3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

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

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice cloudy appearance, with a wheat/banana aroma. Wheat, banana, slight smoke and some sweet spice came through nicely. Very good and refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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?

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
