UPDATED: MAY 30, 2007 I’m usually not a fan of lighter beers, but I love this one. Great lemon colored cloudy unfiltered beer. Served on tap at Karl Strauss brewery in Carlsbad. Good medium head with great lacing. A bit of corriander,very little bitterness. Try again and brought rating from 4 to 3.8 skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a small white head which fades quickly. Aroma is of wheat malts, yeast, banana, some cloves, and some faint bubble gum notes. Taste is similar with yeast, wheat, and banana dominating. has a medium body with a slightly watery moutfheel and a semi dry, refreshing finish. overall, a pretty good, above average hefe.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a lemon zest aroma. Taste is crisp and a bit gritty because of the unfiltered beer. A refreshing beer that would be nice on a warm day. A hint of sweetness, possibly vanilla that makes the aftertaste nice and mellow. Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - APR 24, 2006
A very nice suprise, tasted on draft at Strauss Universal city. Much more flavor than I was expecting, nice fruitiness, creamy, nice on the tongue, Good example of an American brewer doing a German style hefe. User29624 (1683) - - FEB 15, 2010
Part of a sampler in San Diego. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of banana, citrus, and cloves. Similar flavor, a light beer. Decent overall.

Draft: @ LAX flight delay to San Diego. Que bueno q encontre esto! Food Pairing: California Pizza Kitchen - Margharita. can8ianben (1577) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2009 Served far too cold and with a huge lemon wedge at California Pizza Kitchen. However after warming slightly I could tell this was a solid offering. Very cloudy yellow. Not transparent at all - almost like an orange smoothy in appearance. A big frothy white head and maybe a little too much carbonation. Perfect balance of sweet/sour citrus notes blended with the classic banana and clove aroma and flavor. Somewhat dry and bitter in the finish, but a delicious beverage none the less.
Rerate: Just had this a second time at Islands Burgers without realizing that I’d already had it. Again served too cold, VERY high carbonation. Some weird off flavors - almost in a cheap homebrew malt kind of way. Going to knock it down a bit. elihapa (1554) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - FEB 17, 2010
Pours gold with a small head. Nose has a strong banana element, mixed in with a touch of plastic. Flavor is vanilla and banana, with mineral aromatics and straw/bread. The dominant flavor is banana and grainy bread, not bad at all. Mouthfeel is refreshing. doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 17, 2010
Pours super cloudy, milky looking, pal yellow with a thin white head that leaves good lace. Smells of bananas and yeast, sweet. Tastes the same. Bananas and yeast sweet, slight honey. Medium, watery body, light carbonation.
