shaynsawchuk (681) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2012
750 mL bottle. Labelled Muskoka Summer Weiss 2012. Pours a hazy straw yellow color. Active carbonation forms a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Cereal aromas, with lemon and floral notes as well. Taste is dry and crisp, refreshing with a slightly sour finish. Light on the palate, fairly thin and very carbonated. A great quencher.

750ml brown swing top, as "Summer Weiss". Pours the expected golden-lemony shade of yellow, with decent cloudiness. Head is very creamy, very white, foam is clingy. Big clove nose, light lemon beneath it. Taste has dry wheat base, clove notes, light but tart lemon notes. Finish is drying, distant citrus and lingering wheats and even a straw like note. Light body, carboantion is smooth, light. Good drinkability. Good effort from Muskoka.

reebtogi (5357) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2012
750ml swingtop bottle pours a light golden orange color with a 3 finger white head that settles slowly to reveal only a small spattering of lacing. Aroma is lemon and yeast with some coriander and other spices. Taste is fruity and light malty sweetness with a grassy hop and orange zesty bitterness. Light bodied with modest carbonation.

Bottle from LCBO. Pours clear golden, with a big white head. Aroma is yeasty, slightly funky and citrusy. Taste has malt, wheat, delicate yeast notes, and hints of spice (cinnamon being the most noticeable). Plenty of carbonation. Good!

GuillaumeCL (344) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2012
Summer Weiss, 750mL bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy straw orange with a good bit of head that dissipates slowly, though carbonation remains evident. Smell is fairly sweet, definite banana, and some spiciness. Palate is pretty decent with average carbonation a light to medium body. Taste is not quite what Iíd expct, a bit hoppier and less sweet than expected also a bit lacking in aftertaste.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2012
Muskoka Summer Weiss. Hazy straw with a pronounced, white head. The aroma is yeastier than beers of this style usually are, with some lemon as well. The taste is yeasty, with some warming spices - cinnamon, clove, coriander. Medium-bodied, and an appreciable and noticeable amount of hops. This is certainly different from the German standards of the style, and another very solid Muskoka offering.

Jayseppi (155) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2012
Straw gold without much head. Banana, wheat and some spice on the nose. Lots of wheat, orange peel, some clove and banana. Lightly carbonated and smooth. A tad drying on the finish.

bunget (766) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2012
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.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2012
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.
