Served cold on tap at Universal Studios brewery. Opaque golden color with a small white head that left good lacing. The aroma was clove and bananas, and the taste was equally clove and banana. I was hoping for a bit more banana and a little less clove, but it was a pretty good hefeweizen.

On draft at Karl Strauss Universal City, 11/26/07. Cloudy, light yellow. Aroma is cloves, spice. Banana and clove flavors on palate, mildly sweet, clean finish. Not bad.

Sampler on tap at downntown San Diego brewpub. A little yeasty aroma, yeasty flavor, with some tropical fruit notes. Looks and pours like any other hefe. Interesting take on the style.

Little to no retention. Strong notes of bananas and cloves in the aroma and taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2010
SD trip, Karl Strauss LaJolla, sampler, had these while having a larger DIPA, flavors and ratings may be rough: Hazy unfiltered wheat with banana notes and good bavarian style. Very drinkable.

jjh19 (55) - California, USA - APR 8, 2014
Appearance: Bright yellow/orange with a terrific tiny bubble head. Smell: I got a lot of banana in the smell. Taste: A delicious sweetness. I get a lot of banana and vanilla notes. Very tasty. Mouthfeel: Extremely smooth. Drinkability: My favorite Hef I’ve ever had. Windansea Wheat is a hidden gem in the Karl Strauss beer line-up.
