"The summer has arrived and this seasonal will do the trick. Although their patio has yet to open (June 25th) :p Info from my very informative server: style hefeweizen, german wheat, 4.8%, served with slice of lemon. No head whatsoever. Mouthfeel a bit sour and tingly at first (might try without lemon next time) but pretty smooth afterwards. A very hazy light orange appearance, cannot see through. No lacing. Good for humid type weather, quite refreshing. "

Metalchopz (2320) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 18, 2013
Summer seasonal, still available for winter (February 2013). Pours a hazy golden colour with a warm cap and decent wavy lacing. Belgian Ale yeast aromas with notes of bananas and wheat. Pretty much the same for the taste. The mouthfeel is slightly creamy. Refreshing, easy-going, summer ale. Glad I could try it !

4 oz sample at National Capital Craft Beer Festival. 17AU12.

App.: Cloudy deep golden, small off-white head. Aroma: Pretty heavy on the banana, light clove notes, a touch of sulfur, a little wheat/grain, so-so. Palate: Medium body, light, creamy effervescence. Flav.: Quite grainy, a little citrus, less banana and clove, some hop edge; dry with more bitterness than expected.
