COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic unfiltered German style wheat beer with a spicy clove-like, banana bouquet and flavour from the Weinstephan yeast strain. Malty and lightly acidic making this one very refreshing. Garnish with lemon. Prosit!

Draft at brewpub. About a finger of white head. Appearance is an unfiltered yellow/orange. Smell is bananas, wheat and citrus, but the lemon garnish masks the smell some. Taste is banana, lemon and wheat. Very zesty. Palate is medium with lots of carbonation. Otherall, tangy.

My Bottom Line:
Honeyed bananas are bothered by green peppers in this sweet and muddled Weizen.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the opaque beige yellow.
-Wheat stands out by doesn’t work that well with the ample residual sugars (for the style).
-The mouthfeel is not that refreshing due to these dextrins.
-Herbal hops are tasted alongside these green peppers.

On tap at Artisan Café and Brewpub, in Dalhousie

On tap at the brewpub (they listed their seasonal as a wheat beer... I’m assuming it’s this one). Nice, orange color, quite hazy, with a small head and no lacing. Very nice aroma... the wheat is there, but citrus as well and something else pleasant that I can’t distinguish. Smooth on the palate - nice carbonation. Flavor fell a little short of what I expected, but it’s still a fairly good wheat beer whose flavor doesn’t diminish too quickly.

The other seasonal available at the brewhouse (the first being the Oktoberfest)-- and this is the better choice IMHO. On the board, this is titled "Weizen Wheat". It appears as a deep bronzy golden, hazy, with a big dense white head leving plenty of lace. Huge estery banana and spice aroma. The palate is bursting with estery wheatiness, banana, cloves-- all the things you look forward to in an excellent hefe. This beer was the standout of the night by a longshot!

Verre de dégustation à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur de blé et de citron. Apparence: La couleur est blonde légèrement voilée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréale et d’agrume. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Légère présence de poivre en arrière goût. (Rating #699)
