Beardbeerman (272) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2015
Bought directly at the brewery in Farnham. Pours a cloudy golden of good opacity topped by a finger or so of creamy off-white head showing pretty good retention and lacing properties. Some pretty vivid carbs can be spotted through the dense robe. The nose is yeasty, doughy, some green apples or Williams pears. Some lemon peel in the back. The taste is dominated by the yeasts (had the yeasts be given more room, the brew would have come out cheezy), giviing the brew a doughy backbone paired with pears, apples and melon. The hops do come through with a fresh grassy features lifting up the yeasts even more. Nice round body with a hint of sharpness from the carbs. The finish is long and mellow of ripe fruits. Very fruity and refreshing. Cheers!

Une canette partagée en deux. Une robe dorée et voilée avec une mousse qui ne dure pas. Le nez exhibe des notes de pain avec de fines notes de banane et des épices un peu perdues. Au goût, voilà du blé, des bananes et des fleurs d’agrumes. En bouche, le liquide m’apparaît un peu paresseux. En finale, des notes courtes légèrement surettes.

HopsandBolts (201) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2015
On tap at Bieres et Compaign.

Appearance: Cloudy yellow with thick dense white head.

Aroma: Flour, dough.

Flavours: Bananas, floral notes.

Mouthfeel: Nice creamy mouthfeel.

Overall: An okay Hefeweizen but the typical banana flavour doesn’t come through all that strong.

Lubiere (11232) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2015
A hazed golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity banana malt with cloves and nice pear. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with loads of banana esters, cloves, oily mouth, silky and smooth. On tap at Festival Brassicole des Laurentides 2015.

HippyHop (477) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
Pour is cloudy gold with a massive snow white cap that leaves great lacing as it slowly fades. Nose is wheat and a bit of a banana, plus this rustic, earthy element that makes me think it was brewed on the farm where the wheat was grown...or maybe I’m just high. Taste is more wheat, and more banana, but it’s kind of watery, a touch metallic, and the finish is kinda short, but it’s aight.

piscator34 (2152) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Draft sample. Hazy gold in colour with strong carbonation. Typical hefe aromas of vanilla and banana, but not much clove to speak of. More of the same in the mouth, but with the addition of an unusual grainy note. Medium bodied and fairly refreshing. A well executed hefeweizen, but nothing to really take it to the next level either.
