Bouteille de 330 ml, acheté le 14/7/08 au LCBO de Summerhill (Toronto). Jaune blachie pale, petit collet. Arome très parfumé d’herbe doux, blé savonneux. Goût de de blé légé avec une touche d’agrume, un peu de mente qui reste dans la bouche. Tres intéressant!

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2008 bottle. interesting aroma, some mint or other herb. smooth feel, wheat and slight fruit taste. light body makes it an easy drink. overall not too impressed however, this could have been more present in taste, aroma and feel.

Definitely not the usual. Very pale straw, quickly fizzing out head, candied citrus peel aroma with notes of mint. Body is incredibly soft, with mild carbonation -- this ain’t packing snow. Banana and pink bubblegum in the finish, although the middle flavours are more wheaty and dry. There is something distinctly Alpine about it, and krauterliquors come to mind somewhere in there. Worth a try, but not sure I’d drink it again.

Thanks to ghawener. Drank it during Eurocup final 2008. Sorry ghawener. A nice brew, I thought it was a Hefeweizen, but guess not. Don´t really know what is a spice/herb/vegetable. Any way, I really enjoyed it, it was spicy with some lemon undertones.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2008
Aroma is wheat, spice and a hint of banana, hazy yellow, small firm white head, lots of carbonation. Tastes of wheat, a trace of banana, spice is subtle. Light bodied, balanced, very easy drinking, refreshing. Great little beer, very cool bottle.

Bottle 0.33 l. Yellow haziness, ultrapersistent creamy head. Honey, candy, perfume, yeast nose. Candy, honey, wheat, melon, some unidentified herbs maybe. Tasty, in-your-face, candyish American style weizen.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2008
0.33l bottle, 5.0% a/v Pours a light murky colour with an average looking white head. Smells nice and spicy, bananas and peach, very appetizing smell. The taste is not very sweet at the beginning, but quickly mellows into an excellent spice, herb, fruit sweetness, lots of bananas. Very good mouthfeel, and overall a great and refreshing wheat.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2008
330 ml bottle - pours dull, slightly cloudy straw blond, lacks the "brightness" of a god hefe. Thick, sticky white head settles down after a bit. Strong fruity aroma, almost candy-like, with some medicinal notes as well, I guess from the herbs. Lemon and mint, too. Maybe a hint of nutmeg? Compelling. Very fresh smelling. Flavour similar to a hefe, but with a few more crisp, dry herbal notes. Wonderfully refreshing - perfect hot weather beer.
