rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - JUL 4, 2012
0.5l bottle from LCBO. Pours a very cloudy pale orange, with a frothy white head. Lots of carbonation. Lighter colour near the bottom. Aroma: Very spicy, very wheaty. Kinda skunky. Smells more like a belgian wit than a hefeweizen. Palate: Medium bodied, extremely fizzy, and very astringent for a hefeweizen. Gives it a slight sour tinge, but makes it feel kinda off to me. Maybe it was just sitting on the LCBO’s shelves for half a year. Taste: Sweet, kinda flat. Not much flavour here, but it’s not awful. Probably helps that it feels like 44C outside. Add some lemon and it can’t be bad at all. (Definitely one of the worst hefeweizen’s i’ve had though)

Couleur jaune trouble, fort mousse blanche. Nez malté, fruité, note de pate. Gout levuré et épicé avec note fruitée. Corps très pétillant. Fin légèrement fruité, note citrique. Pas super pour le style.

Arek (694) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle 0.5 l, Intermarché, Zielona Góra, Poland.
Złote, mętnawe piwo z niebyt obfitą i szybko opadającą pianą oraz pszenicznym, lekko bananowym aromatem. W smaku wyraziście pszeniczne z mocnym bananowy, aż lekko mdłym posmakiem i odrobiną goryczki w tle.

The new label (or is it the old) had a stag on front. Same beer though. Must be the exclusive North American bottle.
