Purchased at the LCBO for around $3.00 for a 500ml bottle. Served in a tulip at 4deg C.

A- Opens well pouring a high white head. Unfiltered and golden good. Head lasts and lasts

S- Pretty good! Enjoyable Coriander and banana hints. Slight but there

T- Pretty good. There is a hint at the end of the finish that reminds me of clove

M- Light and dry. Good

O- Pretty good. Nothing special and I will not buy again but nice to try. Good for hot weather

Food Pairing

This pretty good white beer goes well with... Spicey tuna roll sushi!

Enjoy!

L: Pours a very banana yellow color with a tall and very thick white head that takes a very long time to settle.
S: It smells of very sweet wheat malt, a lot of banana aromas, and a bit of clove at the end.
T: The taste follows the nose and enhances the experience of drinking this beer. It has a very sweet malty base underneath a big banana flavor and a bit of cloves in the end.
M: Very smooth and refreshing.
D: Very drinkable hefe as it is not overwhelming in any one area.

Poured into a weizenglas the beers color was healthy gold. Nicly saturated with yeast and properly murky. A nice white head was building, justices expected.
Smell announced fruity taste and mild hops.
Tasting the beer you had fruit like lemon, citrus and maybe a little banana and orange up front , bread and grain in the middle, nicely balanced with hops at the end.
Being born and raised in Bavaria , of course I am used to better Hefeweizen. But this is a good example of it. Very drinkable with very refreshing mouthfeel.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow hue. Not much of a head reducing to mere nothingness with no lace. Smells of banana and clove with some very subtle straw and funk. Tastes of lemon, straw, hardly any banana or anything else for that matter. Finishes flat and bland. No bottling date so I am hoping this is far past it's prime, because I was very let down by this one. Hopefully will get a fresher bottle next time and this rating will be reversed.

500ml bottle. no date. poured into weizen glass. tasted in mid-april 2009.

cloudy, golden straw w amber brown tones. big weissbier head, but fades to sudsy thin layer, then just wisps, then nothing. no lace.

aroma: banana and juicyfruit chewing gum. touch of clove. other subtle esters of apple and citrus. trace of hops. trace of gentle phenols. touch of vanilla?

taste: relatively fresh weizen flavors, though slightly watered down. more generalized fruit esters, and less specifically banana. still a trace of cloves. mild bitterness and gentle touch of acidity.

light, not too thin, but a touch astringent. spritzy carbonation sometimes helps, sometimes exacerbates astringency.

maybe this wasn't fresh? they really need to date or code their bottles.
