Notes/Commercial Description:
This unfiltered wheat ale is a West Coast favourite. Enjoy Robson St. Hefeweizen chilled in a tall, slim glass and although our brewmaster may scoff, a lemon wedge is the perfect accessory to the natural fruit flavours of this refreshing beer.

Granville Island Robson Street Hefeweizen. Lot's of souvenir.
The look its more like a Orange golden color. A cloudy appearance. You can t see trough the class.The carbonation looks really good.
The smell is really fruity. You have that strong banana smell coming out with a touch a citrus behind it. Remind of the smell of the Hoegaarden. Very very fruity. I really enjoy the smell. It was original like the Hoegaarden, like the 1664 blanc.
The taste of it is absolutely gorgeous. Everything that smell before you drink the beer is there. The same banana smell with that touch of citrus behind it. The 5 ABV alcohol makes it really refreshing and you barely notice the touch of the alcohol. Its very nice and I give a 4/5 because it is close to those Hoegaarden and the 1664 blanc.
So would I recommend it ? Damn Yes !! Grab one if you can even if it's not on special. As an alternative to the Hoegaarden it is the best one. You won t be disappointed.

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.
