3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle from the LCBO.
Appearance: Pours a
hazy golden yellow with a couple of fingers of dense white head. Good retention but little lacing.
Banana, nutmeg, yeast, allspice, bubble gum.
Creamy with dense carbonation.
Overall: This one was so nice and smooth without being too carbonated. The banana comes through loud and clear in both the aroma and flavour and it is wrapped in yeast and spice notes. I’m not really sure where the Bock part comes into play as there are no Bock characteristics that I could detect.

The beer pours a hazed peach-gold colour with a generous off-white head which lasts. The aroma is wheat, citrus, and bubble gum. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is sweet wheat malt, with hints of coriander and citrus rounding it out.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Good wheats have sort of fallen off my radar, and those I’ve had recently are not too exciting... until this. Straw color pour with clinging white froth. Aroma of yummy yeasties and esters along with some bread and banana. Flavor is unadulterated wheat maltiness with some fruit and tanginess along for the ride. Very smooth finish, and pleasant fading aftertaste. This is one of the best weizens.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Hazy yellow-orange body with a full and foamy white head. Aroma has all you’d expect from a good hefeweizen - banana, yeast, a bit of clove - along with some peachy notes that round things out nicely. Flavour is similar, with a solid hefe at the core, but surrounded by sweet stonefruit nectar and a bit of cotton candy. Body is full and creamy, feels great on the palate. Alcohol comes through a bit in the finish, but is mostly balanced and well integrated. A really fantastic beer.
