Bottle from Big Ridge Liquor Store, Surrey
Cloudy deep blond color; small head, not much retention. The aroma has some wheat, hazelnuts, plastic, alcohol. The mouthfeel is quite dry; some wheat flavor, the bitterness is a bit too high, and a bit harsh; the final, therefore, is somehow disturbing. For sure not one for me.

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.

JoeMcPhee (8212) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2011
Tap at St. Augustines. Clear pale straw pour. The nose has lots of soft spice and a restrained banana fruitiness. Nice balance and there is a bit of wheat malt character as well. Nice integration with an appropriately tart - almost citrusy finish. It’s a very tasty hefeweizen - creamy palate. This keg seems to have dropped quite bright.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2011
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub, frehly put on. Orange wheaty aroma. Cloudy light orange coloured body with some soapy head. A little water in there so only average mouthfeel, i would want above average mouthfeel. Good drinkability. Decent taste but have had better for the style whether you consider it a hefe or a weizen.

Swing top bottle thanks to someone at Sour Fest. Pours with a hazy golden body and a small white head. Aroma is banana, vanilla and alcohol. Taste is banana, vanilla and clove. Alcohol is slightly more hidden on the palate than it was in the aroma.
