COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Is a crisp, refreshing ale perfect for all-around summertime drinking. It has a low hopping rate and high effervescence, with a palate featuring fruity acidity and a clove-like spiciness.

The pour reveals a hazy yellow color with a thin white head. Pleasant aroma of bubble-gum and cloves. Interesting flavor of bubble-gum and cloves, there’s a shy presence of fruity esters. The body is light with an oily texture and gentle carbonation.

Lubiere (10444) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2009
A hazy blonde weizen with a thin white head. Light pleasant banana esters in aroma, cloves, pungeant and interesting. In mouth, a nice clean weizen with light fruityness, more wheaty and oily than expected. Nice offering. On tap at brewpub, July 1, 2009

(Draught) Pours a cloudy pale yellow body with a small off-white head. Aroma of banana, clove, pepper, light florals, and lemon. Flavor of banana, wheat, and clove. Descent Hefe.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2008
Hazy golden. Clean, well-balanced with some banana, vanilla, marshmallow character. Off-dry finish. Yeasty, maybe even coriander accent. Well-made but it didn’t captivate me.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 5, 2007
On tap. Very cloudy yellow pour. Yeasty clove aroma. Husky. Very buttery, harsh flavor. Thin, but still good body from the wheat. Way too much diacetyl. Filling.

On draft at brewpub. Pours a very cloudy, almost opaque, gold with a white head. The aroma is strong of wheat malt and weizen character (banana, soft fruit, cloves, pepper). The flavor follows the nose - a nice dose of fruit and crisp wheat. The finish is crisp, malty with wheat, and somewhat dry. The mouthfeel is strongly carbonated, crisp, and medium in body. Overall, a great, delectable hefeweizen that was deliciously appropriate - both to style and to season.

Sampled with Stegosaurus during our second Boston Tour. Served at Cambridge brewing. Cloudy yellow pour with banana, clove and wheat aroma. A lemon clove, wheaty finish. Not bad at all.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a very hazy, glowing, tangerine-amber color. A frothy, snow white head is large at first but fleeting, leaving soapy clumps to slowly lumber their way back to the surface. Aromatics include bubblegum, fresh wheat, candied orange peels, freshly grated clove and cinnamon. Flavors take more of a turn for the sweet, with notes of candied sugar accompanying the fresh wheat grains, vibrant citrus rinds, and earthy, fall spices. A surprising yet welcomed addition of floral hop bitterness shows on the finish, adding balance. The body is medium to light, with a lively carbonation. Overall, this is a crisp, clean above average Hefe with a bright citrus profile and a lightly spicy, hoppy finish. I enjoyed it.

Sammy (8912) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2009
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Tons of lace that follows a yellow body with noticeable white head. Creamy mouthfeel, clean and refreshing taste. Good example of the style. Fresh aroma.
