COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Shawinigan Handshake est une bière voilée à la couleur pêche, qui exhale des parfums de brioche, de banane et de sapinage propre à sa levure allemande et au houblon Chinook qui la composent. D’une effervescence explosive, sa bouche rappelle d’abord la banane, puis présente une finale sèche et sapinée. 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 it’s making. A highly carbonated palate presents banana flavors at first, followed by a dry resinous finish.

As usual with TDD, pretty much everything you need to know about this beer is in the description above. Bread dough, banana, spice and pine. Sweet, slightly sour, with a dry, slightly bitter finish. Aggressive carbonation. Good shyte.

Beardbeerman (343) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2015
Pours a clouded golden topped by about two fingers of frothy white head showing good retention and lacing properties. The is yeasty, mostly, with some banana in the back. Some piny features come through. The taste is dominated by the yeasts and their fruity/piny aspects. Some breadiness noticed at the end. Very dry and foamy, with a medium body. Cheers!

Pours a murky yellow-gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Very dry aroma of yeast, banana, other fruit and light sugary sweetness. Dry, yeasty flavour, a bit herbal and fruity. Medium bodied. Pretty good.

Stoned99 (1723) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
600ml bottle from Pasquier. Aroma : banana, cinnamon, Belgian yeast. App : hazy golden with medium white head. Taste and palate : medium body, light sweetness, lively carbonation, light bitter finish. Overall : a good representation of the style. Enjoyed the mix of banana and cinnamon in the aroma.

Jannick13 (141) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2015
Very well balanced with that typical weizen yeast taste. Also, the label is one of the best I have ever seen.

This pours a cloudy pale yellow. Aromas of banana cream pie. Flavors are sweet and grainy. Rich banana. Very good stuff.
