3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Wheaty base, banana fruity and yeasty notes, and a hint of bubblegum. Not bad, but definitely overcarbonated. A rare "1" on palate from me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Steam Haus Gastropub in Corona, CA. KS. Hazy gold pour, glowing, with minimal foam. Nice estery nose, more yellow apple than expected and certainly more hefeweizen than American wheat. Taste is chalky and vegetal... overripe with diacetyl. As it warms, it gains some lemon acid, yellow apple cider character. It’s certainly drinkable, just has a few off flavors.

Pours a hazy golden with sparse head. Light aroma somewhat of wet leather and old fruits. Odd taste - hard to place the flavors. Apricot / pear? Average. Nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
~16 oz draft at California Adventure in Anaheim, California. The pour is a cloudy white yellow with a smallish white head. The aroma is grain wheat, light citrus, and a fair amount of clove banana yeast. The taste is a nice balance between the grain wheat, the zest of the lemon and finishes with the Hefe yeast notes. Decently clean flavors. The palate is medium to light bodied, pleasantly unfiltered mouth feel and clove banana and earth wheat in the finish. Hit the spot.
