Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2012
Hazy yellow. Sweet and banana aroma. Soft and lightly spicy. Not as sweet as it smells. Ok

Lubiere (10472) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2009
A hazy golden weizen with a thin white head. A pleasant banana aroma with light cloves, and nice fruity esters. In mouth, a solid and honest weizen, with light banana esters, yeasty and wheaty, almost silky, a bit lighter than expected, but overall, a good summer offering. On tap at Brasseurs du Temps, May 30, 2009.

This will be part of the regular lineup of offerings. enjoyed at the brewpub. Funky banana taste, above average carbonation and mouthfeel. Unfiltered and looks it, with cloudy blond appearance, little head. Beery aroma. Passable for style, drinkable on a hot summer day.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2009
My Bottom Line:
This Weizen’s loose and timid flavor profile offers some yeasty dialogue amidst the important cereal presence, but the overall result pales in comparison to the great Bavarian examples.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the cloudy blond.
-This does not have your typical Bavarian Weizen nose; the banana esters and bubblegummy phenols tend to get lost in the grainy cereals.
-The flavors are not as cohesive as they could be.
-The mouthfeel is not as full and soft as I would like.
-I must admit I had had a superb Weihenstephaner the day before, so I might be harsher than usual here because this Bouillon just couldn’t stand up to the test. Weihenstephaner is simply perfect, so...

On tap at the brewpub.

jercraigs (8070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2009
2009-11-17. Lightly hazy dark yellow with a small white head. 3+ Pleasant estery aroma, fruit, banana, light yeast and ephemeral not-quite-clove character. Flavour is likewise, fruity esters, wheat, slightly sharp bitterness in the finish, light alcohol presence. 7+ Smooth average plus palate. 3+ Enjoyable, simple. On tap at the brewpub

Aroma: bready , soft aromatic nose, plenty of esters floating around. Clean and straight.
Appearance: hazed amber gold with mid white top. Sparse lace.
Body/Flavour/Palate: Medium light bodied. Grainy with frontal tartness. Soft top. Slight bitterness finishing. Proper.

blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a hazy yellow with a small semi-lasting creamy white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast and grain along with hints of banana, spices and sourness. Flavour’s better, it’s a bit watery but flavourful: Wheat along with light banana, other fruit and mild spices. Average bodied. Pretty good.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2009
Draught. At the brewpub. Hazy pale yellow with a small white head. Dry, slightly burnt aroma of cut grass and banana. The taste follows, with lemon added and much less banana ester - not too sweet. Somewhat light-bodied, slightly astringent (which is weird for this style), with a lightning-fast finish - a bit dry, but otherwise a decent, refreshing take on the style, it would be easy to drink in quantity.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Hazy yellow. Witbier aroma has coriander, yeast, and flowers. Soft and yeasty. Good ripe meaty fruit and nice malt character beneath. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 9, 2009
On tap at the brewpub: Light hazy golden color ale with a small head. Aroma of medium wheat malt with very subtle notes of banana. Taste is a strange mix between some wheat malt with (too) subtle notes of banana ester and a dry slightly hoppy finish. Body is about average with OK carbonation. Not bad but a bit too dry for my taste – I will have to re-rate this one in the future.
