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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 4, 2006
Draught at Karl Strauss La Jolla: Hazy orange tinged yellow. Nose of light soapy wheat and light yeast esters. The flavor has a nice body with creamy marshmallow blended with the esters. Finishes light and nice, good. Why is it that these brewpub hefes are a large amoutn better than their other attempts at some styles?

Sampled at GABF 2015. In the tasting glass was cloudy gold with a white head. Nose of banana and clove. Medium body. Favor is classic here with the banana an clove you would expect in abundance. Finishes with the clove spice. Excellent.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4328) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 1, 2016
Karl Strauss Wind and Sea Wheat 5.1% 12 IBU A cloudy gold that looks like pineapple juice with a tangy citrus and wheat aroma. Medium bodied with a raspy carbonation the taste is very sweet cloves that almost verges on cream soda and tangy fruit. A middle of the road wheat beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
