3/5  rDev -15.7%

Can: Poured a hazy pale yellow color ale with a light foamy head with minimal lacing. Aroma of medium wheat malt notes with limited ester. Taste is also dominated by wheat malt notes with no real bubble gum notes and limited ester and a dry finish. Body is light with OK carbonation. Unfortunately this one is a bit too bland for my taste buds.

A good basic North American hefe, not in the same league as the German's stuff, but drinkable.

473 ml can purchased from LCBO. Served cold into a pint glass.

Appearance - hazy yellow in color, not quite as golden as others, capped by about a finger and half of white head, which sadly doesn't make a lasting impression. Bubbles are lively.

Smell- a bit metallic, the clove and banana takes repeated whiffs to come through. Some nice spiciest in there though.

Taste - planty of banana and clove, a touch more on the bitter side for the style. Taste is a shred thin.

Mouthfeel - light bodied but also thin feeling through. Decent carbonation but it is soft.

Overall - a good example of a hefe, but there are other examples that are better. Wouldn't turn it down again, but probably won't go buy it again.

Pours hazy pale straw with virtually no head, and therefore zero lacing. Very light carbonation. Aromas are light banana, and heavy on black pepper. The latter I found a bit strange in this style, but interesting and welcome. Tastes are mainly of sweet citrus fruits, banana, and some wheat. Overall, a decent, quaffable summery wheat beer that would go down easy in any patio or backyard.

Purchased at the LCBO for $2.35 or so for a 473ml can. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well pours with a ton of head that is gone in 10 seconds. Unfiltered and golden good

S- Not much here at all. A bit of coriander but not much

T- Ok but not great. Pretty light and weak. Not much here at all. Sure you can call it a summer beer but there are better.

M- Ok but not all that wonderful. Dryness helps

O- Pretty good but not all that great. Will not buy again that is for sure. Better examples of white beers around for your hard earned money

Food Pairing

This ok white beer will go well with... Monte Cristo sandwiches

Enjoy!!

Cloudy straw yellow with a half inch of white foam on top, kind of dense. Fair head retention, a bit of lace. Sour wheat aroma, a bit grassy with banana sweetness, hint of vanilla. Same in the flavour, but balanced more towards the sweetness provided by the grains and the banana fruitiness from the yeast. Mild, but persistent, bitterness with lingering vanilla and a hint of brown sugar. Medium bodied, lowish carbonation. A respectable beer.

Tall Can from the Ottawa LCBO for $3 or so

Appearance - Gold colour with an average size fizzy/frothy white head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for 4-5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Cloves, lemons, banana, breads/grains

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste cloves, bananas and lemons. There is also a bit of an earthiness and sugary sweetness.

Overall - Tasty but pretty plain. There are a few flavours there, but none are really pronounced. Probably a good beer for those just getting into craft. Refreshing and worth a try but there are many other beers withing this style that are far more interesting.
