COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the classic 16th century Bavarian hefeweizen style. Pours an unfiltered hazy blond, with a thick white head and a soft creamy mouthfeel. The aroma features complex yet subtle notes – primarily clove, banana ester, and a gentle fruitiness. The palate is refreshing and clean, with a light body that is deeply thirst-quenching.

Where Purchased: 473ml can from the LCBO . Consumed: from a draught glass. Aroma: Smells slightly fruity and wheat-y. Appearance : filtered light gold with extremely thin head disappears immediately. No lacing. Used to drinking unfiltered wheats with tons of head. Taste: very well balanced. Not too sweet and no sign of hops. Missing that wheat yeast taste. Palate : light body. Bittersweet aftertaste. Good carbonation. Overall: Easy drinking beer. Not as good as Erdinger, but still very good. Missing the yeast that is lefty at the bottom during bottle fermentation. A little low on carbonation too. I was glad to try and will maybe buy again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

Ar: Banana and peach skin, medium high intensity; raw, doughy malt. Ap: Straw yellow and uniformly hazy; medium-large white head with moderate retention, appearing as a soda bread of medium to very large bubbles. T: Banana and peach skins; a little cotton candy; medium-low sweetness; bitterness is low, though firm; apricot and lemon peel on the finish. P: Medium-light mouthfeel, very creamy; very high carbonation, excellently rounded; finish is very dry. O: Even though this beer doesn't look that authentic in the glass, the flavors and textures are great; really enjoyable and drinkable.

can. Poured hazy yellow with a skim head. Sweet fruity aroma with a spicy note. Light and crisp with high carbonation, refreshing mouthfeel. Flavour of wheat malt with yeasty esters, peppery spice with notes of banana peel and clove. A typical weizen.

Such a classic wheat beer, hits all the right notes while maintaining a great easy drinking profile.

Solid wheat ale. Reminded me of other wheats but more full in flavor and less citrus. It was the perfect beer for a sunny day

Pretty standard for a wheat - solid but not amazing. Had it on a trip to Toronto this summer. Ended up meeting someone who worked for them and turns out they’re exporting to San Francisco area this year, so I’ll probably have a few more!

Pretty good here! Was a bit clearer than I expected but once you get past that it was delicious. A bit like Hoegaarden!

I really enjoyed this beer. It poured yellow with a white head and had a fruity banana aroma. The beer is very light and refreshing and has a nice citrus and wheat flavour. This is a great beer to enjoy on a nice warm day.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2017 Canned. Something is terribly wrong here. I checked the other reviews and some are about a hazy hefeweizen while others are about what is a pale ale. I got the other one from a can at lcbo. Transparent body, no head, almost no carbonation. Aroma of bananas. Almost no taste at all? A bit stingy with some weak cloves at the end. Edit: I called the brewery and they admitted they didn’t make this. It’s licensing their brand and they apologized for making such a bad beer.
