3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341 ml bottle from MBLC Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, MB, sampled 6/26/08. Hazy orange amber colour with a mostly diminishing fizzy off-white head. Banana, citrus, and lightly spicy aroma. Lemon, banana, and clove flavours with a lemony, lightly acidic, and dry bitter finish. Light bodied, fizzy, but refreshing. I certainly wouldn’t complain if I had a locally made weizen like this in NS.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours slightly hazy pale gold with a short loose white head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is wheat, lemon, banana, cloves, bubblegum. (8/10) Taste is low sweet, mild bitter, mild tart/sour, salt(?). (8/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp tart lightly spicy finish. (4/5)
That’s different! Light and crisp, with distinct lemony notes and a crisp finish. I just went reading reviews and nobody else mentions it, but I swear this has got a lightly salty finish - heck, it’s almost a gose! I like this a lot, and it’s the second one from this brewery that I’ve really enjoyed - which means they’re officially on my short list for checking out additional brews. (17/20)

Bottle. Hazy goldenrod colour, smaller head. Aromas of orange, lemon rind, coriander, wheat, yeast, and a hint of nuttiness. Soft, mellow flavours of citrus and light spices, grains and again, a little nutty. Nicely balanced, easy drinking. One of the better hefeweizens I've tried, without a doubt.

Rich and refreshing wheat and citrus taste. Not too sharp or overbearing either. Well done again by half pints!
