look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Bright yellow/orange with a terrific tiny bubble head.

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.

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.
