[6044-20131102] Tap. Fruity banana sauce aroma. Slightly hazy, pale orange body with a quick creamy white head. Like biting into a banana split sundae, ice cream and banana and all. Medium body. Really interesting. (6/4/8/4/14) 3.6

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012-11-02. Crisp dark yellow body small white head. 3+
Aroma is quite sweet, banana, something fruity I can’t place.
Flavour is quite fruity, lots of banana esters like a LOT. Mild pale malt is sweet. Not particularly wheaty. Very smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3+ A bit of an ester-bomb at times but I kind of like it. On tap at Junction, Toronto

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Pours fairly clear(for the style) with a golden yellow or light amber colour. I find the aroma quite muted, but there are notes of bannana, yeast, some esters and kitchen spice. There is also a tang or citrus fruit note and some apple on the aroma. On the palate it is a touch sour, supported by yeast notes and some esters, and has a fast finish. There is a touch of something metallic/bitter in there as well. Overall, rather boring for the style but not the worst hefe i’ve had.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
500 mL bottle from the brewery, via Lubiere (merci!), served cool in a tulip glass. Cloudy bright yellow with a fair, frail white head. Odd, meaty smokiness, a touch of tang, some wheat and boiled cereals, bitter green herbs reminiscent of a Saison, maybe some banana cringing in the shadows, not good. Medium body and full, creamy effervescence. Oddly tangy, a little of the smoke note, maybe a touch metallic, faint banana, still not good; dry, minimal bitterness, light astringency and acidity, weird and bad. Major let down!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle [500ml]. Pours a very hazy yellow-gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, banana, herbs & spices and a hint of grassy hops. Pleasant flavour with a nice amount of spice and lemon along with wheat and banana. Medium bodied. A nice version of the style.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A hazed blonde weizen with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, a classic banana and cloves with light sulfur. In mouth, clean banana, cloves, nice and smooth.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the brewery. Hazy yellow-gold with a small but persistent white head. Aroma and flavour both balance banana esters with a nice hit of lemon and backing note of toasted wheat. Lemon becomes especially prominent in the back end of the flavour, along with a grassy dryness. Body is medium-full with a nice creamy character. I tend to like some clove notes in my weizen, so this one let me down a bit there - but otherwise, pretty nice!
