UPDATED: MAY 17, 2013 Draft - Hay, lemon, honey and a little farmhouse funk. Hazy yellow with a thin white head. Crazy hops and the sweetness of the yeast remind me of a Deschutes experimental I once had. Love it completely. hangunder (305) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2013
Juicy citruisy hops predominate on the nose of this one, with a slight sour note and a bit of pine. Not getting many fruity esters, but smells great. Hazy white, more yellow than average for a hefeweizen. Great amount of juicy hops upfront, some pine and a little bit of a flat finish. Very clean and refreshing. Light-medium bodied and quite highly carbonated. Perfect for the warm weather. Overall, hop/yeast profile very similar to a Bellwoods Monogamy, which is definately not a bad thing.

From a 500 ml bottle. Very cloudy bright yellow pour with a thick fluffy white head. The aroma is of incredibly juicy citrusy hops. A lot of tropical mango and a little bit of peppery/noble spiciness as well. Fairly light esters but a touch of bubble gum and some lingering fruitiness. Really inviting aroma - bright fruit and juicy citrus with some nice wheaty character as well. It’s got a solid balance of hops and yeast. A really great take on the style - I could drink this all day long. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 10, 2014
In short: A hefeweizen for the lovers of aromatic fruity new-breed of blonde IPAs.

How: Bottle, consumed moderately fresh, bottle sent to me by
The look: Cloudy yellow body topped by a medium white head.
In long: The powerful hoppy nose is bursting with aromatic fresh tropical fruits, grapefruits and some flowery notes. I didn’t get the hefe part from the nose, smelled to me like a highly aromatic new-breed blonde IPA. In mouth the beer has a nice mouthfeel with a good corpulence, a chewy texture and plenty of soft bubbles. Taste has nice banana cake, wheat, a whole lot of hops blending musky character with fresh tropical fruits. All that ends with an assertive bitterness with mild resinous notes. The flavor profile is a lot more aligned with the unofficial White IPA style rather than the current ratebeer style of German Hefeweizen, and I happen to love White IPAs. Another winner from Bellwoods. Sometimes I drink a good 5% session ale like this one knowing fully well that it is 95% water and I start thinking about how good it would be if it was 100% beer.
Bottle from the brewery. Pours a cloudy bright sunshine-yellow with a large and pillowy white head. Pungent aroma of citrus peel, pineapple, musky hops and lemon oil. Flavour of lychee, lemon peel, pine, unsweetened grapefruit, and a hint of white pepper. Body is crisp with a clean and dry/bitter finish. As others have noted, there ain’t much hefe-ish about this beer, but it’s so bright and tasty that I’m happy to overlook that and give it a great rating anyway.

A murky blonde weizen with a thick frothy lacing white head. In aroma, a nice fragrant hopped up banana weizen wirh light sulfur, catty floral hops, very nice. In mouth, a smooth fragrant weizen with fruity esters, grassy catty hops, well balanced. herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle from brewery. Hazy yellow pour. High delicate carbonation, marshmallow white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, orange, grapefruit, yeast, banana, a little pepper and floral notes. Delightful. A little chalky, medium sweetness on the body. Refreshing citrus bitterness on the finish. It’s generally light an refreshing with a lovely balanced complexity. Very nice variation on a classic style. blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2013
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a hazy yellow with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Pleasant light aroma of citrus hops, light herbs, wheat and grain. Really nice, refreshing flavour of wheat, citrusy hops, citrus fruit, light herbs and
an average dry, bitter finish. Average bodied. A great summer-sipper and a joy to drink.
