COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Shawinigan Handshake est une bière voilée à la couleur pêche, qui exhale des parfums de brioche, de banane et de sapinage propre à sa levure allemande et au houblon Chinook qui la composent. D’une effervescence explosive, sa bouche rappelle d’abord la banane, puis présente une finale sèche et sapinée. Translation: Shawinigan Handshake is a peach colored beer, full of cinnamon bun, banana and spruce aromas that come from the chinook hops and german yeast used for it’s making. A highly carbonated palate presents banana flavors at first, followed by a dry resinous finish.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2018 Loin d'être ma préférée du TDD. Peu d'amertume. Goût de bananes difficile à déceler. Descend bien malgré tout. Bouteille de 600ml. Rien de décevant, mais rien d'exceptionnel non plus. Je préfère de loin La Morsure, plus amère.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2018 Arômes de banane, grain, pêche. Mousse blanche, robe dorée trouble. En bouche, amertume surprenante pour le style, puis fruité et finish bien banane. Très effervescent.

Pours a huge frothy head with thick dirty lacing and has a golden amber appearance. Mild malt aromas, as well as citrus and herbal hops. Some grains and light grassy scents. Malty flavour and some bitterness. Light yeasty notes and some mild spices. Also has strong citrus and resin hop flavours. Astringent and tingling mouthfeel/sensation. Smooth and somewhat slick, drying mouthfeel as well. Pretty good and not too bitter. Goes down real easy.

Draught @ Les 3 Singes, Colmar. Cloudy straw golden ale, white foamy head. Grainy, creamy and sweet malts, Belgian yeast spiciness and peppery, reminiscent of Tripel Karmeliet. Good body, low carbonation.

ma premiere TDD, j’avais très hate d’y gouter. J’espérais quelque chose du genre Aventinus, proche mais pas aussi bon.

LouisP (863) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2017
Je m’attendais à un peu plus au nez de cette bouteille de 660mL de Shawinigan Handshake, présentée comme étant plutôt houblonnée, mais je me retrouve devant une bière blanche très dans le style allemand, avec les traditionnelles saveurs de bananes et de clou de girofle. C’est bien fait, fort facile à boire, mais elle gagnerait peut-être à avoir un petit dryhop de houblons noble.

Intense foam and hazy darkened straw. Deep fried bananas and a faint citrus nose, heavily carbonated. Almost chewy, a lighter yeast flavor with a clean banana and faintly tropical finish.

sulawang (1312) - - JAN 5, 2017
Visual: (Their own bottle for their brewery, raised lettering and devil on the bottom, odd size 600ml). Pours almost clear pale light orange with smallish dissipating head, ringed retention, clusters of fast active streams.

Nose: light peachy banana wheat malt. (lvl-3)-pungency

Attack: smooth thick CO2, micro-tingly crisp

Mid-palate: bright fruity banana, (lvl-4-sweetness), pineapple grainy wheat malt, tangy light alcohol

Finish: bready barley malt, banana wheat malt exhale

Summary: Solid quality mouthfeel and a robust wheat-barley malt body. It made me feel bloated one glass in though.

hawthorne00 (5175) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2016
Bottle. Hazy gold, head is 6 inches on the first pour. Aroma of toasted bread, vanilla, banana. Sweet biscuit and bread, some banana, spices creep up along with bitterness. Peach bubblegum. Palate has a convincingly German thorough maltiness that just falls away a little soon. Pretty good. No convinced it’s all that fresh, but there may be swings as well as roundabout there.

beerplace (4397) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2016
On tap at St. Augustine’s during 1st 45 taps annual event with Alex and Josh. Pours a cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma is wheat, fruity, slightly sour. Taste is smooth, fruity. Quite pleasant.
