A: Can't really say had it straight from the bottle take this review liberally.
S: I get some clove, a hint of banana and the signature hefeweizen bready yeast character.
T: Hefe yeast charachter is the dominant flavor although everything is a bit subdued. A little bit of wheat malt. Banana with clove as well. Some what of a generic Hefe.
M: A touch prickly with a thinner body.
O: A good hefe, not much else to say.

3.7/5 rDev +6%
A: Very cloudy banana orange mixture, with some visible carbonation, 3 fingers of off white head which fades in a few minutes leaving random lacing.
S: Bananas, cloves, honey, that typical yeastiness of this style of beer, bubble gum much like the kind that came in baseball cards.
T: Lemon, honey, cloves and bubblegum, this one has a good lemon like tartness.
M: Medium slightly acidic and bready body, very little carbonation.
O: Well crafted beer by Granville Island. More lemony than others in this style I've had.

Had this on tap at the Old Spaghetti Factory, served with a lemon wedge (which I immediately discarded). Cloudy with flavours of banana, clove, wheat and yeast. I wasn't expecting anything much, since this is Granville Island, but I was actually very pleasantly surprised. Turns out Granville Island actually makes a decent hefeweizen. I think I would say I actually prefer it to King Heffy (blasphemy, right?), but maybe I need to compare them back to back to be fair. In any case, I definitely plan to get this one again, and not because I plan on being at a restaurant where there are few other options.
