Can 29.08.16. Slightly aroma of wheat, yeast and clove. Dark brown coloured beer, medium hazy. Light beige 3 fingered head, reduces to flat with poor lacing. In taste wheat, clover with addition of dough yeast. Nice sour aftertaste with medium hopiness. Low carbonation, alcohol isn't perceptible. Quite nice dunkel weizen, but too watery.

500ml can, day 16 of the Costco Canada 2014 Beer Advent calendar. Sigh, another pain in the ass beer to track down ownership, blah blah blah, so Imma just gonna go with what it sez on the freaking label.

This beer pours a rather murky, dark copper amber hue, with a fistful of puffy, foamy, and somewhat creamy tan head, which leaves some streaky ocean wavecrest lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of sugary and grainy wheat malt, a bit of caramel pudding, weirdly phenolic yeast, rotting bananas, and some nail-polish remover adjacent alcohol measures. The taste is more of the same, but thankfully dialed back a bit - generic caramel and wheat malt, ethereal clove and white pepper spice, fugly yeast, weak bruised banana esters, and a still burbling acetone-friendly booziness.

The carbonation is pretty tame, just a mild frothiness, um, abounding, the body a so-so medium weight, a tad thin, and getting clammier as it warms. It finishes off-dry, the blended malt persisting, while the various side players fade into welcome obscurity.

Wow - I've never had the malt liquor chokies with a hefeweizen before, like I did here - that phenolic character could very well compete with the blurst of Minhas. Anyways, a cheap-ass dunkel, as if the obfuscated production origins weren't clue enough, i.e. something called 'United Distributors' or the like, who do not exactly instill in me any sort of confidence of quality.
