BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Muskoka Brewery
Ontario, Canada
muskokabrewery.com

Style: Hefeweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Seasonally brewed and available in limited quantities, Muskoka Summer Weiss ("vice") is crafted with visions of summer in mind. Unfiltered and naturally hazy by design, the perfect balance of wheat, barley and subtle hopping makes this an intriguingly aromatic, flavourful and sessionable summer wheat beer. To release more flavour, agitate bottle slightly before opening. Cheers to you Summer!

A - Transparent light yellow with a thin layer of white head.

S - Sweet banana and clove aromas with a big yeast presence.

T - The yeast shows up first but with an unpleasant flavour profile. Some banana and clove notes come through. A bit messy. The flavours conflict with each other. Unpleasant.

M - Light body. Moderate carbonation.

Pint at C'Est What. Arrives a hazy golden, a couple shades darker than your average per style.

Nose is HEAVY on the banana, hint of cloves and phenols and something herbal. Pretty sweet smelling. Nice though.

Taste is too unbalanced for me - loads of banana, light bandaid phenols, spicy clove in the finish with a nice herbal coriander quality, lightly floral. On the sweet side of things, way too hefty of a body for the style, makes it seem even more muddled. A pint was enough for me, I wouldn't revisit. I know I'm in the majority but I enjoyed the previous incarnation better, more balanced and drinkable.

Second try: At The Only, heavy on the cloves and banana with a decidedly medicinal (aspirin) and bandaid note in the finish which increases with time. Really not digging this offering.

Appearance - pours bright yellow with a slight haze and a finger of white head that disspates very quickly. Fairly clear for the style.

Smell - the dominant aroma here is banana supported by a touch of clove and a tiny hint of citrus. Pleasant with no off smells, but fairly one dimensional.

Taste - sweet flavours of malt and banana with a mineral finish.

473ml can into nonic pint. enjoy before 02 sep 15. consumed on june 1, 2015

a: slightly hazy pale yellow with just over a finger of almost-white head

s: fresh bread, weak overripe bananas, slight bubblegum notes. just yeasty in general

t: huge bubblegum notes and lesser overripe bananas. wheaty bready malts emerge mid-palate but take a backseat to the lingering aforementioned flavours. finishes yeasty with no bitterness. lemon notes and more malt come out as the beer warms

m: nice light body with prickly medium carbonation

o: nothing overly interesting here but it's a tasty, truly-summer beer. let it warm up a bit

A bit of a miss. cloyingly sweet throughout. Becomes a palate destroyer as it warms up. Leaving a margin for ingestion of nano- seconds. Beer as existential dare.
