1L bottle. Pours a cloudy banana yellow, big shaving cream head. Orange and clove aroma. Taste is very full, sweet citrus and spice with some banana and wheat. Average body for the style. Overall, taste on this is pretty aggressive and bold, not bad but it prevents a certain accessibility. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Metalchopz (2525) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2013
An Imperial Hefeweizen... quite interesting. Pours a hazy golden-amber colour with a big warm cap that is bubbly and almost creamy, with decent retention and lots of sticky lace. Aromas of bananas with light wheat. Eventually, smells like rusty water with the hop they use. Average wet mouthfeel, medium-bodied, but all without the burn. The taste is milder, with the wheat and some sweetness. Hints of spices and bananas. A nice brew, but not sure a hefeweizen needs to have that much alcohol. Takes away the refreshment of this style.

1L bottle from the LCBO. hazy copper pour, billowy,rocky white head. aroma is all cloves, and bananas, with quite a bit of yeast, and malted wheat. not surprising really, but everything seems to be much bolder than i would have expected. the flavor is all cloves, and wheat, with whisps of banana and bubblegum. the finish is light on the bitterness with a thick malted wheat after taste.

Perfect carbonation, everything coming together perfect in this beer. Absolutely delicious! Excellent beer!

shorlin (716) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - JUL 9, 2013
Aroma comes off with very big banana, and also some clove in there. Appearance is a cloudy gold-yellow with lots of lace. We did multiple small pours out of a liter bottle, so head development isn’t really judgable. Taste is kind of sweet. Body is nice and full, much more so than a typical hefeweizen. Great beer!

It pours murky almost opaque ochre; the head is off-white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: bananas, bubble gum, sweet grains, hay, floral notes, and unfiltered honey. The taste is light sweet that finishes medium dry; there are notes of: bananas, sweet grains, honey, and bubble gum. The palate is medium bodied, sticky, medium carbonation, and a medium dry finish. Overall, a well executed weisse.
