On tap at beer stand in Disney. Thanks again to Ratebeerians, for the alert on this being the only semidecent beer in the place. I opted for the slice of orange. Very hazy, somewhat pale, constant head made it look nice. Big banana nose, once you get past the orange. Palate is sour yet dry and astringent, very carbonated in a good way. A very solid German-style hefe.

Draft at Black Angus. My favorite of all the Karl Strauss I have tried. Cloudy yellow color with a decent head. Citrus aromas and flavors. Very smooth mouthfeel.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2007 I’m usually not a fan of lighter beers, but I love this one. Great lemon colored cloudy unfiltered beer. Served on tap at Karl Strauss brewery in Carlsbad. Good medium head with great lacing. A bit of corriander,very little bitterness. Try again and brought rating from 4 to 3.8

A very nice suprise, tasted on draft at Strauss Universal city. Much more flavor than I was expecting, nice fruitiness, creamy, nice on the tongue, Good example of an American brewer doing a German style hefe.

Pours gold with a small head. Nose has a strong banana element, mixed in with a touch of plastic. Flavor is vanilla and banana, with mineral aromatics and straw/bread. The dominant flavor is banana and grainy bread, not bad at all. Mouthfeel is refreshing.

Pours super cloudy, milky looking, pal yellow with a thin white head that leaves good lace. Smells of bananas and yeast, sweet. Tastes the same. Bananas and yeast sweet, slight honey. Medium, watery body, light carbonation.
