3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from LCBO. Hazy pale orange with a white head, decent amount of lacing down the glass. Wheat, sugar, mild yeast, coriander, floral and citrus, some bitterness/hops. Initially somewhat sweet but then becomes bitter, low carbonation, a very nice dry and bitter finish. Although not so great at the beginning it does become quite tasty as it develops, could do with a little more balance. Worth at least trying.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 mLbottle. Looks like a weisse, and the aroma is fairly typical as well. But the flavour stands out in a crowded room. There is a hint of lime, I think, and the balance of wheat/yeast is perfect. This is a really solid weisse, and should come in more socially acceptable portions.

Bomber shared by MartinT.
Appearance : Hazy yellow with small head. Nice lacing.
Aroma : Nice citrusy hops with nice malt and great cereals.
Taste : Citrusy hops with nice malt, nice wheat too. Finish is sharp with citrusy hops. Nice wheat and malt.
Overall : Very refreshing and dry. Great summer beer, too bad we get it so late... Nice malt presence. Very drinkable and tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Chancey Smith’s- Many samples. Deep hazed yellow, pours a frothy and rocky cap that has super sticky qualities. Instant nose of Amarillo hops, pine, lemon drop, grapefruit. Very bitter and hoppy. Again, big on the Amarillo in the flavour. Pine and resniy hop goodness meet citrus fruit and some clove like spice. Long bitter finish. Refreshing and quenching summer brew!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This one’s not doing much for me. Massive up front hops, but I’m not getting that much else out of it. Very bitter.
Definitely nothing in a Weiss, but whatever, more interested in good beer than labels. This one just tastes like a Crazy Canuck in an ugly bottle, but with less balance.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, thanks to jerc. Pours lightly cloudy yellow, 2-finger foamy white head, very persistent, fine lacing. Nose is pretty citrus hops, lemon and grapefruit predominantly, with hints of wheat behind, nice smelling beer! Flavours of grapefruit, spice, creamy body, nice bitter finish. I could drink this all day! Fun fact: Consumed while I was brewing a 4.5%, heavily hopped, wheat beer. Hopefully mine turns out as nice!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: I’m told this is bottle conditioned but I assume this is cask brew finished in the bottle rather than the a cask.
Pours a cloudy golden ale in the flute with a solid puffy cap...great lacing. Nice soft natural carbonation.
Aroma is unique for a Weizen this has a pungent bouquet of fruity esters mingled with PNW hops; exotic fruits-banana-citrus...light biscuit aroma.
Soft mouth feel... biscuity, citrus resinous hopping, dry citrusy finish. Bright flavors but not the fruit basket the aroma promised...lacking spice phenols.
I got a couple of these and I suspect as a bottle conditioned weiss it may take a couple more weeks to have all the flavors develop. I’ll sample it again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Special Project X bomber. Clear off-gold with abundant white puffy head. Aromas citrus and a bit of grass. Taste is pretty hoppy with grapefruit rind and lemon and a light green herbal character, and under this a light feel. Some ganga-like character, possibly Simcoe? Amarillo and Centennial. Lacking a bit of fruit and body (GL beers seem to go lean or heavy on malts.) Overall? Surprised this is not sweeter, like a Hefe (given the name) but that’s OK.
