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.

Very hazy yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma had big notes of banana. Yeasty spice and clove followed underneath. The flavor continued the banana and yeasty clove flavors. Also notes of wheaty lemon on the finish. The finish was dry. Lively mouthfeel with a slight CO2 bite.

ben4321 (3784) - 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.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Draught at Karl Strauss La Jolla. Hazy yellow color with bubbly white head that laced the glass. Nice estery aroma and flavor typical of the style. Nose was a bit medicinal, but overall this was a good beer.
