Mild and aromatic sort of wheat beer. A pleasant quaff with lighter flavors than the usual fruit and clove bombs. Tangy and slightly spicy. Mellow and smooth down the throat.

Maybe this is a better version of the Hefeweizen for quaffing, but it has to compete with so many lucious German style brews. But lets call it a southern calif hefe. On tap at Panama 66 in Balboa Park. (377 characters)

On tap at Whole Foods in Venice, CA.

Pours a murky honey orange-yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, wheat, and slight spice aromas. Taste is much the same with wheat, fruit, and slight spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable but the aromas and flavors on this one are pretty subtle to me.

Serving type: on tap. (633 characters)

A hefeweizen paired with warm winner always wins, right? Combining that with a casino theme on the can's label and I think I had found a true winner. On to the beer:

Sparking bubbles run through the body of this slightly cloudy blonde beer. On top rests two finger's worth of head, which leaves spotty lace around. The beer smells like a watery hefeweizen. The nutty, spicy, and banana characters are there, but light in character. In fact, I was thinking of the watery character as I drank it. The beer has a decent taste, bringing a modest note of esters, banana, and a kiss of spice. Not intense, and it rides in a light and watery body.

The end result ends up as mediocre. (679 characters)

Pretty good hefe. Light body, great smell, taste was not to heavy but just right for a hot summer day; light and refreshing. Can looked awesome. Poured into a pint glass, heavy head, great tasting! (200 characters)

On tap at Mother Earth in Vista. Very cloudy and heavy looking in the glass. Has the usual Hefe aromas/flavors, but just a bit too light on the nose and taste. Having had SN Kellerweis the day before, I couldn't help but compare the two. This just seemed a bit weaker to me overall, however, still a decent beer. (312 characters)
