La Shawinigan Handshake est une bière voilée à la couleur pêche, qui exhale des parfums de brioche, de banane et de sapinage propre à sa levure allemande et au houblon Chinook qui la composent. D’une effervescence explosive, sa bouche rappelle d’abord la banane, puis présente une finale sèche et sapinée. Translation: Shawinigan Handshake is a peach colored beer, full of cinnamon bun, banana and spruce aromas that come from the chinook hops and german yeast used for it’s making. A highly carbonated palate presents banana flavors at first, followed by a dry resinous finish.

Très bonne Weizen. On goûte très bien la levure allemande qui fait ressortir le goût des bananes et de la brioche allemande. La robe est pêche et plutôt opaque. Un peu houblonnée quand même, elle se défend très bien dans son style. Un classique du TDD.

On tap at ST Augustine’s in Vancouver. A peach coloured slightly cloudy beer with a bit of white head. Very pleasantly fruity nose. The taste is suggestive of pineapple and slightly of banana. A bit of spice, probably coriander as well. Nice. 3.7

More hops and less weizen with an appropriate placement of fruit flavours. Another amazing beer from an amazing brewery.

As usual with TDD, pretty much everything you need to know about this beer is in the description above. Bread dough, banana, spice and pine. Sweet, slightly sour, with a dry, slightly bitter finish. Aggressive carbonation. Good shyte.

Beardbeerman (271) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2015
Pours a clouded golden topped by about two fingers of frothy white head showing good retention and lacing properties. The is yeasty, mostly, with some banana in the back. Some piny features come through. The taste is dominated by the yeasts and their fruity/piny aspects. Some breadiness noticed at the end. Very dry and foamy, with a medium body. Cheers!

Pours a murky yellow-gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Very dry aroma of yeast, banana, other fruit and light sugary sweetness. Dry, yeasty flavour, a bit herbal and fruity. Medium bodied. Pretty good.
