Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2009
In short: A standard crisp Hefeweizen that sticks to the basics of the style. Well brewed but very standard.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy blonde body topped by an off-white ring of foam
In long: Nose shows stripped-down basic hefe beer elements with wheat and some banana esters. Taste is a hefe without bells and whistles. Almost no spiciness, orange peels or any other occasional hefe flavour elements. Nice body with a lot of wheat with a moderate banana flavour. Pleasantly not sweet. Very clean and crisp and refreshing. Really basic except for a more-than-average floral hopping. Semi-dry finish. This is a well done clean refreshing beer but it also exactly like too many others. This brewery makes some world class beer but this one won’t win any medals. Or maybe it will. But not in the 100 meter dash. I’m sure of that.

TURDFERGUSON (4068) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Tap at CBC. Hazy golden, small white head. Familiar Hefe nose, not over the top like too many American interpretations. Very nice, clean, refreshing flavor that balances the hops malt and wheat very well. Usually not a big fan of the style, but this is very well made.

Included in sampler flight. Sitting at the brewpub with a sampler flight in front of me as I type. A very well done hefe this is. Very light and refreshing, One of the more drinakable wheat beers I have had in awhile.

Lubiere (14240) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2009
A hazy blonde weizen with a thin white head. Light pleasant banana esters in aroma, cloves, pungeant and interesting. In mouth, a nice clean weizen with light fruityness, more wheaty and oily than expected. Nice offering. On tap at brewpub, July 1, 2009

Sammy (12984) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2009
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Tons of lace that follows a yellow body with noticeable white head. Creamy mouthfeel, clean and refreshing taste. Good example of the style. Fresh aroma.

The pour reveals a hazy yellow color with a thin white head. Pleasant aroma of bubble-gum and cloves. Interesting flavor of bubble-gum and cloves, there’s a shy presence of fruity esters. The body is light with an oily texture and gentle carbonation.

3.4
Beerlando (3343) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a very hazy, glowing, tangerine-amber color. A frothy, snow white head is large at first but fleeting, leaving soapy clumps to slowly lumber their way back to the surface. Aromatics include bubblegum, fresh wheat, candied orange peels, freshly grated clove and cinnamon. Flavors take more of a turn for the sweet, with notes of candied sugar accompanying the fresh wheat grains, vibrant citrus rinds, and earthy, fall spices. A surprising yet welcomed addition of floral hop bitterness shows on the finish, adding balance. The body is medium to light, with a lively carbonation. Overall, this is a crisp, clean above average Hefe with a bright citrus profile and a lightly spicy, hoppy finish. I enjoyed it.

bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2008
(Draught) Pours a cloudy pale yellow body with a small off-white head. Aroma of banana, clove, pepper, light florals, and lemon. Flavor of banana, wheat, and clove. Descent Hefe.

3.7
Oakes (19363) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2008
Hazy golden. Clean, well-balanced with some banana, vanilla, marshmallow character. Off-dry finish. Yeasty, maybe even coriander accent. Well-made but it didn’t captivate me.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2008
On draft at brewpub. Pours a very cloudy, almost opaque, gold with a white head. The aroma is strong of wheat malt and weizen character (banana, soft fruit, cloves, pepper). The flavor follows the nose - a nice dose of fruit and crisp wheat. The finish is crisp, malty with wheat, and somewhat dry. The mouthfeel is strongly carbonated, crisp, and medium in body. Overall, a great, delectable hefeweizen that was deliciously appropriate - both to style and to season.
