Spab (2801) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
On tap at the Loose Moose. Pours a cloudy pale golden yeloow with decent-sized white head. Aroma is banana, apple, wheat and light clove. Flavour also big on banana and other fruity esters, some wheat malt and solid clove. Average body and carbonation. Decent.

HopsandBolts (191) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2015
On tap at the Ottawa Brewery Market.

Appearance: Pours a dense hazy yellow with a good finger or so of thick white head.

Aroma: Floral aromas, yeast, bit of malt and hops.

Flavours: Flower, yeast and some mandarin orange.

Mouthfeel: 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.

shaynsawchuk (662) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2015
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.

"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. "
