Draught at Karl Strauss La Jolla: Hazy orange tinged yellow. Nose of light soapy wheat and light yeast esters. The flavor has a nice body with creamy marshmallow blended with the esters. Finishes light and nice, good. Why is it that these brewpub hefes are a large amoutn better than their other attempts at some styles?

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.

Draught at Karl Strauss La Jolla. Hazy yellow color with bubbly white head that laced the glass. Nice estery aroma and flavor typical of the style. Nose was a bit medicinal, but overall this was a good beer.

Draft. Chunky yeast & wheat nose with a touch of clove. Cloudy yellow/orange beer, frothy suds. Simply, clean wheaty yeasty hefe flavors..some clove. Decent and to style, a style I’ve been enjoying more than usual lately.

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. It’s very crisp, and clean with a low amount of soft carbonation - very refreshing summer session type beer. In the mouth, it’s mostly a banana and caramel taste that finishes with a faint orange rind and leaves a mild bubblegum aftertaste which doesn’t last long.

On tap @ Islands. Cloudy, nice yellow color.
Served with a lemon slice, wheat was dominated by citrus, but nontheless it was very easy and a great session beer. Nice rich feel, I was suprised at how easy this went down, and down and down...

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2006 Tap - This is a nice pleasant hefeweizen. It’s very drinkable, mild citrus flavor. Sweet and smooth while not really being fantastic in any way.
