La Shawinigan Handshake est une bire voile la couleur pche, qui exhale des parfums de brioche, de banane et de sapinage propre sa levure allemande et au houblon Chinook qui la composent. Dune effervescence explosive, sa bouche rappelle dabord la banane, puis prsente une finale sche et sapine. Translation: Shawinigan Handshake is a peach colored beer, full of cinnamon bun, banana and spruce aromas that come from the chinook hops and german yeast used for its making. A highly carbonated palate presents banana flavors at first, followed by a dry resinous finish.

Intense foam and hazy darkened straw. Deep fried bananas and a faint citrus nose, heavily carbonated. Almost chewy, a lighter yeast flavor with a clean banana and faintly tropical finish.

sulawang (1143) - - JAN 5, 2017
Visual: (Their own bottle for their brewery, raised lettering and devil on the bottom, odd size 600ml). Pours almost clear pale light orange with smallish dissipating head, ringed retention, clusters of fast active streams.

Nose: light peachy banana wheat malt. (lvl-3)-pungency

Attack: smooth thick CO2, micro-tingly crisp

Mid-palate: bright fruity banana, (lvl-4-sweetness), pineapple grainy wheat malt, tangy light alcohol

Finish: bready barley malt, banana wheat malt exhale

Summary: Solid quality mouthfeel and a robust wheat-barley malt body. It made me feel bloated one glass in though.

hawthorne00 (3817) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2016
Bottle. Hazy gold, head is 6 inches on the first pour. Aroma of toasted bread, vanilla, banana. Sweet biscuit and bread, some banana, spices creep up along with bitterness. Peach bubblegum. Palate has a convincingly German thorough maltiness that just falls away a little soon. Pretty good. No convinced its all that fresh, but there may be swings as well as roundabout there.

Aromas of banana, clove and wheat. Appearance is a golden yellow, with spotty lacing. Taste is banana, clove, bread, apples, white pepper. Palate is medium bodied with a dry and very mildly bitter finish. Overall- Enjoyable, I was expecting more hops but it might be a bit old.

Bottle into glass. Pleasant wheat and banana aroma. Pours cloudy pale golden with white head. Has a light sweet taste followed by a sour finish. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. A very nice example of a Weizen Bock.

Bierdimpfe (633) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 1, 2016
Hazy pale straw color with tons of powerful activity. Extra foamy and frothy 4 finger sparkly explosive island head in the weizen glass, lasting around 10 minutes, with some average leggings. Aromas of fresh flowers and zesty lemon. Flavors of lemon, sweet grains, yeasty bread, noble hops, fruit esters, floral and herbal spices. Balanced and delicate subtle flavors of sugary fruits with a nice sharpness. Grainy and wheaty roasted bread feel. Smooth light to medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Well intensified medium strength finish, ending with a spicy and yeasty tongue coat, some fruity citrus and floral feel. Overall excellent quality craft offering an incredible smell and great flavors that feels much like a belgian tripel. Very sexy and well balanced, nice intensity, and quite complex. Although well refreshing, its a little vinous, highly acidic, with a faint metallic feel.

jksipa (864) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2016
Bottle from NB Liquor. Cloudy pale orange amber with a fluffy off white head that recedes gradu ally and leaves some sparse lace. Nose is banana, cloves, resin, light peach and citrus peel. Flavour follows with a lightly sweet honey supporting a lightly bitter grass in essence with a touch of lemon tartness and a balanced spice throughout. Mouth is medium and chewy with prickly carbonation. A great combination of elements that works well. 9-/4/8-/4/16
