Tapped at the Syndicate Restaurant and Brewhouse in Niagara/Canada. Overall not a bad wheat beer, but the character was not as complex as I expected. Mild banana aroma, some spices, nothing really impressive. Hazy golden collor typical for an industrial lager, I missed the thick orange golden color of a good wheat beer. Stable white head. Taste is initial banana and dominant hops, a bit watery, hoppy and some spices, too. Not bad, but once was enough

Slightly hazy and golden colour. Aromas of muted banana, clove and yeast with a hint of vanilla bean. On the palate it proves tart with a lemon zestyness and has a flavour reminiscent of apple pie. Meh, it is okay but not gonna order this one again.

bottle. Poured pale hazy yellow with a wisp of a head. Aroma is full of spicy clove and banana. Light mouthfeel, a touch dry. Typical wheaty flavour with yeast and citrus notes. I wouldn’t have known there was vanilla is this brew if it weren’t in the name. Not too offensive.

Had on draft @ the brewpub in Canada, last night of the trip .. . pours a light pear juice .. hazy .. mild foam, lacing is good .. . basically just light wheat and vanilla .. is quite dry . . its an alright beer but the vanilla isn’t warranted .. . . there’s cheese in the air!
Earlier Rating: 8/21/2012 Total Score: 2.8
Had at the Syndicate .. poured a hazed amber pear .. good foam .. sweet hay, light banana and light vanilla .. a thinner wheat with the vanilla, made for the tourists ..

Ontbeertaster (2338) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2011
Taste is quite nice, it has a common flavour of a wheat beer at the front, and a nice hint of the vanilla at the back, overall very drinkable and would have again

Pint/Growler @ TAPS, Niagara Falls, Canada. Hazy yellow blond pour. I wish it were truly unfiltered, but you can’t always get what you want. Nice banana nose, very fruity + sweet. A subtle hint of vanilla in there, too. Pretty complex features on the nose, really. Medium bodied, goes down very nice. A little on the sweet side - not a bad thing! - hints of vanilla, honey, cloves, cinamon. Really nice taste and an excellent entry from the Taps guys. Loving their beers!
