4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy lemony yellow, thick dense white head displaying excellent retention and leaving thick lace down the whole glass. Very robust clove spice, soft banana, and musty yeast aroma. Heavily phenolic palate with the spiciness taking center stage, a creamy banana smoothness rounding it out, and a nice tart finish. Possibly the best Canadian-made hefe I’ve had, (along with Tree Brewing’s limited release)!

bottle. Neon cloudy yellow, low white head. Candyish clove nose. Dry clove notes dominate the flavor, sugary sweetness, dry finish and spicy light almondy aftertaste. light but chewy body. Definitely not the worst rendition of a hefeweizen I had.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Purchased 4 in a mixed Whistler 12 pack for the office. Even a card inside the box telling you how to pour an unfiltered wheat beer. The liquid was a little pale before the yeast was added. Big white head. Banana and light clove scent with a strong sharp chemical background. Flavour is chalky orange with a chemical bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle pours a pale golden orange color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is light citrus, banana and some yeast. Taste is light malts, citrus and banana with some cloves. Light body with decent carbonation. A decent easy drinking wheat beer that is quite refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2008 Mildly cloudy blonde with wheaty cream head. Appealing clove and wheat flavors. Piquant, refreshing flavors of wheat and clove that walk the line between German Wheat and Belgian Witt. Subtle yeastiness. Impressively crisp and piquant. A flavorful, sessionable wheat beer that deserves to be on more taplists.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small-ish head and a decent cloudy orange body. Soft citrus and wheat aromas, slightly fake but barely noticeable. Flavour is a good mix of wheat and grain flavours followed by a sour and dry finish on the tongue. Simple and refreshing; worth checking out.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I really enjoyed this Hefe. The pour is a cloudy orange-yellow with a thick finger of yellow head. The head dies to absolutely nothing, but regenerates easily. the note is quite bland with a light German yeast, toasty malts and light hops. The taste is awesome though, with a beautiful citrus yeast ester and nice spiced finish. The malts are of light caramel and toast with a light hop. Overall, this is a nice session hefe with a good yeast and German character.

Fantastic look to this one. Icy frosted yellow cream colour with medium weight head. Interesting nose....mustard and sour mash combined...almost balances too! Taste has a hop entrance followed by a smoked marshmelllow middle and a flaxy cereal medium-long finish. Good complexity and a worthy effort beer.
