Hazy yellow pour with a thin white head. Aroma of bananas, citrus and bubble-gum. The flavor has bubble-gum and restrained fruity esters. The body is medium with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Not bad, but seems to need some work to be really good.

Nez de levures fruitées (bananes mûres, moyen de citron), moyen de blé et d’épices (léger de coriandre, petites notes de clou de girofle), léger de pain et avec des notes herbeuses. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture aux petites notes huileuses. Goût de levures fruitées (bananes, moyen de citron) avec un léger goût épicé (léger de clou de girofle, notes de coriandre) ainsi que des petites notes de gomme balloune lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen goût de blé et un léger goût de pain frais puis en finale l’on retrouve un léger goût herbeux (herbes mouillées). Post-goût moyen et très légèrement asséchant composé d’un léger goût de blé et de levures fruitées (zest d’agrumes et pelures de bananes).

Another full-bodied offering from La Chouape, this is a limey Hefeweizen with a strong bubblegummy side and fair banana notes. It avoids the juicy side of things, remaining ample all the way through. Its yeastiness may not be very phenolic, but it develops aromatic bready notes. A bit mineral more than hoppy in the finish and softly carbonated for a hefe, which accentuates the thickness feeling.

En fût. Verre de 20 oz directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur de banane et d’épices. Apparence: La couleur est blonde voilée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de banane et d’épices avec une pointe citronnée. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement fruité. (Rating #2005)

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Modest banana esters get pushed aside by a bready yeast, as citrusy wheat attempts to increase drinkability in this simple and lean German-style Hefeweizen.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slim veil of foam skirts the cloudy yellowish white.
-This was served with a lime wedge; it was hard to make its juiciness disappear from the rim of the pint glass.
-The mouthfeel is not really authentic; thinner and not as comfortable in its frothy carbonation. Almost Witbier-like, as a matter of fact.
-Although its lack of authenticity and structured flavors might displease some craft beer lovers, one cannot say this is not well-brewed.
