Wittales (679) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Appearance was cloudy gold with diminishing creamy white fizzy 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are banana, clove, bubblegum, soft grain, and cream. Taste are soft clove, wheat, banana, bubblegum with hints of pear and lemon. Palate was soft fizzy CO2 with light body, then fruity traditional smooth finish. A good American Hefe, summer delight.

on tap at Karl Strauss, C+ beer at the most. Their pilsener that I sampled alongside was much better.

Nice cloudy appearance, with a wheat/banana aroma. Wheat, banana, slight smoke and some sweet spice came through nicely. Very good and refreshing.

ARH (663) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2014
On tap served into a weizen glass. Initially, I thought I picked up notes of blueberry, peach, and even some yeast on the nose, but after awhile, the standard banana and clove dominant, with a hint of lemon. It pours a hazy pale with a thick, creamy white head that retains well and leaves lots of micro bubble lace. the beer is a blend of medium-light sweetness and a very light bitterness along with a trace amount of sour citrus. The beer is light bodied with a thin, watery texture. It kinda has the feel of a watered down lemonade. Itís very crisp, and clean with a low amount of soft carbonation - very refreshing summer session type beer. In the mouth, itís mostly a banana and caramel taste that finishes with a faint orange rind and leaves a mild bubblegum aftertaste which doesnít last long.

Ya ya ya. On tap. Itís a citrus-lemon-spicy-orangey-cloudy type wheat beer. Light and for the sunshine only. You know what they taste like... right?

Appearance: traditional average gold color, very hazy, has a small off white head Aroma: very funky, banana, yeast, bread, very aromatic Taste: lemon, some light bitterness, very strong banana and bread, Palate: average to soft carbonation, very nice hefe froth, banana mouthfeel, minimal aftertaste Overall: one of the better hefeweizen beers I've had, very strong flavors and aromas, highly recommended, from a draft pour which I'm sure explains the lack of head ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle from KnB. Pours a murky yellow with a small white head. Nose is banana, yeast, clove. Taste is wheat, banana, and a little citrus. Thin mouthfeel. Comparable to many other beers in this class.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 1, 2010
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.

Wombata (469) - Kobe, JAPAN - MAY 12, 2013
Reefered bottle. 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.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - FEB 7, 2004
On tap. Normal wheat beer appearance with slight clouding. Fruity, spicy aroma. The flavor is a little different, slightly tangy and citrusy. Thin to medium palate. Not bad.
