3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2012 2012-11-15. Hazy dark pastel yellow, good sized off-white head. 3+ Aroma is wheaty, lightly yeasty, grassy touches, muted floral and chalk/gypsum notes. Flavour is pleasant, sweetish wheaty core, moderate estery yeast character, mild fruit, mild bitterness. Light grassy accents and light alcohol in the background is fairly restrained for the abv. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate suits it. Pleasant, dangerously drinkable while chilled, the alcohol comes out slightly more as it warms up. Pretty nice. 7/4/7/3/15 Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto
2008-06-11. Pastel hazy yellow with a small white head. (3+) Alcohol over esters and yeast in the aroma. Flavour is similar with alcohol touched estery pale malt. (7+) Smooth average plus palate. (3+) Okay, but I was hoping for more ’weiss’ character to it. 7/3/7/3/15 Bottle shared by GregClow

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Strongly wheaten aroma with plenty of yeast and grape, light citrus and clove with vanilla and banana cream pie. Touch of caramel. Hazy yellow-golden body with a large, creamy whitish head. Taste is spicy, crisp and lastingly effervescent, only mildly bitter with a bit of dry, dark bread in and around the yeasty side. Love the lemon and clove. Lightly warming and boozy at the end, medium-full body. A strong Hefeweizen with very toned-down Bock notes; well-made, as is to be expected from these guys, but needs more Bock.

16.9oz bottle-pours a big foamy to thin white head and slightly hazy yellow color. Two surprises-the white head and the yellow color. Aroma is bubble gum, yeast, floral/spicy-coriander/pepper hops, secondary husky light malt. Not sure it will be one I’ll like but a lot going on and interesting. Taste is nice medium/light malt/wheat/husky/caramel, bubble gum, yeast, floral/spicy-coriander/pepper, grassy hops, secondary husky light malt. Smooth, medium body, which is a surprise from the appearance and aroma. Good effervescence.

pours cloudy orange/yellow with a huge fluffy white head, the smell is very yeasty with wheat undertones. With the flavor is pick up bananas and spice, nicely carbonated.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear, light colored, huge white head. Lighter than expected color. Yeast, grain like aroma. Flavor is okay, improves with time; wheat notes softening up but is just average. Basically a decent hefeweizen.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Expecting this to look different for some reason. Pours nice slightly hazy golden with delicious and booming white head. Yeasty fruity notes indicate the nose, banana plums and subtle clove spices, ...The body is a lot more spicey, than the nose ( a good thing in my book,) and a tad yeasty and leaves a lingering funky sourness, which is pleasing. Nice mouthfeel and very drinkable. A good example of one of my favorite styles.

Ok..my first rating. Nice aroma of banana and thick, rich head. Great banana flavor with hints of clove and possibly cinnamon. Great beverage and can’t wait to have more.
