On tap at Gordon Biersch in Burbank, CA.
Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, wheat, yeast, spices, and a slight soapy aroma. Taste is much the same with spice and earthy flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that seems somewhat unrefined in the aromas and flavors.
Serving type: on-tap

3.65/5 rDev +0.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a twelve ounce weizen glass from the bottle.
Color is clear straw gold, meaning they have partially filtered this beer. More of a kristalweizen. Small white head.
Smell: Not that impressive. Not the same level of bananas, but clove, fresh wheat, sugar. It passes as a hefe, but barely.
Taste: Much better. Has a smooth, creamy taste, with a small amount of banana, some clove, minimal citrus, and a good portion of wheat malt. The yeast is filtered out of this brew, so realistically it would and could be far better with that left in.
Mouthfeel: Not nearly as creamy as German hefes. Possibly due to the filtration. Without the filtration, this beer would earn far higher marks - to be honest, it's actually a Kristalweizen.

Had this at Reagan National Airport. No fruit in glass.
A - Pours a cloudy golden color, one finger white head receded to a thin layer on top. Minimal lacing.
S - Citrus, slight banana and even slighter clove.
T - Good wheaty taste, slight banana and clove and a little orange. Would give it a 3.75 in this category if I could.
M - Creamy and smooth, good carbonation.
O - I have quite frequently been disappointed by their beer but this is one of the better GB offerings, which is good because I like their food. Could and would drink multiples. Would give it a 3.75 in this category if I could.
