Tastes a lot more like a Hefe than a Wit mostly due to the big banana flavours in the finish and the hefe like nose. That being said it is a satisfying beer with plenty of flavour and a nice big mouthfeel. Better than most BC wheat beers this is a nice step up for a young brewery.

20oz pint @theunderground in YEG.
This beer pours a hazy, murky golden yellow colour, with one finger of flat foamy, somewhat bubbly dirty white head, which leaves a few low-lying streaks of peninsular lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.
It smells of semi-sweet banana chips, a mild orange peel fruitiness, some faintly spicy coriander, and a subtle earthy yeastiness. The taste is grainy pale malt, a touch of astringent wheatiness, which resolves into a certain fresh-bought banana breadiness, with some pithy clove and white pepper notes, quite underwhelming in their spiciness. A pushy hint of vegetal yeast hangs onto an outside perimeter.
The bubbles are rather complacent and well sublimated, the body a decent medium weight, and actually pretty smooth. It finishes well off-dry, the pale malt, banana, and shy yeast all working it to keeps things on the level.
Well colour me tickled - this is at least an order of magnitude, style-wise, better than the preceding offerings from this brewery. Which doesn't quite place it amongst the worldbeaters out there, but it's at least worthy of a go, especially at this time of year - with the obvious caveats of style preference, and a freaking patio on such a perfect June evening.
