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.

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.

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!

An oblique yellow color, with foamy head, good retention and decent lacing.

A perfumy aroma (Bavarian yeast) with wheat malt undernotes.

Quite a strong taste, an impressive mix with some spice notes.

The beer is Full bodied with good carbonation.

From their Master Brewer line. Well recommended.

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!

12oz. bottle: This one pours a hazy orangish color. There was a wisp of a white head that left no lacing. It has a lighter nose. Some wheat, citrus and banana. The taste is good. Wheat, a touch peppery and some faint banana.
