Brewed by:
Muskoka Brewery
Ontario, Canada

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!

Golden coloured, aroma of bananas and a little bubblegum, this is just what a hefeweizen should be. The taste is better than most. These guys have really upped their game in recent years, in my opinion.

Pours a hazy light straw colour with considerable carbonation. Very thin, quickly dissipating white head. Aromas are heavy on bananas, with some definite clove presence, and some wheat. Tastes are of bananas, cloves, citrus. Overall, this is a very refreshing, light summer brew.

Bottle poured into a weizen glass. A cloudy bright yellow color, almost banana peel-like with rampant quick-breaking white bubbles. Aroma is strong wheat malt, a bit rank and spicy with banana esters that manage to come across more like those foamy banana 5-cent candies than the legit article, generic nondescript citrus rind, and brown spice. Palate features more of the banana gummy flavor, clove, white bread, and citrus that evolves from lemon to orange. More sour and tangy that many weizens although the tell-tale flavors are present. Maybe I should rate the flavor a little higher but the heavy carbonation and watery body left me wanting. Finish is overly crisp and not enough of the yeast lingers. Certainly has some merit but usually Muskoka provides a more satisfying offering.

This review is from notes from August.

Pours clear pale gold (very little haze to speak of) with a big, patchy head that immediately recedes to a ring. Citrus, cloves and banana in the nose. Crisp wheat malt and cookie dough mingle with cloves and fruity esters. Wet grains and some slight vegetal flavors in the back. The mouthfeel is light bodied with a moderate, lively carbonation. Light hop bitterness and fruitiness in the short finish.

A decent Hefe. Could have more nuance and flavor intensity, but it covers all the bases of the style - fruity, estery, crisp. Worth a try.
