robinvboyer (2883) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2014
Good wheat aromas and flavours, but it lacks in bubblegum and cloves. They are there but very subtle, and are washed out by over the top yeasty esters. The finish is short, and low on the bitterness scale with a prnounced wet paper flavour.

Metalchopz (2133) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
Single can from a local IGA store. Pours a cloudy light yellow colour with a big frothy white head, good retention and some soapy lacing. Smells more like a pilsner than a Hefeweizen with metallic notes and some grassy citrus, but no banana, nor bubblegum. Metallic taste with mild wheat and a little sourness, kind of citrus. Other than looking good, not much of a Hefe. Not much of beer as well.

YanIpa (144) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2014
Cannette 473ml. Couleur paille voilée, mousse blanche laissant une dentelle tenace. Arôme de blé. Goût de blé, banane, girofle en fin de bouche. Carbonatation moyenne-faible, corps faible. Corecte !!!

Boutip (4509) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2014
Can: Poured a hazy pale yellow color ale with a medium size white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of strong wheat malt with light sweet candy-like ester. Taste is a good mix between some wheat malt notes with some candy-like ester with sweet undertones. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well done with nice refreshing notes with just maybe a tad bit too much of residual sugars.

mathieuc (999) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2014
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a medium white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is herbal and only lightly spicy, way tamer than your usual "hefe". No bananas nor cloves. Taste is of wheat and that’s about it. Not much sugar or any real flavors in fact. Maybe some faint bananas in the end. Body is light, mouthfeel almost watery. This isn’t a filling and smooth hefe, more like a weak white beer. Wheat tartness in the finish. Nothing offensive but nothing much to talk about either. Maybe it is just me that is used to "banana-bomb" or "cloves-bomb" hefeweizen, though.

daniel0017 (372) - Yukon, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
Cloudy golden yellow body with some effervescence. Rich, thick frothy white head. Notes of corriander, fruit and hops to the nose. flavour is slightly tangy but smooth and well balanced.

Whatup14 (600) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
Cannette 473ml. Couleur paille voilée, mousse blanche floconneuse laissant une dentelle tenace. Arôme de banane verte, un brin sucré, blé, pain? Goût de blé, banane subtile, girofle en fin de bouche. Carbonatation moyenne-faible, corps faible, mais pas aqueux.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
Bière blonde voilée surmontée d’un moyen col de mousse blanche affichant une bonne tenue. Elle offre des arômes de céréales, de pain, de bananes et de subtiles notes de clou de girofle. En bouche, elle offre un bel équilibre entre le blé et les bananes avec une belle rondeur. Une très bonne hefeweizen.

solidfunk (3023) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Very nicely done. Great balance, and definitely more interesting than the average hefeweizen. Bread yeast, light banana and clove. Cloudy golden pour with good head, lacing. Finishes with light, crisp sweet and sour flavour. Good all around beer from small brewery. Tap at Gainsbourg.
