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!

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

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.

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.
