Karl Strauss Wind and Sea Wheat 5.1% 12 IBU A cloudy gold that looks like pineapple juice with a tangy citrus and wheat aroma. Medium bodied with a raspy carbonation the taste is very sweet cloves that almost verges on cream soda and tangy fruit. A middle of the road wheat beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rating #1509 - 16.03.2015 - On tap @Moray’s Lounge (Catamaran Hotel) .Pours a hazy, golden orange colour with a frothy, white head that fades fairly quickly to a foamy ring. Aroma is yeast, banana bread, and a floral whiff. Taste is very much a bready, banana flavour with a spicy/herbal note lingering into a smooth finish. Medium carbonation. Mouthfeel is clean and superb. Excellent.

Sampled at GABF 2015. In the tasting glass was cloudy gold with a white head. Nose of banana and clove. Medium body. Favor is classic here with the banana an clove you would expect in abundance. Finishes with the clove spice. Excellent.
