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

Like all of Granville’s beers it’s heavy on grain and malt. I can’t say I taste any hops in this. Its color is actually a little dark for a Hefeweizen and it’s a bit heavier than you’d expect for the category as well. That said I thought it was a pleasant surprise. It tastes more like a light ale with a touch of citrus and I actually came away quite happy with the taste. So it’s not really true to the category but what they do with it seems pretty good and I’ll be picking up some more in the future.

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 (11599) - 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.

OOKPIKABLE (118) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
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.

RhetoricalAns (368) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2014
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.

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.

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.
