A hazed blonde weizen with a thin white head. In aroma, ginger pulp with chalk and a bit of sulfur. In aroma, a nice sweet banana malt with cloves and ginger, smooth and pleasant. Cask at Beau’s Oktoberfest Oct. 1 2011.

LCBO bottle. Pours a light yellow with small white bubbly head. Spicy and yeasty nose. Beau signature yeast and mouthfeel, understated pumpkin flavour and a mild spicy finish. Not bad drinkability. More weiss than pumpkin, a changeup for fans of the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2011-11-25. Lightly hazy golden body, nice white head and great lace. 3+=4 Spicy aroma, almost chamomile like? Similar spicy quality to the flavour. Hints at lemon. Sort of perfumey sweetness, odd finish. Avg palate suits it. I did not get much pumpkin out of it. Not my cup of tea, and probably suffers a bit from not being what I expected as well. On tap at Amsterdam Movember Event as Jack O’Layton Weiss, Toronto

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Ginger and cloves ride this Weissbier’s bananas, effortlessly leading to bready cereals and pertinent herbal hop bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the misty golden amber. Retention is low for the style though.
-Mouthfeel is lightly creamy and a bit prickly.
-The added spiciness is well balanced with the rest of the flavor profile.
-Good idea to combine pumpkin pie spiciness and Weissbier yeast character!

Pale orange pour. The nose is lightly fruity. Light ginger and some
fruit. There’s a bit of phenolic notes but it’s subtle. Pretty nice

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[4161-20111125] Tap. Fruity gourd yeast aroma is more herbal bathroom cleaner than yeast. Hazy, light brown orange body with a long-lasting big foamy white head. More bathroom cleaner malt and fruity gourd flavour has a touch of light nutmeg spice and something like chamomile. Medium body. Interesting but not wonderful. (6/3/6~/3/13) 3.1

Smells a little like pumpkin but more on the wheat beer end of the scale. Pours a cloudy orange. Palate is a little watery. No head, medium carbonation. Definitely not worth the eight bucks they charge for a bottle of this. On tap at volos.

Bottle [600ml]. Pours a hazy, very bubbly, copper-gold with an average size lasting frothy white head. Sweet aroma of yeast, spices, herbs, grain, citrus, light sugar, light pumpkin and a hint of hops. Flavour of wheat, spices (ginger mainly along with more), yeast and fruit (citrus and banana). Average bodied. Not much pumpkin in this but the taste is pleasant and it’s easy to drink.
