on tap at Karl Strauss, C+ beer at the most. Their pilsener that I sampled alongside was much better.

Smells mediumly of bananas. Flavor is quite wheaty with some coatingness to it that I also don’t like. Much too wheaty for me with a bad aftertaste.

Not one to be missed. Immediate hints of banana and citrus. Medium body for a hefe, smooth finish. Seems to be hit or miss in terms of batches.

On draught at Islands restaurant in Huntington Beach, served with a lemon. The beer is a hazy yellow-gold color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing. Wheat, bananas and clove in the nose. Medium, clean body with wheat, tropical fruit and sweet spice flavors. The finish is fruity with a lingering wheaty aftertaste. Above average overall.
