3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Cask at beerbistro] Dry-hopped version. Pours a murky orange-peach colour along with a spare diminishing white head. Aroma is hempy, citrusy and fruity along with wheat and spices -- it’s a bit weird. Watery flavour follows. Average bodied. Just O.K.

Poured a clear yellowish gold with a frothy white head. Aroma of banana and cloves with some bubblegum. Taste was much of the same all in balance and easy to drink. Nice easy drinking German hefe!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Ottawa Brewery Market.
Appearance: Pours a
dense hazy yellow with a good finger or so of thick white head.
Floral aromas, yeast, bit of malt and hops.
Flower, yeast and some mandarin orange.
Moderately thick with lots of carbonation.
Overall: Not a bad Hefeweizen. It’s not my favourite in this style but is quite drinkable. The mandarin orange is noticeable most prominently in the after taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650 mL bottle. Pours pale, barely straw and hazed, a thin cap of white. Big yeast on the nose, apple, lemon, banana, clove. Thick with wheaty texture yet easy drinking, light bodied, verging on thin, and above average carbonation. Mild grainy sweetness and a hint of tart. My favorite from them thus far.
