Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: liamt07 on 03-25-2011

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!

Pint at C'Est What. Arrives a hazy golden, a couple shades darker than your average per style.

Nose is HEAVY on the banana, hint of cloves and phenols and something herbal. Pretty sweet smelling. Nice though.

Taste is too unbalanced for me - loads of banana, light bandaid phenols, spicy clove in the finish with a nice herbal coriander quality, lightly floral. On the sweet side of things, way too hefty of a body for the style, makes it seem even more muddled. A pint was enough for me, I wouldn't revisit. I know I'm in the majority but I enjoyed the previous incarnation better, more balanced and drinkable.

Second try: At The Only, heavy on the cloves and banana with a decidedly medicinal (aspirin) and bandaid note in the finish which increases with time. Really not digging this offering.

Appearance - pours bright yellow with a slight haze and a finger of white head that disspates very quickly. Fairly clear for the style.

Smell - the dominant aroma here is banana supported by a touch of clove and a tiny hint of citrus. Pleasant with no off smells, but fairly one dimensional.

Taste - sweet flavours of malt and banana with a mineral finish.

Purchased as a single at the LCBO served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well but pours no head. Unfiltered

S- Yeast

T- Smoke! Lightly smoked beer. Guess in Muskoka away from civilization the fire constantly burns! LOL

M- Ok at best. This one is watery.

O- Ok but not great. If I could break up my ratings you would see that taste was high but smell poor

Food Pairing

This ok beer went well with....... BBQ hamburgers

Enjoy

Pours a hazy light straw colour with considerable carbonation. Very thin, quickly dissipating white head. Aromas are heavy on bananas, with some definite clove presence, and some wheat. Tastes are of bananas, cloves, citrus. Overall, this is a very refreshing, light summer brew.

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.
