500ml, swing-top bottle, part of a small group of this brewery's wares to recently show up in Alberta.

This beer pours a hazy, medium golden yellow colour, with a teeming tower of puffy, finely foamy, and mildly creamy off-white head, which leaves a few instances of chunky swath lace around the glass as it slowly and not so evenly subsides.

It smells of bready, cereal-like wheat malt, a touch of caramel sweetness, bruised banana, faint clove and white pepper spice, and a gritty, if weak earthiness. The taste is plainly sweet cereal wheatiness, a bit of generic pale malt graininess, some muddled banana, apple, and pear fruity esters, sedate earthy spice, and a dead leafy and weedy hop bitterness.

The carbonation is fairly thoroughly distributed in its soft and lilting frothiness, the body an adequate middleweight, and generally smooth, but with a sort of clammy pithiness evolving as things warm up a tad. It finishes still quite sweet, but in a generally moderated sense - that breakfast cereal wheatiness really holding fast.

Not the most complex version of the style out there, but decent enough in its earnest ways. Everything just seems muddled and underdeveloped, especially if one is looking to poke, prod, and deconstruct (guilty!). However, as something to just put back on probably one of the last nice sunny days this year, a guy could do a whole heck of a lot worse.

This beer is a nice weizen but there are a lot more exciting ones out there. It was nice to try and has a little bit of own personality. But it wll not make my regulars list.

Pretty decent weizen. Fairly complex, crisp and moderate carbonation. Not the best weizen out there but still very enjoyable and refreshing. Will be lovely to drink it on a sunny day by the pool. Bottle is cute. Enjoy! :)
