A hazed blonde with a thin white head. In aroma, pleasant fruity banana malt with nice herbaceous hops, pungent and smooth. In mouth, a nice fruity ester with banana, grassy herbal hops, light citrus notes, very pleasing. On tap at Festibiere de Gatineau, May 25 2012.

Pale golden pour with a thick white head. The aroma is a little bit spicy. Noble hops that resemble their lupulus quite a bit. Not really German in terms of wheat profile at all but there is a nice peppery character. A touch of light clovey spice on the back of the palate as well. Pretty nice really.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
My Bottom Line :
Citrusy hop resins and subtle banana esters reach creamed corn allusions in this polished, but overly eclectic brew.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A rich head of foam stays atop the hazy blond.
-The nose is not bright and hoppy enough for a brew billed ’Hopfenweisse’.
-The creamed corn component is disturbing once your nostrils have latched on to it. As these guys always brew clean beers, I’m going to say this oddness is a contribution of Frontenac wheat malts...
-Mouthfeel is cushy and highly satisfying.
-Wheat is too important in the flavor profile and aroma for what is billed as a Hopfenweisse.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2012 2012-10-05. Bright yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is odd, earthy grassy hop combination. 6+ Flavour is similar, fairly bitter grassy straw like hop profile, odd sort of earthy not quite smokey character. Odd. 6+ Average plus bodied palate. Okay, did not particularly care for it. 6/3/6/3/12-13 Bottle shared by DuctTape
2012-08-22. Hazy orange body, small white head and lace. 3+ Flavour is a bit odd, sweetish pale malt and wheat. Odd grainy sort of peasoup like vegetal character, light bitterness. Modest aroma is a bit odd, vegetal/pea soup, smoke? Light sweet floral comes out second, light grass. Average plus bodied palate. 3+ Really odd, will try it again if I have a chance - a sharp departure from what I expect from Trois Mousequetaires! 6/3/5/3/12 Draft at Volo, Toronto

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with the wife. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft spicy notes and a lot of almost vegetal wheat and herbal notes, loads of wheat. Medium bodied, huge amounts of carbonation. A bit of spicyness, some lemon notes, and then that faint vegetal hint from the nose that I tried to dismiss, comes back in force. Evens out a touch, but still not amazing. Bitterness on the finish, somewhat empty. Disappointing.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2012 August 3, 2012 - on draught at Volo. Hazy gold with a smallish white head. Beautiful aroma, tangy fruit, some alcohol, very yeasty and sneakily hoppy. Taste is mostly grassy hops, fruit cocktail, a little alcohol - a little tropical and overripe, in a good way (8-). Average body, solid carbonation, yield a medium length pungent bitter acidic finish - nice one!

Draught at Volo. Hazy yellow-gold with a small diminishing frothy white head. Aroma of fruit and smoke foremost followed by caramel malt and spices. Flavour of caramel malt, light smoke and some fruit. Average to medium bodied. An odd beer, I didn’t love it but it’s interesting and O.K.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft: Poured a dirty beige/yellow color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of banana ester with rich wheat malt notes and light citrus hoppy notes. Taste is a wonderful mix between some citrus hoppy notes which are well balanced against some wheat malt with light banana ester. Body was pretty full for style with good carbonation. This was a great drink and something the brewery should consider bottling.
