UPDATED: MAR 29, 2006 Tap - This is a nice pleasant hefeweizen. It’s very drinkable, mild citrus flavor. Sweet and smooth while not really being fantastic in any way.

On Tap: A very average hefe. Thought it was a good example, but kind of weak and sterotypical. Bannanas, wheat, cloves, bubble gum, were the flavors and aromas. I agree that it was drinkable but kind of boring.

Draft. The normal cloudy yellow unfiltered look. Aroma was very nice, strong banana and wheat. The flavor was great with the perfect balance of the sweet and spicyness. This is my favorite wheat beer that I have tried so far at a local brewhouse.

On tap. Not too cloudy and very thin. Mouthfeel was disappointing and the flavor was largely sweet banannas. Some vanilla in the finish. Drinkable, but boring

SDalkoholic (2173) - Linda Vista, California, USA - APR 28, 2005
draft: Gold in color with haze and not much head developed from the pour. Nose was light. Flavor was of moderate amount of wheat and small spicy note of clove. Fairly decent.

Draft at Black Angus. My favorite of all the Karl Strauss I have tried. Cloudy yellow color with a decent head. Citrus aromas and flavors. Very smooth mouthfeel.

(Draft) Pours a cloudy yellow body with a nice creamy head. Aroma of banana and cloves. Flavor of banana and vanilla. Tasty.

On tap @ Islands. Cloudy, nice yellow color. Served with a lemon slice, wheat was dominated by citrus, but nontheless it was very easy and a great session beer. Nice rich feel, I was suprised at how easy this went down, and down and down...

Krawtschenko (4) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 8, 2004 does not count
Served on draft. Very nice cloudy appearance. Good head retention. Very pleasant wheat/fruit aroma. Very satisfying mouth feel, couldn’t order just one. Not like your typical Hefe.

Delicious. But I love hefe’s. This one is authentic and very refreshing. A great session beer.
