3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Nice cloudy gold with small head that subsides to ring. Slight banana aroma. Mild to medium carbonation. Clean tasting but just a hint of breadyness and banana. Very nicely brewed but kind of meh.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Medium golden, slightly hazy, average white head. Aroma is sweet and wheaty, with low spice. Palate is much the same. How the fuck does this score so high? This has MINIMAL classic hefe character at best. Barely any spicy yeast esters, barely any classic banana fruit esters, no bubblegum, no creamy mouthfeel, no towering merangue of a head. The fact that this scores in the top percentile for style is an insult to the excellent German hefeweizens out there. Maybe its better on tap? It would have to be a completely new beer experience from what I just had.

Pours an extremely cloudy golden colour, with a thick creamy white head. Lighter aroma, with pronounced banana and clove scents. Taste is a light sweetness throughout. Light body, thin on the palate and a little under-carbonated. Overall an excellent wheat beer.

On draft. Pours hazy yellow with thick, frothy white head. Aroma of bread, yeast, cereal, banana, clove. Hearty taste, notes of sweetness. Clean and light. Not terribly distinct.

Great choice for those looking for a wheat beer that’s not too wheaty. Fresh and clean taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
473ml can from wilco. 5.3% abv on the can. Cloudy lemony-golden-yellow pour, white head which fades quickly and leaves no lace, odd for a hefe. Aroma has clove and lemony notes, light banana. Taste is lemony, clovey, soft and quick banana sweetness, some tanginess, wheat malt. Dryish end, lingering wheat. Light mouthfeel, finely carbonated. A pleasant weisse.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Victory Cafe, Toronto tap: Pours a proper look for a hefe: hazy gold with a frothed up head. Aroma is lightly banana and clove. Taste is pretty much the same. This is not an adventerous weissbier, but it is one that is supremely well made. The sweetness is well controled. The body is the perfect consistancy. Everything is quite right.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lata. Hazy golden colour, medium nice white head. Fruity banan spiced wheata roma. Good mouthfeel. Pleasant sweet like flavour of fruity banana, wheat, bit spice, light acid (in a good way). Pleasant mild to medium bitterness.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 This is Toronto’s culinary gift to the world. I’ve yet to try a wheat beer that comes close. It’s all about the balance here, and there’s no reaching into the air for the smell and flavour lurking behind everything: like other reviewers have said, it’s bananas and cloves. That’s it. This is what they serve at the ACC in heaven.
NOTE: This was one of my first reviews; will re-rate next time I visit Toronto.

Can from LCBO. Cloudy yellow. Funky yeasty citrusy aroma. Pretty nice taste with citrus hints, and lots of yeast. Slightly sour finish. Good for the style, but not my favourite style.
