Quand ce produit est sorti sur les tablettes, je lui ai reproch de faire partie de la gamme Belle Gueule. Pour moi, Belle Gueule a toujours t un synonyme dune bire de soif de qualit... mais pas un synonyme de bire de dgustation. Or, lorsque RJ sont arrivs avec une Hefeweizen, jaurais aim la voir dans leurs gammes de spcialits, parmi les Titanic, Apocalypse et Coup de Grisou de ce monde. Ou pourquoi pas dans la gamme Cheval Blanc? Cette Hefeweizen est carrment parmi les meilleurs dans sa catgorie. Cest vous dire comme je lapprcie. Et je pense, tout btement, que je laurais aime encore plus si elle avait eu sa propre signature, son tiquette elle, hors de la gamme qui ne lui rend pas service. Ds lors, les amateurs de bire auraient pu dire ce produit est exceptionnel au lieu de lancer tiens, une nouvelle Belle Gueule...

Bire orange, trs bien voile avec un aspect brouillard, bonne effervescence, et surmonte dun col blanc plutt mince (surtout pour le style!), moyennement dense et mousseux, mais bien rsistant. Armes principalement de levure, on note une bonne dose de banane bien mre, mais a fait tout de mme un peu levure typiquement belge (et typiquement RJ!), avec, en plus, une petite pointe dacidit vinaigre. Sinon, le malt dgage des effluves de ptisserie et de sucres mi-foncs (miel, lger caramel, cassonade), et on note un peu de clou de girofle en arrire-plan. Nez bien intense, mais ce nest que moyennement complexe et agrable (cest trs ax sur cette souche particulire de levure!). En bouche, ptillement moyen-faible sur la langue, onctuosit moyenne au palais. Au got, pain frais, ptisserie et lger bl (mais a pourrait tre plus vident pour le style). Cest tout de mme assez sucr (sucre brut, miel, lger caramel) comme bire, mais cest vraiment trs bien quilibr par une agrable levure acide assez surprenante. Cette levure est dailleurs moins dominante en bouche quau nez, mme si on note tout de mme une solide trame de fond de banane bien mre, ainsi quun subtil clou de girofle et une pointe herbace (phnols ou houblon?). Lamertume est minimale, voire inexistante. Trs bon got, un peu atypique pour une hefeweizen cause de cette levure un peu particulire, mais a en fait galement une bire fort intressante. Bonne intensit, complexit qui laisse un peu dsirer cependant. En conclusion, il sagit dune bien bonne bire!

Pour is orangey gold with a quick-fading off-white head. Nose is lots of banana, grain, a bit of bubble gum and spice. Taste is more banana, with some bread dough and grassy hops, slight sourness. Simple, well-executed weizen.

Pours a hazy golden with a medium creamy white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is banana-forward but there is also a light clove ghost in the background. Taste is of wheat and banana, mission accomplished. Body is light and carbonation pretty high and prickly. Overall a good hefe, good job RJ!

341ml bottle served in a weizen glass around 6 degrees: So here is the newest addition to the Belle Gueule line, the Hefeweizen. It was brewed especially for Montreals World Beer Festival which took place last June and I was fortunate enough to grab a bottle at my favorite spot. Its part of Brasseurs RJs "Masters Series" and I think it will pop up on the shelves as soon as next year. So, what about this brew.. Well it poured a clear caramel with lots of bubbles and developped about three fingers of an off white frothy head. I found it retained pretty well and left rough lacing. The nose is sweet and very soapy and piny. I cant say I enjoy overwhelming soapy features in a beer, unless Im tasting an IPA or a Double IPA. Maybe the hops are simply too floral but there is a cheap perfume aspect that killed the nose. Malts do come though however, and that kinda saves it if you ask me. Mind you, I never had hefeweizen before, so perhaps Im totally off on this. On the tongue, the same soapy element is present but it is backed up by a pretty strong malt attack. You also get a sort of fruity sweetness I thought was similar to melon. It also added some acidity and tartness to the taste. Hops go pretty far and strong, leaving a powerful soapy/piny finish I cant say I enjoyed very much. It did however hold a good body and rolled nicely on the palate. Overall, this is a fair brew with features I didnt really enjoy. I think the hops are too much at the forefront and they kill the malts and fruity aspect the beer holds, making it soapy and resinous.
