COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the classic German hefeweizen style. Bright yellow with lots of haze, this refreshing wheat beer was dry-hopped with Amarillo and Simcoe to create citrusy aromatics alongside classic banana notes. Effervescent with a pleasing dry finish. Pilot versions were called "Hoppy Hefeweizen".

Nice original beer here. Follows the whole white ipa trend and does a better job than most i’ve 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.

GregClow (2901) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle from the brewery. Pours a cloudy bright sunshine-yellow with a large and pillowy white head. Pungent aroma of citrus peel, pineapple, musky hops and lemon oil. Flavour of lychee, lemon peel, pine, unsweetened grapefruit, and a hint of white pepper. Body is crisp with a clean and dry/bitter finish. As others have noted, there ain’t much hefe-ish about this beer, but it’s so bright and tasty that I’m happy to overlook that and give it a great rating anyway.

Tessic (843) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
This Hefe poured a light yellow color, very cloudy. Scents include pineapple (citrus), dough and bread. First sip was a little thin feeling but not in a bad way. Flavors of citrus and grass most predominant. Finish is citrus juicy!

Alpha10 (342) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
2013/04/26 - Pours a hazy bright yellow with a soapy white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is citrus (lemon and grapefruit), floral hops, pine and slight yeast. Taste is lots of citrus up front with an astringent, hoppy an pine aftertaste. Body is medium and effervescent with lots of carbonation and a drying finish. Great summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy gold pour, good lacing. Juicy hoppy aroma. Interesting balance of dank hops, lemon, yeast, banana, wheat, and pepper with the hops winning out. Works for me! Lighter body, lively carbonation. I could drink this all summer.

Ferris (4482) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2013 Draft - Hay, lemon, honey and a little farmhouse funk. Hazy yellow with a thin white head. Crazy hops and the sweetness of the yeast remind me of a Deschutes experimental I once had. Love it completely.

HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2013
On draught at Bar Hop. Very hazy/cloudy light yellow. Very small drool of white head. Pungently grassy aroma, not a lot of sweetness. Taste follows - holy crap that’s bitter, only vaguely hefe-like, more like an ultra dry wit noble hopped to the max. Light body, very astringent, moderately carbonated, longish grassy coating finish. Lively brew.
