This is a pretty nice basic Hefe. Sticks to sort of a" classical style hefe" Pours a nubilous, murky yellow straw. Small tight bubbles that fade to a light film very quickly. The nose is citrus and bananas. The taste to start is strongly banana and candy sugar with a bit of clove and copper.The middle is carbonated and slightly citric.the finish swings back to candy bananas. This beer has a light to medium body and goes down well, it is slightly more enjoyable on the colder side.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2009
This poured a hazy light gold colour, moderately carbonated, and with a smallish white head. Aroma was subdued and pleasant, being the prototypical hefeweizen. Taste and aftertaste were nice, a tiny bit of sweetness being detectable at the end. Mouthfeel also not bad.

(660ml bottle) No head with a heavy clouded golden body. Mildly unripened bananas with a mellow lemon finish. Good.

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 21, 2006
650ml bottle. Cloudy yellow-orange looks good but the head is a little thin. Soft banana and cloves scent although the cloves take a little seaching for. Very drinkable and refreshing. Juicy fruit flavour with a little chewy dust in the body. Flavours of banana and citrus. Nice and decent for the patio but just off the mark somehow.

Lubiere (13566) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2006
Hazy golden weizen with a thin dissipating white head. Light banana and cloves in aroma. In mouth, oily mothfeel, with light bubblegum, bananas, and cloves. Medium bodied. Honest little weizen for the summer. June 18, 2006.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2006
Fading white head covers the undefined cloudy golden shade. Phenolic (cloves, medicine) and yeasty nose goes for mostly straightforward banana aromas. Underlying tart breadiness escapes from the most simple example, but it lacks a bit in structure. Direct banana punch, well defined in its wheat character, but mostly separated fruity, lemony flavours to pair along, each walking in the same direction, but meters apart rather than as a group. Light bodied, defective carbonation is just too light.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2006
Murky yellow body with a bubbly medium sized white head. Nose is lots of clove and some banana and lemon. The flavour is wheaty with some clove and banana. A nice citrus comes through as it goes down. A little thin a finishes with some acidity.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2005
Pours a light golden colour with a thin fast fading head. Aromas of banana, clove and some honey. The taste was all hefe but quite thin and watery.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2005
650 ml bottle, thanks Oakes. Cloudy orange-amber beer with a thick white head. Aroma of overripe banana, light clove, a bit of yeastiness, thin malts. Flavour is quite estery as well, thin bready malts, banana and light spice with a bit of perfuminess. Texture is quite watery though. Would have liked this fresh.
