While I cannot comment on this beer’s nose, palate, etc., I DO know that after spending two weeks in Germany and becoming quite fond of the local brauhaus’ weissbier, this tasted JUST LIKE what’ I’d been drinking in Germany when I had it at the restaurant after I’d returned. This beer is neck-and-neck with Paulaner Hefeweizen is terms of quality. It’s THAT good!

On tap at the Costa Mesa location - Pours hazy yellow with a ring of white head. Nose is classic banana/clove...wow, nailed it! Taste is good, but not as pungent--more mineral, less banana. Finishes sweet with muted clove. Full, fluffy body.

airrick2003 (850) - Louisiana, USA - NOV 13, 2014
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

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

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.
