COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summer Limited Release
This unfiltered wheat ale goes well with sizzling summer days, so find yourself a patio and pull up a chair. Enjoy Hefeweizen chilled in a tall, slim glass, and although our Brewmaster may scoff, a lemon wedge is the perfect accessory to the natural fruit flavours of this refreshing beer. This ultimate thirst quencher is like no other. Unique flavors originate from an unfiltered suspension of precious Bavarian yeast,generous amounts of malted wheat and liberty hops

Not a balanced beer. Too thin on the finish. It's drinkable, nothing outstanding. It's no Schneider Weiss hefe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Meh. Decent Hefeweizen flavours but not well balanced. Hazy pour, big blast of banana flavours and some spices. Needs a good dose of subtlety.

nother product by Granville Island which was part of their Summer Mingler 12-pack I got at my grocery store. 341ml bottle served in a weizen glass at 4 degrees: The pours is orange/golden and slightly hazy. Microcarbs are spotted through the glass and you only get a thin white head which dissipates quickly, not even leaving a trace. The nose is mostly grainy and sweet with cloves melon and banana coming through. You don’t get many hoppy or yeasty features except a faint grassy element way in the back. On the tongue, you get a mix of caramel, banana and melon all wrapped in a thin grassy blanket. The brew shows a moderate density and finishes very abruptly. A timid bitterness tickles the back of the palate some time after your sip. Overall I liked this beer. I’m not well educated when it comes to Hefeweizen brews, but I think it would pair up nicely with hearty brunch or on its own on a hot summer day. Light, sweet and easy going brew. Cheers!

500 mL can. Murky nectarine with a froth of white head. Some peach and banana notes with some wheat malt accents. Strangely muddy flavors; neither here nor there. Slightly sweet and a little bitter on the finish. Moderate carbonation and light body. Did not enjoy. Lingering bleh.

Sweet aroma and a strong taste of banana. Cloudy and light appearance and a sweet aftertaste.

brokensail (12485) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 30, 2014
On tap @ Granville Island Brewing. Cloudy golden pour with a white head. Some decent banana and bready malt aromas. There’s a lot of citrus, a bit of bubblegum, and some clove. Taste is kind of a spicy banana bread. A little bit tart and citrusy. Some bubblegum, lemon zest, and clove. Kind of grainy.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2014 Obvious clove and banana esters are present immediately. Amazing aroma noticable cross-room, great hop presence as well. Carbonation was low.. Very sessionable and I would recommend to others, but nothing too memorable.

Pours like a weiss. Aroma like a weiss. Banana-ey taste like a weiss, but there’s more: a full, well-rounded, sweet banana flavour. Very nice.
