Light body. Sweet - icing sugar, some understated banana and phenols. Pale tan, cloudy, not so much head though. Slightly grassy notes, phenols, banana, sweet malts in the aroma. A little wet in the finish. I like the structure, but it's too light on the palate for my tastes.

Tap at the Manx Ottawa. Hazy yellow blond with a banana and sulfured rotten eggs aroma. Fresh wheat malt with a hint of lemon (due to slug) and a lighter body. Banana taste is on the synthetic side.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep yellow pour. The nose is a little bit chewy and some distinct DMS. Fairly sugary and sulphury. Meh. Light spice and some dirty banana. Light bodied.

Funky aroma and taste, yeasty, and although not a great example of the style I found this unfiltered beer interesting and one of the better of the Magnotta line. Yellow and obvious yeasty appearance. Average mouthfeel, decent drinkability.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2008 2008=08-10. Cloudy pastel yellow, modest white head and lacing. (3+) Modest aroma of yeasty citrus. Flavour is similar to the aroma, mild yeast and touches of citrus, ends with a tart wheaty zip in the finish. Average plus palate. Simple but serviceable wheat beer. 7/4/7/3/13 - 3.4
2003-06-13. The Wunder Weisse was also excellent, but had more clove flavour than Denison’s. I prefer the Denison’s as I find it leans slightly more towards the fruity side of the equation with just enough clove. I believe that is a result of the yeast strains used but I could be wrong. 8/3/6/4/13 - 3.4 St. Lawrence Market Craft Beer Show.

Lovely banana aroma. Big white head. Superb drink ability, maybe slightly too sweet to be great but well made overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (341ml). Bottle labelled "True North Wunder Weisse" with Magnotta on the cap. Clear pale yellow with nice side-bubbled on the glass, fast-diminishing fizzy white head. Aroma of banana, lemon, pear and maybe cider - sort of wan and sugary, but not nasty or vegetal. Taste is very watery, sweetened lemon and banana esters, and a little alcohol, mildly spicy - not bad, just not all that much there to talk about - very watery mouthfeel, yet sort of thick too, lightly fizzy, lingering tongue-tingle. I’d rate it lower, but I had a Harpoon UFO Hefe earlier today, and this blows that away, even though this is still fairly weak.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow, somewhat flat looking, with a small diminishing white head. Aroma of grain, citrus and yeast. Watery flavour’s kind of sweet with some mild fruit, yeast and a smidgen of spices. Light bodied. Both the aroma and flavour are overly mild, this is pretty mediocre stuff.

[1575-20080810] Tap. Banana wheat yeast aroma. Hazy, pale yellow orange body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Yeasty citrus lemon zest flavour. Medium body is zesty. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ One Duke. Hazed, pale yellow with 1/4 inch thick white head. Not served in proper glassware :-( Mellow hefe aroma. Light citrus, some ginger ale, not a lot of banana here but comes out a lot in the flavor. Spritzy mouthfeel but slight stickiness and thinness finish. Lots of sweet banana, especially in the beginning of palate. Rounds out to almost lime-accented end.
