COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nothing refreshes more than this naturally cloudy wheat beer with yeasty aroma and flavours of banana and clove. Propeller Hefeweizen is made with a special weizen yeast, German Noble hops and equal amounts of barley and wheat malts and finished with higher than normal carbonation.

Cloudy yellow beer with a thick white head. The aroma is quite light but has a nice banana and red apple sweetness along with a bit of soft sweetness. Low clove aroma and flavour but the wheatiness is quite apparent. A fairly nice fruitiness and a touch of honeyed sweetness. It’s a pretty decent pint. There is a nice lemony character on the back of the palate as well as a kiss of tartness.

On tap at Propeller in Halifax. Pours out a hazy straw color topped with a cream head. Aroma was of banana, spice, belg yeast, a little clove, and some wheat. Taste was much as the aroma with a good solid spice and malt back. One of my favorite from this visit.

From bottle. Golden beer with big white head that disappears quickly. Sour fruit, and yeast aromas. Fruit and yeast are predominate in the flavour as well.

pours bright with decent carbonation. In the nose it is cloves and has a touch of belgian yeasts. there are some tree fruit characters in there as well. Palate is slightly sour, some sweeter yeasty notes. It is a decent brew, i wish more breweries in Atlantic Canada would make this style of beer. Overall for its style it is not that expressive but still a decent brew.

Spab (4124) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2010
On tap at the Hart & Thistle. Pours a bright vibrant yellow gold with moderate-sized lacey white head. Aroma of banana, yeast and a hint of clove. Big lingering banana and bubblegum flavour with some yeastiness and a bit of lemon. Very fine carbonation. Light bitterness in finish. Another solid beer from Propeller.

Atheist_Peace (1042) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2010
341ml bottle. Pours cloudy bright yellow leaning a little toward orange with a snow white head that lasts damn near forever and lots of yeast at the bottom. Sweet wheat and clove on the nose with faint hints of banana that follow through on the palate with a good crisp bite after the sweet entry. A personal favourite for hot summer days.

Boutip (6562) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2010
Bottle: Poured a dirty and hazy beige/yellow color ale with a super huge foamy white head with great retention and very good lacing. Aroma of wheat malt with light cloves notes. Taste is quite refreshing though dryer then the style usually suggest with nice cloves notes and no bubblegum notes that the style usually suggest. Body is quite full with great carbonation. Well done though it lacks some character and ester that I usually associate with the style.

OKBeer (1175) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2010
341 ml bottle, production date 3rd week of April (or possibly 3rd week of March) sampled 4/17/09. Hazy golden yellow colour with a fully lasting creamy and frothy white head. Banana and light clove aroma with some lemony and light phenolic notes. Crisp wheaty and lightly grainy malts, light acidity, a touch of banana and clove, and a dry yeasty bitter finish. A bit of a late perfumy or even plasticy bitterness too. Light to medium bodied, refreshing mouthfeel. A bit of a miss out of the gate, I have to get back to this one to see if it has improved.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2010
Bottle, thanks Colin and Kendra, my east coast beer collectors! Thin clear dark yellow with a good size nice looking white fluffy head. Aroma is very nice of yeast, coriander, and a hint of banana. Taste is good - body is a little thin and initial taste is sharp yeast, but it gives way to a nice spiciness and a more full carbonated soft body. Finishes well but hint of odd metallic notes detracts. A pretty mixed bag in taste, bu it did taste nice and fresh, which is a bonus for a beer that has traveled. A decent effort.

the proper elements of banana and clove flavors are present however my first bottle a couple of days previous I found to be bland, on second inspection I find myself quite delighted.
