lusikka (7681) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2015
Draught @ Karl Strauss Brewing Co (La Jolla), San Diego, CA. Pours a cloudy bright yellow colour with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, a bit of coriander, sea water and floral notes. Flavour of wheat, husky graininess, floral hops, a bit of saltiness and some yeastiness. Light bodied. Refreshing. Not that complex but very easy-going.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 23, 2010
On tap at LAX May 2009: Pours a hazy golden brass with a well-lacing frothy white head. Aroma of lightly sweet malted wheat and banana esters with a touch of Bavarian hops. Starts with good fullness and finely dissolved carbonation along with light wheaty sweetness, some clove spice and bready yeastiness before a slightly more bitter crisp finish. A pretty good hefeweizen.

Cloudy orange with a medium sized white head and good lacing. Aroma of banana, wheat and doughy. Flavors of banana, grainy and sweet citrus
Decent, but too sweet for a hot day

riversideAK (6103) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2008 A relatively authentic Bavarian style wheat beer. Nice clove, banana, and bubblegum notes. Smooth. Not overly carbonated or heavy. A nice drinkable beer.

ben4321 (5646) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Location: On tap at the The Fish Market in San Diego, 1/5/10

Aroma: Banana, clove, wheat, orange
Appearance: Hazy yellow color
Flavor: German wheat flavor, with banana and spice
Palate: Light-medium, crisp, refreshing
Overall Impression: My first (of 4 from last week) Karl Strauss rating. It was a solid beer, nice outdoor refresher, and that works well in a locale where you can pretty much always sit outside and drink. Fairly typical German style hefe, nice flavors, but nothing super exciting.

jgb9348 (5610) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Hazy golden coloured body with a thick, dense white head. Aroma of pale malt, wheat, coriander seed, curacao and a very fresh yeast note - a touch of sugars too. Light to Meidum-bodied; Creamy, wheatie flavour with a good dose of light spices that leave the mouth very fresh. Aftertaste shows a little alcohol, a little fruit and a nice pungent yeast note. Overall, a respectable german hef with some nice yeast and wheat flavours, but the cool refreshing spice flavour is definitely still noticeable. I sampled this pint on draught at the LAX Terminal 7 location in Los Angeles, California on 23-June-2010.

dwyerpg (5547) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 3, 2008
Smells mediumly of bananas. Flavor is quite wheaty with some coatingness to it that I also don’t like. Much too wheaty for me with a bad aftertaste.
