Pours hazy pale straw with virtually no head, and therefore zero lacing. Very light carbonation. Aromas are light banana, and heavy on black pepper. The latter I found a bit strange in this style, but interesting and welcome. Tastes are mainly of sweet citrus fruits, banana, and some wheat. Overall, a decent, quaffable summery wheat beer that would go down easy in any patio or backyard.

Slightly hazy straw coloured pour, thin white head that disappears fast without residue. Yeast aroma, cloves, some banana. Taste is mostly spicy. Light body.

Can from LCBO. Pours a hazy straw colour with a white head. Aroma is grass, light cloves, pepper, lemon and candy. Light body, medium carbonation. Light cloves, bubblegum, pepper, lemon, orange and a slight metallic bitterness which lingers and lets it down. OK.

Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours a cloudy straw color with a small white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits with some hints of cloves and yeast. Taste is a grainy malt and light fruit (likely banana) sweetness with a grassy and spicy hop bitterness. Light bodied with mild carbonation. A decent brew for the style, which is quite tasty and worth trying.

Second release from this brewer, but fifth one to try from them, as just released in cans. Pours a mild hazy light-golden colour with a white froth head, average retention and hardly any lace. Belgian Ale yeast aromas with the spiciness of clove and the notes of bananas from the wheat. Also, hints of alcohol and grainy corn malt. The taste is quite milder with a little spicy banana cereals. Seems a little off on this one. Just needs to be balanced a little better.

Scent of banana, clove, and and allspice. Clear golden colour. Flavour of dark honey, banana, and cinnamon. Medium body with light carbonation. Really nice for dock-drinking and flavour.

Can from LCBO, beautiful colour and aroma. Very smooth not as cloyingly citrus,banana as some. Not the best weisse I have tasted, but very drinkable.I’ll be back for more

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
Cloudy pale yellow pour. The aroma has classic banana and a bit of dusty/spicy wheat. A bit of sulphur and light clove. Restrained on the latter really. A bit of tartness as it warms up. Has a pretty decent balance. Nice stuff.

Tap, pour is light yellow, cloudy, aroma is a banana, taste is banana and a pretty smooth, overall nice offering.

AWS9 (468) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2013
On tap. Decent hazy gold pour. Citrus nose. Requisite wheat. Foamy mouthfeel. The actual citrus and hop flavouring is a bit underwhelming, but it’s certainly very drinkable. Solid, but unspectacular, wheat beer.
