look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

When I read the other reviews on this beer I felt that I had a duty to perform. I have had a lot of different hefe's before: Bavarian, American, etc., and this is my favorite one so far. The beer is the cloudiest hefe I have ever seen. It is a light yellow/orange color. The smell is sweet. The taste has hints of banana and vanilla. The beer is only lightly carbonated and therefore has little head. The traditional way of drinking a hefe is with a lemon, but this one is great with or without. Everyone has different tastes and I am only sharing mine. However, if you have never had this beer before, I think it is at least worth trying.

Serving type: on-tap

Smell: I got a lot of banana in the smell.

Taste: A delicious sweetness. I get a lot of banana and vanilla notes. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel: Extremely smooth.

Drinkability: My favorite Hef I’ve ever had. Windansea Wheat is a hidden gem in the Karl Strauss beer line-up.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Review from notes.

Appearance: Pale cloudy yellow color, decent white head, some lacing

Smell: Banana and clove yeast, bready, and some fuit

Taste: Wheat, spice, lemon, bread, banana, and yeast

Mouthfeel: Medium body, full carbonation

Overall: Not a bad Hefeweizen, but not a standout for the style. Good if you are in the mood for one.

Serving type: on-tap
