fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2011
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.

Oakes (15804) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Spicy, sweet, citrusy, herbal, well balanced, and a dash of alcohol. Top weizenbock. Or Imperial Hefe - an interesting beer that can be understood equally by either name, but in any case is one worth seeking out.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2011 On tap at the Alibi Room, pours cloudy blond / orange. Aroma and flavour of banana, caramel malt, citrus, clove and wheat. The higher ABV is not noticeable, but the taste is full-bodied. Delicious offering from Howe Sound.
