Hazy golden coloured body with a ridiculously large eight to ten centimetre tall pure white head that doesn't seem to quit growing - the can was a bit tight too, so I knew it might happen. Aroma of grass, hay, wheat, yeast, alcohol and a big dose of citrus and especially curacao. Medium-bodied; Candied orange flavour at first with the big dose of coriander seed freshness, a lot of grain, some light spices and a sweet grassy and floral kick with a big note of pure oranges that show through the funk and bready yeast. Aftertaste shows a nice complexity, but robust sweetness from the oranges, yeast, bread, dry grain and alcohol that all pop out within the lifespan of this one. Overall, a very nice and elegant german-styled hefeweizen with a big kick of the breadie yeast and pungent funk from the curacao and sweet orange notes throughout that ends well with a dry quality and a bit of extra sweetness on the end. Great to sample and well worth trying to find, packing it in your suitcase and drinking it later! I sampled this 473 mL can purchased from Au Coin Duluth in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on 18-September-2016 for CA$2,99 sampled at home in Washington almost a full year later on 05-September-2017.

Bière blanche de 5.2 % d’alcool. Elle possède un odorat citronné et orangé. Elle ne possède aucun col au versement. Elle possède un goût légèrement salé et citronné, avec comme un goût de jus d’orange dilué. Elle a comme un goût métallique aussi, mais le goût disparait rapidement. Très bonne !

A: Hazy straw yellow, small but persistent head of foam, minimal lacing.
S: Banana, clove, wheat yeast.
T: MIX of cloves banana and wheat. I’m thinking, this fits.
M: Kind of thin bodied but not out of the realm of the style.
O: An ok example of the style but not an exemplary example. Glad to try it. KansaiBeerLvrs (5511) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2016
Can. 12 Hefeweizen 5.2%
An opaque orange honey gold with a big yeasty clove/lemon meringue or type aroma. Light bodied and yeasty cloves, wheat, and orange blossoms flavor. Pretty good 3.3-3.5 malrubius (3088) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 12, 2016
Can. Cloudy golden orange with long lasting head and some lace. Nice banana and subtle clove aroma but there’s a hint of something vegetal in at. Nice soft honey peach fruity wheat tangy sweetness with mild mineral and hay bitterness in clean finish. Medium very soft body. I can’t place the aroma thing, but I’m going to give this the benefit of the doubt -- maybe it’s me -- because this tastes and feels like a top notch hefe.

16 oz. can purchased at 7 Eleven, Kittery, ME. Canned on 6/3/16. Lightly hazy golden color with slow dying head. Aroma is banana, clove, light amounts of bubblegum. Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - JUL 5, 2016
The flavor has cereal grain base with the correct German yeast byproducts. The carbonation is low but for me it’s still ok. The body is medium with all the correct flavors and no flaws. I killed the can easy, but I really enjoy the style overall. I feel some have been a tad harsh to this.
Draft at On Tap Bar & Grill, Essex Junction.
Yeah, so they poured it into a pint glass, but I think I get all appropriate characteristics of the style for this one. Here’s the rest.
The appearance was a cloudy burnt rusty orange color with a bar pour’s kind of slim white head that quickly dissipated.
The smell started off with all of the normal characteristics of a good hefeweizen = strong sweet bubblegum up front and then the banana esters and a sly amount of clove.
The flavor is basically the same. But the aftertaste leans more towards the sweet bubblegum than expected with a definite sweet bubblegum finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a spectacular sessionability about it. Carbonation rides fairly light. Some stickiness, slightly leaning towards the bubblegum, clove doesn’t hit as hard as could have been like some other hefeweizens.
Overall, I’d say its a good one for the most part, could be a decent starter hefeweizen for people who like the sweeter side of a hefeweizen. I didn’t mind for me. Viper666 (3290) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2016

Howler Purchased at brewery’s tap room in S. Burlington,VT. Enjoy the hazy, yellow-gold color and it’s aroma with banana and pear as well as a bready smell. Fruity, bready, grassy tastes with light carbonation. A watery aftertaste is a negative, however, a very nice beer. Glad to see them in my neighborhood!
