Split with rudzud not much of a thanks, but something from the brewer, or more like thankt he brewer for giving Dean tons of beer, but nothing to us, then us lugging this crap back for Dean, so he decided to give us one of them.

Pours a nice fizzy head that hits apart 2 fingers, fluffy even, fades slowly with nice lacing too, very hazy golden banana color.

Nose brings great musty dank resinous hops, floral, citrus rind and pith, light tropical fruits, green papaya mango like fruits, little floral grassy hop too, with faint grainy wheat and grassy malts, nice fluffy malt thing

Taste brings lots more hops, the Mandarina comes through nicely, citrus with tropical notes, green papaya and little mango with nice citrus and pink grapefruit, even grassy floral hops, juicy tropical notes with mild dank resin. In the middle is a mild fluffy wheat, not a ton, light esters and banana too. Finish adds more bitterness, dry and creamy fluffy malt, little sticky, lingering bitter grassy floral hops, touch spicy, nice tropical notes and mild citrus lingering. Big bitterness on the finish. Almost astringent.

Mouth is med bod, nice creamy and fluffy feel, nice carb.

Overall very enjoyable beer, great hops, nice wheat, good esters and banana like characters, great tropical fruits, etc, very enjoyable... but not really a true hopfenweisse as its so much American hop forward that it overpowers the weisse portion of the beer. If it was an apa it would be amazing, although still very good.

Thanks to Dean for hooking us up with this beer for crossing the border with a case of Mousquetaires from the head brewer, seeing how the head brewer didn't hook us up...thanks

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a Very nice hazy golden straw hue with a big fluffy two finger white head that fades to leave sudsy lacing and a nice blanket.

S - Aromas of floral grass, greener tropical papaya and mango, the fragrant American hops do overpower the hefeweizen notes, though, it's still a super pleasant aroma. Light wheat.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Very nice American hop profile with good grass and tropical notes. The hefeweizen notes are a bit overpowered with the wheat being really subtle. The finish is nicely bitter, really fluffy. Delicious.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, crisp, clean, refreshing.

O - Overall this beer was really tasty, awesome Nose and flavour. Now...this drinks much more like an APA than a hefeweizen which isn't a bad thing just different. As an aside, I don't understand why more brewers don't make hop heavy beers with a hefeweizen yeast strain...even if you drown out the hefe flavours and nose that yeast adds a wonderful fluffy aspect to the beer. Seriously, it needs to be done more (ala Cheval Blanc's Gros Bonheur).

375ml bottle. Weizen glass. Tropical fruit intense aromas fly at the moment cap is removed. Bright gold color, clear appearance. White froth, close & lasting crown. Some lacing is left on sides. Heavy hoppiness, citric, resins & intense herbal to the nose as well as honey hues rounded by subtle banana peel notes & underlying bread. Crispy upfront is swept out by citric & piney notes. Light body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Bready texture & fresh mouthfeel. Fruity –some mango hints- flavor, dried touch & bitterness arise in the middle lingering into a long sweet finish. Nice hues of green wood on a dried aftertaste. Gentle lightness & texture as a Weizen but dried & hopped as an AIPA!!

A: Golden in color and just a bit cloudy. One finger of creamy white head. Retention was moderate as was lacing.

S: I get a bit of the typical wiesse smell (Clove, a touch of bannana) blended nicely with some american hops that lean towards citrus. A bit of alcohol if you really search for it too.

T: A bit of sweet malt come through forming the body. This is counter balanced by a nice hop profile. A bit tropical but the hops seem somewhat faded, which is probably a result of it sitting too long in my fridge. It probably would have been much hoppier fresh but it had some nice tropical almost pineapple notes along with the typical grapefruit taste of west coast american hops. I also get some nice clove, bread and a bit of spice from the yeast.

M: Perfect for a refreshing beer. High carbonation but it really makes for a refreshing beer.

O: Really good beer but probably would have been much nicer fresh. I would highly consider buying it again.

From notes

Appearance: It has a nice hazy orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves little lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of wheat malts, citrus, floral hops and some grassy notes.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some wheat, citrus (orange & lemon) floral/grassy hops and faint spices.

Mouthfeel: It has a high carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.
