Single bottle from Broue Ha Ha in Gatineau.

Poured into a stange. Hazy caramel-golden in colour, with a billowing head of foam that quickly recedes into a thin, but sturdy ring. Some lacing icicles.

Nose is banana, mild clove, bread crust, some floral notes.

Surprisingly good hefeweizen, smooth and balanced between fruit, grain and spice, with none of the three dominant flavors gaining the upper hand. Finishes dry with a hint of citrus.

Solid brew, would certainly pick up again. This brew was a nice surprise!

I'm not expecting a lot from this one...

Beer is copper in color, veiled. Nice foamy head on top of it. Small bubbles. The aroma is intense. Bananas, some cloves. For Belle Gueule, the aroma is intense... Usually it's light... I like this, very nice aroma. On the taste, it's delicious. Bananas, cloves, fruity with a finish that's slightly spicy. Medium body. Refreshing. Very hot beer for hot summer!

I'm quite pleased... A truly good beer.

Poured into big wheat beer glass, as per suggestion on bottle.

Appearance: Beautiful Orangey Amber color, and gold at narrowest point of wheat glass. Slighlt hazy, but expected it to be hazier. One finger white head which disspipated at moderate speed. Constant bubbles rising.

Nose: skunky yeast, sweetness, banana chips, bubble gum, orange crush, very summery fresh aroma overall.

Taste: Banana bread, cereals, yeast.

Mouth: Light bodied with perfect medium carbonation. Almost like a san pellegrino type soft carbonation.

Overall: I drifted from my usual style in my last beer run. I picked up a couple blondes, whites, wheat beers including this one. I'm really enjoying it on this warm september day!

Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow color weizen with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of fresh banana bread ester with solid wheat malt notes is quite enjoyable. Taste is a refreshing mix between some huge notes of banana ester with loads of wheat malt and some light cloves notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation. I’m totally impressed by that one and I had kind of given up on RJ coming –up with something so good.

341ml Bottle from Broue Haha QC for 1.99+tax

Appearance – Hazy copepr colour with an above average size frothy off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains/wheat, banana, clove/coriander

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an above average amount of carbonation. I can taste grains/bread mixed with lots of banana. There is also a yeasty coriander/clove spiciness. It ends with a grainy banana aftertaste.

Overall – Pretty good stuff.. definitely one of the best beer's I've had from this brewer. There's something a little chalky in the scent, but it doesn't come through in the taste. The banana also doesn't taste too artificial like some other hefe's do. Worth trying.

Belle Gueule Hefeweizen, one of the most interesting beer.
The smell is great, strong smell I will say.
The color is a golden color very light in the glasse.
The carbonation is good. Not too high, not too low.
Now for the taste, I was not really impressed about it compare to the Blonde Ale Belle Gueule or the Red Ale Belle Gueule.
I mean its not bad but Belle Gueule have some better one for my taste.
So would I recommend it ? Yes... but, if you have the option of other Belle Gueule take the other option.

Thanks to Papat444 for this one.

Looks like BB Feb 13, 2013

Beer is a cloudy golden/orange. Good-sized white head fades at a moderate pace. A bit of lace.

Smell is intensely of banana and bubblegum. Smells like candy. Some clove there as well but not as much,.

Taste is similar to the nose. Banana city, lots of bubblegum. Clove is more prominent than in the nose. Wheat, of course. The banana is too strong for me, but generally pretty good.Aftertaste is a bit off.

Medium bodied, highly carbonated. Pretty true to style.

Overall, not bad. I find the banana flavour to be too intense, but it is certainly a flavourful beer.

Nice light amber in color with a huge white head.

Bread and banana aromas.

Not a bad taste, still pretty standard for n Hefeweizen, banana notes with wheat flavors.

Pretty easy to drink and nice mouth feel.
