Banana heavy, especially in flavour. Bit of clove spiciness, more banana. Some lacing on the glass, persistent thin white head. Deeply golden in colour. Good level of dryness for a higher ABV beer. Love the bottle - will save it for homebrew.

1 L bottle from LCBO, shard with family, cool. Milky amber with a decent of white head. Decent fresh banana, a touch metallic, fair yeast and dough, wheat, light toasted grains, no alcohol to speak of...dangerous. Medium plus body, full, fine effervescence. Strong banana, wheat, toasted cereals, yeast notes, no clove to speak of, a touch of bright fruitiness, no alcohol, nice; almost dry with minimal bitterness and a long banana and light toast finish. Quite good and dangerously drinkable for the abv.

One litre bottle. I don’t know why. Orange with a thick white head. Lots of the typical hefe aromas, especially bubblegum. The flavour is fairly typical, except for the presence of booze. This adds depth, body and some bitterness. Nice balance of yeast, wheat and booze. Good beer.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2013 Nice soft carbonation. Pours cloudy orange with great lacing, some head. Good for a hefeweizen but needs some work for a weizenbock. Aroma of banana, clove and some spice like thyme or something similar. Finishes sweet and sour with good balance. Some tang in finish as well. Tap at St. Augustine’s.

Pours a clear golden amber color color with a fluffy white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of banana, clove, bubblegum and a nice alcohol burn. Taste is a good balance of cloves and bananas, Wheat and a nice balanced alcohol warmth. Excellent imperial hefe.

Pours a clear golden/amber colour with a thin small white head. Aroma is spicy cloves, fruity, moderate banana, and some alcohol. Flavour is spicy cloves, spicy yeast, fruity, alcohol and a malty/wheat backbone. A good full mouth feel, and session-able for a nice summer night.

Une blanche claire avec les notes d’agrumes est une mousse moyenne. Très bonne pour une bièrre de la région de Vancouver mais il peut pas comparer avec la même syle des bières d’allemand.

Looks like apricot juice when poured. Smells like one too. Well.. I guess I’m the opposite of the review below me. Past weizenbocks I’ve had had more of a dark fruit character, this one had more banana. Very little finish, refreshing instead of yeasty... which makes it feel refreshing, dangerous for a higher alcohol beer.

September 20, 2011 - bottle sample at Volo. Very hazy light orange with an average diminishing off-white head. Smells great - spicy cloves, some alcohol, fruity, but not a lot of banana for a change, mostly apple and yeast and some floral character. Taste follows - definitely strong alcohol, but there’s enough malt to hold up to it. Thick and spicy mouthfeel, good carbonation, a nice yeasty/fruity finish and NO aftertaste - it’s there and good, then just .... gone. Cool!
