COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Naturally brewed, subtly complex. An aromatic, unfiltered wheat ale. Golden-white, cloves, banana and a hint of citrus. Surprisingly refreshing. Brewed exclusively with Whistler Glacier Water. Born in pristine icefields, naturally filtered by the mountains themselves. Whistler Glacier Water is brought directly to the Whistler Brewing Company to create a pure and truly refreshing brew.

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)!

7/9/08 On draught at FX McRory’s, Seattle, Wa. Aroma has strong placticy/clovey phenols followed by muted banana yeast and low sweetness. Aroma is hazy straw with a well maintained white head and good lacing. Flavor is Clove/pepper phenols forward, balanced by lightly creamy non-sweet banana and medium bittering. There’s a lot going on here, you have to hold it on your tongue to get it all. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with lingering pepper, a strong spritzy carb texture and good creaminess. Overall, great complexity, and while the plastics are strong in the aroma, the sweet flavor balances it extremely well.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2010
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.

Lagerboy (1172) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2011 Whistler brews seem to be totally hit or miss, and their weissbier is definately a hit! Lovely citrus orange, banana, and spicy clove aroma and taste, very nice. Lagerboy friendly.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 12, 2008
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.

bulldogops (1039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 11, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2009 Bottle. 5%. Hazy orange pour, very cloudy, with a frothy white head, decent retention. Aroma is bananas, oranges, and cloves. Taste is grainy, but sweet and smooth with a hint of banana in the finish. Absolutely superb. A great Canadian weissbier. $11.99/6 @ Albertino Liquor Store

DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
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.

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.

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.
