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.

On tap at KS in La Jolla. Hazy yellow with minimal white head. Banana, vanilla, some grains. Thin, mild, sweet, well carbonated, dry, bit of vegetable on the finish. Ok.

draft: Gold in color with haze and not much head developed from the pour. Nose was light. Flavor was of moderate amount of wheat and small spicy note of clove. Fairly decent.

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.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow color with very little head. Light, malty aroma with some lemon zest as well. NIce, wheaty taste with lemon and malt. Nice balance and easy to drink. Refreshing.
