4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 500 ml bottle. Very cloudy bright yellow pour with a thick fluffy white head. The aroma is of incredibly juicy citrusy hops. A lot of tropical mango and a little bit of peppery/noble spiciness as well. Fairly light esters but a touch of bubble gum and some lingering fruitiness. Really inviting aroma - bright fruit and juicy citrus with some nice wheaty character as well. Itís got a solid balance of hops and yeast. A really great take on the style - I could drink this all day long.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Wvrst. Pours opaque yellow with a creamy, white head. Aroma of pine, yeast, black pepper. Taste is quite dry up front, with a medium body carrying a surprising amount of hop bitterness. The finish is pretty clean. I dislike the inverted character of these hoppy hefeweizens, but this one is probably the best.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours murky (translucent) straw yellow with a touch of ochre; the head is off-white and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: pineapple, grapefruit-zest, and slight mango. The taste is light sweet that finishes medium bitter; there are notes of: grapefruit, pineapple, biscuit, and fresh wheat (on the finish). The palate is medium-light bodied, has medium carbonation, and a long bitter wheat finish. Overall, itís alright.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap at the brewery. Cloudy yellow colour. iím floored by how muted the aroma is considering the style and how it was made, but, shows notes honey and melon and some citrus hoppy note. Bitter on the uptake with banana, yeast and a somewhat metallic note. shows some leafy barky bitterness. Considering the style iíve had better.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from brewery. Hazy yellow pour. High delicate carbonation, marshmallow white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, orange, grapefruit, yeast, banana, a little pepper and floral notes. Delightful. A little chalky, medium sweetness on the body. Refreshing citrus bitterness on the finish. Itís generally light an refreshing with a lovely balanced complexity. Very nice variation on a classic style.

On tap at Bellwoods. Super-cloudy bright yellow. Banana, spice, and a grassiness dominate the aroma. Taste has spice, banana, some pine, alcohol, and lots of lemon in the finish, making it slightly bitter and sour. Light body. A hoppy twist on a hefe thatís not bad!

Nice original beer here. Follows the whole white ipa trend and does a better job than most iíve tried so far. Pours cloudy password good lacing and head. Citrus hops on nose with some florals and yeast. Lively carbonation. Finishes slightly bitter with an almost minty tang. On tap at Bellwoods.
