-A very sessionable hefeweizen if drank cold
-Subdued banana and clove compared to others of this style
-As it warms, some metallic harshness comes though
-Maybe fermented a little too cold (or fermented with a strain that throws off too few phenols) for my liking

Appearance- Cloudy amber with one finger frothy head that sits on top all the way down. Well carbonated with lots of bubbles. Leaves good lacing.

Smell- Banana bread, yeasty smell, touch of lemon.

Taste- Quite dry. Nice contrast of bitter flavours, wheat and yeast, touch of toffee. The flavours stay on the palate for a while. Easy to drink, refreshing, smooth wheat beer.

Mouthfeel- Starts off creamy but thins out a bit half way down the glass , however, a refreshing beer.

Overall- A tasty well made wheat beer that is very refreshing, would definitely buy again, this beer would go down well chilled on a hot summers day.

Another treat procured in Winnipeg...

A - Pours a hazy golden colour, thumb of egg white head with solid retention and sporadic lacing.

S - Scent dominated by bready wheat, hints of clove and peppery spice.

T - Nice bready malts with a citrus bitterness, hints of clove and bananas. The bitterness lingers alongside a dose of grassy wheat.

M - Medium bodied, extremely smooth and a touch of dryness on the finish.

O - Incredibly drinkable, solid flavour profile and a tasty example of the style. This is a great go-to hefe, and certainly worth a try if you're a fan of the style.

from notes
A - Completely swampy yellow brown, thumb of white head retained at a thin covering with consistent lacing

S - Strong eastery aromas of sour fruit, herbs and spices, light grainy

T - Starts with some graininess, yeasy flavours much more subdued, somewhat mineral flavour, a little dissapointing given the aromatic promise

M - Lightish body, slightly flat, light bready finish

O - A decent start led to mediocrity, a little on the bland side for a german hefe
