Appearance: traditional average gold color, very hazy, has a small off white head Aroma: very funky, banana, yeast, bread, very aromatic Taste: lemon, some light bitterness, very strong banana and bread, Palate: average to soft carbonation, very nice hefe froth, banana mouthfeel, minimal aftertaste Overall: one of the better hefeweizen beers I've had, very strong flavors and aromas, highly recommended, from a draft pour which I'm sure explains the lack of head ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wittales (760) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Appearance was cloudy gold with diminishing creamy white fizzy 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are banana, clove, bubblegum, soft grain, and cream. Taste are soft clove, wheat, banana, bubblegum with hints of pear and lemon. Palate was soft fizzy CO2 with light body, then fruity traditional smooth finish. A good American Hefe, summer delight.

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

Nice cloudy appearance, with a wheat/banana aroma. Wheat, banana, slight smoke and some sweet spice came through nicely. Very good and refreshing.

Cimbasso (618) - - JAN 19, 2015
Sampled on draught at the Hilton Anaheim. it hs a hazy pale yellow colour with a white head, and the aromas are tangy, with typical wheat beer scents. The taste is good and fairly typical of the style, with yeasty lemon notes and that distinctive banana and clove flavour. What makes this beer different is that the there is a bass note of vanilla to counter-balance the upper notes of citrus and spices. This makes for a really interesting and well-balanced beer, full of vivid flavours. Highly drinkable.

Wombata (606) - Kobe, JAPAN - MAY 12, 2013
Reefered bottle. Aroma: classic wheat, banana, and clove Palate: tingling attack of carbonation. Flavor: Like the aroma. Finishes with a touch of bitterness. Comment: I’ve had a number of German wheat beers lately and this seems fairly authentic. The carbonation is more lively and finish is a bit drier and more bitter than the German ones I’ve had but this is alright. A decent version of a Bavarian wheat beer. Given the light body, it would go well with food.

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?

12 ounce bottle from KnB. Pours a murky yellow with a small white head. Nose is banana, yeast, clove. Taste is wheat, banana, and a little citrus. Thin mouthfeel. Comparable to many other beers in this class.

Sask89 (500) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - SEP 1, 2013
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.

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.
