Nothing beats kicking back on the deck at the cabin and taking in a classic Manitoba sunset. Our Hefeweizen captures that jovial atmosphere with a hazy golden body from a blend of wheat, two-row pale, and Munich malts. German grown Hallertau hops balance the fruity wheat malts with a light, spicy character. Finally, a burst of banana and clove aromas fill the air due the specially selected yeast culture. Try it with a light meal of grilled bratwurst, hot mustard, and potato salad. Serve at 6 C. in a tall Weizen glass. Bottle will contain sediment – which should be poured into the beer. 13 IBU

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, - OCT 27, 2009
341 ml bottle from MBLC Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, MB, sampled 6/26/08. Hazy orange amber colour with a mostly diminishing fizzy off-white head. Banana, citrus, and lightly spicy aroma. Lemon, banana, and clove flavours with a lemony, lightly acidic, and dry bitter finish. Light bodied, fizzy, but refreshing. I certainly wouldn’t complain if I had a locally made weizen like this in NS.

Brettsky06 (464) - Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 17, 2016
Pours a hazy yellow color with a finger of thick white head. Aroma is banana and cloves. Taste is a little spicy but also a bout sweet. Maybe a little too carbonated for my liking

solidfunk (9006) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Cloudy golden brown pour. Banana, some sour mash malt. Ok for style. Tap at Barley Brothers Stadium.

Patrickctenchi (6623) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle: Pours clear gold with a small white head. Wheat, banana scent. Taste is moderately sour lemon...wheat malt. Surprisingly tart.. Ok, but a bit dull.

shrubber85 (11448) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle. Lemon, banana, light clove and wheat malt aroma. Lightly hazy golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet-tart lemon, light banana/clove, and wheat malt flavor. Light body. Not bad.

exeter (535) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Poured a golden yellow colour with a micro-head to the bottom. Not much lace. Taste is wheat with nice banana, cloves and citrus. Everything is nicely balanced, an easy drinker. I’d buy it again.

UXO (1896) - CANADA - NOV 18, 2014
Pours slightly hazy pale gold with a short loose white head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is wheat, lemon, banana, cloves, bubblegum. (8/10) Taste is low sweet, mild bitter, mild tart/sour, salt(?). (8/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp tart lightly spicy finish. (4/5) That’s different! Light and crisp, with distinct lemony notes and a crisp finish. I just went reading reviews and nobody else mentions it, but I swear this has got a lightly salty finish - heck, it’s almost a gose! I like this a lot, and it’s the second one from this brewery that I’ve really enjoyed - which means they’re officially on my short list for checking out additional brews. (17/20)

markas101 (2466) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 28, 2014
65 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada from Eric. Slightly hazy yellow gold, high carbonation. Resin banana aroma. Some lemon. Nice sharpness, then a mellow sweetness with bubblegum at the end.

ljthiessen (1350) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle. Hazy goldenrod colour, smaller head. Aromas of orange, lemon rind, coriander, wheat, yeast, and a hint of nuttiness. Soft, mellow flavours of citrus and light spices, grains and again, a little nutty. Nicely balanced, easy drinking. One of the better hefeweizens I've tried, without a doubt.

AgentAle (1760) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 25, 2014
Aroma is of yeast, clove and floral sweetness. Taste is the sweet graininess paired with a surprisingly bitter hop character. Appearance is a hazy yellow / amber body. Lace head retains well.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 4, 2013
Pours a cloudy gold with a small minimal white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, clove, light citrus and some bubblegum. Taste is banana, clove, wheat, spicy tones. An excellent balance between cloves and fruity esters. Overall an excellent hefe.
