On tap at Karl Strauss at the La Jolla location (San Diego, CA): Pours out a cloudy pale yellow. Nose is of candied banana and some clove. Flavor of whole wheat banana bread and fruity bubble gum. Carbonated throughout the feel with an added milk shake texture. Lemon zest finish. Very sweet. Drinkability: Tastes really commercial. But close to solid for the style theyíre presenting. Pairing: Light salad over garlic seasoned pita bread. Rebuy: Probably not. #313 on 01032010, DG.

Taster at La Jolla location. Pours a heavily clouded golden yellow colour with a thin white head. Aroma is of banana and clove, with a little yeast. Taste has no bitterness and a muted sweetness. Light body, thin on the palate and standard carbonation for a wheat beer. Overall a fine wheat beer, but nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: classic wheat, banana, and clove
Palate: tingling attack of carbonation.
Flavor: Like the aroma. Finishes with a touch of bitterness.
Comment: Iíve had a number of German wheat beers lately and this seems fairly authentic. The carbonation is more lively and finish is a bit drier and more bitter than the German ones Iíve had but this is alright. A decent version of a Bavarian wheat beer. Given the light body, it would go well with food.
