Pretty standard wheat beer served with a lemon. I thought this was the best crafted beer out of the three I tried.

On tap at Oggi’s Garden Grove. Pours hazy golden orange with white head. Aromas of banana, lemon, wheat, and bready malts. Flavors of wheat, lemon, banana, and a bit of clove. Crisp and refreshing hefe.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2007 Draft, consumed at Oggi’s Canyon Country 11/5/07. After removing lemon wedge, admired the unfiltered cloudy gold body. No aroma at all. Very little flavor. I only picked up yeasty sweet spice (cloves?) with a bit of banana in the aftertatse. Very subdued: almost nothing there.

Draft at Mission Viejo. True to style German Hefe. They should not serve it with a lemon as stefanje pointed out but just get rid of the lemon or ask the bartander not to put it in. Poured hazy with a half inch head. Yeasty bubblegum and clove flavor dominated. Nice and refreshing. Perfect refresher on a hot summer day.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2007 On Tap at Oggis in Santee CA. They served it with a damn slice of lemon in it. I could not believe it. The lemon ruined the whole experience. Who ever decided that lemeon belongs in Hefe should be burned at the stake--after slow torture.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Oggi’s in Glendale AZ: Cloudy golden pour with a thin white lace head that disappears within minutes. Nothing wrong with this beer, but it lacks any distinctive flavor. Traditional hefe with citrus backing and well carbonated. Not a bad beer, but easy to find a better hefe.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On Tap: One of my favorite Hefeweizens, and it’s brewed right here in good old San Diego. This stuff screams banana, with other flavors and spices blended in. Im surprised the alcohol isn’t higher, because it almost seemed like a double hefeweizen, if there is even a thing. I really like Oggis beers.

Pours hazy. The flavor is dominated by banana then comes a bit of yeast then a hint of spice. The first few sips are nice but by the end of the glass you are tired of the strong banana.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a light gold color with a small white head. Aroma is bananas and cheese. Some spice. Flavor is bananas. Watery body. A run of the mill Hefe. Ok I guess.
