Eructoblaster (4106) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2010
Bottle - 500ml. Nice, cloudy golden body with a fading off-white bubbly head. Wonderful, complex hoppy/yeasty aroma with coriander, citrusy, and vanilla hints. Malty/hoppy taste is very well balanced and hides the alcohol pretty well. It carries yeasty, fruity and coriander notes. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish and leaves a moderate warming feeling. Very good one!

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Tap at Manderes. Big nose of clove and banana. Light golden pour with a white head that thins but stays around. Flavor is full of clove and bananas foster. Theres a lite booziness that adds to the palate. Great feeling in the mouth. Excellent beer.

BrewingFan (251) - Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Pours a dark cloudy amber with minimal head, aroma of hay, banana and bubblegum with a touch of alcohol. Very smooth, medium carbonation leads to a wonderful spicy and citrus flavor along back nicely with a good touch of hops and a somewhat slight sour note, but the finish is very clean and just glides down the throat.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2010
500 mL bottle. Fresh batch side-by-side with a 2-year-old bottle. Colour is Hazybrown-gold, but the older bottle has a truckload of sediment. The aroma is weizenbock meets imperial pilsner meets orange juice - very rich. The hops have faded in the cellared version, but the fullness remains. The flavour is full, sweet, and bitter, with tonnes of orange juice and a lovely, more-than-subtle bitterness throughout. The wheat and yeast contribute to a full body. Again, the hops have faded in the older bottle, but so has the slight alcohol flavour present in the new bottle. Better fresh, but still worthy after two years.

mannika (140) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 26, 2010
500 mL bottle. Pours a very cloudy light amber - some sediment floating around. Aroma is absolutely fantastic. Ripe fruits - apricots and plum, along with some light floral hops. Alcohol comes through in strength on first taste but quickly recedes into a slightly bitter but mostly sweet taste. Very full-bodied, feels almost syrupy in the mouth. An interesting and fantastic beer.

500ml bottle
8.2% ABV
I tried this beer on June 15, 2010 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a murky orange gold into the Erdinger World Cup glass with a thin off-white head. The aroma was sweet wheat malt, bananas, and spices. The mouthfeel was medium/full bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was sweet wheat malt, some light fruit, spices, and a bitter finish.

a funny little thing. very hop-forward at first nose, lots of resiny citrusy effects going on, with some biscuity malt undercurrents. first taste is equally hop heavy, but balanced -- lots of biscuity, doughy maltiness coming right behind the hops, plus more of what youd expect with a yeast like this one -- banana and clove, of course, with some nutmeg in there too. thats more in the finish, though, which doesnt tend to linger. nor does the mouthfeel -- its surprisingly light, really. the sign in Commercials description reads "were hiding this down here because if you find out we have it, we wont get any." well worth seeking out and tasting. great collab,

Frothmeister (783) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a cloudy caramel brown, with an off-white head. Most of the usual hefe-weisse aromas. Banana, dough, cloves AND caramel, with the resiny, peachy citrus aroma of hops very much present. Literally smells like a blend of hefe-weisse and IPA. My two favourite things combined. Big IPA resinous, soapy hops out of the gate, which kind of overpower the hefe-weisse characteristics. The hefe-weisse is there, but its all in the finish. Faint citrus, yeast, and banana with a sweet citrus hop finish. This is some exciting stuff, and well worth the money.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2010
500 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy light orange with a foamy white head. Aroma is, whoa hoppy. Nice aggressive noble hop note, very unweizen, though there is still a but of wheat that is in the background to the nice hoppiness. Spicy and hoppy, very up front. Flavor has a bit more of the wheat character, at least to start. The wheat, bubble gum and clove really start nicely but are pushed out by the hop notes that come out for the latter half. Finishes spicy and quite assertive. Medium body and a softer carbonation. If I was rating this on style it wouldnt do as well but I admit I am fascinated by the merger of the hops and traditional german styles

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2010
Bottle LCBO, Uptown Waterloo. Lovely dark yellow hazy pour, foamy small white head. Aroma of very sharp fruity and zest hops, with lots of yeast in three as well. Taste - tons of sharp fruity hops up front, great lively wheat body to back it up, substantial but not intrusive alcohol to complement. A quenching hoppy wheat that packs a punch, tremendous. But this if you see it, cannot believe we can get it right now at our local LCBOs.
