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.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - JUN 27, 2008
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 (527) - 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.

robinvboyer (3391) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2008
hazy yellow pour, with little to no head. Lots of yeast in the aroma along with lots of citrus, especially lemon. Flavour is very much all lemon to my tastes, its like a lemon lifesaver. Its interesting, not 100% unpleasant, but i’m not tasting any "alpine herbs".

DerWeg (1546) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2008
Warm from the bottle, I was thirsty! Like a fruity krystal weizen with a few twists. The spiciness of the added herbs really compliments the clvoe phenolics typical of hefe fbeers. Very well made and good tasting, and WAY better than some Belgian fruity crap. which seems to be the shits.

Cartoonkhaki (1221) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2008
Light hazy yellow with large white head. Aroma is lightly spiced with fruity fresh lightly banana aroma. Bit of spiced up banana and bubble gum. Clean fresh palate with light acidity.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - JUN 16, 2008
Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is spicey, fruity and herbal. The flavour is light, with some banana being the most prominent flavour, a little coriander, and a bit of herbal alpin bitter finish. A damn refreshing beer, with great drinkability. Cheers!
