COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a brass opalescent blond coloured beer. It is topped by a thick compact foam which sticks to the glass and is sustained by a strong effervescence. Its fragrance is one of cloves with a hint of bananas, all of which is wrapped in an aroma of warm baked bread. Its a light tasting and fruity beer with only a mild flavour of hops. It is a very smooth tasting beer with a touch of acidity.

Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur jaune foncée et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (bananes, agrumes, surtout citron), moyen d’épices (clou de girofle, notes de coriandre et de poivre), léger-moyen de blé avec des petites traces de biscuits et de gomme balloune. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-fort et une texture aux notes crémeuses. Goût de levures fruitées (bananes, léger d’agrumes) et épicées (clou de girofle, traces de coriandre) avec des traces de gomme balloune lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen goût de blé asséchant avec des petites notes de céréales, de biscuits et de pain puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de levures aux notes épicées (traces de poivre). Post-goût moyen et un peun sec, léger-moyen amer de levures fruitées (pelures de bananes, léger zest d’agrumes) et de blé. (automne 2006)

bedainedebiere (501) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2009
Refreshing, of course well-brewed DDC beer. The lemony, slightly spiced, slighty bitter taste is all well-balanced. A very good beer

BitchesBrew (714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2007
[Pint @ the brewpub] Nice wheat aroma-- kind of sweet with some spices in there. Pours a very hazy golden color that almost seems to glow in the light. A very full-flavored hefeweizen, sweet wheat, banana and clove backed up by a strong yeast presence. Not quite as "refreshing" as the usual German Hefe, this is a bit richer in body and flavor. Extremely drinkable. This is yet another outstanding beer from DDC.

Glouglouburp (5998) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2006
Cloudy yellow-blonde body with a large but quickly diminishing white head. The main hefe elements are here (banana aroma, wheaty body) but the intensity is off the chart. This is not a light refreshing hefe. Creamy banana paste with a full haystack packed in a pint. To go along with the not-refreshing theme, the fruitiness (banana and some peach) does not include lemon. This is one thick and filling hefe. They could sell as a hefe concentrate packaged in small frozen cans with the instruction “add two full cans of water to obtain refreshing hefeweizen”.
