2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Draft: Pizza Port in San Clemente, CA) This is a beer for the patrons who don’t like the taste of beer; The flavor is very light, thin, and extremely watery; Lightly spicy, very little sweetness, damn, there’s just nothing here to talk about; I can’t pan the flavor because it’s so light and inoffensive, you can’t say it tastes bad; The nose is citrusy, sour and spicy with a slight bubblegum; Very pale yellow color and fairly hazy, but this looks like watery lemonade; White head is small on the pour and fades to a small rim quickly [NOTE: The beer menu lists both a T-Street Wheat (Bavarian/American) and a T-Street Hefeweizen (Bavarian). The bartender said they’re both the same beer, but the descriptions are different, so we might be combining ratings for two different beers with this single Ratebeer entry...]

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Carlsbad: Dense thick cloudy orangey appearance, minimal head formation (Interesting to see all the comments below that it was clear, looks like they took care of it now .) Strong yeasty aroma, pear, banana and clove spice. Sweet well spiced clove flavor, light pear second half, not much in the finish. Pretty mild for Pizza Port.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light yellow "unfiltered?". This was clearer than most filtered beers I have seen. Full wheat aroma with decent lacing throughout. Hint of banana with a quite yeasty finish.

Definitely not unfiltered looking like everyone else has said. Pours a clear yellow, with a yeasty nose and hints of coriander-like spices. Overall, not very impressive but it does fit the profile of an American Wheat well. Slightly watery finish. Drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
If this is unfiltered, I'm Samuel Adams. This beer poured as clear as a Mountain Dew. Whatever. Not that yeasty, though I'd say it's part German hefe and part American Wheat based on the taste. Fairly flavorful, but I'm still miffed it's a Kristal wheat.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Overall disappointment. First it poured crystal clear even though it was touted as unfiltered. Second it had a corny flavor to it that was just unsettling. Could never really get into it so I just moved on.

This brew is listed as an unfiltered wheat, but it poured clear yellow. When I asked the bartender about it, he said that the beer was brewed before the place opened & since it took a bit longer to open than planned, all the yeast settled to the bottom. It has a nice banana nose and a clean, crisp flavor
