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.

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.

On tap. Normal wheat beer appearance with slight clouding. Fruity, spicy aroma. The flavor is a little different, slightly tangy and citrusy. Thin to medium palate. Not bad.

Smells a little funky. Pours cloudy straw with a thin white head. Pretty good flavor for a wheat beer.

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.

On tap @ Islands. Cloudy, nice yellow color.
Served with a lemon slice, wheat was dominated by citrus, but nontheless it was very easy and a great session beer. Nice rich feel, I was suprised at how easy this went down, and down and down...

Little to no retention. Strong notes of bananas and cloves in the aroma and taste.

Beer #1 in a flight. Cloudy whitish yellow. Very light flavor even for a Hefeweizen. No bubble gum in this one. That’s different. It’s not bad, there’s just not much to it.
