UPDATED: JUN 30, 2011 2011-03-16, draught at the brewpub, 4-2-5-2-9=22
Served with a lemon slice; cloudy blond color. Aroma of dirty water (pond). Smooth mouthfeel; the final is lightly spicy, no fruits or esthers, and again that feeling of pond water.

Muddy blond color; thin creamy head. Aroma and flavor are very mild, the wheat character too, at least there is a light sweetness to support it. Unoffensive.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Yaletown, Vancouver. Cloudy gold with lasting white head. Lots of banana esters. Creamy banana in mouth, some dry zingyness on end. Yep, best beer here, as Oakes predicted. A certain fullness in the mouth, bit of spice/herb. Definitely in the hefeweizen sphere. Good wheat beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty good. I usually have this when the heat is on. Thin white head on a cloudy golden beer. Strong citrus aroma, with nice yeasty component. Tastes lemony and quite sweet. Gets a bit cloying if you have too many. Good medium length, fruity finish with nary a trace of bitterness.

On tap at the Alibi Room at Sloppy Seconds, pours hazy yellow. Aroma of clove, banana and wheat. Flavour is heavy on banana and clove, with wheat, slight orange peel and a citric finish. Quite decent.

Draught. Small white head. Hazy orange body. Lemon aroma and flaovr. Fresh with the standard sweethess. Waitress put a lemon slice at the edge of the glass which probably infuenced the aroma and flavor. Bad idea.

Banana, clove, lemon, and wheat on the nose. Nice. Pours hazy yellow orange, thin fizzy white head. Flavors of banana and clove up front, wheat, and lemon in the finish. Dry quenching with nice fruity sweetness. Good take on style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at the brewpub in downtown Vancouver (Yaletown sector), Canada. Remember to tell the server to hold the lemon. Pours a hazy straw blonde brew with a thick and creamy white head that has some nice retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of mostly cloves on top a light bready malt with wheat, some banana esters, yeast and a touch of coriander. Taste is smooth, creamy, slightly sweet with flavors of white bread, banana esters, some yeast and cloves. Finish is also slightly sweet and then a mild banana and clove aftertaste.
