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.

On tap at karl Strauss Santa Fe brewery. Aroma of banana, wheat malt and bubblegum. Some subtle yeasty aroma as well. Appearance is cloudy opaque bright golden yellow with white quickly disappearing head. Little lacing. Flavor of banana and wheat malt. Banana is well balanced and restrained. Slight bite in the aftertaste from yeast or perhaps hops? Finish is a bit disappointing in otherwise tasty beer. Mouthfeel is light body, a bit watery. Overall - very drinkable summer beer but doesnt strike me as exceptional

Tap, downtown. Some yeastiness in the nose. Fairly dry. Graininess seems to dominate along with a little spice.

On tap at Karl Strauss at the La Jolla location (San Diego, CA): Pours out a cloudy pale yellow. Nose is of candied banana and some clove. Flavor of whole wheat banana bread and fruity bubble gum. Carbonated throughout the feel with an added milk shake texture. Lemon zest finish. Very sweet. Drinkability: Tastes really commercial. But close to solid for the style they’re presenting. Pairing: Light salad over garlic seasoned pita bread. Rebuy: Probably not. #313 on 01032010, DG. blutt59 (6576) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2013

Pours a hazy golden with sparse head. Light aroma somewhat of wet leather and old fruits. Odd taste - hard to place the flavors. Apricot / pear? Average. Nothing special.

Taster at La Jolla location. Pours a heavily clouded golden yellow colour with a thin white head. Aroma is of banana and clove, with a little yeast. Taste has no bitterness and a muted sweetness. Light body, thin on the palate and standard carbonation for a wheat beer. Overall a fine wheat beer, but nothing special.
