Parallel 49 'Banana Hammock Summer Hefeweizen' @ 6.0% , served from a 650 ml bottle purchased for $6.40

A-pour is a hazy gold from bottle to glass with a small white head leaving a minimal lace ring along the weizen glass

S-banana

T-sweet start , bitter finish

MF-big/good carbonation , medium body , mellow on the palate

Ov-ok beer , interesting take on a German summer beer , should give HS 'King Heffy' some friendly rivalry as BC favourite Hefe

Yup, a 70s themed Hefe with a comedy label but it delivers. The taste is big and bold with all the banana and clove notes upfront and ready to party. Like Hale's El Yefe this is a fun beer that is Hefe pushed to the max. Not overly ABV like King Hefe but still a huge Hefe that I will go to many times this summer.

This is a really nice hefeweizen from Parallel 49. It pours a satisfyingly cloudy amber and tastes of ripe banana up front and ends on a slightly more sour, yeasty note. Fairly medium-thick, chewy body. Despite the abundant banana flavors, it doesn't feel overly sweet - it's really nicely balanced, in my opinion. Carbonation is also pretty smooth, not overly aggressive, which makes for some really easy drinking.

The only thing I would've changed about this is the name: Banana Hammock. First of all, that just makes everyone think this will be some banana-infused beer (actually, P49 has had to release a public service announcement on their Facebook to tell people that this beer does not actually contain any fruit). It's also not a very inspired name, I dunno. In any case, if you can get over the name, you'll find a really great summer beer and probably one of the best hefeweizens you'll have had in BC.

650ml bottle bought at the brewery and poured into a weizen glass.

Appearance: cloudy golden colour, like honey or caramel. An inch or so of head which gradually dissipated to a few millimetres.
Smell: Interesting. I definitely pick up the banana, but it's more like banana cream pie than just plain bananas. Yeasty, some sourness.
Taste: banana, banana, banana. Not at all bitter (label says 8 IBU). A bit sweet.
F: medium-bodied. Some heat in the finish.

This is pretty good! It's definitely something different for me, and I'm not sure I'd drink it often, but I like it.
