Poured a hazy, light golden color with a big, foamy head that quickly dissipates. Had aromas of spicy cloves and a bit of banana. Was moderately sweet, and had a bit of spice on the tongue. Had an aftertaste of bananas. Really light for a hefe, but it is a nice sessionable beer for a real good price.

Orange, white head, and mid retention. Banana, citrus, mild caramel, wheat, and spicy aroma. Medium bodied, sweet & spice notes, mainly fruity, with lemony notes on the backend. Great balance, nice dry notes, and mild hop bitter notes.

A style I really like, and this is different, but it works. Looks a bit like fruity dishwater; has the right cloudiness but no head at all. Body is light but not watery and well carbonated. Aroma is as it should be: banana, clove and pepper. Taste also has dough and a fruity mix of orange and pineapple.

Small bottle from the cooler at Bottle Jockey in Burnaby. A cloudy yellow beer with generous white head and fruity nose. Tastes mostly of fruit, rather sweet and with some sourness too. Low bitterness as expected. Yes, a very enjoyable beer, and not a bad Hefeweizen, but tastes a bit too much of pineapple for my idea of a perfect heffy. 3.4

Opaque light gold, almost milky - medium white head. Peppery cloves and some barnyard yeast on the nose, almost like a saison. Spicy, sour and sweet notes, some yeast, some light banana. Finishes refreshing, rich and a bit sour. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Dense, bright, hazy yellow body, opaque & topped with a creamy, frothy white head that lasts for days. Aroma full of wheat, baked bread, clumpy yeast, clove, a hint of banana esters, faint pear, straw, maybe even a touch of mint. Flavor follows through exactly with amplified notes of clove, biscuits, banana bread, bubble gum, mint, grass, mild pear skin. Nice finish of clove, bread, a soft blanket of wheat, & a chunky yeast finish. Good body, just on the edge of chewy but still remaining very drinkable. I’ve always enjoyed this beer, really good take on a German hefe.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of classic german sweet esters which brings you subtle banana notes, sweet orange, weak bubblegum, some floral notes and weak hoppy notes. The taste is also rather sweet and refreshing with a more hoppy profile along with those sweet esters, some citrus, banana and orange. Very refreshing and a nice take on the style!

12 oz bottle to tulip. Pours cloudy blonde. Aroma of banana, light clove, orange and mango. Taste is juicy fruit, tropical, sweet malts and a little floral hop bitterness.

Reading some reviews you might think this tastes like a German hefe. It doesn’t. At least this bottle didn’t. The haziest beer I’ve seen due to suspended particulate matter. The blonde color is spot on. The aromas and flavors barely hint at the clove and banana elements characteristic of actual hefe. Not a bad beer but very disappointing when measured against what I was expecting. This is no Ayinger Ur-Weisse. I would not buy this again.

Hefeweizen one of my least favorite styles yet I can appreciate the quality brew that this is. Bit of weizenbock characteristics in this but in a more approachable form. Well done.
