COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The shack at Windansea beach is an iconic part of the San Diego landscape, almost as much as the fiercely guarded waves that break upon its shores. Every so often a winter storm washes the shack away, but like clockwork, a salty-haired local hero resurrects it. It’s tradition, and Windansea Wheat is a beer created with this tradition in mind. Brewed true to the Bavarian style, this beer is served hazy and unfiltered. A closely guarded strain of Hefeweizen yeast creates that unmistakable aroma of banana, clove, and a hint of vanilla. At Windansea beach, you may not find many friendly faces out in the water if you haven’t paid your dues. But this Windansea Wheat’s got your name on it.

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.
