COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Hopaweizen plays on the elegant banana and bubblegum character of a traditional German Wheat Beer, then adds to it a clean and refreshing hop character from start to finish. Bright and zesty Citra and NZ Hallertau hops were added to the boil to add more flavour and a touch of cleansing bitterness. Then, the beer was gently dry-hopped with a new hop variety, Maderina, imparting soft orange and tropical aromas. The result is a balance of juicy fruit flavour and a brisk hop sensation that finish quick and refreshing.

Cloudy golden pour with a thin white head. The aroma has a lot of banana and some soft citrus as well. Assertive hoppiness and a bit of lingering spice. It doesn’t have as much citrus hoppiness as I was expecting but it’s there. A bit of alcoholic heat as well but not too bad. Slightly herbal/fruity hop charge. Nice.

Bottle from beer academy. Hazy light brown, delicate white head. High carbonation. Aroma of yeast, mango, pineapple, banana, pepper and alcohol. Light body for the "wheatie" character. I little hot considering it’s only 5.8%. Otherwise, an enjoyably balanced bittersweetness. Refreshing.

Draught at ’The Rhino Summer Beer Festival 2013’. Pours a murky gold with a small diminishing frothy white head. Nice aroma of Belgian yeast, citrus, hops and plenty of herbs. Flavour is yeasty, herbal and hoppy. Medium bodied. Really good, a nice Summer beer and one of the of the fest.

Lubiere (9765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2013
A hazed blonde weizen with a thin lacing frothy off white head. In aroma, banana, citruy hops and cloves, fruity esters. In mouth, a nice banana malt with peppery notes, floral and citrus hops, nice.

solidfunk (3658) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Very nice. Reminds me of the Brooklyn-Schneiders collaboration. Great hoppy head with light banana and clove. Average carbonation. Cloudy orange pour with good head and lacing. Bitter and light sour finish. Good stuff. On tap at Rhino summer fest.

Sammy (8382) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2013
A lot of yeast up front in aroma and taste, bulks up the body. When warm, getting the opposite effect: hops and then the yeast. Lacy. Interesting but certainly not the Brooklyn/Schneiderweiss version. Good drinkability.

Spab (2286) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2013
625 ml bottle from brewery. Pours a hazy orange colour with average-sized, lasting white head. Aroma is very lemony with spice, apple and barnyard funk. Flavour is quite lemony with apple and other fruit, modest clove and some yeasty funkiness. Modest bitterness in finish. Decent.
