DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 1, 2010
On tap at Karl Strauss at the La Jolla location (San Diego, CA): Pours out a cloudy pale yellow. Nose is of candied banana and some clove. Flavor of whole wheat banana bread and fruity bubble gum. Carbonated throughout the feel with an added milk shake texture. Lemon zest finish. Very sweet. Drinkability: Tastes really commercial. But close to solid for the style they’re presenting. Pairing: Light salad over garlic seasoned pita bread. Rebuy: Probably not. #313 on 01032010, DG.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 23, 2010
On tap at LAX May 2009: Pours a hazy golden brass with a well-lacing frothy white head. Aroma of lightly sweet malted wheat and banana esters with a touch of Bavarian hops. Starts with good fullness and finely dissolved carbonation along with light wheaty sweetness, some clove spice and bready yeastiness before a slightly more bitter crisp finish. A pretty good hefeweizen.

elihapa (1533) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - FEB 17, 2010
Pours gold with a small head. Nose has a strong banana element, mixed in with a touch of plastic. Flavor is vanilla and banana, with mineral aromatics and straw/bread. The dominant flavor is banana and grainy bread, not bad at all. Mouthfeel is refreshing.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2010
Part of a sampler in San Diego. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of banana, citrus, and cloves. Similar flavor, a light beer. Decent overall.

ben4321 (4832) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Location: On tap at the The Fish Market in San Diego, 1/5/10

Aroma: Banana, clove, wheat, orange
Appearance: Hazy yellow color
Flavor: German wheat flavor, with banana and spice
Palate: Light-medium, crisp, refreshing
Overall Impression: My first (of 4 from last week) Karl Strauss rating. It was a solid beer, nice outdoor refresher, and that works well in a locale where you can pretty much always sit outside and drink. Fairly typical German style hefe, nice flavors, but nothing super exciting.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2009
On tap. Hazy and opaque yellow with a white head. A little banana and yeast in the nose. Medium body, banana, yeast and phenols - as it should be. The finish is dry. 070709

Ungstrup (30746) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2009
Draft at the Carlsbad location. An unclear light golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of wheat and banana as well as light notes of cloves. The flavor is sweet with notes of wheat, banana, and cloves, leading to a dry wheaty finish.

jb (2539) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 17, 2009
On tap at beer stand in Disney. Thanks again to Ratebeerians, for the alert on this being the only semidecent beer in the place. I opted for the slice of orange. Very hazy, somewhat pale, constant head made it look nice. Big banana nose, once you get past the orange. Palate is sour yet dry and astringent, very carbonated in a good way. A very solid German-style hefe.

DSG (8610) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 18, 2009
(11/2/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in downtown San Diego. Cloudy yellow color. Aroma of wheat and banana. Sweet wheaty flavor with some bread notes, fruity esters and light spiciness and a bit of tartness in the finish. Medium-bodied. Pleasant.

Tap at Carlsbad. Pours a hazy yellow orange with a smaller bubbly white head. Aroma of banana, clove, wheat and lemon. Flavor of the same with a touch of vanilla and a little sweet.
