove banana,balance in nose and flavor, perfect after destroying the t-buds at the fest. When back in town will get again, to bad hefes suck in bottle. Open a Strauss in L.V.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2008 A relatively authentic Bavarian style wheat beer. Nice clove, banana, and bubblegum notes. Smooth. Not overly carbonated or heavy. A nice drinkable beer.
