3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very strong hefeweizen, with a sour aroma and a flavor that I could only describe as slighty souring pinapple. If Widmer Brother’s is a smooth Hefeweizen, this is perhaps a little opposite, offering a more alternative flavor charecter inherrant in quite a few Maritime brews. Definately an experience, but not nessasarily refreshing.

Tap. Pourd hazy amber color with an average fizzy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate sweet malt, citrus, yeast aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus sweet flavor with a sweet finish of average duration. Weakest of the brews I tried from this brewer.

A nice cloudy beer that is pretty surprisingly unwheaty. Flavor is light, downable and good. Simple yet drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ the brewpub. Pours opaque hazy gold with straw highlights and bright white head. Classic look with some sheet lacing to boot. The aroma is mild with grain malts, a hint of wheat and a vague hoppiness. The taste is non-wheat maltiness up front with hints of grainy malts and faint wheat. The wheatiness does grow to go along with notes of ripe banana and a hint of bubble gum as the finish approaches. I also get a hop bite tingling away in the background. Pretty nice hefe.
