A refreshing, German-styled wheat beer with a distinctive banana and clove aroma, it is made with barley, wheat, hops, water and hefe yeast and named in recognition of the thousands of climbers who come from around the world to climb Squamish, BC’s walls, crags, cracks, slabs and boulders

The word "imperial " should never preface Hefe Weizen. This was boozy & non refreshing, with little or none of type typical hefe traits

Pours good golden but good head. Strong nose of orange. Medium full mouthfeel, good carbonation. Solid wheat flavour backed up by orange.

Babyfood banana aroma. Crystal clear amber, thick lasting head. Decidedly less fruity on the palate, with wheat bread taking its place. Alcohol evident Grassy hops are surprisingly assertive. Malty and boozy, hoppy for the style, but kind of neat. Paired well with lemon frosted sugar cookies.

Suttree (5356) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Murky gold, large fluffy white head. Smells like toast and apple butter. Oddly sweet flavor, like raisin bread toast or something like that. Some bubble gum and banana, too. Not bad...

Liter fliptop from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark translucent gold with a huge creamy white head. Aroma is firmly clove and banana. Med + body. Flavor is tangy/strong banana and clove. Wow. Wonder what the Bavarians think of this! Finishing with very strong flavors.

1 litre bottle from LCBO. Love the resealable top. Pale hazy light amber with a nice off white head that fades quickly. Banana, wheat, some cloves, bit of alcohol. Sweet, mildish body, moderate carbonation, becomes a bit dry, alcohol on the finish, interesting.
