Pours with a nice creamy head like a traditional weiss. Best served in a weiss glass for this reason. Hints of banana, meyer lemon, and clove. Excellent summer weiss beer reminiscent of German wheats. My top pick for Ontario weissbier so far.

Appearance: slightly hazy pale gold with one finger of loose white head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: yeasty wheat, banana, citrus, coriander. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, light spice. (6/10) Light body, lively carbonation, off-dry short duration slightly spicy finish. (3/5) I’m not entirely sure about the packaging date - there’s a stamp on the can reading G30512, which I’m interpreting as July 30, 2015 (i.e. like Unbroue’s format) but I could be wrong. It’s not like there’s a lot of hop character to degrade here, but it might explain why it’s only slightly hazy, instead of actually cloudy. Regardless, as it stands right now, it’s an inoffensive and quaffable summer ale, without a whole lot to distinguish it. OK, but nothing exciting. (12/20)

Can - a fairly run of the mill hefe. Not great, not bad. Yeasty and lemony, light and highly carbonated.

Rating #1219 - 05.08.2014 On tap @revolutionyeg Pours a clear golden yellow with no haziness to speak of. Bubbly white head dissipates quickly. Aroma is heavy on yeast, mild fruitiness (banana), very mild herbal note.. Taste is quite sweet, and doesn’t have the natural spicy tones of your typical hefeweisen. Pretty mild.

Listigovers (874) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2015 Pours cloudy gold with white head. Smell is very spicy. Taste is the same, flavour is all spices, body is a bit thin, aftertaste is slightly sweet bread. I’m not really feeling this one.

Strangebrewer (1146) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2015
can. Poured hazy straw coloured with a white head. Grainy wheat aroma with a hint of lemony citrus. Light-medium body, average carbonation, refreshing mouthfeel. Citrusy wheat malt flavour, notes of yeast with a touch of corriander. Typical weisse.

taylorderek (38) - Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 15, 2015
Pours a hue of gold with a fluffy write head. On the tongue it’s got a medium body and persistent carbonation. The yeast smell is a bit overbearing, which leads to a shortbread sort of flavour.

Canned sample from MLCC. Pours hazy. Spicy nice finish. Just enough malt and hops......Enjoyed this one

ljthiessen (1079) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 26, 2015
Can. Hazy pale golden pour without much head. Aroma is sweet grainy malt, wheat and orange notes. Flavour is the same, fairly sweet and grainy with a bit of citrus, but virtually no bitterness.

northropfrye (3214) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
Cloudy orange/yellow body, quickly fading, almost non-existent white head, which in a hefeweizen should be more more ample. Sharp, almost tart citrus and yeast aroma, lemon, sour. Taste is sweet vanilla wheat, and also a pleasant tartness. It’s not bad.
