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!

[018-20060829] Tap @ Barnyard BBQ (Moncton, NB). Strong banana aroma. Straw-coloured cloudy/translucent body, small bubbly head. Same hoppy yeasty bread flavour as it’s brothers (grainy). Light-medium body, long aftertaste of banana. Very interesting with the chiquitas but otherwise nothing spesh.

Draft at The Barnyard as "Wheat". Golden yellow with a small creamy white head. Muted yeasty aroma, fruity, diacetyl? Distinctive Pump House yeast character in both the aroma and flavour, fruity notes. Originally wrote that it was not to style, but banana starts to come out a fair bit as it warms up. Did not taste much like a hefeweizen at all at first. Smooth light-medium bodied palate. 6/3-3+/7/3+/14

Nice cloudy straw color. nice head with good lacing. Excellent wheat character and snap. Really nails the style.

GiBrew (171) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 22, 2005
Hazy and golden yellow in colour. Citrus fruits and banana flavours and aroma with a fairly bitter finish. Light bodied (Like other Pump House products) but still refreshing.

Hazy light orange color with a ring of white lace. Aroma and flavor of wheat and citrus. Light to medium body, expansive carbonation.

albert007 (415) - Penobsquis, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 10, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2005 Hazy & golden. Nice foamy head. Banana sweetness & candy. Decently bitter taste with the bananas and hints of spice. Nice example of the style. Pumphouse has impressed again. Very refreshing.

Typical banana aroma for a weizen. Banana also present in the mouth, no hop presence though. Generally interesting.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2003
Cloudy, light tan. Big banana, allspice and bubblegum aroma. Sweet palate. Even-handed hefeweizen notes – nothing out of the ordinary, but everything you’d expect. Dry, tart finish helps make this a better-than-average example.

Cloudy gold colour, minimal white head. Light banana and tangy citrus aroma and flavours. Refreshing but light.

A very clean tasting Hefe. Typical cloudyness with a slightly lighter colour than style dictates. It still has the full body required. It has a good balance of clove and banana flavours and aroma with the cloves predominating. Beautiful golden clean hefe that would be closer to Schneiderweiss than Hacker Pfchorr
