2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very hazy gold pour with a foamy frothy sticky head. Citrus and hops in the nose. Very sour. Suck all the wetness out of your mouth sour. Floral. I expected more sweetness to balance it. Yeasty aftertaste. So far I haven’t had the best of luck with the Gigs Draft list. Yeah I expect a Weiss to be more refreshing than this.

May 8, 2012; 4.5% abv; Non-Project X bottle - 650mL bottle, refrigerated; old bottle
Mostly hop aromas: citrus and pine. Some sweet malts, caramel-like. I was surprised that there was no banana-esters (until I actually read the label); different kind of yeast. Pours a hazy amber with a nice 1cm head. Some sediment fluttered around. Pretty average looking. Grapefruit hops dominate with some pine. Caramel sweetness comes through with some bready notes. A resinous finish ends it off. Pretty well mixed stuff, though I think the complexity may have mellowed out with the age (from what I recall of the Toronto Festival of Beer cask last year). A pretty light brew overall, refreshing. Interesting take on a wheat ale. Hops and malt were well balanced.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle purchased at the Dundas LCBO. Pours a cloudy orange with huge fluffy white head and lacing. Smells rather hoppy. Tastes a little bitter. Except for the floaties, its rather nice and refreshing. I had this at the Toronto Beer festival and it was better.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Love the bottle/name. Pale yellow with a bubbly short-lived white head. Very hoppy with grassy notes and a bitter after-taste. Lacks the sweet fruity flavours weissbeer is famous for (but explicitly states that in the bottle). Very refreshing. I enjoyed very much.

Thanks to JB84 for this. The design of this bottle is so atrocious that its pretty hilarious. Brilliant. Pours a cloudy golden. Lots of grapefruit aroma. Tastes quite a bit of wheat, coriander, citrus with a bit of resinous hops. This is pretty decent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650 ml bottle. Hazy golden pour, thick white spongy head. Lots of aroma. Grapefruit, apples, lemon, vanilla and a little grass/straw. Light and bready mouthfeel. Nice balanced flavours of vanilla maltiness, almost fruit juice and grassy/citrus hop finish. Refreshing and flavourful take on weiss, this is good stuff!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Miami Weiss. Aside from being a very clever play on words, it’s Toronto brewery Great Lakes’ take on an American weiss beer. Clearly a homage to the 1980’s, I feel like I need to turn on some Rick Astley while drinking it. That’s what people did in the 1980’s when they partied right? Pours a hazy yellow. Aroma is fresh hops and citrus. Flavor has pepper and strong grapefruit notes. For a weiss beer it’s strong on hops. Miami Weiss is a refreshing and different take on the style, and great for summer time bbq’s. Just don’t turn up the Rick Astley too loud after you’ve had a few. You will regret it in the morning.

On tap. Pours golden yellow with decent lacing and an off-white head. Aroma: loaded with hops and minor wheat notes. Flavour is very hoppy, bitter grassy, Well made the bitterness is overwhelming.
