3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Orange yellow semi hazy pour, medium white bubbly head that dissipates without leaving a residue. Citrus aroma, bit of spice. Taste is oranges, spices, grass. It’s alright but not my favorite for the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bit darker pour than average but maybe because it was in a pint glass at white spot...yeast driven Hef flavours and thin body and a bit watery. Decent but average for style.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smells sweet, like raspberry, hay and yeast. Pours dark golden, no head and cloudy.
Slight taste of raspberry, hay and yeast, pretty flat taste. Body is medium, moderate carbonation, sweet flavour.
This beer is pretty one dimensional, and doesn't taste as lively as other beers. Kind of puts a downer on my sunny day.
