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!

Oakes (15615) - 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.

jercraigs (9835) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2006
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

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!

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

[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.

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)
