A slight bit of banana in the aroma. Flavor has a strong amount of fruit. Definitely has some German characteristics. A respectable wheat beer.

Draught at the brewpub. Hazy yellow with a creamy white head. Wheat, lemon, clove, and unripe banana aroma. The flavor is in the spicy side with some banana, light grainy wheat and a sweet finish. Creamy, almost full body. Nice flavors, but just too sweet to be really refreshing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub in San Clemente. Pours a very hazy, darker orange body with a small, fluffy white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a good amount of soft lacing. Very full and sweet aroma of wheat, bananas, bubble gum, zesty lemons and oranges, and yeast. Lots of spices too giving it even more of a zing. Flavor is similar. Lots of banana and spices with a zesty citrus. Finishes malty, but spicy at the same time. Full bodied, creamy, and very smooth before a subtle dry finish. Overall, a very impressive wheat. Quite tasty.
