Tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Full haze golden, weaker foam, spotty lace. Nose is German hefe all the way with banana, bubblegum, pear. Taste is actually very solid with banana dessert, cinnamon, baked pear. Really on the ball hefe here. Could mix this up with the top beers for style.

January 6th, 2012 - I’m not sure if the designation ’Warm Water’ is a self-denigrating jab at the lighter wheat style of this beer, or the proud San Diegan beer culture, but either way, I find it misleading. Deep within this opaque, murky blonde brew is a deep aroma, with brilliant flashes of orange and butternut squash decorating the somewhat regular smell of wheat. The taste is powerfully pushy with wheat, like a wheat thin…or like wheat. Heavy dollops of banana, clove, pepper, vanilla and custard intermingle on a perfectly soft, foamy palate, and edged on by a surprisingly strong alcohol note - surprising for a wheat beer, but not at all surprising when I’m sipping it at Pizza Port Carlsbad. anders37 (27062) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2012

On tap at Carlsbad. A rich fruity nose with dried candies. The flavor is unusual; bubblegum, loads of huge fruit, dry grains, very mellow and easygoing. Quite nice. AmEricanbrew (7011) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Hazy golden color with white foam. Nice banana, clove, mild tart wheat aromas. medium bodied. Sweet banana, tart pale wheat, spicy clove flavors--very tasty iowaherkeye (2804) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - DEC 1, 2011
Phone rate. Tap at PP Carlsbad. Muddy white golden with a small white head, fading to a thick ring and tattered film before long. Lots of ripe banana in the nose some wheat, and a little sulfur and vanilla in the back. I get more clove in the flavor than I got in the nose (which was fairly mild), and there’s still lots of banana. Dry finish with a touch of lemon and vanilla, low bitterness. Mod carbonation with a medium body. A little heavy on the banana, but not a bad US offering. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2011
