look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

amber, hazy with a nice tow inch head at the top. Head faded to reveal a thin film, with no side glass lace. Nice visible carbonation from the bottom.

S - Lots of wheat and yeast, light with a touch of banana. Good balance, nice aroma.great wheat, earthy yeast like flavor, light with just a touch of fruit, banana and pear mostly. Not watered down, flavor has a nice pop. Light enough to just slide down, good carbonation kept it from feeling too thin, not slick, crisp and clean finish.

Superb, I could drink this all day long, the flavor and feel combine to make a perfect summer taste, great hot weather drinker.

Overall this was a damn fine hefe.

The beer formerly known as Hefe Weizen rebranded and packaged as a spring/summer seasonal in a 750 mL snap-top bottle.

Pours a nice and hazy amber-orange peel colour with a medium-sized, tight head that falls to a collar after a few minutes.

About a week after being delivered to stores, the beer smells extraordinarily fresh and bright. Citrus dominates the aroma and is accompanied by a fatty, buttery banana-like smell, coriander spiciness and honey sweetness.

The taste is just as fresh as the smell. Sweet, toasty and bready malts and citrus followed by a good dry bite. Outstanding.

The beer is very crisp, with a prickly carbonation on the tongue and a smooth, creamy and slightly syrupy aftertaste.

This is an excellent beer that I'll buy until it disappears until next year. It's far better and less sweet/syrupy than the canned variety we used to get from Muskoka.

Instructed to agitate bottle before opening it. 2012 Vintage. Pours a really solid head of foam, dies down with good lacing, and a lot of carbonation here. Colour is hazy as expected, a murky medium gold.

Nice aromas of ripe wheat, refreshing fruit, bit of malt as well, distinct and inviting.

Initial taste is strong and of fruit with orange and a bit of straw-like background. Some sweetness too, but its well-balanced. Really flavourful. Enjoy it a lot.

Mouthfeel is remarkably robust, its not full bodied, but definitely got a strong presence, quite carbonated. Finishes really nicely, refreshing.

This is a quality weiss, distinct and very exciting and flavourful.

Looks like Muskoka heard Ontarians cry out in frustration with the recent snow storm and decided to offer them a taste of summer a little early this year. 750mL swingtop bottle from the LCBO, sealed with an "Enjoy before August 1st, 2011" label.

Poured into a weizen glass. Dark tawny golden in colour, slightly opaque. Leaves a thick head which recedes quicky after a carbonation burnoff.

Nose is lovely - pale malts, light hoppage, banana, orange peel, bubblegum - the latter being especially noticeable. Smells like summer to me.

This is a sweet, slightly malty hefe (or pale wheat, it's hard to tell) that is incredibly tasty. I can see myself drinking this all summer. The usual hefe notes are subtle, but certainly pleasant.

Thicker for a hefe, carbonation is initially aggressive but settles down after a few moments, providing a late kick to the tongue with each sip.

I'll have to stand this one up to their regualar hefe to really figure out the differences between them. I think the malt character is more pronounced, and theres a bit of floral hops as well. Regardless, this is a very flavorful and enjoyable wheat beer, something I will certainly get more of when patio-drinking season begins. At just a hair over 5 bucks a bottle, this is quite reasonable. I really like what Muskoka has been doing with its seasonals, and this is certainly no exception. Pick a few up for the warm weather!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Awfully clear for a hefe as it produces a very light apricot skin orange. The carbonation is stead and ta finger of head stay around for a while.

Smell: Pretty much what I would expect from a Hefe, Banana and clove, although this one seems to have a bit more spiciness and almost a nutmeg note to it.

Taste: Starts with a mild wheat bread with a touch of banana that builds up with more citrus and apple notes that gets punctuated by a nice clove kick with a bitter note that just barely goes overboard.

Mouthfeel: Smoother then expected, superb transistioning and excellent carbonation although it leaves a little bit of a dry filmy aftertaste though, but the positives outweigh the negatives by far.

Drinkability: Yeah, this didn't last very long as the only thing the held back the beer was clove kick, which really isn't much to nitpick about. Refreshing, and I should also note it also fared quite well cold before warming.

Final Thoughts: I enjoyed the beer quite thoroughly, although I really don't know if I'd rank this one as better then their retired Hefe recipe. I mean, this one is certainly more balanced but the other one was a Banana explosion. We'll let the chips lie where they may on this one but you really should give this beer a shot.

750ml swinging pop top poured into tulip May16,2011

A cloudy golden orange that's cloudy enough that I can't see the bubbles, they do however spawn a fast falling two finger bone white head that leaves zero lace

S banana, dry cereal, lemon and some yeasty spice and some very faint soap

T some bubblegum comes out and there's just a little more earthy spice then I could smell, somehow everything mingles just right and this is what I think the stereotypical Hefe should taste like, the bananas just a little bruised compared to the smell but I always liked my banana just a little overripe anyways

M light and fluffy due to a decent amount of carbonation, lingering flavors stick to my lips well after the liquids in my tummy

O When I visualize a Hefe I think of a big ass, hard to fit into my over sized glass, top hat of foam that just lasts forever, this was not that beer. Other then the look of this one everything else was exactly what I look for in this style

Another kick ass Hefe from Central Canada, that's right Ontario your not Eastern Canada from where I sit in Alberta. (got in a fight today with a dude from Ontario who didn't believe me that there's more Provinces East of Ontario then West of it) And when I say "Another" I suppose I'm referring to Denison's and that's the only other I can think of. Thanks liamt07 for sending me this hidden gem and knocking yet another want off my list

Appearance - beer pours a cloudy ale colour, very lively head. there is some good carbonation levels as well. the head is a white, light in volume and very active. lot of air pockets. there is some minimal lacing.

Smell - one of my favourite smells, banana! there is a good banana smell to this beer along with some orange hints. maybe there is a slight hint of citrus as well.

Taste - very smooth, amazing tasting beer. the bitterness is faint but present, there isnt much aftertaste. i can pick up the banana combined with a citrus hint.

Mouthfeel - some added carbonation, although not much. maintains a light feel and is very smooth.

Overall - I think this is one of muskoka's top beers, one of the best releases. I will buy more and keep on hand, look forward to many more beers from muskoka!

750 mL swing-top bottle from the LCBO; 2012 vintage. I love this time of year for various reasons - and the fact that there is no shortage of wheat beers on shelves right now is a significant one. Rolled the bottle a bit before opening, as per instructions, and served only slightly chilled.

Pours a sunny golden-yellow colour - foggy, but not murky or totally opaque like some hefes. Highly effervescent - and with one impressive pillowy white head. I had to pour my pint slowly over a period of minutes so that it wouldn't erupt out of the glass - sort of like a delicious baking soda volcano. When it finally does settle into a rocky, one-finger head, the glass is caked in lacing. The aroma is great as well - yeasty with lots of banana, peach, apricot esters and some light citrus. Good wheat malt backbone with some grassy hops underlying it all, but not much clove. Still, it's pretty enticing so far.

The taste does not disappoint at all. Wheat malt sweetness and the yeastiness provide a firm backbone for the variety of fruity flavours. Banana is probably the most prominent one, but I would also mention the orange peel, ripe pear and juicy apricot, as well as an understated clove spiciness. A bit chewy for a 5%er, with a yeasty, slightly dry aftertaste. Medium-bodied, with spritzy carbonation that helps cut through the chew - just the way I like my hefes. Relatively light mouthfeel for the style, but the improved drinkability vs. other examples is noted.

Muskoka's Summer Weiss is a superb hefe; nailing most of the things I like about the style, but with a few added twists that give it a unique, memorable character. I skipped out on Muskoka's winter seasonal (Winter Beard), but I am sort of regretting that after seeing the quality of this one. Oh well, the seasons change - to everything turn, turn, turn and all that nonsense. Turn your vehicle into the parking lot of your local LCBO and pick this one up while you still can.

[Updated June 14 2014]

This brew made the move to six-packs last year, which I think is probably a better format than two giant bottles in an awkward cardboard container. I picked a pack up to see if this hefe still stands strong amongst my favourite examples of the style - and for the most part, it still does. This is one of the better Canadian-made traditional wheat beers I've tried over the years, and even though it's not the best hefe in the world it's still very easy to like (and drink!).

Final Grade: 4.20, an A-.

Appearance: It has a nice cloudy yellow/golden colour to it. It has a nice white head that dies down quite fast and has minimal lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of spices, oranges, citrusy fruit and yeast.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a very nice orange burst with some banana, citrusy fruit and a bit of bready malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance of flavours.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavours and aromas. Props to Muskoka Brewery for this great summer beer.

A new offering from an Ontario brewery that has been turning heads lately. This one presented in a beautiful 750ml bottle like the other "seasonal" offerings

Bottle advises you to agitate before pouring. I shouted a few insults at it -- nothing really exciting happened save my wife and cat having a laugh at me.

2011 edition, served at 53 degrees.

A: An agitated pour yields a bright white and dense 2 finger head atop a cloudy straw colored beer. Retention and lacing is not remarkable.

S: Really well done clove, bannana, bubble gum -- standard weiss territory. Suggestions of basil, mint, and soil.

T: Nails this hefe category to the wall. Dension's? You have some competition here.

M: Summer Weiss Feels really hardy. A good hefe should always give the impression that there's bales and bales of wheat in every glass and this definitely accomplishes that. A little sticky on the lips, a little dry at the finish.

Overall: I often say it is hard to make a bad a wheat beer, but honestly it's just as hard to make a really good one too, and this is really good. Good competition to Dension's and Blanche de Chambly for the King of Canadian Weiss.

750 ml swing top bottle.
New release, now in large format bottle vs cans.

Pours into a pilsner glass a hazy light yellow with a good amount of bright white foamy head that holds well. Nose is light fruits, banana esters, floral, cloves and a yeast auroma. Taste is similiar; lots of banana and bubblegum flavour mixed with other fruits and lingering yeast. Though the initial punch remains flavourful. Light to medium bodied, smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Overall I have to say this is a decent beer and brought more than I initially thought it might. Easy drinking and nice low abv means it's perfect for the approaching weather. There's some discussion about this being the same version that was in cans and it's been changed to seasonal, put in a vintage bottle and costs more. I can't speak to much of that, and while I think the "vintage 2011" on the label is silly, I did enjoy this bottle and believe it would make a better seasonal beer than year round. Muskokas seasonal bottles have been 2/2 for me being excellent, I tried their sampler can pack last year and walked away unimpressed, so needless to say I think they are making great strides.

Bottle from the LCBO, 750ml swingtop. My understanding is that this is a reworking of the Hefe they had going in cans for a while, but they've made this a seasonal release instead with a few recipe tweaks. Best before August 1, 2011.

Pours a pale orange, with a finger of bubbly white head that leaves minimal retention and lace. Lots of carbonation evident in the body; unfiltered. Nose holds banana, alot of bubblegum, wheat and maybe a touch of spice. Taste is quite nice, full bodied banana, wheat and bubblegum are clear again, and contrary to what I had anticipated based on the appearance, the carbonation is only evident near the end of the mouthfeel. This was a great drinker, and this could become a staple this summer. One of the best hefeweizens I've had from this province. Great work Muskoka!

Glowing, hazy honey colour with lots of visible carbonation. Awesome Weihenstephaner-style giant, rocky off-white head. Great retention and lacing.

Tons of banana, candy malt, coriander and clove with a juicy citrus edge. A hint of herbal hops. Really nice smell.

Great balance of everything you'd want in a weisse: banana, bubblegum, clove, coriander. The candy malt pairs really well with a slightly-drying herbal finish. The only improvement could be a more intense flavour; it's not explosive in the way Weihenstephaner is.

The feel could definitely be beefed up. Decent medium-light body and light carbonation.

I'm pretty impressed, this is one of the better weisse beers I've had. Extremely drinkable; this 750ml would be no problem to finish off alone. $6 is not a terrible price for a beer of this quality in such a nice bottle. I'll be picking up more of this for sure.

Props to peensteen for the hook-up on this bad boy...

A - Pours a slightly hazy pale golden colour, finger of big bubled head with decent retention and no real lacing.

S - Scent is dominated by sweet cloves, bananas, orange citrus, some musty caramel and a lingering bitter citrus rind.

T - Loaded with flavour with the cloves and banana notes continuing to dominate. A bold wheat flavour lingers on the tongue alongside some sweet tangerine and a hint of grassy hops.

M - Light bodied ale that fills the mouth, but goes down smooth and finishes wet.

O - A tasty hefe and a must try for any fan of the style. It is indeed a perfect summer ale and I'm super glad I was able to grab a few bottles.

Its fruity golden orange body is hazed like a hefe should be. The head, however, doesn't fit the style. After an aggressive pour, no more than a finger's worth of quickly receding whispy white head is yeilded.

Wow. The nose quickly makes up for the appearance. Overly ripened brown spotted bananas burst from the glass. Fresh lemon peel adds a bit of a twang to the doughy wheat character that sits in the back. Very sweet and not overly complex.

Sweet through and through. A fresh breadiness provides the base where sugar coated bananas sit on top. Some lemon peel at the front gives a refreshing feel.

Light to medium bodied with a semi-creamy feel. Great balance with a good carbonated kick. A perfect summer beer being very refreshing.

This, for me, tops Denison's as my favourite Ontario Hefe. Muskoka's seasonal releases have all been fantastic and this is of no exception.

My weizen glass looks like a science center exhibit. The fury of these bubbles is fantastic: they attack the solid, studded surface like seething flames but are actually bounced from it and left to bobble there momentarily before finally being able to amalgamate into the big bed of foam. The bright, golden beer actually looks like a children's ball pit.

Muskoka could not have gotten much closer to the mark they aimed to hit - this thing seems every bit as German as Volkswagen or Lederhosen, despite that it's not even brewed on the same continent! There isn't much spice in the nose, but mushed bananas and traces of vanilla are noted, also a very perceivable tangy lemony flavour.

Some German weiss beers have a lot of clove and spiciness, others are more fruity and tout notes of banana and bubblegum - this one does both. Tiny, red-hot phenols - courtesy of a bona fide German yeast strain - lightly singe the tongue with a fresh pepper zest. Ramped-up carbonation intensifies this with prickling, sharp-toothed bubbles.

On the other hand, ample wheat malt has ensured a mouthfeel that is lusciously creamy, an ideal habitat in which drops of sweet vanilla and over-ripening banana can thrive. It is these flavours, and not the clove-like spice, that persevere in the aftertaste. Lemony, citrus acidity is splashed in there too. Bitterness, as you'd expect, is virtually omitted.

If I had to choose only ten brands of beer to drink for the rest of my life, I think at least two of them would probably be weizens. I love this distinctive, refreshing style and its consumption has become an integral part of my spring and summer rituals. Muskoka's is a very pleasant, credible example and it's something I'm sure I'll be buying again.

***2011 Vintage***

Thanks to TheSevenDuffs for this one.

Poured from a 750ml. bottle and shared with my wife.

Appearance: Generous off-white head tops a faintly cloudy yellow body. Good retention and average lacing.

Smell: Bubblegum, bread, strong cloves, banana and plump fruit. Nice & full.

Taste: Bready dough, overripe bananas, strong wheat tones, plump orange and spices. Light on the citrus. Pretty good.

Mouthfeel: Feels oddly flat a little at first. Other than that, full and smooth.

Overall: A good flavorful beer. Body was a bit weird at first but got used to it. An overall strong showing.

Pours a cloudy light peach with a thin white head. Nice lacing and carbonation.

Smells winey and fruity upfront with cloves and various spices. Some orange peel yeast also.

Tastes like it smells, somewhat winey, yeasty, very fruity, some banana, orange, cloves, pear. Very refreshing!

One of the best Hefe's I've had in a while, very interesting. Lots of subtle flavours in this beer not found in typical Hefe's.

Served in: weizen

A - a pale yellow colour that looks slightly darker than most hefes. also less cloudy than most typical hefe's i've tried. one finger worth of head that doesn't stick around as long as most hefe's but laces well none the less.

S - nice hints of banana and spicy aromas, the two things i love most about Hefe's! i can also smell a slight hint of citrus in there.

T - The taste is similar to the smell. Lots of banana flavour and the citrus becomes more prominent (orange most likely). The spice isn't as prominent in the taste but its perfect for my liking! i can also see why some might think the taste doesn't live up to the smell, but either way i'm loving it.

M - slightly more carbonated than i expected (just perfect for me) and feels great on the tongue. very refreshing and goes down a lot smoother than i expected it too because of the carbonation. a light taste for sure with little alcohol coming through.

O - a great beer from Muskoka! i've really come to love their beers recently and this one did not dissapoint. hefe's are my favourite type of beer so i usually have high expectations and this one did just what i wanted it too! i recommend it to anyone who can get their hands on it as it is more than worth a try and could easily become one of my "go-to" summer beers.

Pours perfect banana yellow. Hazy and lightly milky. White head that did not last. Nose is a bouquet of crisp wheat,banana and clove. A hint of bubblegum. It has a seductive but restrained herbal in the background. Taste is wheat , a little bread, thin body and a citrusy back note to the mid palate. The clove and spice stays balanced in the drink and so does the banana. That herbal is a lightness in the drink. Carbonation is active. Finishes a touch thin and with no real bitterness from hops. A light malt resonance and the fruit lingers a bit . Nice!

Pours a hazy pale orange colour that starts out with huge head. The head dissipates very quickly, no real lacing. Smells of banana, with lots of citrus and some wheat malt. Nice sweet flavour with a hint if bitterness. Aftertaste of banana and oranges. I really enjoyed the old hefe from Muskoka, but I think I prefer this one.

Appearance- Pours a hazy pale straw with two fingers of bubbly frothy head.

Smell- Yeast, banana, clove, spicy aromas

Taste- Banana and clove come in nicely with the yeast and the spicy characteristic. There is a breadiness to this brew and faint grassy hops and grainy malts are present. The beer finishes wet.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Has a pleasant smoothness.

Overall- An enjoyable Hefeweizen by Muskoka. This beer stays true to the characteristics of the style. The banana and clove are not too overpowering which is good. This beer is definitely good for a hot summer Albertan day!

A = poured a piullowy two finger head - good carbonation - paychy lacing - beautiful orange wheat color - cloudy

S - bananas, wheat and orange

T - bananas, biscuits and cloves - then a little orange peel - then a lot more orange - as it opened up the orange peel became more apparent and in fact it became a little unbalanced at the end - scored it based on the first half

M - medium body and plenty of carbonation - a little dry and sour in the finish - very noce overall

O - really enjoyed the first half of this beer - upon the first sip I felt I had tasted something special however as it opened up it seemed to lose its centre and was a little unbalanced

Can: Poured a lightly hazy dirty orangey color ale with a rather large foamy head with average retention and no lacing. Aroma of bubblegum and banana is very nice. Taste is also a nice mix between some banana bread and bubblegum 3ith some quite delectable wheat malt. Body is about average with great carbonation. Very well done with some really interesting ester.
