Notes/Commercial Description:
Seasonally brewed and available in limited quantities, Muskoka Summer Weiss ("vice") is crafted with visions of summer in mind. Unfiltered and naturally hazy by design, the perfect balance of wheat, barley and subtle hopping makes this an intriguingly aromatic, flavourful and sessionable summer wheat beer. To release more flavour, agitate bottle slightly before opening. Cheers to you Summer!

3.55/5  rDev -8.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle poured into a weizen glass. A cloudy bright yellow color, almost banana peel-like with rampant quick-breaking white bubbles. Aroma is strong wheat malt, a bit rank and spicy with banana esters that manage to come across more like those foamy banana 5-cent candies than the legit article, generic nondescript citrus rind, and brown spice. Palate features more of the banana gummy flavor, clove, white bread, and citrus that evolves from lemon to orange. More sour and tangy that many weizens although the tell-tale flavors are present. Maybe I should rate the flavor a little higher but the heavy carbonation and watery body left me wanting. Finish is overly crisp and not enough of the yeast lingers. Certainly has some merit but usually Muskoka provides a more satisfying offering.

This review is from notes from August.

Pours clear pale gold (very little haze to speak of) with a big, patchy head that immediately recedes to a ring. Citrus, cloves and banana in the nose. Crisp wheat malt and cookie dough mingle with cloves and fruity esters. Wet grains and some slight vegetal flavors in the back. The mouthfeel is light bodied with a moderate, lively carbonation. Light hop bitterness and fruitiness in the short finish.

A decent Hefe. Could have more nuance and flavor intensity, but it covers all the bases of the style - fruity, estery, crisp. Worth a try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A - light and cloudy honey yellow, very little head which dissipated fairly evenly but very quickly, appears low carbonation

S - very nice aromas of banana, pineapple, honey, fresh cut grass, mango, hay

T - citrus, banana, orange, some very slight cinnamon spice and a slight honey after taste

M - very refreshing and cleansing, finishes wet, feels much more carbonated against the tongue which i didn't expect as i thought it was fairly low carbonation at the pour

O - I really like the Muskoka Summer Weiss, it was very refreshing and enjoyable to drink. I found the smell very nice with a lot of pleasant aromas which was very similar to the taste.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in: weizen

A - a pale yellow colour that looks slightly darker than most hefes. also less cloudy than most typical hefe's i've tried. one finger worth of head that doesn't stick around as long as most hefe's but laces well none the less.

S - nice hints of banana and spicy aromas, the two things i love most about Hefe's! i can also smell a slight hint of citrus in there.

T - The taste is similar to the smell. Lots of banana flavour and the citrus becomes more prominent (orange most likely). The spice isn't as prominent in the taste but its perfect for my liking! i can also see why some might think the taste doesn't live up to the smell, but either way i'm loving it.

M - slightly more carbonated than i expected (just perfect for me) and feels great on the tongue. very refreshing and goes down a lot smoother than i expected it too because of the carbonation. a light taste for sure with little alcohol coming through.

O - a great beer from Muskoka! i've really come to love their beers recently and this one did not dissapoint. hefe's are my favourite type of beer so i usually have high expectations and this one did just what i wanted it too! i recommend it to anyone who can get their hands on it as it is more than worth a try and could easily become one of my "go-to" summer beers.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A white head on a hazy apricot. Good head retention.

Mild fruit smells. Tastes of banana and clove. Very mild bready yeast. A mildly spicy finish with a very slight sour twist.

Vey smooth. Medium light body. Very good on tap. An understated but well-crafted Weisse.

Serving type: on-tap
