Strong white head, milky golden colour with a strong aroma. Tastes clean, finishes with a strong, bitter aftertaste, I’d drink it again.

Bottle-Cloudy yellow pour with a frothy but short lived white cap, leaving a little lace. The aromas are banana and clove with lemon and malts with a minty, herbal essence that s quite interesting. That must be the alpine herbs. Tastes of lemon and other citrus fruit, sweet banana, cloves and again an interesting minty spiciness. I quite like it. The finish is creamy and lingering.

Twist top bottle??? Pours a decent looking clouded pale straw in the glass with a 3 finger puffy cap. Great lacing. Color and look more reminiscent of a Belgian wit Good aroma for a commercial weissbier; banana, spices, cloves, bit of fruit bubblegum, and a mild herbal under tone....nice! A whack of sweet malts up front that instantly is joined with fruits, spice and some fine bittering herbs that compliment and brighten the hops...finish dries out nicely with a crisp snap and a bit of puckering dryness. Really nicely carried off for a commercial effort.Aromatic. fruity lightly sweet with a dry crispness. Very decent flavourful summer drink.

Clear bottle 330 ml
Appearance: Cloudy wheat ale with medium light ,semi dense head . 3-
Nose Herbal , citric aroma, grassy with light wheat bready hints.
Flavor/Palate : Character fully displayed. Ripe banana, citric side with herbal , wild root like finish. Caramel anise with mineral streak. Reminds me more of Belgian wit than classic weizen.

pours like typical wheat beer, cloudy pale yellow with big white frothy head. Aroma is what gives it character. Flavor is rather typical of this beer style, perhaps even milder in flavor than others I have tried. Overall not as interesting as I expected. A good beer nonetheless., I would buy again (price is decent) just not something I would seek out to try again. Does go down nice on a warm summer day.

JesseM (1151) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2008
330ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours the ideal Hefe look, but a smaller head. Odd smelling, but in a nice way, herbal of course, with lots of yeast. Flavour isn’t as different as I was expecting, but it’s still a bit odd. A hint of mint along the typical hefe flavours, but what really stands out is this bubble-gum flavour. Pleasant and drinkable, but only mildly out of the ordinary. The only thing I don’t personally like very much is the sourness in the finish. Cool bottle though.

330 ml bottle from the LCBO. pours hazy yellow white an everlasting pure white head. aromas of belgian wit and bubble gum. flavours are very similar to the aromas. the alpine herbs add an interesting twist. reminds me so much of bubble gum. enjoyable but i couldnt have to in a row. nice beer if you were on a date and planned to make out after. i will buy this one again.

TheJester (1963) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2008
330 mL bottle. (bb 02/2009). Cloudy yellow beer that seems to have an almost greenish tinge to it. Very active with a nice white head to it. Typical weiss aroma with something very fresh and herbal/floral underneath. There is something a little different about the taste as well, but I can’t quite put my finger (tongue?) on it - unfamiliar "alpine herbs" I suppose. It’s a little sweet (honey?), with mild mint, bananas, semi-sweet citrus, bubble gum, and wheat. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. Not bad - it certainly differentiates itself a bit from some of the other wheat beers out there.

I tried this beer on June 5, 2008 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a hazy golden orange colour with a thick white head which lasted a few minutes. The aroma was wheat, some cloves, and a little bit of hops. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and highly carbonated. The flavour was sweet wheat with some clove, banana, and coriander.
