3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2009 Served far too cold and with a huge lemon wedge at California Pizza Kitchen. However after warming slightly I could tell this was a solid offering. Very cloudy yellow. Not transparent at all - almost like an orange smoothy in appearance. A big frothy white head and maybe a little too much carbonation. Perfect balance of sweet/sour citrus notes blended with the classic banana and clove aroma and flavor. Somewhat dry and bitter in the finish, but a delicious beverage none the less.
Rerate: Just had this a second time at Islands Burgers without realizing that I’d already had it. Again served too cold, VERY high carbonation. Some weird off flavors - almost in a cheap homebrew malt kind of way. Going to knock it down a bit.

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

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.
