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.

Pale orange coloured, cloudy. Medium bodied. Lively with obvious banana type esteryness. Sweetish. A good thirst quencher.

Lubiere (9939) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2009
A very hazy golden yellow weizen with a thin creamy white head. A lemony weizen with cloves and maple. Medium bodied. Strong hopping for the style. On tap at DDC, March 2007.

Sammy (8581) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
Hits the style but tad too much sweetness and banana. Banana yellow colour without a head. Also somewhat thin for style.

MartinT (7797) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2011 A 10-pound banana bread…Spicy yeast develops vibrant clovey phenols in the nose, before the sip reveals plenty of milky banana sweetness...Drinkability is reduced by the portly body, but this remains a delicious Weizen experience...Unless you’re in the mood for a lighter example of the style...

jercraigs (7790) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 2014-08-23. Orange body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is sweet, mild fruity esters. Flavour is similarly quite sweet, estery. Smooth average bodied palate, low carbonation. Feels a bit muddled all around. 6/3/6/3/12 On tap at DDC Tap Takeover Event, Volo, Toronto

Old rating, pre-2003 Slightly hazy but fairly clear yellow body. Slight citrusy aroma with hints of yeast and banana. 6/3/8/3/12 On tap at the brewpub, Montreal

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2011
On tap at Dieu du Ciel. Pours a hazed wheaty gold with a thin white head. Sweet wheat, toast, light banana. Gently sweet, more light banana flavors, yeasty. Cool and clean. Spicy yeast on the gums and lingering banana notes.

Radek Kliber (6406) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 15, 2004
Wheat, clean spicy aroma mixed with orange peel and ripe sweet banana. Cloudy gold wheat beer, small creamy head. This beer got creamy smooth body. Banana at front and bitter finish. Interesting concept. Such bitterness made this beer les clean and drinkable.

Rastacouere (6126) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2004
Shining gold pour with a light veil. Head is white, 1-inch tall, frothy. Stronger than average aroma. If they did can bananas, I assume it would smell a bit like this. It comes out slightly lactic with cinnamon and cloves afterthoughts. Sweet banana/mango palate with an honest bitter kick. Plenty of mouthfeel, an effervescent lemon pie. Pretty good for the style I found.

Glouglouburp (6007) - 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”.
