Style: Hefeweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Hey Day Hefeweizen

This unfiltered wheat ale is a West Coast favourite. Enjoy Robson St. Hefeweizen chilled in a tall, slim glass and although our brewmaster may scoff, a lemon wedge is the perfect accessory to the natural fruit flavours of this refreshing beer.

Serving Type: 341 mL Bottle

A- Hazy Pale Orange with a weak fluffy white head. Retention is virtually non-existent.

S- Fairly strong Orange Peel and Coriander with a bit of wheat malt. Standard, run-of-the-mill Hefe aroma.

T- Yeasty Banana, Astringent spices, cloves, coriander, and orange peel. Once again, standard flavours and nothing that really stands out.

M- Fairly Thick mouthfeel and oddly high carbonation (for a Hefe).

O- Nothing excellent or memorable here. Extremely similar to Shock Top (which is a good reason why it's not great).

It probably goes against the beliefs of many BA members to say this, but honestly, it's hard to well and truly fuck up the hefeweizen style. There a a few truly outstanding hefes, and there are a lot of good-to-decent hefes, but I can't think of too many hefes off the top of my head that are utterly terrible and undrinkable. It's probably why it's the style that the big brewers so often first try when they're pretending to be craft

This is one of the good-to-decent ones. It's fine. Maybe a bit weak, maybe a bit overcarbonated. But refreshing, crisp. Mildly interesting.

I ain't mad at it.

Mgood but not great. Head was non existent, bt I did take into account the pour from the bartender along with the probability that my glass may have residual soap.

Decent carbonation, just lacks overall feel and excitement. Feels artificial.

Appearance: Cloudy, orangeish-yellow color with one finger of fluffy head that fades to a ring with little lacing.

Aroma: Lots of clove and yeast, some wheat malt and a little lemon.

Taste: Starts a bit thin, withe some wheat malt and a fair amount of carbonation. Yeast and some astringent spice notes build in, but remaining pretty thin then finishing with more cloves and some lingering, mild fruitiness.

The Rest: A decent Hefe; doesn't do much to stand out from the pack but certainly hits all of the style traits.

Pretty weak in terms of drinkability. The wheat is there, but doesn't come through well. There are too many other decent hefe's out there to bother with this.
