750ml bottle. Pours an intense orange, a little cloudy. Head is small, little retention and almost no lacing. Aroma of orange, coriander, yeast, grass and dried fruits. Strong taste of grains, yeast, spices and bananas. Very decent.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
In short: A watery filtered hefe. Very bland
How: Bottle 750ml swing-top. Consumed a few months after purchase
The look: Clear
In long: Basic nose of wheat and some bananas. Taste is weak, body is a bit watery (why do you filter a german hefe?), soft hay, some bubblegum, notes of ginger. No hops. There was nothing offensive about this beer, but it was just very very bland. I drank this bottle while my wife was beside me drinking a bottle of Schneider Wiesen Edel-Weisse and the Muskoka felt so totally outclassed by the Schneider it wasnít even funny. And now Iím pretty pissed Muskoka for making this bland beer and Iím pretty upset at me for buying it and to be honest Iím pretty pissed at everything, itís just that Iím always very grumpy before I have my coffee, and I donít drink coffee.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Swingtop bottle. Clear gold pour with white head. Aroma is very wheaty, lots of cloves, light banana. Taste is quite spicy, lots of cloves, again light banana flavors, sweet. Palate is on the heavy side of things to my liking, a tad syrupy. Not bad, juste slightly heavy.

750ml swing-top bottle summer 2011 edition. Pours dark hazy yellow with an okay white head. Wonderful aroma of banana, cloves citrus and hefe yeast. taste is sweet with banana, what and hefe yeast. Overall a pretty good beer but doesnít compare to the top German Hefeweizens.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2011 summer weiss, from bottle. Not much experience iím weissebiers. But this is very pleasant, no need to restrict it just to the summer. Initial pour is clear golden but the classic weiss trick of rolling the bottle with the last of the beer adds the remaining yeast and stereotypical cloudiness. Sweet and fruity, bananas and some spice coming through. definitely one Iíd have again, another cracker from Muskoka.

750ml bottle from 2011. Clear gold with off-white head. Orange zest, banana, what, yeast, coriander, very light and refreshing. Mild sweetness, thin, finishes with a bit of skunkiness. Has potential but doesnít deliver.
