Availability: Year-round

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.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

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.
