Cloudy appearance, good head.Good yeasty and spice(clove) and fruit (bannana) aroma, well carbonated. German yeast. Medium mouthfeel, although not as creamy as would be expected. Drying finish. Another good hefe, an easy to quaf. Their beers are distinct from each other.

Tap from the brewpub: Poured a hazy dirty orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some retention. Aroma of banana and cloves ester are really dominant with great notes of wheat malt. Taste is a mix between medium sweet wheat malt with great notes of banana and cloves ester. Body is full with limited filtration and great carbonation. Very refreshing and very well done for the style.

A clouded orange murky brew, a white firm head, good lacing.

Smelling of oranges, pears, clove and cardamom.

Sweet sugar, bitter orange marmalade, spices; clove and cardamom.

Medium low carbonation, small foamy bubbles, soft and refreshing feeling, a good body.

A fresh, slightly sweet summer beer.

This beer appears to have been re-brewed. This version is also 5.0% abv.

Mild head for the style--no lace. Lemon yellow color and appropriately cloudy.

This has a classic blé (that's wheat for us anglophones) aroma. Attractive.

Tangy and spicy in addition to the typical weizen flavors, this creates an interesting offering. Very good body with a high level of carbonation.

Bottom line, this is one of the more interesting hefe's imho.

This beer reminds me of their « Blanche de l'Amère » (that they haven't brewed since a while...). Mouthfeel was pleasant with some bananas and spicy clove aftertaste. A appropriate beer for the summer on their terrace : soft and refreshing; however it doesn't really compare with better representatives of the style.

Another pint consumed at the bar in the brewpub. This pint was a cloudy caramel colour with a short, whitish cap of very fine bubbles. Sheets of lace coated the glass until the beer was half gone. The aroma was grainy and full of cloves and banana, with a little bit of grassy hop character. The flavour was more of the same, with a little bit of caramel sweetness thrown in. Unfortunately, there was also some chlorinated phenol flavour that became more apparent as the beer warmed. It had a medium body and was smooth, but felt a little dead due to lower than expected carbonation. It was easily drinkable, but a little off style and had some issues.

Had this on tap at L'amère à boire brewpub in Montréal during a weekend pubcrawl

A: Bright yellowish colored, very cloudy with foamy head served in a 0.5 L pint. Beautiful!

S: Wow, this reminds me of the fruit alley at the supermarket! Banana, starfruit and other tropical fruit aromas. Clove also pokes its nose.

T: This is all out banana. Deliciously quenching as the taste does not linger on. There is absolutely no bitterness.

M: Very light feel in mouth, soft and cleansing. Very light carbonation, it could've had a bit more.

D: I could drink this all day on the warm days we have the summer. Great quenching qualities and absolutely no alcohol taste.

Overall, very impressed with this beer. Serves its purpose perfectly on warm and sunny summer days.

A truly fantastic hefe. Classic appearance, with a clouded yellow body and a frothy white head. Strong banana esters in the aroma. Lots of banana bearing through in the flavour, with a solid grain background, and a pleasant malty sweetness. Almost so much banana as to be considered a fruit beer! Mouthfeel and carbonation is maybe a little light and could do with some beefing up, but this is a fantastically drinkable hefe regardless.
