Poured bright orange and cloudy, with a surprising head for a weizen. Fantastic aroma with a great balance of light hoppiness and belgian spiciness. A pleasure to breathe in, over and over. Taste is huge, full of fruity esters...cherry, pear, banana, and pepper flavours dominate. Lots of great spicy notes with notable clove and lemon zest tones. A bit of hop bitterness brings you back to its essential beeriness and the mouthfeel reminds you of the malt sweetness. Actually much better than many (most) german Hefeweizens Ive tried. A gem of a beer.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2005
Pours a clear golden color with a ring of white lace. Mild aroma of banana and spices. Mild flavor of banana and spices. The body is medium with a creamy texture and strong carbonation.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2005
Fully diminishing white head quickly leaves all alone a clear light amber shade. Faint malts dont offer much in the sense of flavors, but spiced herbs and flowers. Unfortunately, an assault of banana and apple, peachy, mustardy and phenolic off-yeast work kinda ruins it all. White wine bandagey and creamy chaotic. Very light bodied, astringent yogurt residues.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2005
Purchased at Broudys, Orange Park FL. Cloudy golden beer with a fizzy white head that disappears instantly. Aroma is yeasty, banana, hefeweizen goodness. Flavor is pretty good, but not up to the standards of the best German hefes. Lemony tart (maybe a bit too tart), with the spices and yeasty flavors. Its good, but not truly excellent. Still, nothing to complain about.. I enjoyed it.

Bottle. Nice german style wheat. Estery banana, touches of clove. Soft smooth palate, with some light saltyness in the finish. Very nice.

Light hazy yellow. Aromais sweet with a good dose of banana. Very citrus and lemon flavor. A little on the sour side.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2005
bottle. foggy, golden-orange body with a very short-lasting white head. aroma has a metallic essence, along with faint fruit esters, carbonation, and yeast. overly carbonated. cereal grains, and a little bit of fruit in the beginning. finish is mildly spicy. decent. this weizen leaves much to be desired.

mikeben (355) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2005
Very good. I was surprised as this is worlds away from their other beers I have tried. Just simply a grrat Weizen with a little less cloudyness then normal. Good bubblegum fllavor

shrubber85 (11220) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2005
Bottle. I was very skeptical that this would be very good and could hold its own against German Weizens but was surprised. A fairly unexciting bubblegum aroma. Orange yellow color - slight cloudy with small head. Sweet orange, banana, and clove flavor. Actually holds its own and a fairly decent Weizen.
