750ml bottle, part of a two-pack, readily available almost everywhere here in Alberta.
This beer pours a cloudy, very pale golden hue, with a tumultuous boil of thin foamy, billowy white head, which settles at a snail's waiting room pace, eventually rendering some attractive chain mail fence lace around the glass.
It smells of grainy, semi-sweet toasted bready wheat malt, a touch of caramelized barley, sharp banana phenols, somewhat astringent earthy yeast, and some mild leafy, musty hops. The taste is sweet bready wheat malt up front and in your face, followed timidly by some banana loaf notes, restrained edgy yeast, and more nicely hovering leafy green hops.
The bubbles are a tad frothy, but generally even and supportive, the body an assured medium weight, for the style, of course, and actually rather smooth, with only a tiny snag from the yeast. It finishes off-dry, the various malts still running the show, with the attendant fruitiness, and a bit of lingering banana and clove esters.
A decent weiss, I can agree on that - big and malty, but with just enough spice and yeast to keep things in a nice Canadian order, i.e., one where you would gladly step over someone to get another. Beer, at least...
