Draft at Karl Strauss. Cloudy yellow straw color, with a white head. Banana, wheat, quite sweet, light apple, and a bit of citrus. Decent.

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 they’re presenting. Pairing: Light salad over garlic seasoned pita bread. Rebuy: Probably not. #313 on 01032010, DG.

o_Merlin_o (172) - California, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Pours a hazy golden with sparse head. Light aroma somewhat of wet leather and old fruits. Odd taste - hard to place the flavors. Apricot / pear? Average. Nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sask89 (409) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - SEP 1, 2013
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.

alexanderj (3297) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2010
On tap; poured a murky, ruddy gold with not much white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, grain, and bread. Flavor had something strange about it. Wheat, banana, not much sweetness, with some grainy breadiness. An off finish.
