While I cannot comment on this beer’s nose, palate, etc., I DO know that after spending two weeks in Germany and becoming quite fond of the local brauhaus’ weissbier, this tasted JUST LIKE what’ I’d been drinking in Germany when I had it at the restaurant after I’d returned. This beer is neck-and-neck with Paulaner Hefeweizen is terms of quality. It’s THAT good!

On tap at the Costa Mesa location - Pours hazy yellow with a ring of white head. Nose is classic banana/clove...wow, nailed it! Taste is good, but not as pungent--more mineral, less banana. Finishes sweet with muted clove. Full, fluffy body.

Appearance: traditional average gold color, very hazy, has a small off white head Aroma: very funky, banana, yeast, bread, very aromatic Taste: lemon, some light bitterness, very strong banana and bread, Palate: average to soft carbonation, very nice hefe froth, banana mouthfeel, minimal aftertaste Overall: one of the better hefeweizen beers I've had, very strong flavors and aromas, highly recommended, from a draft pour which I'm sure explains the lack of head ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

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.

Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with thin bubbly white head that leaves light lace. Aroma and taste of dead on German wheat, big banana and spicy esters. Can see why it won.
