3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013/06/27 - Pours a cloudy, pale yellow color with a small, fizzy, white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is wheat, citrus (mainly orange) and cloves. Taste is similar to nose with a slightly sour aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium with lots of carbonation and a juicy finish. I found the flavor slightly muted and expected banana esters instead of citrus. Decently executed hefeweizen.

can. pours hazy pale yellow with a decent white head, some retention and lacing. grainy, citrus, pepper, herbs, wheat, fresh cereals, restrained bananas, fresh fruitiness - hint of tropical. average carbonation, light body - some texture, nice grassy-citrusy and dry finish. good mouthfeel and good balance. not your classic hefe, not close to your weihen either (american wheat ale?), but very well executed, quenching and good!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from the LCBO. Pours a hazy golden orange with a bunch of white head that sadly dissipates a bit quickly. Smell is wheat, cloves, and a bit of sweet caramel. Palate is on the lighter side of medium bodied with good carbonation. Taste is not at all what I expected, instead of bananas, it’s oranges. Taste is still good, though a bit sweet and again, oranges?

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Single can from the LCBO. Pours a very cloudy, golden colour with an orange hue. Big frothy head, with decent retention (but not as much as the Krombacher weizen I had last night). Soapy lacing waving around. Malty wheat nose with some light spices and Belgian Ale yeast. Hints of citrus (oranges, lemons). Mild wheat flavours with notes of bananas and very light cloves in the finish. Goes down quite nicely and well-blended all-around. Smooth overall.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a pretty good weiss. Much more traditional than any I’ve tried in awhile. Not extremely potent in any once flavor, but exhibits that character you would expect of a weiss in moderation: cloves, banana, wheat, and coriander.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Completely surprised by an Ontario brewer that I picked up this week from the LCBO for its quality in this style as this province is known for its reverse Midas touch on craft breweries.
A - Excellent frothy head which remained about one inch for the entire time to consume it (10 min). Cloudy and slight orange tinge which is consistant with this style.
S - Cloves, banana, and citrus aroma as described were pleasantly present. Hops are subtle.
T - slightly sweet with sour overtones from the citrus. The coriander, orange, and cloves come out on the palate which I greatly enjoyed. Wheat taste with some bread-like flavours.
M - Higher carbonation than I like for Weissbiers but defiantly not a point of contention. Medium bodied that ends with a creamy and slightly sour taste.
Overall: If you like Hoegaarden, you’ll love this. I am defiantly purchasing this again and will try to replicate it in my monthly all-grain home brewing.

Draught at Barhop, Toronto
Hazy deep blond color. The aroma is a bit rubbery, the flavor is breadish, the mouthfeel is smooth, low bitterness, and short final.
