3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I tried this beer on September 23, 2011 after obtaining a bottle from a friend. The beer pours a hazy orange gold with a thin tan head that lasts. Aroma is citrusy hops with a hint of wheat and yeast. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is citrusy hops, peppery spice, and some sweet malt tones. I enjoyed it a great deal.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(on cask at Brydenís, Toronto, July 2013) Pours a very hazy darker yellow-gold with a helping of white cask froth that left lace. Aroma is hop-forward, tropical fruit and citrus peel and a bit of resin, a little grain in there but that big cask aroma overpowers the wheat. Flavour is not really as punchy as the aroma, with light tropical fruit and citrus and a bit of malt sweetness giving way to slight lemony character, wheat, a bit of hop resin bitterness, and a dry finish. Body is fairly light, a smooth cask pint, maybe a little bit watery. Good, lightweight, refreshing to gulp.

Pours a translucent, pale yellow colour with a one finger, head. Very fine sediment. Aroma has hints of bread and light citrus, especially lemon.Taste is slightly tart/bitter with a lemon, pepper aftertaste.Light to medium body with a medium carbonation.Light, bubbly mouth feel. Refreshing brew well worth a try.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle. Pours hazy yellow with golden aspirations and a short white head. Well thatís very citrusy on the nose with some light spice and banana. A letdown on the palate, all things considered. Kind of watery, nice spice level and some good banana elements but overall itís kind of hallow.

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.

Pours tang crystal orange with a sturdy cottage cheese cap. Was is das? Well it ainít your opaís Weiss beer -- theyíre pretty upfront about this from the get go -- with those sturdy hops & that throaty aftertaste. This is right up my alley & therefore will start getting rotation in my fridge. My old man always says if I wanted a Weiss why would i drink a Canadian one? This pour sidesteps that question.

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 havenít had the best of luck with the Gigs Draft list. Yeah I expect a Weiss to be more refreshing than this.

650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours golden in colour, some suspended yeast. Smallish white head, a little lace on the glass. Aroma and taste are wheaty, lots of sharp bitter, resiny hops. Dynamite!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2011 Good, but rough around the edges. Pours a hazy deep gold with short lived fizzy head. The aroma is grapefruit out the wah-zoo, thats about it, but thatís not necessarily a complaint. The flavour starts out with a resiny hop drop kick of grapefruit, there is some pale malts, biscuit, and such, but itís really stands in the back ground while the grapefruit goes to town. Itís a good concept, and itís not a bad beer, but itís a little rough, the hops are too prevalent and a little harsh. Hop Sun was considerably better balanced version of this hoppy weiss. Other then that, thumbs up!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hoppy conifer nose, pine, cedar and pepper notes. Very surprising for a witbeer. Nice resinous hops.
Appearance: Straw with tiny particles suspended. Average thickness, density and lasting for head. No lacing.
Taste: Attack is dominated by hops with a lot of fir, pine and other conifer notes. Very particular that bitterness is happening at the beginning of tasting process and not at finish. Very few malt sugars. Texture is extremely thin and watery. Do not expect a typical wheat beer. It is closer to a light IPA or pale ale with a lot of conifer notes.
