Hazy golden pour, big, thick, white head. Straight up german hefe nose, bananas, cloves, and grassy wheat, and some solid piney hops. The hefe similarities end at the look and aroma. Flavour is green, bitter hops. Pine resins mixed with malted wheat. Medium to high bitter finish.

Pours a very cloudy dark golden colour with a large rocky white head leaving good lace up the glass. Aroma is fruity, citrus, bready, notes of banana, and clove. Flavour is citrus, mild bitterness, bready, tropical fruits, yeast, sweet and then dry. Good take on a wheat beer though not my favourite style.

Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a cloudy orange with a bright white head and a bunch of lace. Aroma of wheat, yeast passionfruit, sweet tropical hops, slight sourness and a few floral notes. Taste is wheat, yeast, tropical fruits and goes from sweet to dry. Bunch of stuff going on in this one pretty decent overall.

Of all the trend of hoppy hefeweizens I’ve had lately this is probably the least impressive. More of a wheat ale than a very hoppy beer. Pours cloudy blond with ok head and lacing. Average carbonation. Some aroma of banana and only the slightest hops. On tap at Barhop.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(On draught at Bryden’s, Toronto ON, June 14th 2013) Pours a very cloudy yellow with a fluffy/ white head that didn’t last. Aroma has fairly restrained citrus hops that weren’t particularly bitter/pithy (NZ style) and a little fruit over top of a strong core of banana, a bit of clove, herbal notes and some wheat malt. Hopping doesn’t over-power the hefe character. On the palate there is some bright citrus and tropical fruit juiciness to augment the yeast, banana, wheat, bubblegum and spice of the hefe. Moderately sweet to start, but a decent bitterness for the style builds and it finishes dry with hops and powdery yeast. Medium body, fairly heavy prickly carb but fairlly on-style. Good weizen with the hop character adding to the experience without overpowering it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy straw yellow with a big pillowy white top. Aroma is astringent floral and citrus hop with wheat. Taste is bright citrus and floral hops with wheat chewiness. Not a bad beer but not their best.
